URC today announced the launch of the MXHP-R700 handheld remote for MX HomePro. URC also expanded MX HomePro system control to eight zones and introduced a new Sonos certified two-way module.

This new programmable Wi-Fi handheld remote boasts a 2″ LCD with custom onscreen menus. The R700’s ergonomic design, backlit keypad, intuitive layout and finger grooves make it ideal for entertainment and smart home control.

The R700 features a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, charging cradle and onscreen battery indicator. It retains its battery charge for three to four days of normal use after a full charge.

The new Sonos two-way module allows for simple and reliable control as part of a fully-integrated MX HomePro system. Features include volume control, grouping of Sonos players, access to Sonos favorites and advanced automation. The module carries the coveted “Works with Sonos” badge, attesting to the quality of the certified integration. The cloud-based MX HomePro system delivers whole-house entertainment and smart home control, including robust integration with thousands of available Z-Wave devices. Sold exclusively through the custom installation channel, MX HomePro systems are professionally designed, installed and serviced. MX HomePro integrates with Amazon Alexa, Bose, Heos, Honeywell, Lutron, Nest, Philips Hue, Roku, Sonos and more.
