RTI Wins Four Awards at ISE 2023
Integration Designer® 11 and KX4 4-Inch In-Wall Touchpanel earn honors from CE Pro, Commercial Integrator, Residential Systems, and Sound & Video Contractor
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Feb. 9, 2023 — Leading control and automation manufacturer RTI today announced that its Integration Designer 11 control application programming software and KX4 4-Inch In-Wall Touchpanel won several awards at ISE 2023 in Barcelona. Integration Designer 11 and the Coral user interface were honored with the Whole House Control 2023 Top New Technology (TNT) Award from CE Pro, as well as two Best of Show at ISE 2023 Awards from Residential Systems and Sound & Video Contractor (SVC). In addition, the KX4 earned a TNT Award from Commercial Integrator in the touchscreen category.
“ISE was a show that wasn’t to be missed! There was so much energy, and we appreciated the many great conversations we had with integrators that stopped by our stand,” said Bill Hensley, RTI Head of Global Marketing. “The best thing about shows is the direct feedback we get from integrators who work with our products every day, and both Integration Designer 11 and the KX4 touchpanel were designed in response to integrator needs. We appreciate the time and effort the judges and editors of CE Pro, Commercial Integrator, Residential Systems, and SVC put into these awards. We’re honored to be among the winners.”
RTI Integration Designer 11 presents unlimited opportunities within a single platform. Of particular interest to integrators is the Coral template, with pre-configured home pages, swappable backgrounds, customizable scroll bars across the touchscreens, and new fonts. While Coral delivers a stunning interface for end-users, residential integrators benefit from the auto-programming that adds efficiency to every project. Another example of added efficiency is the built-in driver library, which saves time on every project by enabling integrators to find all drivers without leaving the software and searching on a separate driver site. For commercial integrators, the RTI interface can be completely customized, either building off a Coral template, or designing from scratch. RTI delivers the ultimate flexibility to meet customers’ specific needs.
The KX4 combines an in-wall touchpanel and hard button input with a built-in control processor. The result is an enhanced automation solution in a single, convenient, and cost-effective unit that simplifies installation while maximizing performance. This creates new opportunities for dealers, particularly in commercial (conference room) or educational (lecture hall) settings. It boasts a 4-inch high-resolution capacitive touch display with five configurable hard-buttons that can be customized with RTI Laser Shark engraving. The built-in control processor delivers robust capabilities to maximize integration with connected devices, including support for two-way drivers and the RTIPanel App, and can be used as either a standalone processor or a secondary processor in larger configurations. Back panel connections enable direct control of devices via IR, IP, and two RS-232 six-voltage sense ports with sense-event capabilities, and four relays for control via contact closure.
