Universal Remote Control

Headquartered in Harrison NY USA, Universal Remote Control, Inc. is a global leader in automation and control systems for residential and commercial applications.

AWE (based in Epsom, Surrey, England and with over 80 years in business) was announced as the exclusive UK distributor for URC in April 2011 and since then, has established URC as a leading control manufacturer in the UK.

May 2016 at the AWE Spring Expo, the leading CI distributor announced that it has been appointed as the URC International Hub for stock, training and technical support. URC assumed direct responsibility for international sales with AWE now being the central point of stock and support for many of the distributors across EMEA.

Established in 1991, URC entered the control market with handheld remotes for subscription broadcast providers and OEM models for top consumer electronics companies.

In 1994, URC introduced the legendary Complete Control system which is still on the market today. The line revolutionized home theater, changing the way that people view all forms of broadcast media and TV content.

The award-winning Total Control system, introduced in 2011, builds on the rich URC legacy to deliver whole-house automation and control for the premium segment. Total Control systems are custom designed and installed by select URC systems integrators.

In 2016, URC introduced the MX HomePro IoT (Internet of Things) control system. MX HomePro integrates with entertainment and smart home brands for control via handheld remote or mobile app.
