2014 Product of the Year Entrant
The TRC-1080 is the newest wand-style, programmable, color LCD remote addition to URC’s Total Control® family of interfaces. One of its most exceptional features is Quick Connect. The TRC-1080 quickly connects to the existing network via any LAN, and automatically connects to the custom-programmed Total Control system. This results in typical connect times being virtually imperceptible. From an industrial design and ease-of-use standpoint, the TRC-1080 is a definite stand out. This remote has a very low profile, thin design with not one, but three perfectly-placed finger grooves on the back to balance the remote depending upon where the hand is and which buttons are selected. It also features a vivid, large (2”), full-color, high-resolution LCD screen and sits in a stylish piano black tabletop charging cradle that looks elegant in any environment. Equipped with just the right number of buttons, including the four color-coded cable box buttons, users can enjoy fast access to every function and explore any interactive service their TV/cable provider delivers. It also employs the latest in battery technology, extending battery life and making it the perfect eco-friendly addition to a Total Control system. It is arguably the most handsome remote control ever made. Its beauty belies its function, and the perfectly placed finger grooves on the back for balance make it feel like an extension of the user’s hand. The TRC-1080 packs all the power and two-way remote feedback for one-room entertainment control up to whole-house, integrated control of A/V, lighting, security, and more, helping users realize the full potential of a Total Control system.
The TRC-1080 is truly a standout in esthetics, functionality, convenience and comfort. Its button placement and layout are further complemented by the sophisticated, piano black finish and charging cradle, giving it high-end appeal in any environment. Exceptional features like Quick Connect, pick up sensor technology and the latest in battery technology offer users the benefits of a high performance remote that complement the Total Control system in a way that customers can have lasting enjoyment with quick and easy setup and install. It also boasts extensive customization of graphical icons and supports 200+ pages and live video from URC cameras! The TRC-1080 uses URC’s tried and true Accelerator programming software, which makes delivering the client’s remote fast and efficient because it builds the macros automatically. The system can also be programmed offsite eliminating the need for installers to roll a truck.
The TRC-1080 makes the perfect eco-friendly addition to a Total Control system. It fully leverages the power of the latest in battery technology resulting in customers enjoying extended battery life. The TRC-1080’s elegant design also lends to its appeal among customers who value a remote that is a sophisticated extension of existing décor. Setup, install and daily use of home theater remotes traditionally means wait times for the remote to join the network. With the TRC-1080, all of that waiting is a thing of the past. The customer’s installer quickly connects to the home network via any LAN, and it automatically connects to his custom-programmed Total Control system. No long wait times and no costly system upgrades required thanks to offsite programming. And it offers fast access to every cable function and interactive service provided by the customer’s TV/cable provider thanks to the four color-coded cable box buttons.
