Universal Remote Control has slowly but steadily climbing from the realm of remote control manufacturers to total home automation experts. URC made a big splash at CEDIA 2010 with their new Total Control line of home automation products designed to control everything you could possibly automate in your house, from home theater to lights and HVAC.
The Total Control line, with its two new remote controls, can control network systems, surveillance, a streaming network player, keypads, and audio amplifiers in up to 32 zones in your house. URC even boasts totally uncompressed sound in their home theater systems. Perfect synchronization is also kept so that TVs in different rooms are not a second or two behind each other. The systems are also iPad and iPhone controllable. Total Control will only be available via custom installers, but no dates have been announced yet.
