Pro Control at ISE 2015:

New Two-Way Drivers

At ISE 2015, Pro Control will highlight the latest additions to its lineup of drivers that offer simple, efficient two-way programming in a drag-and-drop environment via the Pro Control Studio(R) programming software. These include a new Sonos(R) driver, which simplifies the control and feedback of Sonos audio components -- providing integrators and end users with an incredibly powerful solution for selecting songs, storing favorites, and adjusting audio settings on up to 16 media players. In addition, Pro Control also works with Nest(R) thermostats and Nest Protect, allowing full control and feedback over the popular devices. New drivers for Anthem(R) receivers, Sony(R) projectors, JVC projectors, Epson(R) projectors, and Wirepath(TM) IP cameras are also now available.

Pro.rfz Wireless Range Extender

Pro Control's Pro.rfz wireless range extender dramatically extends the wireless communication range between a Pro24.z remote control and ProLink.z processor. Perfect for large-scale installations, the Pro.rfz makes it simple and cost effective to bolster 2.4 GHz ZigBee(R) wireless communication throughout additional areas of a home or commercial facility. This provides users with powerful two-way control and feedback of supported electronics, allowing them to view song metadata, lighting and temperature levels, and more on their Pro24.z remote. The Pro.rfz communicates wirelessly with the ProLink.z processor up to 70 feet away and is conveniently powered from any electrical outlet. For increased reliability -- especially in larger installations -- multiple modules can be utilized within a single deployment.

ProLink.z/Pro24.z Two-Way Control and Feedback System

The Pro Control ProLink.z control processor and the award-winning Pro24.z touch-screen controller work together to deliver the ultimate control experience. The ProLink.z features an integrated 2.4-GHz ZigBee(R) antenna for bi-directional communication via the Pro24.z, in addition to two RS-232 two-way ports for advanced control and monitoring of devices. Sporting a sleek, sophisticated design, the Pro24.z controller features a high-resolution 2.4-inch TFT LCD touch-screen display, programmable five-way joystick, and backlit hard buttons to enable intuitive operation even in a darkened room. The powerful ProLink.z processor stores macros for professional-grade control and features an abundance of control options, including sense events, periodic events, and driver events that can run macros at sunrise or sunset to control lighting, shades, and HVAC. In addition, six routable IR ports with adjustable output strength and two voltage-sensing inputs improve management of connected devices, while an Ethernet port provides network control of a virtually unlimited number of devices.

ProPanel App

The ProPanel app gives end users complete control over any Pro Control system containing a ProLink control processor from the convenience of their iPod touch(R), iPhone(R), or iPad(R). Remarkably easy to program and use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by rotating the Apple(R) device, with no additional programming required. Additionally, the ProPanel app sports a completely customizable graphical user interface, giving end users a consistent user experience across all Pro Control remote controllers in their system. ProPanel supports local connection via Wi-Fi(R) and offers remote-access capabilities via auto-switching Wi-Fi and wireless cellular data -- providing users with convenient control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world. ProPanel stands above the rest by enhancing the control experience with unique capabilities such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather graphics, dynamic image lists, and high-resolution graphics.

iPro.8 Companion Controller

Designed for end-users that enjoy using their Apple(R) smartphone or tablet as the primary controller for their electronic systems, the low-cost Pro Control iPro.8 companion controller adds the convenience of a dedicated remote with instant connectivity and hard buttons for tactile control. The iPro.8 remote works as an extension of the ProPanel app running on an iPod touch(R), iPhone(R), or iPad(R). It gives users the hard buttons and tactile control to which they are accustomed and provides immediate access to common functions such as changing channels, controlling the volume, and DVR transport. The stylish remote overcomes network connectivity issues by using proven and reliable RF technology for instantaneous communication, and is designed for use with any Pro Control ProLink processor with an activated ProPanel app.
