RTI's RTiPanel App for iPhoneŽ and iPadŽ Now Available; Named a CEDIA Manufacturers' Excellence Awards Best New Product Finalist
App Provides Complete Control Over RTI's XP Series Processors and Connected Devices; Raises the Bar With Full Two-Way Feedback and Completely Customizable User Interface
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Aug. 8, 2011 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company's highly anticipated RTiPanel app for the iPhone®, iPod® touch, and iPad® is now available for RTI dealers and their clients. Boasting unique features such as two-way feedback, a customizable user interface, and highly optimized connection speeds, the app provides complete control over any RTI control system with an XP series control processor — all from the convenience of a smart phone or tablet.
Raising the bar for control apps, the RTiPanel stands out from the pack with unique features such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather graphics, dynamic image lists, and much more for an unprecedented control experience. The app supports connection locally via Wi-Fi and offers remote access via auto-switching Wi-Fi and 3G wireless — allowing for control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world.
The RTiPanel app offers a completely customizable graphical user interface, allowing integrators to provide consumers with a consistent user experience across all RTI controllers in their systems, including their Apple® devices, as well as offer a unique interface designed to set their devices apart. For simple interface updating either locally or remotely, all graphics are conveniently stored on the XP series processor and the Apple® device. And better yet, the app is programmed using the same Integration Designer® software that is used to program all RTI products.
Redefining ease of use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by simply rotating the Apple device. The programming process for supporting both orientations has been carefully designed to minimize the extra effort required.
"The RTiPanel app is one of our most anticipated product releases ever, and we are very excited to say that it is now available. We are tremendously proud of the hard work and innovation that have gone into this app, and to bring our dealers a solution that is superior to anything else on the market," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "From full two-way control to a completely customizable user interface, every detail of the RTiPanel has been designed to complement our control systems perfectly, allowing our dealers to provide an unprecedented control experience for their customers, at home or away."
The RTiPanel app is now available for download from the Apple App Store. Users will need to purchase licenses online from the RTI website to enable communication with their RTI control system.
The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) has named the RTiPanel a finalist in its Manufacturers' Excellence Awards competition for Best New Product. The winners will be announced at the Electronic Lifestyles® Awards Banquet Sat., Sept. 10 during CEDIA EXPO 2011.
