URC Launches MX-490 Remote For Complete Control

Jul 18, 2022

URC Evolves its Product Line with a New IR Remote for Smart Home Control

URC, a global leader in smart home automation and control for residential and commercial applications, announced the launch of the MX-490, an easy-to-program, handheld remote designed to control IR devices throughout a home.

With other technology companies dealing with supply chain issues, URC continues to innovate around its Complete Control system with the launch of the MX-490. This programmable, handheld remote can directly control every IR device in your home – TV, A/V components, cable, satellite boxes and more. It is ideal for use in home theaters, kitchens or bedrooms.

The MX-490 features a brilliant 2” color LCD screen able to control up to 48 devices. When used with a compatible Complete Control base station, like the MRF-350 and MRF-260, the MX-490 controls integrated A/V components through walls and cabinet doors, or even from outside. There is no need to point the remote control at the components or even be in the same room.

Advanced benefits of this new touch screen include:

  • Ergonomically designed handheld remote with brilliant 2” color LCD screen
  • Displays up to six buttons per screen
  • Delivers one-way control of IR devices
  • Operates on standard AA alkaline batteries
  • Hand programmed eliminating the need for software

“URC continues to innovate around our legendary Complete Control line to offer dealers and end-users a variety of control choices,” said Lars Granoe, URC’s VP Product Development. “Our goal is to deliver residential and commercial products that elevate expectations for premium performance, design and integration.”

URC Total Control® is the flagship automation and control system in the URC portfolio. Complete Control delivers reliable, entry level entertainment control via handheld remote or mobile app. Complete Control products are sold through certified URC dealers and authorized distributors.

URC will be showcasing this new remote, as well as its complete product line at CEDIA 2022 (https://cediaexpo.com/) in late September. The custom electronics premier trade show brings together manufacturers, installers and media leaders for an annual view into the industry’s future.
