PCS PulseWorx UPB Timed Event Controller
Program 20 Different Events
If you want the convenience of having certain lights come on at different times of the day, the TEC is the answer! This versatile unit can be programmed with 20 individual events, which can occur between once a day, to once a year. Based on geographic location, a built-in astronomical clock can automatically adjust for sunrise/sunset, leap year and daylight savings. All programmed data is protected by non-volatile memory and can only be changed or deleted by reprogramming, regardless of power outage durations. A factory installed lithium battery maintains accurate time and calendar information.
The TEC is part of PCS's PulseWorx line of residential lighting control products that utilize the patented UPB (Universal Powerline Bus) technology. Employ a programmable timer to automatically control lighting devices at preset times without the need for an expensive home management system.

Easy To Configure
Like all PulseWorx devices, the TEC can be initially configured using PCS's freeUPStart Setup Software tool. UPStart enables configuring such parameters as Network Name, Network ID, Unit ID, Room name, Device name, default on light levels, fade rates, LED colors, dimming disable, auto shut-off time, etc. as well as test the operation and communication strength of the device. UPStart has the option to configure an entire network off-line and then download the information into the devices after they are installed in the home.
UPB PulseWorx Lighting Control System
An integral part of a complete PulseWorx Lighting Control System, this device uses the patented UPB powerline communication technology (invented by PCS) to reliably communicate with any other UPB-compatible devices over the existing house electrical wires. No new wires are necessary, thus making PulseWorx perfect for retrofit situations. When initial configuration is complete, a single push of a button is all you need to activate any group of lights (or virtually anything else that connects to AC power wiring) throughout the house simultaneously.
