RTI launches next generation RK1+ in-wall keypad6 August 2014
Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is now shipping its next-generation RK1+ in-wall keypad, available in 2-, 4-, and 8-button models. Each unit now includes multiple faceplate and button colours, in addition to a custom-engraved button set option for a completely customisable, intuitive control experience at an affordable price.
Designed to match the décor of any room, the RK1+ offers white, black, and light almond faceplate and keycap kits, while the button backlight can be configured to 16 different colours on each button. For a high-end look and even more intuitive control experience, the unit also ships with a certificate for one set of custom-engraved button keycaps using RTI’s Laser Shark service. This means customised button keycaps can be created featuring graphics and text for a control experience specific to each individual installation.
Simple to install, the RK1+ fits in a single-gang electrical box and is compatible with any standard Decora-type wall plate. Offering direct control of electronics via an integrated IR output, the device can also be used with RTI control processors and accessories for even more powerful capabilities, including two-way control, as it provides visual feedback via the configurable backlight colour. Programming the unit is quick and easy with RTI’s Integration Designer software.
“With multiple colours and custom engraving options included with every unit, the RK1+ allows dealers to offer their clients intuitive, basic control that is affordable enough to include in every room,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “Of course, if more advanced control features are required — whether it’s RS-232, IP, relay, or sensing — the keypad’s capabilities can easily be expanded when incorporated into an RTI control system.”
