Key Digital Releases Compass Control®: The first fully integrated control system to use Apple’s iOS 5 devices

May 11, 2012

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y., May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Key Digital Systems, Inc. — The Experts in Digital Video Technology and Solutions is excited to reveal that it has developed its first comprehensive control system called Compass Control®. Compass Control® represents the first fully integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple’s iOS 5 devices — iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® — as its backbone.

Key Digital® in conjunction with Compass Control’s Compass Alliance Partners (CAP) has created a fully integrated control system with driver support for hardware from the following brands: Aprilaire, Boston Acoustics®, ClearOne®, Denon, Furman, ICRealtime Security Solutions®, iPort®, Key Digital, LG, Lutron®, Luxul, Marantz®, MechoSystems, Onkyo®, Panamax, Primeview, Russound®, SurgeX, and Wolfvision®. Combining the knowledge and expertise from the different CAP brands has allowed Compass Control® to develop into a complete turnkey residential or commercial control solution.

Compass Control® has the ability to control devices via RS-232, IR, or via TCP/IP. This new control system provides installers with bi-directional IR, two-way RS-232 with feedback, and two-way TCP/IP control for unlimited flexibility and maximum compatibility with new or existing devices. Compass Control® also provides control via relays and sensors demonstrating its nature as a powerful integration tool. When programming the system via the Compass Navigator® PC editor software, installers are given three separate database managers to make programming faster than traditional control systems. Compass Navigator® also enables installers to edit command code sets which allows Compass Control® to be tailored to each and every system installation.

Key Digital Vice-President for Sales, Michael Lakhter, commented on Compass Control’s readiness to take on market challenges, “With the combined efforts of all of our Compass Alliance Partners, Compass Control® represents the culmination of our efforts to create the most powerful, most user-friendly, and most comprehensive control system available on the market today.”
