Controller Offers Upgraded Feature Set for Powerful and Intuitive Control
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Oct. 22, 2013 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has announced that it is now shipping its T1-B+ wireless controller, the second generation of the company's popular T1-B controller. The all-hard-button remote offers intuitive, customizable control housed in a contemporary design specifically suited for today's home and office environments.
"The original T1-B wireless controller was designed to provide installers with a powerful, yet affordable, all-hard-button interface to satisfy the diverse demands of any residential or commercial application," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "The new T1-B+ takes that concept and improves upon it with an upgraded feature set, while maintaining the wonderful ergonomics and ease of use."
Completely customizable, the T1-B+ has a sleek and stylish European design and adds the convenience of backlit hard buttons. The 40 assignable keypad buttons can be individually programmed to control devices or execute multistep macros, providing reliable control of even the most complex electronic systems. For more intuitive control, the unit offers twelve keypad buttons which can be outfitted with custom keycaps for common control tasks such as selecting an audio/video source. These button keycaps can also be custom engraved using RTI's Laser Shark® service.
With RTI's award-winning Integration Designer® software, the controller is easily programmed to reliably integrate virtually any electronic component via RTI's family of control products. In addition, the controller now features RTI's revolutionary dual-RF platform, which supports both 433-MHz RF and 2.4-GHz ZigBee® for reliable RF communication with RTI processors. With RTI's processors, the T1-B+'s capabilities can be expanded to include RS-232 control, contact closures, power sensing, and much more. The unit also offers standalone IR control with a broad IR transmitting frequency range of 15 kHz to 460 kHz.
For long hours of use and ease of charging, the T1-B+ is equipped with an integrated tilt switch, coupled with a lithium-ion battery and charging dock. Non-volatile flash memory will also store system configurations even when power is not present.
