Crestron Mobile Pro G iPad App Updated to Support Landscape Rotation and Gestures Navigation
Auto-Update for Top Grossing Lifestyle iPad™ App Now Available from the iTunes® App Store
The newest version of the Crestron iPad™ app is now available from the iTunes® App Store, where it was recently ranked the #1 Top Grossing iPad Lifestyle App. This update includes automatic portrait/landscape rotation and gestures navigation on the iPad for both Crestron and Prodigy® control systems. A beautiful graphic template with user-selectable backgrounds designed especially for the iPad is available from the Crestron website. There are also infinite possibilities for customization. Dealers can create their own branded designs and clients can enjoy the same look and feel on their iPad as on their Crestron touchpanels.
A control interface is only as powerful as the control system behind it; Crestron is the most powerful, flexible and reliable control system in the world. “We value our close partnership with Apple®. Connecting the most popular mobile device to the most powerful control system is a truly magical combination,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. “Adding landscape rotation and gestures navigation to our app takes full advantage of the iPad’s most popular features.”
Using Wi-Fi locally or 3G network remotely you can access and control Crestron and Prodigy homes from anywhere on the planet. The ultimate mobile touchpanel puts control at your fingertips, all in real time and from anywhere.
Imagine using your iPad™ as a touchpanel for your home entertainment system, or to control all the lights in your home. Crestron Mobile Pro G puts a professional-looking Crestron touchpanel user interface right on the popular Apple® iPad, enabling all kinds of customizable control capability, while utilizing the complete screen space on the iPad.
Crestron Mobile Pro G talks directly to the control system without any third-party software or external servers. With Crestron Mobile Pro G, simply tap the screen to select movies, music and TV in any room or adjust volume, light levels and room temperature with just a touch. Using the home Wi-Fi network locally or the powerful 3G networks remotely, total control is always at your fingertips.
Control multiple locations, such as a primary residence, vacation home and office, from a single, intuitive graphical interface that provides real-time status of room temperature, lighting levels, shade position, volume and digital media metadata including album, song and artist.
New locations are easily added by opening the “Connections” page on the iPad, and customized buttons, graphics and dynamic text can be added by your installer. Updates or changes to the control program are automatically sent to the iPhone when Crestron Mobile Pro G is launched.
With a large library of built-in graphics to aid in custom designs Crestron Mobile Pro G puts a virtual Crestron touchpanel in the palm of your hand for complete mobile control.
