Attendees to this year's Macworld/iWorld will experience the latest products compatible with Apple devices, including the Crestron Mobile Pro app for the iPad and iPhone live during the show.
Under the slogan “Control Everything - All From One App,” Crestron will offer hands-on demonstrations of Mobile Pro, using simulated home, boardroom, classroom, and yacht environments, to control entertainment systems, lighting, shades, audio/video, heating/cooling, and security systems.
The Crestron app will be on display in the Appalooza Showcase, one of the most popular areas of the show floor. The pavilion features developers showcasing hundreds of the latest creations for everything from productivity, lifestyle, gaming and IT to education, music making, and photography, all built for the iPad, iPhone and MacBook.
“The mobile device has become the one piece of technology everyone has, and it can do almost anything,” said Sean Goldstein, Crestron vice president of marketing. “Our mobile app enables complete control over the home and workplace. With one app, consumers can control everything, all from their iPhone or iPad anytime, anywhere.”
The Crestron Mobile Pro app eliminates the hassle of switching back and forth between a dozen apps to control everything in the home, office, classroom, or yacht, according to the company.
Crestron will also host a press conference and lunch on Thursday, January 31 at noon. The press conference will focus on avoiding “The Multiple App Trap” — a look at the evolution of technology and prevalence of mobile apps. Unlike other device apps that are developed, installed and run independently, Crestron Mobile Pro integrates control of all systems and devices in one app.
Macworld/iWorld will take place January 31 to February 2, 2013, at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco.
