TPControl turns iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch into AMX control panel

TPControl for iPhone

Looks like we have a competitor of iRidium mobile software for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. TPControl also allows to use Apple devices as full-featured touchscreen control panel for AMX home automation systems. It supports TP4 file natively and offers all functions of original control panel via WiFi or 3G connection. Additionally TPControl is authorized product partner of AMX.

I didn’t find the price of the TPControl software because as I understand it’s available via dealers only. The demo version of the software can be downloaded from AppStore and server part – from the producer site.

The server part is a disadvantage of TPControl comparing it with iRidium mobile. Because iRidium doesn’t need anything on the server side. Moreover, iRidium can be adjusted to use it with other IP-based home automation and entertainment systems.

      It doesn't have a server component, it just has a desktop app to transfer templates on to it – same as iridium. It does seem however to have more features and be approved/supported by AMX.

    Thanks, Michael, for your comment. So, TPControl works directly with AMX controller, right?

    Dear Partners,

    Let me kindly inform you that there are a couple important points which make TPC and iRidium different:

    1. The iRidium price is 160$ per an AMX license and the TPC prices are from 500$ up to 800$ for the same license (and only for dealers!) ;

    2. iRidium is not limited by the TP4 capabilities and will have New Advanced Features (which AMX doesn't have) in the nearest future.

    Yours iRidium mobile…

    Thanks for clarifications. You just confirmed my opinion that iRidium offers more features and flexibility then TPControl and it's much cheaper.
