Nearly any parameter, such as volume and buttons, within Composer can be assigned a control number. Composer uses control numbers to identify which parameter to adjust, based on the control command issued by the remote control device. Any device, such as a smart phone, laptop, or iPad that has the ability to send control commands across a network or via RS-232 may be used as a remote control. Symetrix manufactures three different series of remote controls:

  • ARC-Series
  • W-Series
  • T-series touchscreens.
