MXW-920 OWNER’S MANUAL
Congratulations!
Thank you for purchasing the Complete Control MXW-920 Waterproof wand-style controller. This unit can directly control every IR
device in your home. You can also control devices located in
different rooms by integrating an MRF base station. Controlling your
home is simple with the MXW-920 remote.
Waterproof IR/RF wand-style controller
The Waterproof MXW-920 wand-style controller can be used
outside as well as indoors. It’s the perfect controller for kitchen, bath
and poolside use. It is not intended for underwater use or exposure
to sugar-based substances (e.g., soda or lemonade). Make sure the
MXW-920 is dry when changing batteries. IP Code 54, JIS Class 4.
Ideally suited for poolside control
Entertain your guests by controlling your sound system or more
while poolside. Use the MXW-920 by the pool without the worry
of damaging your remote.
Controls up to 40 devices
The MXW-920 has the capacity to control up to 40 devices
throughout your home. Turn off devices that are not in use when
walking by a room. It’s like having a master key for your electronic
devices.
Ultra-reliable narrow band RF - compatible with URC
418 MHz RF Base Stations
The MXW-920 can communicate directly to RF base stations, such
as the MRF-350 and the MRF-260. It also natively communicates
with URC Lighting via 418MHz RF. This gives the MXW-920 the
ability to control your system without being in direct line-of-sight.
Fast setup of complex systems via Complete Control PC editor
To fully automate an audio/video system, and integrate one way
automation of servers etc., the programmer must have detailed
knowledge of each component, LAN configuration, WiFi
optimization and how the system is connected and operated. Only
a trained and certified professional audio/video installer can install
an MXW-920 remote control in a timely and efficient manner.
