14 Interesting home control applications for iPhone


iPhone becomes more and more popular in the home control industry. Here is a list of the most popular or fresh applications for Apple’s gadget which can help consumers to manage their houses more efficient:

  • AirRemote – turns iPhone into smart remote control. It uses WiFi to send commands and needs GC100 to transmit them to IR.
  • ILoveControl is another universal remote control implementation for iPhone. But it allows to control not A/V equipment but all devices added in the Crestron, AMX, Control4, Lifeware, Lutron or NetStreams.
  • iPhone interface to control Lagotek smarthome systems
  • iPhone interface for SpeakerCraft music systems is web-based but extremely expensive – $1000 for pre-configured device and ERS 1.0 Ethernet-to-serial adapter run web server!
  • Savant Systems iPhone Interface provides a full control for its systems.
  • NetLinc Insteon Central Controller includes an iPhone interface to control INSTEON devices connected to that controller.

      CommandFusion iViewer is another iPhone app for home automation control that will be available soon. It also can control any software or hardware capable of TCP Socket communications, with a little programming of course – thanks to the simple protocol iViewer uses.

      It also allows for a fully custom UI using the CommandFusion guiDesigner software.

      Check it all out at http://www.commandfusion.com and coming soon to the AppStore.

    Cool. It’d might be used in LinuxMCE because it’s TCP/IP based system. Will see that project.

    CommandFusion iViewer is out in the AppStore now, free download.

    Just program it into your home automation system, design a sweet GUI using the guiDesigner software, and your set!
