Can Apple iPad be used as a Crestron Touchpanel?
Crestron eNews Extra - February 18, 2010

The Apple iPad will revolutionize the home control industry.  Experience the Web, check email, view photos and video, iTunes, iPod and all those apps.  Now you can add 'Control Your Home' to that list.  The iPad becomes the least expensive wireless touchscreen control for Crestron systems.

The hot new Apple (R) iPad is a full 2-way Crestron (R) touchpanel - available the same day it ships from Apple. Immediately take advantage of the free Crestron Mobile™ app (currently available from iTunes (R)) to transform your iPad into a complete home automation touchpanel, or use the Crestron Mobile Pro™ app to turn the iPad into a entirely customized user interface while enjoying the sleek, stylish Apple look, right from day one.

The iPad connects to the Crestron controller via WiFi or 3G network the same way the iPhone (R) or iPod touch (R) does today. Simply add complete Crestron control to any room in the home, or take advantage of the 3G iPad for control anywhere, whether in the car, on vacation or at the office.

Use existing Crestron software tools to create GUI designs and seamlessly integrate with any Crestron control system, including Prodigy®. Use the vast library of free Crestron graphics or produce custom images desired. Browse, select and play songs and movies; control lights and adjust temperature, all from the iPad.

Crestron is committed to offering great solutions for integrating Apple products into the home. Create touchpanel interfaces with XPanel for Mac® to take full Crestron control from any iMac (R) or MacBook (R). Convert your iPod (R) into a Crestron controlled media server using the Crestron Interface for Apple iPod (CEN-IDOCV), Crestron iServer (TM) (CEN-ISERVER) or the Prodigy (R) Interface for Apple iPod (P-IDOCV). Crestron Mobile (TM) lets you use the iPad, as well as iPhone and iPod touch, to take complete control of any system, anywhere.

  Crestron Integrates with many Apple Products.  Come back often to read more articles about the way Crestron and Apple make you entire home easier to use.
