URC announced last month the Total Control two-way integration module for Philips Hue Personal Wireless Lighting, which was developed by Extra Vegetables and URC. The module can be downloaded by Authorized URC Total Control dealers from Extra Vegetables’ website.
After replacing conventional bulbs with Hue lamps and connecting the Hue Bridge to the home wireless network, the new integration module allows URC’s Total Control products to communicate with the lighting system. Users can still operate the Hue system using the standard Android or iOS app method. The Philips Hue system consists of user-replaceable LED lamps that screw directly into existing sockets. Users control intensity and color temperature from cool bluish white to warm yellowish white and all of the vibrant colors in between.
Supported features include the ability to control all Hue devices from Total Control interfaces, create and edit Lighting Scenes and Groups, and add Macro commands to recall a specific light level, color or color temperature. The new Philips Hue two-way module is also compatible with ccGEN2 interfaces including keypads, the RM-2 remote and ccGEN2-iOS app.
