"For example, the U2 Waterproof Controller is a revolutionary new control solution for wet or harsh environments."

U2 Waterproof Controller

With the U2 Waterproof Controller, consumers can take control of the most sophisticated media room or environmental systems from the pool to playroom, backyard or boat. By featuring an easy -to -read, high contrast, customizable, LCD which can display custom graphics or text, users can view the display in bright sunlight. This provides a simple and flexible interface for operating any electronics system. In addition to the backlit display, there are 33 tactile membrane buttons which allow easy access to frequently used functions. When coupled with RTI accessory devices, the U2 is capable of power sensing for reliable operation and RS -232 communications for advance control. Sleek and durable, the U2 expands control for the home owner wherever their lifestyle requires.

T2 -Cs Universal Controller

The T2 -Cs is a new addition to the RTI line of T2 controllers. The T2 -Cs incorporates the sleek new industrial design of the award winning T2 -C, with a smaller form factor and more streamlined programming. The graphics used on the T2 -Cs 2.4" color touchscreen will be configured utilizing a grid similar to the T2+ controller, allowing more efficient programming. The unit can function as a stand alone controller or as part of a larger, advanced control system, giving consumers the ability to expand their control needs at any time. When used with other RTI automation devices, it is capable of transmission via RF, RS -32 communication, relay control and power sensing.

T3 -V Universal Controller

The next generation T3 -V control system is designed to seamlessly integrate into any system both in function and design. The T3 -V features a contemporary, cutting -edge design with a sizzling, 3.5" color VGA touchscreen display, which enables the device to showcase graphics, photos, and web pages with detail that was not previously possible. Hard buttons were also enhanced to provide control of commonly used functions, including a three -way rocker switch for scrolling. Additionally the remote was equipped with a larger battery capacity to extend the battery life and maximize uninterrupted use over long periods. This controller also features wireless Ethernet and a built -in web browser. When used with other RTI accessories it is capable of RF transmission through walls and cabinets, power sensing, and RS -232 communications for advanced control.

ZM -24

The ZM -24 Transceiver Module utilizes Zigbee® wireless communication, the global standard that enables its products to be wirelessly networked all while still creating a solution that is reliable, cost -effective, and low power. The ZM -24 provides bi -directional communication between two -way enabled RTI remote controls and control processors. The unit can be used as a wireless repeater device to create a reliable, self -healing mesh network, or simply be hard -wired directly to a control processor as the coordinator.
