Vantage Extends Home Automation Control to iPhone®

Vantage, one of the leaders in home automation solutions for luxury homes, announces the release of the new Vantage iPhone® and iPad® application. The new app enables homeowners to control lighting, audio, cameras, and home climate remotely.

The combination of iPhone® and iPad® support for Wi -Fi and the 3G network, along with the devices' sleek touchscreens, make both popular platforms for home automation control. Vantage's application, 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 many features of their Vantage system at the touch of a button including music, cameras, climate, shades, video, security and lighting control.

Utilizing its comprehensive Audio Control capabilities, homeowners can fully manage and flip between home audio sources, including Vantage's Digital Music Manager (an audiophile -grade music server that stores music collections, automatically seeks out all of the digital music in a home's network and enables the homeowner to play and control it easily from one interface), CDs, tuners, and more.
The application allows users to view and control audio in each home zone, managing power, synching capabilities, music queues, and playlists, as well as volume levels and muting commands.

"Home control should be easy and intuitive." "This means enabling homeowners to leverage pre -existing devices that are already integral to their lifestyles. The iPhone® and iPad® are everywhere. Our customers are thrilled that we've extended the utility of these platforms to control whole -home functions."

Comprehensive Camera Control is another feature of the new application. It allows users to flip between cameras, navigate individual IP cameras, or view all cameras at once, empowering homeowners to observe property activity in real time and from a distance, enhancing estate security and providing peace of mind for travelers. This Camera Control application is identical to the available applications on the existing Vantage in -wall touchscreens. This is also valid for all Vantage applications available on the applet for iPad®.

Redefining Climate Control for Vantage homeowners, the mobility afforded by the application allows them to monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures and control 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 control with LED feedback, making it simple to maintain a consistently perfect temperature.

Similar to the other application functions, the Lighting Control feature manages room light sources remotely and uses a flick motion as a means for controlling keypads and lighting loads. It monitors and commands power sources with a light bulb graphic that intensifies in color as loads get brighter.
Next -generation luxury, available now
"For years homeowners have been able to program thermostats to regular intervals; what is revolutionary is the ability to adjust home temperatures remotely as the weather outside changes," "Luxury living means satisfying whims instantaneously to realize and maintain ideal comfort levels from any location, at once. Vantage has made it simple for homeowners to dim lights, change temperatures, manage music, and more from their iPhones, a resource that is nearly always on their person. This is next -generation luxury, available now."
