Capitol now offers Simple Control and Simple System app to its network of CI dealers throughout the U.S.
“As the phenomenal rise of ‘smart devices’ shows no sign of letting up, end-users are anxious to tie their A/V and home control devices together into convenient, easy-to-control packages that negate the need for a collection of remote controls,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president and CFO. “Simple Control’s app offers an appealing solution for consumers who prefer to control their equipment from their smartphones and tablets.”
The Simple Control and Simple System app operates thousands of devices like TVs, cable and satellite boxes, receivers, Blu-ray players, lights, switches, thermostats and more. The system integrates interactive second-screen media guides and allows control from a smartphone or tablet. Simple Control also offers a Simple Blaster for control of IR-based devices and a Simple Hub for the system’s many features. Simple Control communicates with A/V devices over a Wi-Fi network.
“One lesson we took away from CES is that the Connected Home is poised for its biggest year yet, making solutions such as Simple Control critical for even the most technophobic end-users,” said Hayes. “Its intuitive interface is as fool-proof as you can get.”
