KP-4000 NETWORK KEYPAD  
Introduction  
The KP-4000 is a Network Keypad with the ability to control audio  
video components, energy management devices, multizone matrixes,  
PCs, iPods, and whole house URC Lighting. MAC addressing enables  
the use of multiple KP-4000s and multiple MRX-1s to control as  
many components as needed throughout the house.  
1. The KP-4000 communicates over the LAN (Local Area Network)  
to IP controlled components and the URC MRX-1 Network Base  
Station.  
2. The MRX-1 receives com-  
mands and controls the com-  
ponents via IR or Serial.  
PoE Injector  
Router  
MRX-1 Network Base Station  
3. Self-adhesive “Flashers” affix to  
the Infrared sensors on the front  
panels of your client’s compo-  
nents. The Flashers relay com-  
mands to components. The flash-  
ers plug in to the MRX-1 rear  
flasher line outputs via their 10  
foot cables. The MRX-1can also  
connect to components with rear  
panel IR Inputs via its adjustable  
IR Line Outputs.

Features and Benefits  
2-Way IP and RS-232 Home Theater AVRS  
Via the unique URC 2-Way database, installers can drag and drop  
2-Way pre-programmed modules into any KP-4000 for multi-zone  
receivers with either IP or via the MRX-1, RS-232 control.  
2-Way IP Control of Media on PCs and iPods  
The high speed of the LAN enables the KP-4000 to display lists of  
artists, albums or songs and to display the cover art of the selected  
album on the Now Playing screen of the remote control from the  
PSX-2 Personal Server or from a PC.  
User Configurable Internet RSS for News, Sports, Stocks and  
Weather  
The well known URC modules for News, Sports, Weather and  
Stocks are all available updated to the KP-4000 screen and of  
course, are completely user set.  
User set Scenes for URC Lighting via RFTX-1  
Your client can fully control the lighting in their home without  
expensive black boxes and exotic wiring. A lighting system can be  
as simple as a single URC RF lamp dimmer on a lamp that theyd  
love to control without getting out of a chair.The KP-4000’s optional  
RFTX-1 transmitter directly controls URC RF Dimmers and  
Switches. Your client can brighten, dim, and recall scenes, and they  
can store new scenes whenever they like, without a PC or a pro-  
grammer. They simply manually adjust each dimmer to the new set-  
ting, then press and hold a scene button on their KP-4000 (just like  
storing radio stations in a car radio!).  
Local Control via RFTX-1 & MRF Base Station  
Via an optional RFTX-1 transmitter, low cost wireless control of a  
local stack of components can be done via a standard MSC-400,  
MRF-350 or MRF-260.

Network Requirements and Power Options  
The KP-4000 must be connected to the same Local Area Network as  
the MRX-1 to function correctly. Additionally, in order for your  
client to enjoy internet features such as RSS feeds, the Local Area  
Network must be connected to the Internet.  
You have three options to power the KP-4000. The KP-4000 is a PoE  
(power over ethernet) device and can be powered as shown by  
either a PoE switch or a PoE injector (PoE injectors may be separate-  
ly ordered from URC). This has the advantage that a single CAT 5  
cable to the KP-4000 supplies all connections needed!  
However, should you be installing a KP-4000 in a system where it is  
convenient to run an additional two conductor wire to the KP-4000  
for power, you may power a KP-4000 from any 12V wall adapter  
with a 1 amp rating (12v wall adapters may be separately ordered  
from URC).  
Option 1: PoE Switch  
PoE Switch  
(not included)

KP-4000  
1. Connect the CAT 5 cable (RJ45) to the LAN connection on the  
rear of the KP-4000.  
2. Plug the other end of the CAT 5 cable to the PoE switch (not  
included), which will power the KP-4000 and ensure that the  
PoE switch is properly configured and connected to the Router.

will power the KP-4000.  
3. Connect the PoE injector (not included) to the Router.  
Option 3: No PoE: 12 Volt Power Supply

1. Splice a 12V 1Amp Power Adapter (not included) and connect to  
the rear Power input.  
2. For network connections to IP devices, MRX-1 and the internet,  
connect a CAT 5 cable (RJ-45) to the LAN connection on the rear  
of the KP-4000 and plug the other end into the Router.

Installation Notes  
MAC Address Labels/Reset Button  
MAC Address Label  
Reset Button  
The KP-4000 has a magnetic cover, simply pull it away from the  
keypads main body to remove.  
Reset Button: Press this button to reset the keypad.  
MAC address Labels: Tear off the 2nd label and stick it to your Job  
Documentation indicating which room the KP-4000 is installed.  
You’ll need the MAC address when you program the KP-4000.  
Connections  
LAN PoE RJ-45  
(Connects KP-4000 to Network)  
IR OUT/RFTX-1  
12V Power  
(only required if  
(not required in a PoE  
URC RF Lighting,  
installation)  
RF Base or a wired  
emitter is needed)  
In most installations, you will power the KP-4000  
via a single CAT 5 cable connected to the network.  
The KP-4000 is PoE, so you can power it from either  
a PoE power injector or any PoE switch.  
LAN PoE RJ-45: Plug an Ethernet RJ45 cable into a PoE switch or  
PoE injector (available via the URC Toolbox) to power the KP-4000  
or directly connect to a LAN Router if a Power Adapter has been  
connected.

IR OUT/RFTX-1  
This 3 Conductor removable connector can be used for either an  
RFTX-1 RF transmitter or for a URC IR emitter.  
RFTX-1 Connections  
In installations with URC RF lighting or a standard RF base station,  
you will need to add an RFTX-1 RF Transmitter to the KP-4000.  
Range can wildly vary, depending on the structure of the wall the  
KP-4000 is installed in. You can make the RF range much more pre-  
dictable by installing the RFTX-1 with the MRX-1 in most homes  
and this is the recommended method! However in some installa-  
tions, you may achieve satisfactory results from an RFTX-1 inside  
the wall cavity. To connect use the following terminations to the KP-  
4000:  
Data – Connect the white wire which is connected to the Tip of the 3.5mm plug  
GND – Connect the black wire which is connected to the bottom sleeve(base) of the  
3.5mm plug  
5V – Connect the red wire which is connected to the ring of the 3.5mm plug  
IR Emitter Connection  
Should you need to drive an IR emitter directly from the KP-4000,  
you connect the emitter to Data and GND. A URC emitter is wired  
with a cable that has a silver and a copper conductor. If you have  
another brand of emitter, reverse polarity if the first attempt doesn’t  
work. URC emitters can be successfully powered over long cable  
lengths if the wire gauge is at least 16 gauge.  
Data – Silver Conductor  
GND – Copper Conductor

12V Power  
This 2 conductor removable connector can be used to power the  
KP-4000 with a wall adapter in an installation where PoE is not  
available. You must run an additional two conductor cable to the  
KP-4000 to utilize this feature. Connect a spliced power adapter  
12Volt, 1AMP with the polarity (Positive & Negative) connected cor-  
rectly.  
-
+
12V 1A – Connect to the + conductor of a 12V, 1 Amp DC wall adapter.  
GND – Connect to the – conductor of a 12V, 1 Amp DC wall adapter.
