Key Digital of Mount Vernon says it has developed its first comprehensive control
system called Compass Control.
Compass Control represents the first fully integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple's iOS 5 devices -- iPad, iPhone and iPod touch -- as its backbone, according to Key Digital.
Key Digital in conjunction with Compass Control's Compass Alliance
Partners (CAP) has created a fully integrated control system with
driver support for hardware from the following brands: Aprilaire,
Boston Acoustics(R), ClearOne(R), Denon, Furman, ICRealtime Security
Solutions(R), iPort(R), Key Digital, LG, Lutron(R), Luxul, Marantz(R),
MechoSystems, Onkyo(R), Panamax, Primeview, Russound(R), SurgeX, and
Wolfvision(R). Combining the knowledge and expertise from the different
CAP brands has allowed Compass Control(R) to develop into a complete
turnkey residential or commercial control solution.
Compass Control has the ability to control devices via RS-232, IR,
or via TCP/IP. This new control system provides installers with
bi-directional IR, two-way RS-232 with feedback, and two-way TCP/IP
control for unlimited flexibility and maximum compatibility with new or
existing devices. Compass Control also provides control via relays
and sensors demonstrating its nature as a powerful integration tool.
When programming the system via the Compass Navigator(R) PC editor
software, installers are given three separate database managers to make
programming faster than traditional control systems. Compass
Navigator also enables installers to edit command code sets which
allows Compass Control to be tailored to each system
Key Digital Vice-President for Sales, Michael Lakhter, commented on
Compass Control's readiness to take on market challenges, "With the
combined efforts of all of our Compass Alliance Partners, Compass
Control(R) represents the culmination of our efforts to create the most
powerful, most user-friendly, and most comprehensive control system
available on the market today." Key Digital describes itself as being at the forefront of the video industry for Home Theater Retailers, Custom Installers, System Integrators, Broadcasters, Manufacturers, and Consumers. They provide total video system solutions for unique applications.
