Looking for a way to talk to your home theater instead of merely cursing at it? URC may just have the answer with the latest addition to their network-based Total Control system. The TRC-1480 handheld remote features a push-to-talk button to control Amazon Alexa and Apple TV via Siri that alleviates privacy concerns by not

Other remote features include a 2.4" touchscreen LCD, 2-way metadata support, full slate of hard buttons, docking station and rechargeable battery, pickup sensor, power-saving quick connect WiFi, plus a modern new industrial design the company describes as " the most comfortable and intuitive remote control in its line up yet".
