Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is now shipping its new KX7 in-wall color touch panel controller and SURFiR companion remote. The KX7 offers features such as a capacitive touch screen, analog and digital video viewing capability and a self contained control system. The SURFiR is a low-cost companion remote control, for end-users that enjoy using their tablet or smartphone as their primary controller but want hard-buttons with instant control.
The KX7 has an infrared output that allows control of devices up to 1,000 feet away while an RS232 port allows direct control of electronics without a control processor. When combined with RTI accessories, the KX7 offers intuitive two-way communication for control and feedback from compatible electronic devices such as music servers, HVAC, lighting and more.
The KX7 features a 7-inch WVGA (800×480) multi-touch capacitive touch screen. In addition, composite, S-video and component video inputs provide video at up to 576p resolution. The KX7 is outfitted with both wired and wireless Ethernet, providing access to advanced capabilities, including two-way control of devices (via RTI XP series control processors), viewing motion JPEG digital video, Web browsing and system file updating. The KX7’s 10/100 Base-T connection supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce cabling requirements and simplify installations.
The SURFiR allows users to incorporate their Apple and Android touch screen devices as the graphical interface for their control system, while adding the convenience of “instant on,” tactile control with hard buttons and eliminating the numerous screen swipes needed for control tasks that require frequent interaction. The also controller requires minimal programming for integrators.
