Vantage Provides Mobile Whole-Home Control With New iPad App

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, September 7, 2011 Vantage, the leader in home automation solutions for luxury homes, is demonstrating its innovative iPad home control application at the CEDIA 2011 Expo in booth # 2617.  Designed specifically for Apple's popular iOS tablet operating system, the Vantage app lets homeowners control lighting, audio, cameras, and home climate remotely, from one of the most popular and user-friendly devices on the market. 

 

“Home control should be easy enough for anyone to operate from anywhere in the home,” said Andrew Wale, Vice President of Marketing for Vantage. “Our new iPad app leverages a highly popular technology that homeowners are already comfortable with, and allows them complete access to the extensive home control functionalities of our InFusion system. Our dealers now have a compelling new offering for their customers that's easily demonstrated and immediately attractive to the end user.” 

 

The Vantage iPad app offers homeowners comprehensive control capabilities over whole-home entertainment, lighting, climate and security devices connected to the Vantage system. The iPad app's support for Wi-Fi and the 3G network, along with the devices’ sleek touchscreens, establish a new paradigm in simplicity for home automation control. Vantage’s iPad app, which is downloadable as a free demo directly from the iTunes app store, connects directly to any Vantage InFusion controller. Once downloaded, users can quickly control the many features of their Vantage system at the touch of a button.

 

The system's extensive audio controls allow complete, convenient management and enjoyment of home audio sources, including Vantage’s audiophile-grade music server, the Digital Music Manager, as well as CDs, tuners, and more. The Vantage iPad app allows users to view and control audio in each home zone, managing power, sync capabilities, music queues, and playlists, as well as volume levels and muting commands.  The app also integrates with the Vantage 1080HD Video Switcher to provide complete control over all video sources in the home.

 

Home security systems are also easily monitored and controlled with Vantage's new iPad application.  Comprehensive camera control allows users to flip views between home security cameras, navigate individual IP cameras, or view all cameras at once, empowering homeowners to observe property activity in real time and from anywhere there's an Internet connection, enhancing estate security and providing peace of mind for travelers.

 

Redefining climate control for Vantage homeowners, the new iPad application allows monitoring both indoor and outdoor temperatures and the control of both heat and air conditioning set points while away from home. Utilizing this tool, users can easily flip between property thermostats and can alternate between temperature and mode controls with true device feedback, making it simple to maintain a consistently perfect temperature and energy savings from anywhere. 

 

Similar to the other application functions, the application's lighting control features lets users control room light sources remotely, using a simple, intuitive "flick" motion as a means for controlling keypads and lighting loads. The application monitors and commands home power sources with an intuitive light bulb graphic that intensifies in color as loads get brighter.

 

The Vantage iPad control application can be seen at the Vantage exhibit at booth # 2617 at CEDIA 2011, held September 8-10 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN.
