Crestron has released the PLX3 Prodigy Handheld Remote, its new long range remote control for Prodigy home automation systems.
The PLX3 Prodigy Handheld Remote.
The PLX3 combines long-range performance and customizability with ergonomics and affordability for push-button control of lights, thermostats, multiroom audio, home theaters, security systems and more, according to the company. The high-performance 2.4 GHz mesh network increases the strength and reliability of the entire wireless network, resulting in longer range operation and total whole house control from any room.
“PLX3 combines the speed, simplicity and reliability of IR/RF remotes with the long-range mobility of WiFi,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of technology. “You can control your whole home without worrying about the common gripes of WiFi such as delays in button response and intermittent signal interruptions.”
“Whether watching TV in the theater, searching movie and song libraries, or setting thermostats and lighting levels, PLX3 puts every house control and home entertainment function in the palm of your hand,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron director of marketing.
According to Crestron, the PLX3 stays charged for 4-6 months on four homeowner-replaceable lithium AA batteries.
