Crestron users now have another way to control some of those super-cool home features. The company recently announced plans to make the Mobile Pro Control App available to Android customers.
Available through the Android Market, the new app can turn any Android device into a Crestron touchscreen. That means that you can access lighting, thermostats, entertainment, security, and everything else that’s connected—from pretty much anywhere.
Mobile Pro provides real-time status updates of room temperatures, shade positions, lighting levels and meta-data such as cover art, song and artist. It even allows users to access streaming video from connected security cameras.
Another added bonus is that this app can work across multiple platforms. That means that you can have one Crestron system accessible from both an iPhone and an Android tablet, as well as across multiple mobile carriers.
App: Crestron Mobile Pro
Find it Here: Android Market, iTunes
