SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Nov. 9, 2017 — RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, announced today expanded capabilities for its hybrid KX3 3.5-inch in-wall touchpanel keypad. Ideal for installations in homes, classrooms, and conference rooms, the cost-effective device combines an in-wall touchscreen interface and a control processor into one powerful, customizable unit.
"Our KX3 in-wall controller is designed to give integrators amazing power and flexibility, while providing the user with an elegant, intuitive control interface," said Mike Everett, Vice President of Global Sales, RTI. "With the addition of the built-in processor the KX3 will perform beautifully as a cost-effective, all-in-one control solution or allow dealers to easily expand the capabilities of a larger RTI control system."
Allowing users to easily engage with their surroundings, the KX3 features a vivid 3.5-inch color WVGA touchscreen, five customizable hard buttons, and a completely customizable interface for extremely intuitive navigation. Under the hood is a robust central processor offering a myriad of benefits, including the ability to leverage RTI’s expansive library of two-way drivers for seamless integration with third-party electronic systems. In addition, the KX3 offers wired and wireless Ethernet, which allows users to view video from network security cameras and seamlessly perform programming updates. Convenient LEDs reveal room status while the built-in camera and microphone support video intercom functionality. Providing intelligent operation, a proximity sensor wakes the unit up when approached by a user.
The all-in-one KX3 enables powerful control without having to purchase an additional processor. Integrators can incorporate a smart device running the RTiPanel app and add an RTI wireless remote via the built-in 2.4 GHz ZigBee® antenna, giving their customers even more control options. Additional advanced features include an astronomical clock to schedule and automate events, six voltage sense ports, infrared output, and four relays. Its interface can be easily tailored to each specific installation with RTI’s Integration Designer® programming software.
