Completely Customizable and Easy on the Budget, 2-, 4-, or 8-Button Keypad Offers Intuitive Control
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — July 24, 2014 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has announced that the company is now shipping its next-generation RK1+ in-wall keypad, available in 2-, 4-, and 8-button models. The new RK1+ offers the same rock-solid control as its predecessor, while offering upgraded installation flexibility and even greater value. Each unit now includes multiple faceplate and button colors in addition to a custom-engraved button set option for a completely customizable, intuitive control experience at an affordable price.
Designed to match the décor of any room, the RK1+ offers white, black, and light almond faceplate and keycap kits, while the button backlight can be configured to 16 different colors on each button. For a high-end look and even more intuitive control experience, the unit also ships with a certificate for one set of custom engraved button keycaps using RTI's Laser Shark® service. This allows installers to create customized button keycaps featuring graphics and text for a control experience specific to each individual installation.
Simple to install, the RK1+ fits in a single-gang electrical box and is compatible with any standard Decora® type wall plate. Offering direct control of electronics via an integrated IR output, the device can also be used with RTI control processors and accessories for even more powerful capabilities, including two-way control, as it provides visual feedback via the configurable backlight color. Programming the unit is quick and easy with RTI's award-winning Integration Designer® software.
"With multiple colors and custom engraving options included with every unit, the RK1+ allows dealers to offer their clients intuitive, basic control that is affordable enough to include in every room," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "Of course, if more advanced control features are required — whether it's RS-232, IP, relay, or sensing — the keypad's capabilities can easily be expanded when incorporated into an RTI control system."
