First Look At URC’s New HomeSet Remote Control

IMG_1110URC (Universal Remote Control) launched a brand new product at ISC West this year specifically designed for Security Dealers and Integrators.

HomeSet is a brand new remote control system built from the ground up and features new technology, new hardware and new software. 

Unlike other URC offerings HomeSet is a cloud-based system and is programmed and maintained from the cloud and integrates with other could based systems.

HomeSet will be able to control Z-wave devices, NEST, Lutron Caseta, alarm.com and even audio systems such as Sonos.  Audio integration is the one key component missing from most interactive alarm apps and with HomeSet, audio control is now possible.

The basic systems starts out with the C-100 controller hub and smartphone App.  An optional R100 IP Based Handheld Remote is also available.  The handheld remote has an LCD display and is capable of showing Live Video Camera footage directly on the remote screen.

One disappointing note – The handheld remote is IP only and does not emit IR directly from the remote but only from the base station HUB.

HomeSet is currently in Beta Testing and should be available this summer.
