Touchpanels are one of the sexiest tools for interacting with a home’s electronic systems. From it you can peruse your iTunes library, monitor and adjust the states of the lights, security system, and more, and launch strings of commands to thermostats, electronic door locks, motorized draperies … really anything that derives power from electrical current or a battery. This same screen, if it’s designed appropriately, can also display your favorite TV shows, the news, movies, even views from surveillance cameras. This was the thinking behind the development of RTI’s new KX10 in-wall touchpanel.
Designed to bring simple control and automation to A/V, environmental, and security systems, the KX!- combines the capabilities of a control device and a high-definition video display into one powerful interface.
“The advanced engineering of our new KX10 in-wall touchpanel makes it more than just a command device,” says Mike Everett, vice president of sales and marketing, Americas, RTI. “With its large, high-resolution LCD users also have a convenient place for viewing HD video via the unit’s HDBaseT input and well as analog video sources through the composite input port.
The KX10’s 10.1-inch, 1280×800 WXGA-resolution LCD is programmable to the finest detail and provides ample screen real estate for the ultimate user interface. Developed to be an elegant solution that allows users to efficiently engage with their surroundings, the touchpanel features built-in intercom support, a proximity sensor that brings it to life when a user approaches, and an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the screen brightness based on the room’s lighting conditions.
RTI’s KX10 in-wall touchpanel is available through authorized RTI dealers.
