Spotlight On Embedded Automation

Embedded Automation

mControl is software for your digital home that enables you from a Media Center PC, via Internet Explorer or through your Windows Mobile device, to control all aspects of your home with a touch of a button.

mControl is a software application for Windows PCs and mPanel providing the ability to control a variety of sub-systems via software drivers.

The mPanel Touchpanel is a Digital Media Interface, which implements UPnP AV Control Point technology, can select music, with rich meta data, from any computer or storage on your local area network and play it through the on-board amplifier. mPanel’s Digital Home Interface can connect to any mControl installation to allow live status and control of lighting, climate control, security system, surveillance cameras, audio/visual components and custom macros. When idle, mPanel, using a measly 6W of power, automatically converts into a digital photo frame for your favorite pictures.
