Groundbreaking Remotes Feature Revolutionary Dual RF Board Technology, Combine 433-MHz RF and 2.4-GHz ZigBee(R) Technology in One Device
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Dec. 2, 2010 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company is now shipping its T2-C+ and T3-V+ universal system controllers. Representing breakthroughs in remote technology, the new handhelds each combine 433-MHz RF for one-way control and 2.4-GHz ZigBee(R) for bidirectional communication in one remote. Providing the ultimate control experience for users, the powerful next-generation T2-C+ and T3-V+ offer an array of best-in-class features from an OLED touch-screen and outstanding industrial design to custom button-engraving options and wireless Ethernet.
The T3-V+ and T2-C+ feature a revolutionary dual RF board technology that supports both 433-MHz RF for one-way control and 2.4-GHz ZigBee for bidirectional communication with RTI-compatible processors and supported third-party electronics such as music servers, lighting, and even Web-based RSS feeds for convenient weather updates. Providing dealers with a choice among technologies, RTI allows them to specify the T3-V+ and T2-C+ into any installation without worrying about the communication method or level of system sophistication required.
Sleek and elegant, the T2-C+ is the fourth generation of RTI’s renowned T2 remote control platform. Now featuring the first OLED touch-screen ever used with a remote control, the unit provides a stunning, state-of-the-art, high-contrast display with an extremely wide viewing angle. The T2-C+ universal system controller represents a perfect example of style and function, blended seamlessly together. Featuring 35 hard buttons to provide tactile control of commonly used functions and a very modern and impressive industrial design, the T2-C+ is thinner, lighter, and far superior ergonomically for one-handed operation than is any other remote control in its class.
Representing the pinnacle of elegance, the T3-V+ is an extremely powerful controller wrapped in an attractive, contemporary design. The third generation of the award-winning T3 system controller, the T3-V+ is enhanced with an updated hard button configuration including five soft keys that allow for custom button-engraving options from RTI. The unit offers a 3.5-inch full-VGA touch-screen for eye-popping color while integrated 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet and a built-in Web browser allow the user to access Web pages and IP-addressable devices such as security cameras.
“We are very excited to be shipping our next-generation T2-C+ and T3-V+ handheld controllers, which introduce a number of features that you won’t find on any other remote,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “The revolutionary dual RF board technology provides unprecedented convenience for dealers, and consumers will marvel at the stunning OLED touch-screen of the T2-C+. Add in the updated hard button configuration and engraving options of the T3-V+, and you’ve got two remotes that significantly raise the bar for the industry.”
The T2-C+ and T3-V+ are programmed through RTI’s Integration Designer(TM) software, so dealers can easily provide a completely customizable user interface for intuitive command over the entire electronics system. The remotes can be used as stand-alone controllers or, when used with other RTI devices, can be integral parts of an advanced control system, offering sophisticated features such as RS-232, IP or relay control, power sensing, and RF transmission through walls or cabinets.
