2015 Product Hall of Fame Winners


MX-850 IR/RF Text-based Remote Control
Product Introduced in 2005

URC's MX-850 IR/RF text-based remote control remains one of our most popular remotes among custom installers and customers alike. A common question we hear at CEDIA EXPO every year is, "You don't intend to ever discontinue the MX-850 do you?" When introduced to the market a decade ago, the MX-850 was an innovative remote in the control arena that helped create the now widely known category of "barrier free" control. This ergonomically designed remote controls up to 20 components, each of which can be programmed with up to 4 pages of LCD screens. Installers can easily edit the text on each LCD screen exactly as preferred (up to 26 screens with 10 buttons per screen, for a total of 260 available text buttons and up to 5 characters per button). The powerful memory of the MX-850 also offers extensive macro programming with up to 912 potential macro buttons. Each of these macros can play back recorded sequences of commands that completely automate a complex system with one touch. A macro can record and play back up to an incredible 190 steps with time delays between steps when desired. For example: a single touch to the ON button could turn on the TV, the surround sound system, and the satellite receiver, then set the TV to the correct video input, the surround system to the right audio settings, and finish by selecting a favorite satellite TV channel. The MX-850 allows installers to program up to 50 favorite channels allowing users to access their favorite channel quickly and easily with one button press. Because of its eight control buttons, installers can also customize sensible labels for each client's lifestyle. Users experience control wherever and whenever they wish with the MX-850 and a URC base station without having to point the remote at the component being controlled. Using rock-solid Narrow Band RF for improved resistance to RF interference, the remote provides up to 100' range though walls, floors and doors, indoors or outdoors. The MX-850's smart memory backup system retains programmed memory for up to 10 years, even with dead batteries. Bright EL backlighting enables a customer to use the remote control in any low light environment.
