RTI Now Controls Multimedia Files
RTI Controls’ General Manager, Gregory Revell said, “This is the hottest product we have released since 1992. The new system will allow 2-way communication between the remote and server, allowing users to have full access to media files and surf the Internet. It can also display the weather and even RSS feeds.”
The user interface is both easy to implement and customise by the installer using RTI’s renowned Integration Designer software. The company says that integration is more convenient using bidirectional communication drivers developed by RTI via its Integration Partner Program for its and control of Escient media servers, Panasonic IP cameras, Lutron lighting controls, and Aprilaire HVAC systems to name a few.
The capabilities of RTI’s control systems continue to expand with the addition of two-way enabled devices, including the new ZM-24 Transceiver Module. The RTI ZM-24 is capable of more than just receiving signals â€” it can transmit signals as well at 2.4 GHz to create a self-healing wireless mesh network.
This creates a bidirectional communication link between ZigBee-enabled RTI control processors and handheld remote controls. Feedback, such as song meta-data or volume level from supported devices can now be viewed on the remote control.
Designed for easy network expansion, multiple ZM-24 Transceiver Modules may be widely deployed, providing ultra-reliable and low-cost control of very large areas.
The company has also included a new graphical user interface, giving users visual feedback from supported devices including current song selection, security status, and environmental services, such as HVAC or lighting.
Web-based templates also provide the end user with quick access to current and forecasted weather conditions directly on their controllers. All products are programmed via RTI’s Integration Designer, a simple to use Windows-based software package.
RTI’s two-way enabled devices are now available from the company’s Australian Logistics centre.
