URC Debuts New Handheld Remote for Complete Control

URC MX-490 Remote Control

URC has announced the launch of the MX-490, an easy-to-program, handheld remote designed to control IR devices throughout a home. This programmable, handheld remote can directly control every IR device in the home — TV, AV components, cable, satellite boxes, and more. It is designed for use in home theaters, kitchens, or bedrooms.

The MX-490 features a 2-inch color LCD screen able to control up to 48 devices. When used with a compatible Complete Control base station, like the MRF-350 and MRF-260, the MX-490 controls integrated AV components through walls and cabinet doors, or even from outside. There is no need to point the remote control at the components or even be in the same room.

Advanced benefits of this new touchscreen include:

  • Ergonomically designed handheld remote with brilliant 2-inch color LCD screen
  • Displays up to six buttons per screen
  • Delivers one-way control of IR devices
  • Operates on standard AA alkaline batteries
  • Hand programmed eliminating the need for software

URC Total Control is the flagship automation and control system in the URC portfolio. Complete Control delivers reliable, entry-level entertainment control via handheld remote or mobile app. Complete Control products are sold through certified URC dealers and authorized distributors.

URC will be showcasing this new remote, as well as its complete product line, at booth #19002 during CEDIA 2022 in late September.
