A lot of products have an app component these days. Pro Control is giving another one of its products that convenience, announcing that its ProPanel control app is now compatible with the ProLink.r control processor.
Already available for the ProLink.z, RTI’s subdivision wanted to give the ProLink.r a little bit of love. Designed for use with the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, it allows users to have control over AV, lights, shades, door locks, and much more.
Other features include high-res graphics, portrait and landscape views, and WiFi support. No additional programming is needed and all graphics are stored on the ProLink processor, the Apple device, and the cloud.
“The ProPanel app has become a very popular complementary solution to our product line-up, offering programming simplicity for dealers, and unmatched control for end users,” said Mike Everett, general manager for Pro Control. “In bringing this powerful functionality to our ProLink.r, we’re allowing dealers to offer affordable and powerful iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch control for any system utilizing a Pro Control processor. By offering compatibility with both of our control processors, we are breaking through the traditional price barriers for this type of robust, professionally installed system and offering powerful control options for a wide range of budgets.”
The ProPanel app is available now for free, via the iTunes app store. Dealers do need to get a license from their distributor or online from within the Pro Control Studio software to enable communication with the Pro Control system. Also, dealer registration is needed to access the software.
