URCwill now begin shipping its LED Lighting to Authorized Dealers and Distributors. The LED Lighting is a ZigBee based wireless lighting control system that was introduced at CES. These new, affordable products are so easy to install that no high voltage experience or electrician is required for installation.
The initial URC LED Lighting products include an A19 standard lamp bulb, a BR30 “high hat” lamp bulb and the TRF-GT1, a ZigBee controller that can sit anywhere on a network. The new URC LED Lighting lineup will be followed within just weeks by URC’s also new Vivido two-way designer RF lighting solutions.
“Our new LED Lighting lineup was enthusiastically received by dealers at CES,” said Cat Toomey, Director of Marketing at URC. “Now, with two completely new lines of lighting from URC, dealers have more options than ever before to satisfy customers’ needs, moods, and interests. And both of these come on the heels of our new Lutron Caseta two-way driver released in December.”
A few key features of URC LED Lighting include dimming capability when installed as part of a Total Control or ccGEN2 installation, user-adjustable lighting scenes and status feedback of availability on a smartphone, tablet or any URC interface. Bulbs can be “grouped” so that up to 11 lamps can be dimmed Up and Down, and sent On and Off commands as if they are one single bulb. The new URC LED light bulbs save energy and are expected to last longer than 20+ years based upon normal usage.
