Crestron, seemingly the first control manufacturer to do so, has unveiled a home automation app for Apple’s iPad.

Just like its iPhone and iPod touch app, the iPad app “transforms the Apple iPad into a full Crestron touchpanel.”

The iPad App will use 3G, 3GS or Wi-Fi to communicate with the Crestron system and control lighting, shades, room temperatures and more.

“Crestron is committed to offering great solutions for integrating Apple products into the home, school and office,” says 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.”

This surely is only the beginning of a slew of home control apps that will be released in anticipation of the iPad’s arrival in late March (3G models will ship in April). Savant, which plans on releasing an iPad app, says the iPad will redefine home automation.
