TRC-1280 TOUCH SCREEN  
Congratulations!  
Thank you for purchasing the Total  
Control TRC-1280 universal remote  
control. This unit can control every  
connected device in your home  
using the Total Control Advanced  
System Controller. You can also  
control devices located in different  
rooms via Wi-Fi. Controlling your  
home is simple with the TRC-1280  
remote.  
Two-way Instant-Wi-Fi controller with dazzling 2.8”  
color touch screen interface  
Receive two-way feedback for the rooms and music sources that can be  
controlled. Turn On/Off music while also viewing the current selections  
artist name, album and song title.  
Vibrating Haptic Technology confirms button presses  
The TRC-1280 has an Active Matrix color TFT display with vibrating  
Haptic feedback technology. When touching of an LCD button, the  
screen vibrates to confirm the button press.  
Includes rechargeable Lithium Polymer Batteries and charger base  
The TRC-1280 comes equipped with a Lithium Polymer battery that is  
rechargeable with the 6V charging base. You no longer need to waste  
money on disposable batteries or trying to locate misplaced batteries.  
Requires MRX-10 or compatible URC Advanced System  
Controller  
In combination with an MRX-10 or compatible URC Advanced  
System Controller, the TRC-1280 can control your system without  
being in line-of-sight of the equipment by sending the commands  
over your home network.  
Programmable only by URC certified professional programmer  
on-premises or off-premises via the Internet  
To fully automate your audio/video system, the programmer must  
have detailed knowledge of each component, LAN configuration,  
Wi-Fi optimization and how the system is connected and operated.  
With the ability to connect the TRC-1280 to an MRX-10 or  
compatible URC Advanced Controller, your installer can program the  
remote, with your permission, from his office should the need arise.  
Only a trained and certified professional audio/video installer can  
install a TRC-1280 remote control in a timely and efficient manner.
