URC Launches Voice Control In Complete Control® With The New MX-1400 Remote

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

HARRISON, NY (March 31, 2023) - URC, a global leader in smart home automation and control for residential and commercial applications, announced the launch of the MX-1400 with Voice Control. This programmable, 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-1400 and MX-1400i. This programmable, handheld remote can directly communicate via IR for devices control, RF for device control via MRF base stations and Wi-Fi for voice integration via Amazon Alexa and Comcast Xfinity. It is ideal for use in home theaters, kitchens, or bedrooms.

The MX-1400 features a brilliant 2.4” color, capacitive touch, LCD screen with Free Format customization allowing graphic placement anywhere on the screen. When used with a compatible Complete Control base station, like the MRF-350 and MRF-260, the MX-1400 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:

  • Power of Voice Control with built-in mic and speaker allow users to communicate seamlessly using voice commands via Amazon Alexa and Comcast Xfinity
  • Quick Connect 2.4GHz for Voice Control
  • Ultra-reliable narrow band one-way control of IR devices of up to 50 feet or RF range up to 100 feet (both depending on environment)
  • Sleek, contemporarily designed handheld remote with brilliant 2.4” color LCD screen
  • Displays up to six buttons per screen with Free Format customization
  • Ease of use for all via lightweight construction and combination touch screen and hard button design
