iHomeTouch is New X10 App for Your iPhone – Christmas Tree Control Ensues
iHomeTouch is a new iOS app from 1Jump2 for control of your X10 based home automation system. The software is a universal app for the iPhone and iPad and will also run on the iPod touch. The intuitive interface allows you to use photos of the rooms in your home with the ability to touch certain parts of the screen for control. Check out the video below for an example set-up controlling Christmas Tree lights from an iPhone…
Rooms from Photos – iHomeTouch utilises the iDevices’ camera and Image Library to create Rooms. Rooms can have multiple buttons which are defined by pressing your finger on the screen. That area can be preset to turn on any of your X10 devices.
Mount on your wall – iHomeTouch works in both portrait and landscape orientation, but it’s in landscape, that the app really comes to life in. So much so that, we believe, you’ll want to mount your iPhone/iPod Touch and iPads on the wall as dedicated home automation remote controls.
Touch to Turn On / Off / Dim or Brighten – Simply by touching the photo, you can turn a device on or off and even adjust the brightness.
