New RTI Products at CEDIA EXPO 2014:
T3x Remote Control
Featuring a sleek industrial design, RTI’s T3x remote control combines a stunning 3.5-inch color LCD touchscreen with programmable “soft touch” hard buttons for quick access to common control functions and four buttons with interchangeable keycaps. The unit’s edge-to-edge touchscreen provides users with improved screen swiping, while haptic feedback delivers a subtle vibration as a tactile confirmation when pressing touchscreen buttons. Additional features include integrated grip sensors to keep the T3x awake during use, an accelerometer to provide instant-on control and control via movements, and a built-in camera and microphone for intercom functionality directly on the remote control. Designed for simple integration into any installation, the controller features RTI’s dual-RF platform, which supports both 433-MHz RF for one-way control and 2.4-GHz ZigBee(R) for bi-directional communication with RTI processors and supported third-party electronics. For the ultimate control experience, the integrated 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet provides enhanced two-way control including dynamic graphics, viewing IP cameras, and wireless program updates.

Other advanced capabilities include six voltage sense ports with sense-event capabilities, four relays for control via contact closure, an integrated camera and microphone, proximity and ambient light sensors, WiFi(R), and more. The flexible KX3 can be used as an all-in-one, standalone solution for control over electronic systems or integrated as an in-wall touchpanel within a larger RTI control system.
