URC’s Total Control products were updated with a two-way integration module that seamlessly communicates with Philips Hue Personal Lighting. The module allows users to control the intensity and color temperature (from a cool bluish white to a warm yellowish white) of Hue lamps that are connected to the home wireless network, from their URC devices.
The Hue system consists of user-replaceable LED lamps that screw directly into existing sockets. It is also compatible with Android and iOS apps.
Additional features include the ability to control all Hue devices from Total Control interfaces, create and edit Lighting Scenes and Groups, and add Macro commands to recall a specific light level, color, or color temperature. The new Philips Hue two-way module is also compatible with ccGEN2 interfaces including keypads, the RM-2 remote, and ccGEN2-iOS app. ccGEN2 products are sold through distributors; the Total Control line is sold via direct URC dealers only.
This URC Total Control module was developed independently by Extra Vegetables with assistance and support of URC, and is available for purchase from Extra Vegetables.
“This is the latest of several control modules Extra Vegetables has built for our Total Control whole-house automation product line,” said Cat Toomey, director of marketing at URC. “We encourage all authorized Total Control dealers to take advantage of Extra Vegetables’ generous free 14-day demo offer to find out firsthand what all the excitement is about.”
The module can be downloaded by authorized URC Total Control dealers and ccGEN2 dealers from Extra Vegetables’ website.
