URC Adds More Connected Devices to Total Control iOS App

Lutron, Proliphix, seven new A/V receivers, KNX now part of URC Total Control home automation ecosystem with two-way control via mobile app.

URC is quickly adding more drivers to its Total Control home automation ecosystem, announcing iOS support for two-way control of more than a dozen new products.

The latest version of Total Control Mobile offers two-way control of URC’s DMS-AV Network Home Theater Amplifier Processor and THZ-100 smart thermostat.

Drivers are also now available for several popular third-party devices: audio/video receivers from Denon, Integra, Marantz, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sony and Yamaha; Lutron RadioRA 2 lighting; Proliphix thermostats; and TED (The Energy Detective) electricity monitor.

Total Connect now supports two-way communications with KNX, the international building standard for integration and automation of a wide variety of residential products. Popular in Europe, KNX is supported by scores of manufacturers that have deployed hundreds of compatible devices including lighting controls, switches, gateways, motorized shades, security systems, thermostats and more.

URC’s Total Control Mobile app is available for download to iPads, iPhones and the iPod Touch. Notably, there is no per-device fee added, as with many control systems.

All apps downloaded are simply activated by the URC dealer for a one-time setup fee of $199. Once the app is activated, additional devices can be added, and updates can be implemented at any time in the future for no additional charge.

I am trying to understand how to sell this product when there are excellent, easy to use and very powerful products out there for much less.  Take for example Roomie Remote.
