Control4, an innovator in IP-based residential and light commercial automation systems, announced today a new Recharging Station for its SR-150 and SR-250 System Remote Controls, eliminating the inconvenience of having to replace batteries.
Designed as a quick, simple and easy retrofit for existing SR-150 and SR-250 System Remotes, the Remote Recharging Kit includes a sleek recharging station, a replacement battery cover with charging pins, and a lightweight, high-power-density rechargeable lithium polymer battery. Upgrades of existing remotes can be performed by the dealer or end customer.
The low-profile design of the recharging station means that it can be discretely positioned near the location where the remote sees the most use without negatively impacting the décor of the room, or just as easily secreted away in a nearby drawer or storage compartment. Customers simply place their SR-150 or SR-250 flat on the charging station when the remote isn't in use, or when receiving a "Low Battery" notification.
The Recharging Station also features a charging indicator LED that can be adjusted to high or low brightness, or turned off completely.
The Control4 Remote Recharging Station will be available in April 2013 for $130 from authorized Control4 dealers. For more information visit Control4.
