Crestron Transforms the iPad™ into a One-Touch Entertainment and Control Center
ROCKLEIGH, NJ, April 16, 2010 – Crestron, the world leader in touchpanel control, announces its new iPad™ app, a seamless merging of iPad resolution and Crestron innovation. Exciting interactive features include browsing your Blu-ray collection, adjusting the lights and checking to see who’s at the door while you’re walking from the fridge to the home theater. Crestron introduced wireless, Web-based and mobile control before most of its competitors were in business, perfecting the ability to re-create personalized touchpanel control and user-defined backgrounds on virtually any device from any location. Now users can enjoy the magical iPad experience with the power of Crestron control.
“iPad is the hottest new thing right now, and Crestron is out in front with the most flexible and feature-rich control app available,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "Crestron fully embraces the iPad and Apple® integration, and we have lots of cool new features coming next, including landscape view and gestures navigation.”
The Crestron Mobile Pro™ G iPad app comes pre-loaded with a standard graphic template, and supports user-defined interfaces as well. If a Crestron dealer has its own, branded interface being deployed on touchpanels throughout the house, the same look and functionality can be used on the iPad. Just like the other Crestron apps, Mobile Pro G provides direct communication to the control system without any third-party software or external servers. Updates and changes to the control program are automatically sent to the iPad when the Crestron app is launched. Using the home Wi-Fi network locally or the powerful 3G and EDGE networks remotely, total control is always at your fingertips.
New Crestron features for iPad and iPhone® apps are coming soon.
