With children forced to adapt to
Learn From Home scenarios during
the pandemic, integrators often had to
deploy home office setups in more
than one area of a home.

Translating Residential Success into Commercial Growth
Designing control and automation solutions that support
both residential and commercial
markets has been a URC priority
for years. When creating our
Total Control system including
Accelerator, our flexible operating system, we built a platform
delivering ease-of-installation,
unique customization and powerful scalability. By adding numerous two-way modules designed
for the commercial market such as video conferencing, room
scheduling, video matrix, DSPs, DMX, HVAC and access, Total Control has helped fuel the success of our dealers across
both market segments.
URC helps its dealers create valuable commercial installations such as bars, restaurants, gyms, auto dealerships
and small offices including medical offices. Many of these
projects are highly profitable. This success allows dealers to
expand their commercial business to larger projects such as
schools, MDUs, hospitals, government offices and stadiums.
To help drive this growth, URC recently launched the
HDA (high-definition audio) line of amplifiers with both
markets in mind. Features like ducking/paging, mic inputs,

parametric EQ and a 70V option make HDA an excellent
choice to enable superior commercial installations.
This growth has spurred evolution in UI. URC touchscreens, like our TKP-9600, are easily integrated, intuitively
designed and easily customized to support commercial
deployments. With plans for a new voice activated touchscreen launching in 2021, we see great opportunity to
expand our offering of elevated UI experiences.
With accelerated growth anticipated following the pandemic, URC's strategy in the commercial market is based on
working with our dealers and understanding the needs of
the commercial customer by:
Delivering consistency and repeatability across
multiple locations
Programming branding and customization with an
eye toward guest engagement
Enabling easy integration of existing or new
systems and devices
Conserving resources by controlling climate,
lighting and security
Automating simple tasks driving staff efficiency
Supporting safety and wellness initiatives
