Capitol Adds MX HomePro Cloud-Based Home Control Systems to Its Selection of Advanced URC Products

MX HomePro Brings Simple One-Touch Control to the Connected Home

EAGAN, MN, October 31, 2016 – Capitol, the leading consumer electronics distribution source for residential systems and light commercial contractors as well as CE dealers, e-tailers and premium incentive resellers, is expanding its selection of URC® products with the addition of the recently introduced MX HomePro, a new cloud-based smart home control system that debuted last month at CEDIA Expo.

The MX HomePro is the third URC series to be offered through Capitol, which also offers URC’s Complete Control and Total Control products.

“URC resonates with custom pros because their products are among the most well-designed in any category, let alone one that emphasizes ergonomics as much as it does technology,” said Curt Hayes, President and CFO, Capitol. “MX HomePro extends the benefits of URC products to a consumer market that will appreciate the way it offers one-touch control of connected home products, from lighting and HVAC to security cameras and Z-Wave® products.

MX HomePro, which includes an ergonomic URC remote control, compact Smart Hub, and the MX HomePro mobile app, delivers on-the-go control via smartphone and tablet. Simple programming makes it easy to get started quickly, and the MC HomePro Editor helps dealers maintain customers’ systems from any location with internet access. The cloud-based Editor software features convenient programming via PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet.

Added Hayes: “URC is one of my favorite success stories in the custom channel. [URC Founder and CEO] Chang K. Park and his remarkable company continue to excel in a competitive market. MX HomePro is a good example of how URC sets new standards with every product rollout.”

EAGAN, MN, April 20, 2016 – Capitol, the leading consumer electronics distribution source for residential systems and light commercial contractors, has added ALLie to its selection of IC Realtime’s advanced video surveillance solutions for the commercial and residential market.

Available in both black and white (AHB10, pictured left, and AHW10, respectively) ALLie is a 360° spherical camera that lets users easily monitor an entire room, top to bottom, side to side, all with the help of a simple app.

For a limited time, and as a special benefit for Capitol’s customers, all ALLie cameras purchased from Capitol will include one year of free cloud storage.

“ALLie is the epitome of a crossover product that is equally at home on a dealer’s shelf and an integrator’s truck,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s President and CFO. “Installation is a snap for do-it-yourselfers who are comfortable working with a home network. But, for integrators, it’s an easy add-on for clients who want the convenience of a home or office security system that can be monitored from nearly any smartphone.”

ALLie’s dual 360° premium lens camera allows users to navigate across and around the home or small office, with an immersive video image that is literally void of blind spots. The video feed simultaneously covers 360°, both vertically and horizontally.

The camera is used in conjunction with the company’s proprietary ALLie app that seamlessly stitches together the video from the two sensors. The app makes it possible to control the camera with Bluetooth LE. Video recordings can even be uploaded to YouTube or other social media venues. Also, IC Realtime’s ALLie includes a two-way speaker and microphone for clear conversations with whomever is in the room being monitored.
