Control4 Adds iPad Home Control App
Control4 My Home iPad App
Controls lighting, temperature, security, entertainment, and more from iPad.
Control4 has introduced its Control4 My Home iPad App, which will allow users to control lighting, temperature, music, video, security systems, Web cameras and more.
Control4 says the Control4 My Home iPad App is different from the iPhone version of the application.
“It’s totally unique. We built it from the ground up,” says Control4 COO Glen Mella, who added that Control4 maintains the look of its Navigator GUI in all its interfaces. “There are lots of cool things on the iPad app that are not on the iPhone app.”
Mella cited, for example, the ability to access and control home lighting from the entertainment screen vs. having to jump to another screen.
The Control4 My Home iPad app can be downloaded for free. Users need to have the app authenticated to their system with a Mobile Navigator license, which can be obtained from a Control4 dealer.
Control4 says “later in the year” homeowners will be able to use the iPad app with a Control4 4Sight remote monitoring subscription “to turn lights on and off, lock or unlock doors, or access IP video cameras and security systems from the Internet.”
