Remote Technologies (RTI) is shipping the latest addition to its XP family of control processors, the XP-6.
The XP-6 offers a variety of control options, including two-way RS-232, relay, IP, and routable IR. The processor features support for RTI 433-MHz receivers for one-way RF communication, and ZigBee 2.4-GHz transceivers can be incorporated for more sophisticated bidirectional communication with an RTI in-wall or handheld controller.
The XP-6 features an astronomical clock for time-based events, and utilizes two-way drivers for AV, security, lighting, and HVAC systems. These drivers provide the user with instant feedback, delivering information such as play lists, the status of a security system, climate information, and weather forecasts. The XP-6 also supports RTI's Virtual Panel, which allows users to control and monitor an RTI system from any PC running Microsoft Windows.
"We are pleased to say that the latest and greatest installment of our XP series of processors is now shipping," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "The XP-6 offers everything needed to take complete control over any electronic environment. The processor's built-in astronomical clock allows users to automate all aspects of their environment, including climate, lighting, music, and much more. In addition, its range of control options makes it suitable for any installation, while its ability to receive two-way feedback from third-party devices offers the ultimate in convenience. Add to that support for the RTI Virtual Panel, and you've got one amazing processor at a great value."
The XP-6 is available now at an MSRP of $599.
