Lantic Systems tries to bring its wide yacht automation experience in the smarthome area. The whole details are unknown. But at least we’ll be able to use a fantastic round remote control. It has just eight buttons plus 5 from the navigation pad. But using them it allows to users navigate through on-screen menus for entertainment, automation, surveillance, photos, and other options typical of higher-end control systems. The remote uses RF instead of IR. So, the commands can go through walls.
The similar approach was offered by Savant Systems for its Rosie automation and entertainment system. But Lantic’s remote seems more handy. In any case, it cannot be used as standalone remote. To use it you should by a whole home automation system from Lantic.
