RTI Unveils Pro Control Division with 2 New Remotes
Remote controls target custom installers and feature color OLED touchscreens, Windows-based programmability and ZigBee communication.
Pro Control, a newly created division of Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI), has unveiled a new line of remote control technology targeted for custom installers.
The initial Pro Control lineup includes:
- PRO-24.z Remote—Features a color OLED touchscreen display capable of controlling components via 433-MHz RF or receiving feedback from devices such as A/V receivers, lighting systems, iPods and HVAC thermostats utilizing ZigBee technology.
- PRO-24.i Remote—It has a color touchscreen for one-way IR control at lower price point.
Both remotes use wizard-style Windows-based programming.
The central processors, dubbed include the PROLINK.4 and PROLINK.z, operate via 433-MHz RF communication to operate electronic systems reliably while the powerful PROLINK.z control processor enables two-way ZigBee communication and feedback with A/V receivers, iPods, lights, HVAC systems and more.
In addition to touting the ergonomic design, Mike Everett, general manager of Pro Control, says consumers “are looking for intuitive, professional-grade solutions that can be tailored to their specific needs.” He says the new remotes “meet these tough demands by providing powerful control over even the most complex systems — all at a great value.”
