Blustream says its new Control App offers installers the ability to configure and deploy a complete multi-room AV control system within minutes.
Chris Tolton, technical manager at Blustream explains: “The Blustream Control App makes delivering multi-room control so easy. We have developed the platform to enable an installer with basic knowledge of control to configure and commission a dedicated control solution for the customer. The only additional hardware you need to complete this is the new £148 Centro 8M processor from DemoPad.
“This pocket-sized processor can be placed at any location within a property and added to the local network. Once on the same network as the matrix you can then easily configure a full multi-room system from within the App, adding the sources and displays required and naming all zones. Once the set-up is complete, you can simply download the project for free to as many iOS devices as required, giving the customer a fully working AV control system within minutes of the installation.”
The CENTRO 8M is essentially the brain of a smart home system and has some strong automation features that are unlocked using the DemoPad designer software including voice control, advanced macro’s, astronomically timed events or turning a SKY or Tivo remote into a fully functional smart home control unit.
