The KP-4000 is a hard-wired, in-wall IP controller. It’s a color touch screen keypad that can control virtually anything on an IP home network: URC’s PSX-2 Personal Server, A/V components, energy monitoring devices, HVAC, iPods, and whole house lighting—all via preprogrammed modules. Additional modules for IP cameras, security panels and other devices are in the works.
Network Requirements and Power Options
The KP-4000 must be connected to the same Local Area Network (LAN) as the MRX-1 to function correctly.
Additionally, in order to enable Internet features such as RSS feeds, the LAN must be connected to the Internet.
There are three ways to power the KP-4000. The KP-4000 is a PoE (power over Ethernet) device and can be
powered by either a PoE Switch or a PoE Injector. This is advantageous because both power and data are delivered
by the same CAT5 cable. The third option is to run an additional two conductor wire to the KP-4000 from a 12V
wall adapter with a 1 amp rating. (Note that PoE Injectors are available separately from URC.)
