I need to consolidate remotes in a board room that contains lots of electronics. We did the electronics ourselves leaving us with lots of remotes and not a single integration point. I have remotes for the following:
- Projector
- Leviton?: Lights, blinds, screen, etc.
- Video Conferencing unit
- TV
- Panasonic Receiver
- Panasonic DVD Player

I'd like to get something with dedicated buttons for the major functions. We rarely use the Receiver or DVD player, so I'm not interested in a real home theater remote since projector and blinds are the #1 functions.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Dane

like tourists in phuket ...hire a pro
simplest solution, often turns out to be the cheapest option in terms of time and ease of use and less user training is needed as a pro will make doing it idiot proof.

Ps this is the intermission a place for goof offs like me but seriously hire a pro.

The last thing you want is to get the call, "We're trying to use the system for a meeting and nothing is working!", so you want something that is flawless. I would use a Crestron system. Even if you are using a ML-600 (Crestron's version of the MX-850) this is the way I'd go.

Thanks for the advice. We're a pretty small company, but have used professionals to setup all of the automated blinds, lights and projector screens. We have a single remote that handles all of that functionality with 4 buttons on a single remote. Now I'd like to get rid of the separate projector remote and tie a few things together. Any specific remote brand that you would reccomend?

Thanks,

Dane

Crestron as diesel suggests, AMX is another.These are products that are easy to use but need to be set up by a pro.

Good luck

Well I had noticed his raking out of some pretty long in the tooth threads. Perhaps I won't bother after all.
