A significant addition to URC's Total Control line of whole-house control products, the MRX-20 enables consumers to control their entire home with ease at a variety of price points that make control a reality for more people than ever before. The MRC-20 delivers a fun onscreen graphical user interface that allows you to summon an onscreen TV overlay and control features - without interrupting what you are watching. You simply move the "cursor" on the TV screen through motion or by pressing directional buttons on the remote as preferred for fabulous control of entertainment, lighting, security, climate and more. Available through authorized, trained custom installers, the MRX-20 stores and issues commands for IP, IR, RS-232, relay and sensor controlled devices. The system also allows one button to be programmed with multiple functions known as "macros." For example, one button may turn off the lights and start the movie. With 10 IR ports, four RS-232 ports, four relay ports, four sensor ports, two 12-volt outputs, three HDMI inputs, and one HDMI output, this network controller offers all the connectivity a homeowner could need. Multiple MRX-20s can be linked together to expand the system to meet your needs.

URC's unique, intuitive "gesture style" doesn't rely on conventional up/down and side-to-side buttons clicks. The semi-transparent overlay doesn't fully obscure the TV screen. You can choose music from various sources, turn the house lights on or off, or adjust the temperature, directly from the TV, without switching to a menu screen that replaces the TV picture. This one-of-a-kind solution allows you to press a button and bring up your favorite channel menu through an overlay across the bottom of the screen for instant access to 12 of your favorite channels per overlay screen. Handheld control of the onscreen menus enabled by the MRX-20 is provided by URC's two new, groundbreaking gyroscopic motion control remote controls, the TRG-100 and TRG-200. Both offer URC's new uMotion technology, a motion-based control that enables you to move and point the remote, and control the cursor directly on the big screen, much like an easy-to-use gaming remote. Sleek and ergonomically designed, these remotes fit perfectly in hands of any size. The TRG-100 offers the fewest buttons to create a simple user experience. For those who prefer more hard buttons and direct access on the remote, the TRG-200 advanced remote provides direct numeric keys and more.
The MRX-20 serves as the "brains" of a URC Total Control system. Once you have an MRX-20 in your home, the home automation and control options available to you are virtually limitless. With its highly sophisticated engineering, and the talents of your installer, the MRX-20 provides a rock-solid platform for all the expansion your home will need. The MRX-20's control screen overlay means you don't need to choose between what you're watching on the TV and the ability to control various subsystems in the home. Navigating through the system selection should be a pleasure, not a labor, and that's what the MRX-20 is all about. Just like a cable/satellite channel guide, the MRX-20 allows you to keep watching and listening to your favorite show while adjusting climate, lighting, audio and more - all from the same remote you use to control your home theater. URC's new gyroscopic remotes work only with the MRX-20. Similar to controllers popular in the gaming world, URC's TRG-100 and TRG-200 remotes allow you to point towards and click on specific aspects of a control screen, without having to manually navigate up-and-down through menus via button presses. URC's traditional remote controls also work with the system.
