With the first day of 2014 now safely under our belts, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported Remote Central during 2013.

From all the folks who participate in our forums and make this such a lively place to visit each and every day, to everyone who has submitted new content in the file areas – thanks for helping us grow! To our forum moderators, who gently keep the peace when needed – thanks for giving up your time to keep this a friendly place!

And thanks especially to our advertisers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to keep the lights on. Remember, folks: when you choose a company that you’ve seen advertising on Remote Central, you’re doing your part to suppose us too! Be sure to tell them where you saw their ad... and for everyone else, ask why you don’t see one!

Here’s to a successful 2014 for everyone!

Speaker Marketing 101... or is it 420?
As I was finishing up our exhaustive (and exhausting) series of fourteen CEDIA 2013 video reports, I happened upon some interesting footage from a prior Expo, and thought it would be an interesting way to start 2014. Especially if you’re still a little buzzed from partying! Read more...

As everyone prepares today for the start of the winter holiday season, I’m pleased to present the final two control company reports in our CEDIA 2013 video series... namely, iRule, and AMX!

First up the CEO of iRule, Itai Ben-Gal, provides viewers with a concise introduction to iRule’s IOS and Android-based control platform along with examples of a few of the system’s advanced capabilities. Then, set aside a few minutes for Joe Andrulis as he presents what’s new for AMX... including the Enova DGX digital media switchers, the Alero audio amplifier, the Modero X series of desktop & flush mount in-wall touchpanels, plus the new economical Modero S series.

With my house buried under a thick blanket of snow and the warmth of summer but a distant memory, my thoughts turn to the joys of home automation... and our ongoing series of CEDIA 2013 videos! Today I’m very pleased to present three new reports covering DemoPad, Crestron, and Savant Systems!

First, Mike Cain presents viewers with a run-through of the DemoPad iOS-based home control software, and then introduces their first hardware product: the brand new CENTRO 8 Control Processor. Next, come with Jeff Singer as he shows off Crestron’s new wireless home automation capabilities, a home control app made for Samsung Smart TVs, plus the TSW series of in-wall touchscreen controls ranging in size from 5" through 10". Finally, go on a detailed booth tour with Savant co-founder Jim Carroll as he discusses their economical “Big Boy Automation” platform, the SUR-0500 handheld remote, SmartLighting Wi-Fi, advanced climate control, power management and monitoring, plus the SmartLink HDMI to HDBaseT matrix switch.

I hope everyone had (or is still having) a great Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend! Since we didn’t have a CEDIA 2013 video update last week, today we’re bringing you reports for three major control companies: Control4, RTI and URC!

To begin, Paul Williams from Control4 presents what’s new on the company’s 10th anniversary, including advanced lighting solutions, Nest thermostat integration, and the Wireless Music Bridge. Then, spend a few minutes with RTI’s Pete Baker as he shows off the economical SURFiR Remote and RTiPanel solution, the brand new T2i, T2x and T3x Handheld Controllers, along with the KX3 in-wall touchscreen. Finally, finish up with Cat Toomey on a quick tour of URC’s booth, where you’ll learn about the Complete Control Android App, Sonos & Z-Wave integration, new Z-Wave & sensor solutions, along with the Total Control TRC-1080 Wi-Fi Remote Control.

s home theaters become more and more popular, sooner or later everyone begins to experience the same basic problem: too many remote controls sitting on the coffee table.
