The Wildly Successful TPControl Application Which Enables iPhone and iPad Control Of AMX Systems Now Available for Android

RICHARDSON, Texas - April 21, 2011 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the immediate availability of an Android application for AMX control systems. The application, developed by AMX Authorized Product Partner (APP) Touch Panel Control Ltd., transforms an Android mobile device into a fully functional touch panel for controlling AMX system platforms.
"With the projected growth of Android powered devices this year we felt it was important to give users choice over their hardware," said Ben Flux, Operations Director, Touch Panel Control. "With this in mind we are proud to announce the release of TPControl for Android and with it the ability to control your AMX system from the Android platform."
The easy-to-use application provides real-time, touch control of AV systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more from smartphones running the Android operating system. As with the TPControl app for Apple devices, the new version lets Android users seamlessly communicate with an AMX control system via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G networks for the convenience of remote use.
"AMX continues to lead the way in the control industry championing technologies that simplify integration and expand automation technology access," commented AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "Our approach remains to give our customers the solutions they want for simple, universal access to their home control system through all their devices; this new application further demonstrates this commitment."
The TPControl application is now available on the Android Market and the Apple App Store. There is a free, fully functional 21-day trial download available
