URC has launched the MX-490, an easy-to-program, handheld remote designed to control IR devices throughout a home.
With other technology companies dealing with supply chain issues, URC continues to innovate around its Complete Control system with the launch of the MX-490. This programmable, handheld remote can directly control every IR device in the home — TV, AV components, cable, and satellite boxes. It is ideal for use in home theaters, kitchens, or bedrooms.
The MX-490 features a 2-inch color LCD screen able to control up to 48 devices. When used with a compatible Complete Control base station, like the MRF-350 and MRF-260, the MX-490 controls integrated AV components through walls and cabinet doors or even from outside. There is no need to point the remote control at the components or even be in the same room.
The remote’s touch screen can display up to six buttons per screen to send one-way control to IR devices. The MX-490 operates on standard AA alkaline batteries and is hand-programmed, eliminating the need for software.
“URC continues to innovate around our legendary Complete Control line to offer dealers and end-users a variety of control choices,” said Lars Granoe, URC’s VP product development. “Our goal is to deliver residential and commercial products that elevate expectations for premium performance, design and integration.”
URC Total Control is the flagship automation and control system in the URC portfolio. Complete Control delivers entry-level entertainment control via handheld remote or mobile app. Complete Control products are sold through certified URC dealers and authorized distributors.
URC will be showcasing this new remote, as well as its complete product line at CEDIA Expo 2022 in late September.
