June 7, 2013, Rockleigh, NJ – Now available for download on the iTunes® App Store, the new Crestron apps for iPad® and iPhone®, featuring exclusive Smart Graphics, establish a new standard in mobile control for Apple iOS® devices.
The new apps provide everything programmers need to deliver the same dynamic experience on Apple iOS devices as on in-wall touch screens. Smart Graphics enable sliders, knobs, technology dashboards, scrolling lists, widgets and other iOS-like features in the app and on Crestron touch screens. Additionally, Smart Graphics enable programmers to save a touch screen project as an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch® project and then upload it, dramatically reducing programming time.
"The new Crestron apps with Smart Graphics change the playing field for iOS mobile user interface deployment," said Dave Hatz, Senior Design Engineer at AVI Systems. "Now we can offer our customers a user experience that's identical to what they know and love on their iDevices and on the installed touch screen. Plus, it's as quick and easy to deploy as the XPanel has been for many years."
The Crestron apps easily integrate Apple iOS 6 devices with Crestron 2-Series and 3-Series™ control systems, so you can monitor and control lights, media, climate, security and more from anywhere with a mobile broadband or Wi-Fi® connection. The apps also enable you to view video from IP-based security cameras, communicate with other Crestron touch screens using Rava™ SIP Intercom, and seamlessly integrate with third-party apps.
Integrators should download the Crestron apps for all new projects and take advantage of the cutting-edge graphics and immersive features that Smart Graphics provide. They can also download the new apps to reinvigorate the Crestron touch screen experience and generate incremental sales from existing clients. Download is free and the full version is enabled through in-app purchase. The apps include a demo mode that provides simulated operation without a connection to a Crestron control system.
