Home Automation, Inc. (HAI) HTX2 stand alone remote app
With the newly released HTX2 Apple iOS app from HAI, custom installers can offer their client an Apple-based solution that controls their Blu-ray disc players, A/V receivers, cable/satellite boxes, projectors, televisions and other components.
Apple’s impact on the consumer electronics industry cannot be underestimated. The company has redefined how people listen to music, how they surf the Internet and email, and how they interact with the electronics equipment. The iPad enables people to do so many things that were unheard of just a few years ago it’s now easy to take this product line for granted, but when new products hit the market like Home Automation, Inc.‘s (HAI) HTX2 app, it serves as a reminder how easy it is for electronics manufacturers to harness the power of Apple’s iOS devices for specific purposes.
The HTX2 is available in the iTunes App Store and it enables professional electronics installers to set up A/V and control systems that include streamlined user interfaces that utilize the allure and functionality of Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch products. HAI supports the app with interface templates and its Mobile Designer software that can be used for the creation and customization of GUI remote pages to control Blu-ray players, HDTVs, A/V receivers, preamp/processors, projectors, whole-house A/V controllers and cable/satellite boxes.
HAI points out that when the app is combined with the HTX2 installers can set up control through the use of serial ports, IR ports, IP and SPDT relays, and the HTX2 also comes with more than 300,000 codes built in.
