SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- Jan. 24, 2013 -- Pro Control, a division of Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), announced that the company's popular ProPanel control app for the iPad(R), iPhone(R), and iPod touch(R) is now available for the ProLink.r control processor. The powerful ProPanel app provides users with convenient system control of the home environment. Already available for the ProLink.z, and now available for the ProLink.r, the ProPanel app will integrate either ProLink processor with Apple(R) devices to control A/V systems, lights, music servers, shades, internet radio, door locks, and more.


"The ProPanel app has become a very popular complementary solution to our product line-up, offering programming simplicity for dealers, and unmatched control for end users," said Mike Everett, general manager for Pro Control. "In bringing this powerful functionality to our ProLink.r, we're allowing dealers to offer affordable and powerful iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch control for any system utilizing a Pro Control processor. By offering compatibility with both of our control processors, we are breaking through the traditional price barriers for this type of robust, professionally installed system and offering powerful control options for a wide range of budgets."

ProPanel stands out from the pack of control apps by enhancing the control experience for end users with unique capabilities at affordable prices. Featuring high-resolution graphics for the newest generation of iPad, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by rotating the iPad or iPad mini and requires no additional programming. ProPanel supports local connection through Wi-Fi(TM) LAN control via the ProLink.r, and the ProLink.z offers remote-access capabilities via auto-switching Wi-Fi and 3G wireless -- providing users with convenient control and monitoring capabilities from virtually anywhere in the world.

The ProPanel app's auto-programming feature provides exceptionally efficient set up. Dealers can completely customize the graphical user interface (GUI) via Pro Control Studio(R) software to provide their customers with a personalized and unique control experience. In addition, preprogrammed templates allow for an efficiently programmed user experience across all Pro24 remote controllers in their systems. For simple interface updating, all graphics are stored conveniently on the ProLink processor, the Apple device, and the cloud.

The Free ProPanel app is available now for download from the Apple iTunes(R) App Store(SM). Dealers will need to purchase licenses from their distributor or online from within the Pro Control Studio software to enable communication with their Pro Control system.

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.
