Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI) says it is developing an RTiPanel app for use on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, that will be available from the Apple Store in Q4 of this year.

The RTiPanel app will allow an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to control an XP series remote processor. Multiple licensing options for controlling the XP-8, XP-6, and XP-3 include LAN licensing for local RTI system control, and internet licensing for system control from virtually anywhere, the company says. Pricing for the licensing options will be announced when the app is released.

"The iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are amazing, revolutionary devices that have redefined what is possible on the go. Not surprisingly, one of our most popular integration solutions has been our support for an assortment of third-party iPod docks. We are very excited to take this integration to the next level and bring the power of our control solutions to mobile devices with our RTiPanel app," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "Now RTI XP series users will be able to control and receive feedback from all of their systems, wherever they are, using a device they already own. Add to this the customization of the interface which is made possible through our Integration Designer software and you've got an incredibly powerful control solution for remotely accessing your system."
RTiPanel offers configuration and customization through RTI's Integration Designer software. This will enable integrators to apply a style to the Apple interface that is similar to that of an RTI handheld or in-wall controller.
