Vantage has released a native iPhone and iPad app that enables homeowners to control lighting, audio, cameras, and home climate remotely.
Vantage’s application connects directly to any Vantage InFusion controller. Utilizing its audio control capabilities, homeowners can flip between home audio sources, including Vantage’s Digital Music Manager, CDs, and tuners. The application allows users to view and control audio in each home zone–managing power, synching capabilities, music queues, and playlists, as well as volume levels and muting commands.
“Home control should be easy and intuitive,” said Andrew Wale, VP of marketing for Vantage. “This means enabling homeowners to leverage pre-existing devices that are already integral to their lifestyles. The iPhone and iPad are everywhere. Our customers are thrilled that we’ve extended the utility of these platforms to control whole-home functions.”
Comprehensive Camera Control is another feature of the new application. It allows users to flip between cameras, navigate individual IP cameras, or view all cameras at once, empowering homeowners to observe property activity in real time and from a distance, enhancing estate security and providing peace of mind for travelers.
Redefining Climate Control for Vantage homeowners, the mobility afforded by the application allows them to monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures and control heat and air conditioning set points while away from home. Utilizing this tool, users can easily flip between property thermostats and can alternate between temperature and mode control with LED feedback, making it simple to maintain a consistently perfect temperature.
Similar to the other application functions, the Lighting Control feature manages room light sources remotely and uses a flick motion as a means for controlling keypads and lighting loads. It monitors and commands power sources with a light bulb graphic that intensifies in color as loads get brighter.
For years homeowners have been able to program thermostats to regular intervals; what is revolutionary, is the ability to adjust home temperatures remotely as the weather outside changes,” Wale said. “Luxury living means satisfying whims instantaneously to realize and maintain ideal comfort levels from any location, at once. Vantage has made it simple for homeowners to dim lights, change temperatures, manage music, and more from their iPhones, a resource that is nearly always on their person. This is next-generation luxury, available now.”
