mControl added support of CentraLite JetStream

mControl and JetStream

mControl, well known Windows-based home control system, recently announced supporting of CentraLite JetStream devices. CentraLite JetStream uses Z-Wave competitor ZigBee. The system is fully expandable and can be integrated with other automation products such as thermostats, entertainment systems, and security equipment.

Actually JetStream functionality was added some time ago. But wasn’t announced till devices weren’t started to sell on the market. To see mControl and JetStream in the action see that video presentation.

mControl already support Insteon, Z-Wave, Rako, and X10. So, CentraLite JetStream will be good addition to that list.

iPhone and iPod Touch are very popular in smarthome vendors day by day. Now Embedded Automation is going to release a new version (v2.1) its home automation system mControl. And it seems that one of new features that version will be providing UI to use iPhone/iPod Touch as control panel.

Unfortunately, there is no any detailed information. But it should be available next week. So, stay tune!
