I have tried several remotes and brands over the last months and I finally came to a brand that nobody is, at least in this forum, talking about!!! RTI in my opinion beats head down the URC, Philips, Nevo and Harmony products. To be fair Harmony is not in this product territory. I have an 895 but I have used it for only 1 month since I found the features very limited. But the price is exellent. RTI are easy to the end user because thay have all the components needed to make a very complex system easy to operate by anyone. And to do this you need RF capability, central processors, voltage and video sensors, RS232, relays, powerful software and other advance features. The only thing missing si bi-directional control (feedback back to the remotes so that you know the status of equipment or if a command has been carried out) but this will be resolved later this year with the new XP-8 processor. You can start from a single ir remote and upgrade to a fully automated home with rf control and touchpanels on the walls. The only two better in this game are AMX and Crestron which are unlimited powerful, but they cost more. Note thought that the RTI remotes can be integrated with an AMX/Crestron automation system. The kind of similar products available are the following: Pronto Profesional: quite powerful with the expensive processor but still no two way rs232. Needs two hand to operate. Very good resolution screen. No other remotes or wall touchscreens available to connect to the processor to expand the system for the whole house. Universal Remote Control Pro Products: can be as powerful as RTI and the new processor offers 2 way rs232 control. There are a lot of dealers at remote central though that are complaining about their RF (a lot of interference) and are switching to RTI. No wall touchscreens available to connect to the processor to epxand the system for the whole house. Nevo Sl: good looking remote but the nevo link only offers ir control of equipment and limited ethernet control (can almost control the Sonos system!). No other remotes or wall touchscreens available to connect to the processor to expand the system for the whole house. Have in mind that the RTI products are only available through authorised dealers as is the software. Even if you manage to get a hold of the software it is better to leave the programming to an authorised experienced programmer that knows what he is doing and will make sure that your system becomes very eay to operate by anyone. Also the new T2C in my opinion is the best 1-hand remote with hard buttons available even considering the ones from AMX and Crestron. In fact a lot of installers are integrating them in their Crestron/AMX automation setups.
