amberinternationalAs technology and interior design continues to go hand in hand, Master EMEA distributor, Amber International is providing residential custom installers with the URC TKP-7000, an attractive and intuitive in-wall touchscreen that doesn’t compromise the look of a room.

Featuring a 7” 1024 x 600 capacitive-touch colour screen, the new URC TKP-7000 is an intuitive control device that adds complete management of all entertainment, lighting, heating, security and more. The TKP-7000 offers gesture-based control of music lists, source selection or volume. With full graphic feedback from both URC and compatible third-party devices, the TKP-7000 can also display live video for security monitoring when combined with URC cameras.

“The TKP-7000 adds a touch of elegance to the range with a slick design that allows it to blend seamlessly into any interior design” explains Cees van Wendel de Joode, Sales Manager for Amber International.  “Not only is it a great looking product for the end user, but it also suits the installer it as it is incredibly easy to install, requiring just a single Cat5 cable for power and communication. We have already received positive feedback from our customers and expect to see a good uptake of the system featuring.”

Like the rest of the Total Control range, the TKP-7000 can be programmed off the premises via the internet.  This provides the end user with fantastic customer service, allowing the installer to update remotely and if needs be, troubleshoot off-site for minimal disruption.

Features of the TKP-7000 include:

–          A fully capacitive touchscreen, users simply “swipe” or “flick” to navigate menus. By incorporating gesture control, every screen can be explored by simple finger swipes

–          Pop-up shortcuts allow the user to save up to six common devices and activities for easy “one-touch” selection

–          A customisable status bar, allowing users to see all pertinent info (weather, time, door info, climate, etc.) at a glance

–          A rooms menu which can temporarily link different rooms or areas of a Total Control system for music listening, alongside a snapshot of “what’s going on” in every room/zone.  Additionally, by tapping on a room – the TKP-7000 converts into a controller for that area

–          A time and weather module accessible via a single button-press, this full-screen display keeps users up to date with the time, date and weather conditions

Cees adds “With the TKP-7000 offered at such a competitive price, this really does change the game in premium user interfaces, and it fits well in both residential and commercial applications.”
