AMX introduced 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, company officials said.

"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 at Touch Panel Control, in a statement. "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 application provides real-time, touch control of AV systems, lighting, shades, room temperatures and more from smart phones 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 WiFi or 3G/4G networks.

"Our approach remains to give our customers the solutions they want for simple, universal access to their home control system through all their devices," said AMX chief technology officer Robert Noble, in a statement.

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. For more information, go to www.amx.com/products/TPControl.asp.
