Foster City, CA - Pakedge Device & Software announced today that its RB-KIT Preconfigured Enterprise-Class Router and Security Appliance has been approved for use with Control4® systems.


The RB-KIT Preconfigured Enterprise-Class Router and Security Appliance offers high-performance routing and robust security protection for custom installation audio/video systems and home networks. It is preconfigured with a single LAN (Local Area Network) for faster and easier installation in small to medium-sized systems that require uncompromised reliability.

"After extensive testing, we are very excited that Control4 approved our RB-KIT," said Victor Pak, president and CEO of Pakedge. "With the RB-KIT, systems integrators have an Enterprise-Class router for their custom installations that provides high bandwidth and robust gateway security."

"Successful home control requires all of the components in a home automation system to work together seamlessly," noted Paul Williams, Vice President of Support Services at Control4. "The Pakedge RB-KIT delivers absolutely reliable networking performance and compatibility when used in a Control4 system."

The Pakedge RB-KIT is ultra-reliable and offers extensive multi-threat security protection. It provides an ideal backbone for a Control4 automation system, and is preconfigured out of the box for simple installation. The RB-KIT has dual WAN links that ensure more reliable Internet connectivity: if one connection becomes inoperative, the RB-KIT will automatically switch over to the other connection.
