URC Announces Availability of TKP-7000 In-Wall Touchscreen

Slick new Total Control® interface joins existing remote controls, keypads and iOS app to offer clients the ultimate in choice.


Harrison, N.Y. May 8, 2013 URC today announced the immediate availability of its new TKP-7000 In-Wall Touchscreen, a significant new addition to the wide variety of interfaces for use with URCs Total Control® whole-house control system.

Featuring a seven-inch, 1024 x 600 full-color graphical screen, the TKP-7000 is an intuitive control device that helps clients simplify their lives by adding control of the most important electronic aspects of their home or business, including entertainment, lighting, climate, security and more. The TKP-7000 offers full graphic feedback from both URC devices and selected third-party devices. When combined with URC cameras, the TKP-7000 can display live video for surveillance.

Notable features of the TKP-7000 include:
  • Wired LAN connection. Connect an Ethernet cable from a PoE switch and youre ready to go.
  • Customizable Status Bar. Users can see pertinent info (weather, climate, Room Linked status, Vacation Mode status, sunrise, sunset, etc.) at a glance.
  • Rooms Menu. Besides the ability to temporarily Room Link DMS music zones, the Rooms Menu offers a snapshot of whats going on in every room/zone. By tapping on a room, the TKP-7000 converts into a controller for that particular room.
  • Shortcuts Pop-Up. This menu allows the user to save common devices and activities for easy selection. Users can keep up to six activities at their fingertips.
  • Capacitive Touchscreen. Users simply swipe or flick to navigate menus. By incorporating gesture control, every screen can be explored by simple finger swipes.
  • Time and Weather Module. Accessible via a single button-press, this full-screen display keeps users up to date with the time, date and weather conditions.
The TKP-7000 is wall-mountable and fits easily into a dual-gang opening. Power can be supplied to the TKP-7000 via a single Ethernet cable connected to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) router/switch, or a PoE injector.

The TKP-7000, like all Total Control products, is custom programmed by integration professionals using URC Accelerator editing software. MSRP is $849 and availability is immediate.
