    The Perfect Start To Your Home's Smarts

    Total Control®, URC's most popular system has very BIG news. Our latest central controller breaks all barriers for your entry into enjoying a smart home. The MRX–8 is an ideal way to make the move to adding simple yet powerful automation to your home. Small in size but huge on value, this piece sits in any room or a central equipment rack and delivers robust control of your entertainment, lights, security, door locks, temperature and more. Ideal for small to mid–range homes, offices, and condos, this robust control center stores and issues control commands for all your components throughout the house over your home network.

    Excellent Expansion

    Possibilities for you to take total control are vast with the MRX–8. Your URC pro can easily add on other products including URC LED or Vivido™ wireless lighting, streaming music players from URC, Sonos® and others, thermostats and beyond. As your family expands or other lifestyle changes occur, there's no need to replace this unit. Control multiple devices all at once with a button press. Adjust the thermostat, dim lights, drop shades and start Junior's movie even if you're not at home. Mom and Dad will be thrilled to reduce the amount of time and thought it takes to leave the house with presets that lock all doors and shut off lights and music in every room. No need to check. It's a push on a remote or smart phone.

    Superior Service

    Thanks to the MRX–8's offsite programming feature, you typically won't have to wait at home until your installer arrives for service, saving time. Your URC pro can program and make updates from their shop giving you scheduling flexibility and convenience. The MRX–8 offers rock–solid reliability, phenomenal features and limitless control possibilities all at URC's most affordable whole–house solution price.

    One Touch, Instant Entertainment

    Be the master of all your entertainment with powerful home theater control. Push a button and the screen turns on, the disc player displays your movie of choice, the surround sound comes to life, and the lights go down to start the show – no need to think, just enjoy.

    Superior Sound, All Around

    Enjoy access to all of your favorite music, regardless of the format–CDs, internet music and more. Stream the same tune throughout the house–or a different song in every room. Browse your iPod® by artist, cover art, song or genre from any touch screen, TV or keypad. And all the while, the music retains its full original quality.

    Light Up Your Life

    Set the mood – Turn on, off, and dim house lights individually or all at once. Create room lighting scenes on demand, or that activate automatically, even when you're not around. Delight in the perfect ambiance while conserving electricity.

    Safe And Secure, At Home Or Away

    Gain instant peace of mind from anywhere – inside or outside your home. Our friendly, simple interface enables one touch "arm or disarm," and shows any zone of your security system at a glance.
