WC-1 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the WC-1 Wireless Controller. The
WC-1 requires a ccGEN2 CP-1 Central Processor and compatible
interfaces, programmed by a Custom Professional, to control your
home. Communicating over the network using Wi-Fi, or a wired
LAN connection, the WC-1 receives commands from the Central
Processor and relays them, via IR, to four or more devices.
Controlling your home is simple with the WC-1.
Features and Benefits
=
IR Flasher Outputs
Control up to four components without ever getting up from
your seat.
=
Front IR Blaster
Control IR devices where an IR emitter cannot reach the
device’s location, like a TV over a fireplace.
=
Network Connectivity
Receives commands over the network from an CP-1 Central
Processor and then sends IR signals to control your components.
=
Compact Size
The small size of the WC-1 allows it to easily fit behind devices or
into places where a traditional base station would not.
Parts Guide
The WC-1 Wireless Controller includes:
1 - WC-1 Wireless Controller
1 - AC Power Adapter
4 - Mounting Screws
1 - Mounting Plate
4 - IR Emitters (3.5mm plugs)

Front, Rear and Bottom Panel Descriptions
Front Panel
The front panel consists of three indicator lights and an IR Blaster.
IR Blaster
Power LED: The Power LED illuminates when the unit is powered.
Status LED: When the WC-1 powers up, both the Status and Data
LEDs blink. When a network connection is made, the Status LED
color will vary depending upon its “connected state”:
● Good wireless signal: Green
● Poor wireless signal: Orange
● No Connection: OFF
Data LED: The Data LED flashes as the WC-1 transmits IR data.
IR Blaster: The front IR Blaster sends IR signals to one or more
components placed in direct line of sight.

WC-1 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
Rear Panel
The rear panel ports are:
DC 12V Power: Plug in the included 12V DC 1A power supply.
IR Outputs (Ports 1-4): Connect an included 3.5mm IR emitter to each
of the four IR outputs. Adjust the IR output signal strength for port 1
using the attenuator located on the bottom of the unit.
LAN Connection: If a wired connection is needed, this port uses a
standard Ethernet (RJ-45) plug to communicate via the local area
network.
Page 3
WC-1 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
Bottom Panel
The bottom panel consists of:
Reset Button: The Reset button is located on the bottom of the unit,
and requires a stylus, or paper clip to press the button. Pressing the
Reset button will cycle the WC-1’s power. (Unplugging the WC-1’s
power cable and then plugging it back in, also performs the same
function.)
Pressing and holding the Reset button for 15 seconds, will factory
default the WC-1, and return the unit back to its original
unprogrammed state.
Mac Address Sticker: The MAC Address (12 numbers) identifies this
wireless device when connected to the network.
IR Attenuator: Use the included adjustment tool (or a flathead screwdriver)
to increase or decrease the intensity level for IR output #1.

Network Installation
WARNING!! Before proceeding, a Custom Professional is required
to install and configure your WC-1.
The WC-1 is a network base station that allows full control of your
components with the use of ccGEN2 Central Processor and
compatible interfaces. Once installed on the network, and a button
is pressed on an interface, a command is transferred over the
customer’s network to the CP-1 Central Processor, which in turn is
routed to the WC-1 and then sends IR commands to the
components you specify.
1. Connect the WC-1 to the network (wired or wireless).
2. Connect your laptop to the same network as the WC-1.

Network Discovery & Download
WARNING!! Before proceeding, a Custom Professional is required
to install and configure your WC-1.
1. Open a new or current project. In Step 3: Add URC Devices, add
an WC-1 to a room included in your project which represents the
physical location of the unit.
2. In Step 6: Network Setup, discover the WC-1 using the same
process used for other Total Control network products in the
project.
3. Press the Download button within the Program menu.
4. Make sure to check the WC-1 checkbox, then press the
Download to Selected Devices (Direct) button.

Optimizing IR Flasher Levels
Test a few commands for each component before fixing the flasher
in place on the front panel of a device.
Since TiVo, Satellite Receivers and Cable Boxes are all extremely
sensitive to IR overload or saturation, you should test them
thoroughly. Put up the on screen guide and test the navigation
arrows. If operation is inconsistent or sluggish, lower the IR line
output for port 1 only and/or reposition the flasher.
If you still have sluggish operation, make sure IR routing is used
rather than ALL. When IR commands are sent to all the flashers in a
cabinet, you can have difficulty adjusting the IR Output. Program
ccGEN2 to send IR commands only via a specific IR port (1-4), then
readjust the IR Line Output level.
Connect an IR emitter to each IR output and run the emitter wire to
the IR receiver of each component. DO NOT STICK the emitter in
place yet. Adjust the LEVEL on IR port 1 or adjust the emitter
PLACEMENT for ports 2-4 until the component responds to IR
commands then stick the emitter in place.
IR Outputs: These ports can be as discrete, ‘routed’ outputs that
only send IR commands to the specific component that each
emitter is attached. This assures accurate control in that a given
component’s commands are routed only to its dedicated IR output
and emitter, preventing IR oversaturation from multiple emitters
flashing at the same time.
POLARITY: Tip=IR data, Base=GND.

WC-1 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
Overview of IR Routing
There are several considerations to take into account when you are
installing an WC-1 to control an array of components:
1. When connecting a flasher from the WC-1 to your component
make sure to notate the IR outputs being used. Program the same
port designations into the ccGEN2 program.
2. Assigning each component with its own individualized port
number helps to control multiple components eliminating interference.
3. Identical components must receive IR commands ONLY from a
dedicated flasher affixed to its front panel or a rear panel direct
IR input.
