The Apple iPhone and its larger cousin the iPad boast a range of apps that include control of just about any device. So it shouldn't be too surprising that control giant Crestron announced an app that transforms the iPad into a full Crestron touchpanel.
Crestron control app on the iPad (and iPhone) With the download, a tap on the Apple tablet screen provides real-time control of Crestron AV systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more, from any location. The iPad will then communicate with a Crestron control system via the 3G, 3GS or EDGE cellular networks or Wi-Fi.
“Crestron is committed to offering great solutions for integrating Apple products into the home, school and office,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron director of marketing. “Our Mobile apps are fully compatible with the iPad, and we’re delighted to add the iPad to our selection of Apple-based solutions.”
Other Apple-based Crestron solutions include the iServer, which is the only audio server on the market that uses an iPod as its internal hard drive, and has won multiple awards for its innovative design and ease of use. Crestron XPanel for Mac delivers remote access and control of Crestron systems from any connected iMac or MacBook, and Crestron iPod docks provide all the connectivity needed to share audio and video throughout an entire home or office AV system.
