Web Mountain’s RUC-01
The RUC-01 Remote Universal Controller is the most advanced remote setup, management and trouble-shooting appliance on the market today. Mix and match UPB, Zwave, Insteon, X10 and ESI drapery controllers for the ultimate in control. Control your home from anywhere in the world, using your smart phone or any other browser device. Use inexpensive touch screens in your home to manage any UPB, Zwave, Insteon, X10 or ESI components.
The RUC-01 enables you to run UPStart from your desktop so you can manage, setup, change and trouble-shoot the UPB network at your house or your customer’s home. You can also run remote monitoring software for Zwave, Insteon, X10 and ESI installations.
UPStart is and will always be the state of the art for the UPB universe. Any other “remote access” device will have to replicate all of UPStart’s setup, management, trouble-shooting and diagnostic capabilities. 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. Not so with the RUC-01. 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 a RUC-01 installed.
The RUC-01 implements all of the scheduling functionality of our industry-leading TIM-01 timer, so you can use this same device for outdoor lighting, Christmas lighting, making your house look lived in while you are away etc. Unlike the TIM-01, however, the RUC-01 can schedule Zwave, Insteon, X10, and ESI drapery controllers in addition to UPB modules.
The RUC-01 maintains the current date, it automatically adjusts for daylight savings time and leap year, it 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.
Use the RUC-01 as an email originator. Set up various triggering links that will cause the RUC-01 to send an email to you (or your customer) to inform you of problems or issues that need to be addressed.
All programming is done from user friendly, web based screens. Various networking options are provided including DHCP or fixed IP addressing, access using DYNDNS type of services, and remote access using port forwarding.
Use the browser on your iPhone, iTouch, iPad, Android or Blackberry or use apps intended for a Chumby, Sony Dash, Android or other mobile device to control your UPB, Zwave, Insteon, X10, ESI or mixed-protocol network.
