URC Announces Comfortable Big-Button Remote Control The lightweight, easy-to-hold Super Remote SR3 offers a large numeric keypad and simple macro programming to control up to three home entertainment devices.


HARRISON, N.Y., May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- URC, The Pioneer in Control Technology, is now shipping its Super Remote SR3. Priced affordably at $24.99 MSRP, it replaces up to three conventional remote controls for up to three components in a home entertainment system, including TVs, cable or satellite boxes, and DVD players.

The Super Remote SR3 is extremely accessible for users of all ages. Each button on its large, easy-to-see, backlit numeric keypad is in the shape of the number it represents. Overall, its buttons are larger than those of most standard remotes. Lightweight and comfortable to hold, its rounded body shape enables easy one-handed operation, while the ergonomic finger relief on its bottom makes it convenient for two-handed operation. Its soft touch keys require minimal pressure to operate.

The Super Remote SR3 is simple to set up; no PC or internet connection is required. Because it's both preprogrammed and learning, it's futureproof; the user can employ its built-in codes for the devices that need to be controlled, or it can easily "learn" buttons from old remotes.

Its time-saving, easy-to-use features include: -- "My Button" allows the user to begin a favorite activity with one button press. For example, it can turn on the TV and change to a particular channel.

-- Each of four "Favorites" buttons allows users to pre-program up to five channels for easy access.

-- "ALL OFF" button allows the user to shut down the entire system with one button press.

-- MacroPower(TM) makes several devices work together through one button press.

-- SimpleSound(TM) provides total volume control over all components, even those without built-in volume controls, like TiVos, DVD players and VCRs.

-- Sofa Mode avoids unnecessary battery drain by automatically turning the remote off if it's accidentally trapped under a sofa cushion.
