RTI Releases ESC-2 Ethernet-to-Serial Converter

Unit Expands Capabilities of XP Series Control Processors by Adding Two Bidirectional Serial Ports Over Ethernet

SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- May 1, 2012 -- Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company is now shipping its ESC-2 Ethernet-to-serial converter. The powerful ESC-2 allows installers to expand the capabilities of any RTI XP series control processor conveniently by adding two additional bidirectional serial ports over Ethernet.


The ESC-2 works seamlessly within RTI's award-winning Integration Designer(R) programming software for quick and simple setup, and multiple modules can be utilized for virtually unlimited control of serial devices. Two RJ-45 jacks allow standard Cat 5 cabling to be used between the converter and the device being controlled. The ESC-2 is then connected to the local Ethernet network with a standard Cat 5 cable for full two-way control, as if the device were wired directly to the control processor.

"With the ESC-2, we're giving installers the ability to cost-effectively utilize Ethernet networks to implement sophisticated control over the many devices spread throughout an installation," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "The converter can also be discovered and configured by our Integration Designer software over Ethernet, making setup simple and efficient."

The ESC-2 is available now at an MSRP of $149.00.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
