New Flagship Remote Control Leverages Industry-First Features for the Ultimate User Experience
MINNEAPOLIS — May 11, 2015 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), a leading control and automation systems manufacturer for residential and light commercial settings, today announced that the company is now shipping its next-generation T3x wireless controller. Part of the company's award-winning automation portfolio, the T3x is loaded with advanced features that will take the user experience to new levels through unmatched simplicity and convenience. The powerful, two-way controller introduces innovations such as video intercom capabilities, a haptic feedback touchscreen, and grip sensors while sustaining an incredibly sleek design and a lower price than its predecessor.
RTI's flagship T3x remote control combines a completely customizable 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen interface with programmable "soft touch" hard buttons to provide more flexibility and increase the simplicity of handheld navigation. A flushmount touchscreen improves swiping while the unit's haptic feedback capabilities deliver subtle vibrations to confirm commands when pressing touchscreen buttons. The T3x also features integrated grip sensors to keep the unit awake during use and an accelerometer that provides instant-on response and control via movements. Ideal for gated estates, MDUs, or any facility requiring video entry, the T3x offers a built-in camera and microphone, letting users interact with intercom systems directly from the palm of their hand.
For easy integration and operation of today's electronic systems, the T3x allows direct control via infrared transmission in addition to three built-in wireless modes. Using RTI's dual-RF platform, the T3x supports 433-MHz RF for one-way control while the device's 2.4-GHz ZigBee® capabilities allow bi-directional communication with RTI processors and seamless integration of third-party components such as music servers, lighting, HVAC, and security systems. For the ultimate control experience, the unit's integrated 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet allows enhanced two-way control including dynamic graphics, IP cameras feeds, and wireless program updates to increase installation efficiency.
"The T3x remote control is a combination of ergonomic excellence and market-leading innovations," said Scott Kelley, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "With powerful features that are unavailable on any other handheld controller in its price range, the T3x is our most customizable, intuitive, and beautifully designed device to date. We are extremely proud to introduce this amazing product to our lineup of control and automation solutions."
