Why Automate Your Home?
How about convenience, security, and energy savings.
Why walk into a dark home when your exterior and interior lights can automatically come on when you press your remote garage door opener? Why come into a hot or cold home when you can enjoy the comfort of your home anticipating your arrival and adjusting the temperature to suit you… just before you arrive?
Automate your home is about the convenience of saving your time and effort by having your home automatically do routine functions such as watering your grass (but only if it has not rained recently), or turning off all lights, setting the thermostat to economy mode and arming the security system when you retire for the night.
It’s about enjoying home theater time by having the lights dim, curtains close, TV and DVD player turn on, phone mute and popcorn popper start… all with the touch of just one button.
Automate your home is about the security you have knowing that you can look in on your home remotely from anywhere in the world, or that your home will phone you if anything is amiss, or that a fire will alert your home to wake you, shut down the gas and ventilation system, turn on a lighting path for your escape, and automatically phone the fire department.
Automate your home is about the energy savings you will enjoy by assigning your home the responsibility of regulating the operation of lights, water heater, HVAC system, entertainment components, appliances and irrigation system so these devices are on only when needed. The benefits of an automated home are only limited by your imagination.

HOME AUTOMATION ON YOUR NEW iPAD TOUCH!
ControlFX allows your iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad® to become a state-of-the-art home remote controller. Together with a required control system this app allows complete control over your AV, lighting, heating and security systems that are IR, RS232 or Ethernet controlled devices.
Using the iGuiFX configuration software that can be downloaded Free, a unique interface can be designed with buttons, sliders and other components that in turn are linked to commands that will not only amaze your friends and family but also provide a system that you will never want to be without.
Control your TV, SKY+ (HD), Blu-ray DVD, AV Receiver and more anywhere in the home. Setup macros so you can have TV channel icons to switch direct to that channel. Receive information from compatible products (like Volume level from an AV amplifier)
This application with the associated configuration software is a specialized application with huge possibilities for controlling an infinite range of devices. It does, however, require an additional system controller from companies such as Global Cache. It also requires an understanding of IR, RS232 and TCP/IP to achieve its full potential.
