Lutron Adds iPhone App to Control HomeWorks Lighting System
Interface can control scenes in any room by choosing from a list of keypads.
Lutron has unveiled an interface that controls its HomeWorks whole-home lighting system via iPhone or iPod Touch.
Users will have complete control of their HomeWorks keypads no matter where they are. The interface will be able to control scenes in any room by choosing from a list of keypads.
Thus, in order for it to work efficiently, each keypad in the home should be labeled properly.
Lutron has hinted at releasing an iPhone application in the past. The iPhone application can be accessed by touching the Lutron icon that will appear on the iPhone or iPod Touch after download.
The company says its new application can:
- Set the mood for arriving guests
- Save energy by turning off lights that may have been left on
- Control lights, music and ambiance in a home to create a complete entertainment experience
The application will be available as a free download in early January, according to Lutron.
