Essential Info

The Web Mountain Technologies RUC-01K Remote UPB Controller is the most advanced remote UPB setup, management and trouble-shooting appliance on the market today. The Controller enables you to run UPStart from your desktop so you can manage, setup, change and trouble-shoot the UPB network. The RUC-01K implements all of the functionality of the industry-leading TIM-01 timer, so you can use this same device for outdoor lighting, Christmas lighting, making your house look lived in while you are away etc. The Controller maintains the current date, it automatically adjusts for daylight savings time and leap year, it can control events based on local sunset and sunrise and it utilizes flash memory to insure the correct operation of all functions after power outages. The RUC-01K can also be used as an email originator. Set up various triggering links that will cause the Remote UPB Controller to send an email to you to inform you of problems or issues that need to be addressed. All programming is done from user friendly, web based screens. Various networking options are provided including DHCP or fixed IP addressing, access using DYNDNS type of services, and remote access using port forwarding. Use the browser on your iPhone, iTouch or iPad or use apps intended for a Chumby, Sony Dash, or other mobile device to control your UPB network.

  • 1x - Power Supply

  • More Info

    UPStart is and will always be the state of the art for the UPB universe. Any other "remote access" device will have to replicate all of UPStart’s setup, management, trouble-shooting and diagnostic capabilities. Every time a new UPB product hits the market, new features are added to an existing product or new diagnostic capabilities (like the recent device-to-device communication test) are invented, any competing remote access server will have to be updated accordingly. Not so with the RUC-01K. Just run the latest version of UPStart on your local PC and you will be able to apply new UPStart features anywhere that has a RUC-01K installed.
