For people who are big fans of Apple, those who are information sensitive and spend many hours on the Internet, I’m pretty sure they’ve heard about Apple Inc’s new brainchild. iPad is a touch-screen computer that falls between a laptop and a smart-phone. I still remember how popular this topic was after (even before) Steve Jobs unveiled what he claimed was a “truly magical product” on the night of January 27 at Yerba Buena Center, in San Francisco. iPad sales reached one million in 28 days after the device’s release in March.
Similar to iPhone, there are a myriad of applications and widgets available to download from iTunes App Store for use on the iPad whether it is for entertainment, education, working, news, social network etc. Application developers continuously send out either free or paid applications to serve users’ higher requirements in many aspects and purposes, no exception being Home Automation Technology.
One of the leading companies in Home Automation, ‘Crestron’ who have already released an iPhone app, had no hesitation to follow the trend, also launching its application that is compatible with iPad. ‘The Crestron Mobile Pro G’ app allows users to use the iPad as a media or home automation touch-panel. With Wi-Fi, 3G and Edge networks, iPad users will be able to interact with their Crestron systems networks to take control of the lighting and appliances, shades, room temperatures, AV systems, security systems, irrigation systems, net cameras at home while they are on the go. The application supports many different control interfaces.
Crestron Mobile Pro G provides a professional-looking touch-panel user interface that fits on the iPad screen.
