“The best handheld remote control ever” on show at AWE’s Smart Home Expo

The AWE Smart Home Expo, which takes place on 15-16 October at its Epsom Smart Apartment HQ, is the place to catch control innovations from URC and Silent Gliss for the very first time.

This will include the TRC-1480 Handheld Remote, dubbed “the best handheld remote ever” by US media insiders, RAVE, a range of URC control modules and automated blind options from Silent Gliss.

The TRC-1480 (left) includes push-to-talk voice control, a 2.4-inch touchscreen LCD and provides two-way metadata, hard buttons and an ergonomic design. Fully compatible with URC’s Total Control 2.0 system, the device is remarkable for its effortless balance in the end users’ hand thanks to ergonomically placed finger grooves and an evenly distributed weight of just 226g.

Visitors to the Smart Home Expo can also get to grips with the new series of six URC Total Control Modules from AWE (pictured above) to help make installation quicker, easier and more reliable. These new modules cover allow integrators to control all 2019 Panasonic TVs and the company’s premium end DP-UB9000 Blu-Ray player over IP using URC; the Loxone smart home system; Heatmiser heating control; and Lilin IP cameras to improve security system integration and performance. Finally, AWE has released a new Background Macros module which will be a significant time-saver for all integrators working with URC.

All of these two-way control modules, designed, developed and tested by AWE, URC’s exclusive distributor in the UK are available completely free of charge from AWE’s website to integrators who have purchased URC systems through the company.

AWE will also be showing Smart by Silent Gliss, which transforms motorised curtain and blinds into intelligent devices, with benefits such as bottom bar alignment, up synchronisation and complex scene settings. Smart by Silent Gliss brings the flexibility to schedule curtains to open and close at particular times; the convenience of operating the blinds from a range of devices; the capability to create room ambience with pre-programmed scenes; the opportunity to improve energy efficiency with blinds operating automatically to avoid overheating or heat loss; and security benefits with blinds and curtains moving automatically even when your client is not at home.

Visitors will see how systems are specifically designed to integrate seamlessly with typical control platforms, including URC, and are available with curtain tracks, roller, roman and dimout blinds, as well as sliding panels and Metropole.

This year’s AWE Smart Home Expo will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday 15-16 October. The event is targeted at integrators, retailers, media and other industry professionals to experience the many exceptional industry firsts and latest insights on AWE’s range of premium brands.
