URC Announces Vivido Two-way Lighting Solutions

phpV62ZSaAMDenver, CO. – CEDIA Expo 2014 – September 11, 2014 – URC, the company that’s celebrating their 25th year of industry leadership, today announced Vivido Series of two-way designer lighting solutions for Total Control® and ccGEN2™ whole-house home automation systems. The new lineup includes everything needed for flawless integrated lighting including master and accessory light dimmers, switches, a lamp dimming module, an appliance switching module and more. URC systems will control and dim all loads including LED, Compact Fluorescent, MLV and others.

All Vivido Series lighting products are fully controllable from familiar URC Total Control or ccGEN2 interfaces, an extensive assortment that includes wand-style, simple and full-featured keypads and gyro-type controllers. Additionally, all can be controlled while on-premises-or while away-using the newly announced URC Mobile app and an Android™ or iOS® device. And with the battery powered, stick-on-the-wall-anywhere dimmer this line is ideal for retrofits.

“URC’s Vivido lighting solutions represent an exciting new opportunity for all of our dealers. It’s especially easy to install,” said Cat Toomey, director of marketing at URC. “No special wiring or repeaters required! Just use our compatible Z-Wave gateway and the Vivido products of your choice. They are available in three color options with a designer aesthetic that blends in perfectly with any home’s existing décor. With exclusive design, ease of install and all the control you need, Vivido from URC is the smart lighting choice for every home.”

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.
