Home Control, Through the iPhone
SpeakerCraft announced this week the release of a new interface, meant to work with its MODE multi-room control system, that allows the use of Apple’s popular iPhone and iPod Touch products to be used as wireless remotes.
The system, run through a Web server in the ERS 1.0 Ethernet to serial adapter, can be accessed through the Safari browser on the Apple devices, and requires no installations of applications.
“The connection is very easy to set up and there is little or no additional programming required by the installer,” the company’s director of engineering, Jason Craze, said as part of the announcement. “A person can literally walk through the front door, press a single virtual button on the iPhone touch screen and have access to all of their system’s control functions.”
