Core Brands has announced the release of Auriel 2.0 – a major platform update that adds streaming audio, climate and lighting control, plus remote access features – to the multi-room audio control platform.

Lighting control devices and wireless thermostats now connect to the Auriel Controller, making the Niles Auriel MRC-6430 a home automation controller. Auriel 2.0 delivers simple access to lighting scenes and climate scheduling with a few clicks on a Niles handheld remote (nHR200), wall-mounted touch panel (nTP4, nTP7), or the Auriel app for Android and iOS mobile devices.

Auriel 2.0 updates the integrator-friendly Auriel Wizard, which cuts configuration time to just minutes instead of hours. With a tablet or PC, the installer is whisked through simple decisions that quickly configure the system for lighting scenes and thermostat programming, plus sources, zone preferences, home theater control and user interface customization.

Auriel 2.0 also now has Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn and other popular internet radio services built into the MRC-6430 chassis. One chassis delivers audio to six zones through seven distinct input sources. For larger homes, two chassis can be linked together to create a 12-zone system.

See the new Auriel 2.0 in action at CEDIA 2016 in Core Brands Booth #4100.
