A magic, seamless solution that connects you with your home and loved ones in a whole new way. Wish no longer, your dream has come true.

The brains behind the magic.


Whether displayed proudly in an audio rack, or hidden safely inside a cabinet, Total Control's processors do all of the heavy lifting behind the scenes and let you focus on the magic.

MRX-10 Advanced Network System Controller


Housed in a sleek, attractive package that looks like every other component of your system, the MRX controller uses your home network to connect your audio and video components — and everything else you want to control — to the stylish Total Control handheld remotes and in-wall touchscreen keypads.

The exterior is rich, glossy, piano black that's accented by a muted, glowing blue stripe. But don't look for an On/Off switch — it doesn't need one. Once installed, you'll never have to start, stop or adjust your MRX controller. Nice to look at — no need to touch.

One of the most enjoyed benefits of a MRX controller-based system is known as "Two-way control with feedback." This means that the MRX installed in your equipment rack and the remote control you hold in your hand have two-conversations. Volume information, room temperature, album artwork, etc., can be transmitted from the MRX to the remote and displayed on the LCD for your enjoyment.


 

MRX-1 Network Controller


AV Technologies Group may decide to extend control over specific components to other locations in your home by adding MRX substations. The flexibility of combining various elements of the fully integrated Total Control system assures compatibility between virtually every type of A/V component on the market.

A family of brilliant, intuitive controls.

URC is known as the worldwide leader and premium manufacturer of comfortable, ergonomic human interfaces — which are always beautiful to look at and easy to use. With a number of options for remotes, keypads, and touchscreens, it's your choice.
 

TRC-1280 Touch Screen Handheld Remote


It may look like the remote control of your childhood, but don't be fooled! The TRC-1280 features a bright, colorful LCD and responds when you touch an icon with your fingertip. It also features intuitively placed buttons to control all options quickly and conveniently.

When not in use, the TRC-1280 sits in its charger base to assure that it's always fully-powered and ready for action — and that you'll always know where to find it. Both remote and charger are designed to match any décor.

TRC-780 Handheld Remote Control


Big in features yet smaller in size, the TRC-780 delivers most of the functionality of its larger kin and displays information on a modern, dazzling color OLED interface. It's elegant design will look great on your coffee table — and you'll appreciate how the ergonomic design fits your hand like it were made just for you.

Handy Red-Blue-Green-Yellow color buttons facilitate access to certain cable and satellite box commands. And like all URC remotes that use RF, you can control A/V components through doors, floors and walls — even from outside.

 

TKP-2000 In-wall Two-Way Network Touchscreen


You'll be the envy of the neighborhood when you control your home with a beautiful, stylish TKP-2000. Because it's permanently connected to your home's wireless network, the TKP-2000 is always ready with real-time information about your environment. With the press of one button you can dim the lights, fire up your favorite play list from your iPod and set your surround sound system to the correct volume. You can also watch what's happening in the backyard when AV Technologies Group adds URC surveillance cameras to your system.

This is the controller no kitchen should be without! Check weather, traffic, thermostat, security alarm settings — or simply tune in Pandora® or your favorite internet music service. You'll never wonder "What happened to the remote?" because it's always right there in the wall, at eyelevel.

iPad and iPhone Control


With our Total Control app, you can now turn your iDevices into friendly, mobile controllers for your home system. This powerful app puts it right in your hands. Monitor, manage and control your entertainment, lights, climate, security and more within your home or building. No per-device fee makes this a welcome addition to every Total Control system. And, like all URC remotes, we've taken great care with a sophisticated design that is easy on the eyes and easy for everyone to use!

(Please note: Total Control Mobile requires a WiFi connection to the local area network that is host to the Total Control MRX-10 and other devices. Coming in the future – secure external access!)

 

TKP-100 In-wall Network Keypad with Hard Buttons


There are situations where you want the convenience of an in-wall, dedicated keypad that's always ready and never lost, but don't need all of the features of the colorful TKP-2000. That's where the TKP-100, with its clearly labeled, backlit buttons, literally shines!

The TKP-100 is a simple, modern in-wall interface that's unobtrusive yet gorgeous. Have one installed at the top of the basement steps and you can control lighting and music, for example, before you go downstairs. Or have one placed in the garage, near the entrance to your home. It's handy to be able to make the "one last check" to confirm that the houselights are off before leaving home.

Tuned to perfection.


The Total Control products deliver the highest quality music, with so many sources to choose from, including your personal music collection, internet radio, SiriusXM®, Rhapsody®, Pandora®, your legacy vinyl and iPod.

DMS-1200 Multi-Zone Network Amplifier


Listen to all of your favorite music anywhere in your home. No matter where you keep your music — CD collection, iPod, computer hard drive or online internet service — the DMS-1200 can find it and provide you with crystal-clear audio that's professional quality and sounds as good as the original source.

URC uses ground-breaking "network streaming media" technology that delivers great sound. This means you'll listen to CD-quality audio that's not compressed and noisy. Your neighbors will envy the sound quality of your system.

Future-proof your whole-house audio system. Add the DMS-1200 scalable multi-zone network amplifier and rest assured that your system will never have a limit on the number of music sources that can be added.

DMS-100 Single-Zone Amplifier


The DMS-100 single-room amplifier makes it easy to add premium audio quality streams to any one area of your home.

The larger DMS-1200 amplifier can send music to up to 32 separate areas of your home (including outside). So why on Earth would you need a smaller DMS-100 amplifier? Suppose that you have a legacy audio device in an upstairs bedroom and you want to share it on the network with the other rooms in your house. AV Technologies Group can add a DMS-100 to that room and — presto! Enjoy the music in that room, and you can send that music to the centrally located DMS-1200 for distribution throughout your home.

DMS-AV Home Theater Amplifier / Processor


Meet the URC DMS-AV, the groundbreaking Home Theater Amplifier and Processor that delivers incredible realism and power to all your movies and music. Delivering crystal clear audio and video, the DMS-AV incorporates 7.2 surround sound, Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio™ and URC's proprietary multichannel stereo and surround modes. Plus, you'll enjoy true video scaling up to 1080p with a musical performance to match.

When installed as part of URC's Total Control® or Complete Control™ system, you gain a level of ease-of-use that's unparalleled. From handheld remotes to brilliant in-wall touchscreens—and even your iPad®—it takes just one touch to dim the lights and start a movie right on cue. And because it connects to your home network, with Total Control you can expand your theater into the entire house. Imagine taking a legacy CD player and streaming music from it into other rooms—and being able to control song choice and volume from anywhere.

With the DMS-AV you also gain a foundation piece that is capable of growing with your family as your needs change. Simply add other URC DMS Amps and you can enjoy up to 44 audio inputs! So sit back and let our DMS-AV transport you to the theater or concert. It will move you and your guests—every time you turn it on.

Music to share throughout your home, throughout your life.

SNP-1 Streaming Network Player


This is as close to magic as it gets. When your installer connects a SNP-1 to your home network, every Total Control amplifier has access to the immense assortment of audio entertainment that the SNP-1 can access. This includes Sirius/XM, Pandora, Rhapsody and vTuner.

All you have to do to enjoy your favorite music is make a selection from your Total Control remote or keypad. Tuning in your favorite music — and enjoying it at its maximum quality level — is really that simple.

PSX-2 Personal Server


Attention iPod users: The PSX-2 Personal Server gets you to your music selection faster.

There's a reason why we call the PSX-2 a Personal Server. The award winning PSX-2 turns every iPod in your home into an incredible, easy to navigate customized music server.

With the PSX-2 you will enjoy your iPod in ways you never knew were possible. With one button press from any URC remote you can do things that could take dozens of button presses on the iPod alone. When you hear a song you enjoy, instead of having to browse through hundreds of artists in your collection, just press the "Play More From this Artist" button on your Total Control remote or keypad. And operations like "Shuffle this Genre," for example, are only one touch away.

Bonus: Any new content that is added to your iTunes library can be synchronized to the iPod in the PSX-2 without touching it. How cool is that?

For your security, comfort and care.


Total Control surveillance products allow you to keep watch over your family and home from anywhere in the world — or from the comfort of the family room easy chair.

 


You may have never realized how useful and convenient surveillance cameras can be. Think of the places around your home where you'd like an extra set of eyes. Backyard playground? Swimming pool? Nursery? Maybe just the front door.

Tech Dwellings can recommend the best camera to suit your needs. For harsh outdoor conditions, for example, the rugged dome-type camera is a great choice. It's vandal proof and can withstand foul weather. For indoor use, a smaller model may be more appropriate.

Finally, affordable cameras that display images you can actually see!

Have you ever wondered if it was possible to control the lights, music, security system, even temperature - from across the room?  Or how about from across the globe?  It all begins with a simple touch...

 

The Elan g! Difference

Elan Partners with other best-in-class entertainment, climate, security, lighting, irrigation and other home automation companies to make sure our products and theirs work together seamlessly.  It is this proven integration that makes an Elan g! System the safe foundation of any Smart Home control solution you desire.  

 

Think of the things you do to get ready in the morning: turn on the lights, check the weather and traffic reports, maybe even turn on the morning news. g! delivers your world at a glance with a personalized dashboard for your home. Customize your screen with the things you use most such as weather forecasts, camera video, lighting, even security system features. With g! it’s all about you. 

 

What if you could press a button to access your entire collection of music and movies – from anywhere in your home? g! catalogs your media and displays them with brilliant cover art right on your TV, touchscreen or mobile device, making it easier than ever to find your favorites. If you’re really into music, you’ll love finding new favorites with Pandora®, Rhapsody® and other streaming services. 

 

Does your current security system ramp up the lights when the alarm sounds? Does it flash the exterior lights to alert the neighbors? g! adds this intelligence to better protect your investment and your family. Plus, it can send email alerts to your smart phone and allows you to remotely arm or disarm the system. 

 

Studies have shown that lowering a thermostat just three degrees can save up to 10% on your energy bill. With g! not only can you automate these adjustments, but you also gain access to detailed history views that allow you to monitor the system and make informed decisions about consumption. And if you own a vacation home, you’ll love the remote access that gives you control while away. 

 

If part of your bedtime ritual involves going from room to room checking the lights, there is a better way. With g! a simple touch can quickly turn them all off, or set the perfect party mood for the entire home. Save energy by dimming lights, managing shades and creating custom schedules for landscape lighting. Plus remote access features will ensure you always arrive to a well-lighted home. 

 

The dials and switches used by many irrigation systems can be confusing and difficult to use. g! takes the guesswork out of watering your lawn and puts you in control with a simple, easy-to- read display. Conserve water by setting up personalized schedules, or give landscapers limited remote access to monitor the system and make adjustments. 

 

While g! can’t drive your children to ball games, it is your digital personal assistant allowing you to check your email and leave recorded messages for others. Each family member can easily create a custom greeting for their voice mail and be sent alerts or e-mails when new items arrive. And you can play messages directly from the touchscreen or remotely using a PC or phone. 

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video must be priceless. Whether you’re checking on a vacation home, wanting to keep your family safe, or simply wondering who is at the front door – nothing gives you peace of mind like seeing them at your fingertips. And best of all you can view the same live video from your home, office, iPhone or anywhere in the world. 

 

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could turn on the spa from the bedroom as you don your swimsuit? Conserve energy with scheduling of pumps, water features and lighting, and controlling automated covers. Also monitor pool health, receive customized alerts and even control the system from your cell phone. Time may not float on by, but with g! you can. 

 

In this new digital world, too often photos stay trapped in a PC or camera. Unlock those memories by turning every touchscreen and TV into a digital picture frame. Nothing gets the family together for “movie night” like a larger-than-life slideshow of your last vacation on the big screen.
