New iPad app provides control, entertainment

Crestron, maker of touchpanel control units, announces its new Mobile Pro™ G iPad app, which comes with a standard graphic template, and supports user-defined interfaces as well. Features allow users to browse their Blu-ray collection, adjust the lights and check to see who’s at the door while they're walking from the fridge to the home theater. Mobile Pro G provides direct communication to the control system without any third-party software or external servers.
