M2 Universal Controller

Quick Overview

This product has been discontinued

Designed to be extremely flexible and affordable, the M2 combines the
convenience of eight programmable LCD “soft” buttons with the ideal selection of commonly used keypad buttons. The high contrast display can be customized with any combination of text and graphics desired.
This provides the end-user with a simple and flexible interface for operating today’s sophisticated media systems, no matter how complex.


The M2 is more than just another affordable remote control - it’s an
expandable control system. When used with RTI accessory devices, it
is capable of radio frequency transmission, power sensing for reliable
operation, and RS-232 communications for advanced control. Sleek and
perfectly balanced, the M2 is also infinitely flexible and expandable.

The M2 takes complete control of the home theater, replacing all other
remotes. It features a bright, high-contrast LCD that can display custom
buttons and text. In addition to the backlit display, there are 33 hard buttons
that allow easy access to frequently used functions. Programming is easy and
convenient thanks to the Windows® based Integration Designer software*.

NOTE: For RF control, a 433MHz antenna must be used with this model of remote. It is not compatible with the ZM-24 2.4 GHz Transceiver Module.

*Integration Designer software only available to authorized RTI dealers.
