Key Digital Releases Compass Control(R): The First Fully Integrated Control System to Use Apple's iOS 5 Devices - CEDIA Expo 2012

When programming the system via the Compass Navigator(R) PC editor software, installers are given three separate database managers to make programming faster than traditional control systems.

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y., July 18, 2012 -- Key Digital is excited

to reveal that it has developed its first comprehensive control system
called Compass Control(R). Compass Control(R) represents the first fully
integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple's iOS
5 devices -- iPad(R), iPhone(R), and iPod touch(R) -- as its backbone.

Key Digital(R) in conjunction with Compass Control's Compass Alliance
Partners (CAP) has created a fully integrated control system with driver
support for hardware from the following brands: Aprilaire, Boston
Acoustics(R), ClearOne(R), Denon, Furman, ICRealtime Security Solutions(R),
iPort(R), Key Digital, LG, Lutron(R), Luxul, Marantz(R), MechoSystems,
Onkyo(R), Panamax, Primeview, Russound(R), SurgeX, and Wolfvision(R).
Combining the knowledge and expertise from the different CAP brands has
allowed Compass Control(R) to develop into a complete turnkey residential or
commercial control solution.

Compass Control(R) has the ability to control devices via RS-232, IR, or via
TCP/IP. This new control system provides installers with bi-directional IR,
two-way RS-232 with feedback, and two-way TCP/IP control for unlimited
flexibility and maximum compatibility with new or existing devices. Compass
Control(R) also provides control via relays and sensors demonstrating its
nature as a powerful integration tool.
When programming the system via the Compass Navigator(R) PC editor software,
installers are given three separate database managers to make programming
faster than traditional control systems. Compass
Navigator(R) also enables installers to edit command code sets which allows
Compass Control(R) to be tailored to each and every system installation.

Key Digital Vice-President for Sales, Michael Lakhter, commented on Compass
Control's readiness to take on market challenges, "With the combined efforts
of all of our Compass Alliance Partners, Compass
Control(R) represents the culmination of our efforts to create the most
powerful, most user-friendly, and most comprehensive control system
available on the market today."
