We’ve seen Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) release a slew of controller options over the years. The company’s latest is a little in-wall keypad, known as the RK1+.
Following in the footsteps of RTI’s RK1, the new keypad boasts an easier installation and greater value. It comes in 2-, 4-, and 8-button models, with multiple faceplate and color options. Custom-engraved buttons are also available.
Specifically, the RK1+ offers white, black, and light almond faceplate and keycap kits, with a button backlight that can be configured to 16 different colors on each button.
Once installed, the RK1+ can handle audio/video components, lights, or other electronic systems in the home.
“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.”
The RK1+ can fit into a single-gang electrical box and is compatible with any standard Decora-type wall plate. It connects via an integrated IR output and can also be used with RTI control processors and accessories. Contact RTI for purchase information and pricing.
