RICHARDSON, TX--AMX has designated mobile software development company, Touch Panel Control Ltd., as an AMX Authorized Product Partner (AMX APP). The agreement speeds and supports the launch of Touch Panel Control’s iPhone application that enables an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to transform into a fully functional touch panel for controlling AMX system platforms.
The easy-to-use application provides real-time, touch control of AV systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more, from iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads. As with the iPhone and other smart devices, the iPad can seamlessly communicate with an AMX control system via 3G, GPRS and EDGE cellular networks, or Wi-Fi, to allow the convenience of remote use.
The TPControl application, soon available as a 10-day trial free download from the Apple App Store, connects as a native AMX device to an AMX NetLinx Master allowing ease of integration.
“It has been an AMX tradition to champion technologies that simplify integration and expand automation technology awareness and access,” commented Robert Noble, AMX, chief technology officer. ” This partnership demonstrates our commitment to provide open, flexible, and scalable solutions for our dealers and end users.”
"It is with great pleasure that Touch Panel Control has joined with AMX to provide a next-generation mobile interface solution,” said Michael Edwards, Touch Panel Control, managing director. “We look forward to providing AMX control system integrators with essential tools to leverage to their competitive advantage."
TouchPanelControl.com is the first company to participate in the AMX Authorized Product Partner program. Moving forward, Touch Panel Control will be developing and selling applications to enable iPhone, iPad, and other devices to be utilized for accessing AMX control systems.
