Product Description

The new Remote Universal Controller is the most advanced remote UPB setup, management and trouble-shooting appliance on the market today, and now it also supports Z-Wave, X10 and ESI drapery controllers! Run UPStart from your desktop so you can manage, setup, change and trouble-shoot the UPB network at your office or your customer's home.

Any other remote access device has to replicate all of UPStart's setup, management, trouble-shooting and diagnostic capabilities. Not so with the Remote Universal Controller. Every time a new UPB product hits the market, new features are added to an existing product or new diagnostic capabilities (like the recent device-to-device communication test) are invented, any competing remote access server will have to be updated accordingly. With this Remote Universal Controller, however, just run the latest version of UPStart on your local PC and you will be able to apply new UPStart features to any customer site that has one installed.

It maintains the current date, automatically adjusts for daylight savings time and leap year, can control events based on local sunset and sunrise and it utilizes flash memory to insure the correct operation of all functions after power outages. It also can be used to:

  • Turn UPB, Z-Wave and/or X10 lights and appliances on and off according to pre-defined schedules
  • Open or close motorized drapes or shades according to pre-defined schedules
  • Make the house look lived-in even when the occupants are away
  • Monitor and control any UPB, Z-Wave, X10 module (including HVAC) from anywhere in the world
  • Mix and match UPB, Z-Wave, X10 and ESI modules for the perfect set of controls
  • Setup and troubleshoot your UPB network from anywhere in the world
  • Run remote monitoring and trouble shooting software for Z-Wave or X10 networks from anywhere in the world
  • Add countdown timer functionality to any UPB, Z-Wave or X10 module
  • Send email alerts for a wide variety of events
  • Operate a wide variety of motorized window treatments from the web, from an inexpensive touch screen, from a smart phone or from any UPB, Z-Wave or X10 transmitter
  • Monitor and control vacation homes with UPB, Z-Wave and/or X10 installed
  • Combine the RUC with motorized shades, IP-thermostats, IP-cameras and any UPB, Z-Wave or X10 modules to save energy
  • Use TCP/IP Posts to control other TCP/IP devices or to access the RUC-01 from other TCP/IP devices

Apps are available for the iPhone, iPad, Android and Chumby/Sony Dash or use your mobile device's web browser to control your UPB, Z-Wave, X10 or ESI network!

The SPIM-01 UPB Computer Interface Module provides a mechanism to convert UPB signals from a computer or NetPlace server to the AC network for transmission throughout the home. The SPIM module plugs into a standard AC outlet. On the bottom of the unit is a standard RS-232 DB-9 connector which is attached to a serial port on the computer or NetPlace server using the appropriate cable. The physical design of the SPIM module provides optimum flexibility by the use of a pass-through electrical plug with a non-controlled outlet on its face, resulting in no loss of outlet availability for other household devices. The key to the SPIM module's function is the Universal Powerline Bus technology for communication applications. Use of standard electrical wiring for communication transmission is possible due to lower noise levels, stronger signal strength and improved reliability surpassing technologies such as X-10, CeBus and others. UPB technology also allows enough individually addressable devices to control the largest residential environment – usually without the need for phase coupling and without affecting or being affected by adjacent home environments.
