Long awaited feature offers programmers more options for dealing with toggle-only devices.

It's a feature that’s been promised almost since the MX-900 was first released, and it's finally here! Universal Remote Control Inc. has just released an update to their editor software and firmware for the Complete Control MX-900, KP-900 and TX-1000 universal remote controls, adding support for up to 8 internal user-configurable variables
. Variables are essential for tracking the status of toggle-only devices, and can be useful for running different macros for different users, eliminating long power-on delays for some devices and so forth.
If you have a version of the software with a Live Update option, simply run it to obtain this new update. After the update, the Macro docker will have a new “Variable” button on the top toolbar, while the macro-type dropdown box at the bottom adds a new “Variable” selection to the preexisting “Normal” and “Press-Hold” options.
If you'd like further information on exactly how to use variables with MX-900 Editor, I’ve added a brief update to the end of our MX-900 review.
Finally, if you have any questions on the MX-900, KP-900 or MSC-400, be sure to visit our Complete Control forum.
Features push-to-talk voice control of Amazon Alexa and Apple TV via Siri.
The MXHP-R700 adds a more fully-featured remote control to the MX HomePro platform.
