RKM-1 In-Wall Audio Distribution Keypad

This model has been discontinued - See the RKM1+

The RKM-1 is a simple, intuitive keypad designed for flush-mount installations in walls or cabinets. Designed for multi-room audio control, the RKM-1’s open architecture provides the flexibility to control almost any multi-zone receiver or distributed audio system. Sized for a single gang electrical box, the RKM-1 incorporates eight fully-programmable hard buttons and a customizable LED film which provides feedback of power status, selected source, and volume level.

Perfect for multi-room audio control, the RKM-1 is designed to have a clean, elegant style. It fits into a single gang electrical box, ensuring seamless integration into most homes and buildings. Using the available software drivers from RTI, the RKM-1 can communicate bidirectionally with many popular multi-zone receivers when used together with two-way compatible RTI Control Processors (MRP64, ZRP6, XP8).

The RKM-1 can directly control almost any audio/video component up to 1000 feet away using its infrared output port. When used with the available RTI automation devices, the RKM-1 is capable of infrared routing, relay control, power sensing and RS-232 communications for advanced control. Programming is easy and convenient thanks to the Windows® based Integration Designer software.

*Integration Designer software only available to authorized RTI dealers.
