Crestron Enable Systems and Device Control From the Apple® IPAD

Crestron Mobile Apps Turn the Apple® iPad into a Crestron Touchpanel

ROCKLEIGH, NJ - Crestron today announced that a simple download from the iTunes® App Store transforms the Apple® iPad into a full Crestron touchpanel. A tap on the Apple tablet screen provides real -time control of Crestron AV systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more, from any location. Just like the iPhone® and iPod touch®, the iPad seamlessly communicates with a Crestron control system via the 3G, 3GS or EDGE cellular networks or Wi -Fi.


"Crestron is committed to offering great solutions for integrating Apple products into the home, school and office," said 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."

Other Apple -based Crestron solutions include the iServer, which is the only audio server on the market that uses an iPod as its internal hard drive, and has won multiple awards for its innovative design and ease of use. Crestron XPanel for Mac® delivers remote access and control of Crestron systems from any connected iMac® or MacBook®, and Crestron iPod docks provide all the connectivity needed to share audio and video throughout an entire home or office AV system.
