RTI Now Shipping RP-4 RF Control Processor for Single-Room Installations
Cost-Effective Processor Combines Rock-Solid Reliability With Support for RTI’s Award-Winning RTiPanel App
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — March 27, 2014
— Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has announced that the company is now shipping its new RP-4 RF control processor. The next generation of RTI’s RP-1 processor, the RP-4 is designed to provide reliable one-way operation of audio/video and other electronic systems using the company’s family of wireless RF interfaces and now the RTiPanel App. A small, cost-effective package with expanded control options, the RP-4 is the perfect control system for single room installations such as home theaters, media centers, and bedrooms.
The RP-4 boasts an integrated 433-MHz RF receiver, four assignable IR ports with adjustable output, two voltage sense inputs, and two programmable relay outputs; all in one compact package. Perfect for use with any RTI 433-MHz wireless interface, the processor also supports one-way control via the RTiPanel app, allowing users to incorporate their smartphones and tablets easily into their control system.
With the RP-4, A/V components and other equipment can be hidden away in a closet for a clean, professional look. The processor stores all system commands and macros for rock-solid reliability, providing a powerful alternative to IR repeater systems which can suffer from inconsistent performance. Using RTI’s award-winning Integration Designer® software, programming the RP-4 is simple and fast via USB or Ethernet.
“Some single-room installations may not require the functionality of our more advanced XP processors. With the added features and reliability of the new RP-4, dealers can offer a simple yet powerful control solution at a lower price point,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “Furthermore, with support for our RTiPanel application, installers can provide this amazing value while also meeting the high demand for integration of tablet and smartphone devices.”
Two DACs, a delay module and extender kit highlight new offerings.
