URC Announces “Screw-in Simple” LED Wireless Lighting

phpvM0lFaAMDenver, CO. – CEDIA Expo 2014 – September 11, 2014 – URC, the leader in whole-house home automation, today announced URC LED Lighting, a ZigBee® based wireless lighting control system that’s so easy to install that no high voltage experience is required. These new, affordable products are installed as part of a Total Control or ccGEN2 whole-house home automation project.

The initial URC LED Lighting products include an A19 standard lamp bulb, a BR30 “high hat” lamp bulb and the TRF-GT1, a ZigBee controller that can sit anywhere on a network. The new URC LED Lighting lineup is being announced simultaneously with URC’s also new Vivido TM two-way designer RF lighting solutions.

“No home automation project is complete without lighting control,” said Cat Toomey, director of marketing at URC. “With two completely new lines of lighting from URC, dealers have more options than ever before to satisfy customers’ needs, moods and interests.”

A few key features of URC LED Lighting include dimming capability when installed as part of a Total Control or ccGEN2 installation, user-adjustable lighting scenes and status feedback of availability on a smartphone, tablet or any URC interface. Bulbs can be “grouped” so that up to 4 lamps can be dimmed Up and Down, and sent On and Off commands as if they are one single bulb. The new URC LED light bulbs save energy and are expected to last longer than 20 years based upon normal usage.

Total Control by URC offers home and business owners unprecedented ease and efficiency. Technologically, it features the latest in innovation and simplicity. Fully scalable, users can begin with a modest system and continue to add features as their needs expand. Home theater, A/V components, lighting, HVAC (thermostat), window shades and security cameras are just a few of the items that can be integrated into a Total Control system from URC.

ccGEN2 is a complete two-way, IP-based product line that parlays URC’s years of experience and leadership in the one-way control and home entertainment arena with its Complete Control™ line, and builds upon the success of the multiple-award-winning Total Control home automation system. To assure unfettered success and maximum end-user experience for every installation, dealers applying to sell ccGEN2 products must pass a thorough certification process and receive approved training. ccGEN2 products, with few exceptions, are not compatible with URC’s one-way, RF/IR Complete Control system or with Total Control products.
