URC has unveiled a new addition to URC’s Total Control system, the TRC-1480 handheld remote with voice control. Featuring push-to-talk voice control, a 2.4-inch touchscreen LCD for display of 2-way meta data, hard buttons, and an ergonomic design, the TRC-1480 is will be available for sale in November 2019.
The TRC-1480 features an integrated microphone for voice communication with Alexa or Siri (for Apple TV). Support for additional voice services will be added with future firmware upgrades.
Ergonomically placed finger grooves and a satin finish on the underside of the remote, as well as evenly distributed weight of 8 ounces (226 grams), allow for the TRC-1480 to balance in the end users’ hand. Strategically placed tactile hard buttons ensure intuitive control without having to look at the remote and 2.4-inch LCD touch screen to select which room to control and to display short cuts, favorites, meta data, graphics, and backgrounds to aid the end user in controlling their entire building. Authorized installers can custom program the remote thanks to URC’s Accelerator programming software.
URC also includes a docking station to charge the TRC-1480’s Li-ion battery. Furthermore, the remote features a pick-up sensor to conserve battery life, which wakes the remote when lifted off a coffee table or from the docking station. Featuring URC’s Quick-Connect Wi-Fi, the TRC-1480 connects to the Wi-Fi network instantly without consuming power during standby mode.
The new TRC-1480 provides full control URC’s Total Control 2.0 system, including control of televisions, cable and satellite boxes, audio video components, music systems, lighting systems, security cameras, door locks, thermostats, motorized shades, and more. Sold only through selected direct dealers, URC Total Control 2.0 is URC’s whole-facility automation and control system featuring customizable GUIs and third-party integration.
