- Industry's first smartphone app & interface enables control of WallWizard motorized flat-panel TV mounts from Apple devices - Users can toggle between Auto, Manual and Gyro Modes to set position - Accessory offered at $149
City of Industry, CA - June 20, 2011 - CLO Systems, innovators of affordable automated flat -panel TV mounts, have delivered another Industry first for the Company's WallWizard brand. Available now and offered at a suggested consumer selling price of $149, ControlWand is the consumer electronics industry's first -ever software application that facilitates remote control operation of WallWizard motorized mounts from Apple iPad, iPod and iPhone via Wi -Fi. Android Bluetooth device compatibility is soon to follow, further solidifying the WallWizard ControlWand Control System as the most unique TV mount control option on the market.
"The WallWizard ControlWand graphic user interface (GUI) is intuitively organized and utilizes a remote control design that both Apple and smartphone users will feel right at home using from the start," says WallWizard VP of sales and marketing Craig Matthews. "ControlWand's advanced functionality and affordability significantly raises the bar in making television mount control a much more convenient and interactive experience."
WallWizard's smartphone -enabled ControlWand Control System is a two -piece solution that consists of a proprietary ControlWand App available through App stores, and a Wi -Fi USB Control Module that is available from WallWizard dealers. According to Matthews, WallWizard is again the first and only TV mount brand to offer such an innovation.
ControlWand allows the user to toggle among Auto, Manual and Gyro Modes, in order to set the viewing angle of the TV to the user's preferred location.
In Auto Mode, the mount can detect whether the TV is ON, tilting the mount into its ideal viewing angle and back "home" again when powered OFF. Manual Mode provides users the ability to control the motion of the mount by pressing on the appropriate directional arrow on the remote, setting it to the desired position where it will remain until the next adjustment.
For a unique experience, users can implement Gyro Mode, where the motion of the motorized mount reacts accordingly with the motion of the handheld smartphone device by utilizing the internal accelerometer, without any additional button pushing.
Compatible with the WallWizard TA55 medium/large tilt and SA52 medium/large swivel motorized mounts, which contain a proprietary USB port for connectivity with the control system's USB Module, ControlWand is now available for purchase through authorized WallWizard dealers worldwide.
