SmartHub is a complete home automation system, connecting an iPad with two technologies – an infrared controller, so that the iPad could be used as a universal remote; and a radio wave controller, which allows the user to control wall sockets and lights.
The app pairs with Global Cache’s iTach Flex, and the Lightwave RF hub, which gives users the power to control devices around their homes. Hotspots can be built into easily navigable pages (with either a grid layout, or custom sized hotspots over an image of the user’s own home), with actions built into each hotspot. With a single tap on a hotspot, a user can turn on their television, and with another hotspot they can control it; changing the channel or volume. Any device that can be plugged into a socket can be turned on or off, and any device which picks up infrared signals can be entirely controlled.
Users can record multiple infrared commands into a single action control, so that users can perform an action which would require multiple remote control button hits with a single tap on an iPad. Weather, email, facebook, twitter APIs are all built in to give users further access outside of their homes too.
The app has inbuilt switch access and works with iOS switch control in point mode.
