URC universal remote option - Rancho Santa Fe media room and remote by Total Control


We just finished another whole-house project and the client was so pleased that he thought EVERYBODY should know about the product line. We do too. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, below is a description of one of our main product lines for controlling all of your house systems...Total Control by Universal Remote Control.

 

A home automation system like this allows you to easily control all of your house systems such as:

 Home Theater

Home Entertainment: Control your home theater, whole-house music and all rooms of audio/video from any area in the house. Never juggle ten remotes again to make things work. Total Control allows you to use ONE remote to control everything in the house!

Lighting Control: Want to push one button at night to turn off all the lights in the house? No problem. How about coming home from work to a completely lighted home? Yup. Want your lights to turn on during the evening hours and to turn off in the morning? With Total Control, all of these lighting situations are easily solved with the touch of a finger.

Security: Total Control allows you to monitor your home from anywhere in the world on your computer, tablet or phone. Feel comfortable knowing that your house is monitored securely and easily.

If you haven't noticed, we REALLY enjoy this stuff and want to spread the word. Here's a spot by John about one of our toys.

 

"Easy? Who said this stuff was easy?

That might be what you were thinking after you unpacked your new TV, AV receiver, BluRay player, HD satellite box, CD changer, AppleTV, Xbox360, iPod dock, a plethora of cables to connect everything and a half dozen or more remotes to run the show. It doesn’t look very easy so far…

That’s why we are in business… To make your entertainment system enjoyable and EASY to use!

With today’s entertainment systems utilizing four or six or more components, the easy part has slowly faded into the sunset unless you have made the decision to invest in a true control system. When I say “true control system” I mean one that will run ALL of the devices you want and operate them easily. Watching TV shouldn't be difficult...this option makes it simple.

When most people tell me what they want out of their new system, the phrase “easy to use” is always a top 3 item. What the client is really saying to me is “PLEASE DON’T MAKE ME USE 16 REMOTES!!!” We have solutions!

The most popular control system in the Aire Theater Designs arsenal is a one-two punch from the folks at Universal Remote Control or URC. But before I go into the virtues of our most popular control solution I want to tell you who URC is and why we love them.

URC has been making remote controls for more than 20 years. More than likely, you all ready have a URC remote in your home and don’t even realize it! URC makes original equipment remotes for several consumer electronics manufacturers out there, including Denon, Parasound, Mitsubishi, McIntosh, Krell, Sharp and many others. Even the remote that came with your cable box was made by URC!

Now that you know a little bit about the control professionals we like to use, I will get back to the one-two punch I mentioned earlier. The MX-980 and MRF-350 are the pieces that make up our most popular control system. The handheld unit is wand shaped and features a generously sized color LCD display with dedicated hard buttons for volume, channels, numbers, etc, a rechargeable battery and charging stand. The MRF-350 is our little secret that allows your A/V equipment to be controlled in a closed cabinet or from another room all together. That’s right; you no longer have to point the remote at anything! Throw in a little custom programming from our top-notch install team and you can hide the 16 remotes that came with everything and you will have an EASY to use A/V system!

I’m sure you’re all wondering “how much does this thing cost?” In the course of a year or so you will spend more on aspirin than this control system if you don’t get one! (that might be an exaggeration)

So the next time you want to simply watch TV with your awesome entertainment system, just press the button that says “Watch TV” and let the remote do all the dirty work!

Did I mention this can control your lights too? Call us up to find out more!"

"Hi friends...We just got a new toy for Christmas from our partners at URC (Universal Remote Control). It's called the MX-780i and I'm going to explain why it might become your best buddy.
 
We get a lot of calls from people wondering why their remote controls don't control all of their components or prompt them to push a HELP button. If you have what we call a "PC-Programmable" remote and a smart programmer, this will never be an issue for you. Unfortunately, "PC-Programmable" remotes typically start at about $500.00 before programming and other add-ons so the cost for controlling a system might be higher than some would like. This is where there MX-780i might catch your eye.
 
At a price of $299.00, the MX-780i is the most affordable remote that we carry with PC-programming. What is PC-programming you ask? In a nutshell, PC-programming allows for:
 
1) Reliable programming: If you want your system to go on and off EVERY TIME, a PC-programmable remote is the only reliable solution. The remotes that you buy at big-box retailers or that rhyme with "Smarmony" CAN'T provide this.
 
2) Future back-up and upgradeability: Dog eat your remote? Did you drop your remote on your concrete floor and the remote lost? Remote swimming in the jacuzzi unsuccessfully? No problem. A PC-programmable remote allows us to take your previously programmed file and zap it over to a new remote instantly without you having to pay for hours of additional programming fees.
 
3) The "Help I'm having a party and can't get sound outside" syndrome: PC-programming allows us to view a virtual copy of your remote even when off-site. This allows us to guide you through the operation of your system effectively so you can keep your guests entertained with music or movies. Great for Friday night get-togethers or Super Bowls!
 
Tired of the pile of remotes on your table? Give us a ring and let us show you how the MX-780i can enhance your life."
