RC Announces Vivido Two-way Lighting Solutions Now Shipping

The new lineup includes everything needed for flawless integrated lighting including master and accessory light dimmers, switches, a lamp dimming module, an appliance switching module and more.

Harrison, N.Y. - March 17, 2015 - URC, the company with more than 25 years of industry leadership, today announced that the Vivido series of two-way designer lighting solutions for Total Control and ccGEN2 whole-house home automation systems is now shipping. The new lineup includes everything needed for flawless integrated lighting including master and accessory light dimmers, switches, a lamp dimming module, an appliance switching module and more. Vivido controls and dims virtually all loads of dimmable bulbs including LED, Compact Fluorescent, MLV and others.


All Vivido series lighting products are fully controllable from familiar URC Total Control interfaces, an extensive assortment that includes wand-style, simple and full-featured keypads and gyro-type controllers. Additionally, all can be controlled while on-premises-or while away-using the recently announced URC Mobile app on an Android or iOS device. And with the battery powered, stick-on-the-wall-anywhere dimmer, this line is ideal for retrofits. Because it is a Z-Wave product, it can also be used as a standalone, elegant lighting solution in addition to being married to a comprehensive, whole-house automation system.

"URC's Vivido lighting solutions represent an exciting new opportunity for all of our dealers. It's especially easy to install," said Cat Toomey, director of marketing at URC. "No special wiring or repeaters required! Just use our compatible Z-Wave gateway and the Vivido products of your choice. They are available in three color options with a designer aesthetic that blends in perfectly with any home's existing dcor. With exclusive design, ease of install and all the control you need, Vivido from URC is the smart lighting choice for every home."

Total Control by URC offers home and business owners unprecedented ease and efficiency. Technologically, it features the latest in innovation and simplicity. Fully scalable, users can begin with a modest system and continue to add features as their needs expand. Home theater, A/V components, lighting, HVAC (thermostat), window shades and security cameras are just a few of the items that can be integrated into a Total Control system from URC.
