Custom installers can now offer control of both whole house audio/video and home theater systems from a single touch screen interface
MIAMI, FLORIDA — September 26, 2007 — Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation, today announced the introduction of the iRemote TS, an easy to use system control remote with color touch screen. The iRemote TS is an elegant user interface for operating the award-winning IntelliControl ICS whole house distributed audio/video system and automating sophisticated home theater systems. It employs reliable ZigBee 2-way wireless technology to provide users with all the necessary metadata to scan, select and play program material from menu-based digital sources, like iPODs, music servers, HD Radio, XM and Sirius satellite radio, from their whole house audio/video system. It also integrates with Niles HT-MSU home theater main system unit to manage all components in a home theater system including television, home theater receiver and up to 14 additional sources like digital video recorders, DVD players and cable/satellite receivers with the single press of its touch screen interface. With the Niles iRemote TS, custom installation professionals can now offer their clients unified operation of virtually every audio/video component in their home from one elegant and intuitive user interface.
“Now Niles IntelliControl ICS customers can control their distributed audio/video system and their home theater from a single color touch screen remote,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles. “The iRemote TS, HT-MSU and IntelliControl ICS combine to create a completely integrated distributed audio/video and home theater control solution,” Sterns added.
The iRemote TS controls the IntelliControl ICS system and the HT-MSU via reliable ZigBee radio commands. Additionally, it can control non-ZigBee equipped devices via infrared commands which it stores and transmits in sequence to local components such as flat panel televisions, lighting control systems, motorized shades, etc. While the iRemote TS performs complicated control tasks, it is simple to set up and install by professional integrators. Configuration is performed quickly and easily using Niles IntelliFile 3 wizard-based software. During system configuration, the integrator answers a series of logical questions, after which the iRemote, IntelliControl ICS whole house system and the HT-MSU home theater main system unit are automatically configured. The iRemote TS, HT-MSU and IntelliControl ICS system will be available in January 2008.
The MSRP for the iRemote TS is $1,299.95
