Detroit, MI July 22, 2015 - On Controls (www.oncontrols.com), a leader in cloud-based smart home and commercial control solutions for professional installers, has announced today the introduction of their 4.2 software revision that includes many exciting new features and overall operational enhancements. Users can update their On Controls iOS app from the Apple Store and Android app from Google Play free of charge.

"Our latest software delivers exciting functionality along with intuitive graphics, further differentiating the cloud-enabled On Controls solution from conventional control and automation platforms," stated Itai Ben-Gal, CEO of On Controls. "This release addresses market demand for fast and reliable two-way control of Apple TV along with stunning new graphics, creating tremendous opportunity for our growing network of integrators around the world," Ben-Gal added.


The new On Controls Apple TV module for iOS devices delivers fast and reliable IP-based two-way control of Apple TV from the On Controls platform using an intuitive gesture pad or traditional button-style interface. This new functionality enables users to browse and control iTunes content such as movies, TV shows, Netflix, Vimeo, photos and more. Users will enjoy the luxury and convenience of detailed meta-data for music and movies such as cover art and artist/title/track information easily visible from any iOS device.


Enhance the On Controls user experience by controlling lighting, audio/video equipment and other IP or serial-based smart devices with the new device slider graphic interface. The device slider is a faster, more precise method of controlling components that have discreet levels, such as a volume knob or lighting control. Add speed, reliability and convenience using the new On Controls device slider.


On Controls continues to enhance the user experience, and with our latest release, users now have the ability to remove the top and bottom navigation bars native to their phone or tablet, creating a more full-screen, or "immersive" experience within the control environment.


On Controls has added additional functionality to our Vera module with the addition of horizontal and vertical control capability for applicable shades, blinds and drape elements.


On Controls has developed a sophisticated, highly intuitive graphic template designed to enhance the control experience as part of the 4.2 software revision. Introducing Se7en, a new and impressive way to control smart devices offered exclusively to On Controls users. Designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind, the Se7en GUI offers a completely new look and feel for the modern age with uncluttered controls and an array of gorgeous, customizable screen backgrounds and drawer colors.
