AMBER INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES BRAND NEW URC REMOTES

The MX-1200i, MX-780i and the water-resistant MXW-920i are all slim one-way wand style remotes which offer both IR and 433MHz Narrow Band RF operation and are fully PC programmable via URC's unique Complete Control Program (CCP) software.

Amber International, the leading European distributor, has introduced three new models from the URC Complete Control range, to provide limitless capabilities that represent a new benchmark in remote control technology, and thanks to a fresh design, offers end users with a stylish looking system.


The MX-1200i, MX-780i and the water-resistant MXW-920i are all slim one-way wand style remotes which offer both IR and 433MHz Narrow Band RF operation and are fully PC programmable via URC's unique Complete Control Program (CCP) software.

"The new additions to the Complete Control range meet the demand for devices which combine superb functionality with a sleek and elegant design" says Cees van Wendel de Joode, Amber International Sales Manager. "The MXW-920i has created a buzz in the industry and in a short space of time is already selling very well. We believe this is due to its high water resistance, a feature which we know end users have been asking for."

The MX-1200i boasts a 2.4" colour LCD touch screen that can be fully customised to the individual's requirements. With out of sight IR control, using RF base stations the remote has great versatility. Suitable for whole home automation, the installer can configure the system to play music, turn the TV on and set a lighting scene - all from one touch.

Considered one of the best entry level remotes on the market, the MX-780i is a wand style hard button remote control with a 1.5" colour OLED interface that provides a higher contrast ratio and uses less energy than conventional displays. This remote can control up to 255 devices throughout the home, via direct IR or RF to a base station and as with the MX-1200i, it has the ability to control the system without direct visibility. Using the CCP software, the installer can program the remote to suit the user's requirements.

A company first for URC, the splash proof MXW-920i features a pin-sharp monochrome LCD that displays text. The unit's water resistant rating is JIS Class 4, IP-class 54 - meaning that splashing water on the remote control from any direction will have no effect on its operation. Programmed identically to the highly regarded MX-900i and KP-900 devices, the MXW-920i's one-way RF design is similar to that of the MX-900i but with improved transport functionality. The unit is powered by four AAA alkaline batteries.

The MX-1200i, MX-780i and MXW-920i are all available now from Amber International, visit www.amberinternational.com for more details.
