Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) took home four awards at ceremonies co-located with this year’s CEDIA EXPO 2013.
The KX2 in-wall controller and T2x handheld controller were both honoured with Residential Systems’ Resi Awards in the categories of Controller (Touchpanel) and Controller (Wand-Style Remote Control), respectively. In addition, the pair of controllers were recipients of Technology Integrator EXC!TE Awards.
The 10th-annual Resi Awards honoured the most innovative residential electronics products based on their industrial design, while the EXC!TE Awards paid tribute to products that stand out for being innovative, high-performing solutions oriented to the custom installation professional.
“CEDIA marked the debut of a number of new RTI solutions, and the KX2 and T2x certainly made quite the impression. We couldn’t be more excited that they also made an impact with the judges of these two prestigious awards,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “The controllers combine absolutely stunning designs with cutting-edge features for a control experience unlike any other. Whether it’s the KX2’s ambient light and proximity sensors or the T2x’s three built-in wireless modes, the units take full advantage of the latest technologies to bring control to the next level.”
The elegant KX2 features a 2.8in QVGA LCD display with a completely customisable interface and engravable hard buttons, while multiple bezel options allow it to blend into any décor seamlessly. Other features include direct IR control, integrated 10/100Base-T Ethernet port with Power over Ethernet (PoE), and two-way control when incorporated into an RTI control system.
Feature that made the T2x stand out include a completely customizable 2.8-in colour TFT LCD touchscreen interface. The flush-mount, edge-to-edge touchscreen is designed to provide users with improved gesture support, while integrated grip sensors keep the T2x awake during use and an accelerometer provides the convenience of instant-on control.
