Crestron iPhone app highlighted in iTunes App Store30 June 2010
Crestron’s iPhone app is available in the Apps to Control Your World feature section on the iTunes App Store. Crestron Mobile Pro harnesses the power of the 3G network and Crestron control systems to stay connected to the home or office from anywhere in the world.
By using this app, it is possible to have a professional-looking Crestron touchpanel GUI on the popular Apple iPhone or iPod touch, enabling a wide range of customisable functions to control audio/video, lights, climate, blinds and security in the home or office. Multiple locations such as a primary residence, vacation home and office may be remotely controlled from a single iPhone. Mobile Pro communicates with the Crestron control system locally via WiFi or remotely over the 3G network for real-time control and display of room temperature, lighting levels, blind position, volume and digital media metadata including album, song and artist.
"A control interface such as an enabled iPhone or iPad is only as powerful as the control system it’s connected to. Crestron is the most powerful, flexible and reliable control system in the world," said Robin van Meeuwen, managing director of Crestron UK. "By creating the Crestron Mobile Pro, our app combines the world’s most popular mobile device with the most powerful control system, making it a truly magical experience."
