Control Your Crestron System from Any Android Mobile Device

Rockleigh, NJ, October 11, 2011 - Crestron today announced that the new Mobile Pro Control App for Android™ is now available on the Android™ Market. Mobile Pro turns any Android device into a fully functional Crestron touch screen, allowing homeowners to control lighting, thermostats, entertainment, security systems and other connected systems from anywhere, anytime.

"Whether you have an iPhone®, iPad® or Android mobile device, there's a Crestron control solution for you," said Crestron VP of Technology, Fred Bargetzi. "We're fanatical about keeping our customers on the cutting edge by offering a variety of solutions that bring the latest, most popular home technology into their lives. Our new Android App is just the latest example of that commitment. We don't make you choose, we make it easy."
Mobile Pro displays real -time status of room temperatures, shade positions, lighting levels and metadata including cover art, song and artist. You can even view streaming video from web -based security cameras right on your mobile device. Using the home Wi -Fi® network locally or powerful cellular networks remotely, a virtual Crestron touch screen is always in the palm of your hand no matter where you are.
Crestron provides cross -platform flexibility for the entire family. "Mom can have the same control interface and functionality on her iPad that Dad has with his Samsung Galaxy," Bargetzi says. "You can switch carriers or get a new mobile device without calling in a programmer to reprogram the system. Just connect your new device, and you're ready to go…you have the freedom to choose whatever device you want."
Crestron provides the infrastructure that is the foundation for home control, while providing an open platform for development that supports PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android. The popular R2 Control for Crestron app, created by id8 Group, was the pioneer in providing the first Android solution for Crestron and is available for download from the Android Market.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
