Interactive user interface delivers “iPhone-like” GestureTouch technology throughout the home
Savant Systems LLC, having led the convergence of an open architecture platform to integrate automation and control, A/V switching, and general purpose computers, has announced the introduction of TrueImage Control, a visually captivating interface that is the most intuitive solution ever conceived for the home automation marketplace. TrueImage Control is a unique and entertaining user interface solution that uses state-of-the-art capacitive glass technology and is available in Savant’s line of ROSIE In-Wall and Tabletop Touch Panels providing iPhone-like GestureTouch navigation anywhere in the home.
Designing an intuitive user interface (UI) is critical to satisfying a homeowner with a whole-house control system. Savant’s TrueImage technology gives you fingertip control via a simple tap on a wide angle image of each room in your home. Each touch allows you to dim and turn on/off lights, lower or raise shades, even turn on/off your audio and video
components. Instead of interacting with confusing icons, TrueImage allows you to simply touch the actual light or shade in that room. Not only does the light in the room turn on or dim (if you press and hold the represented light), but it also illuminates on the touch panel confirming your command.
Dealers and System Integrators alike now have yet another unique product to offer that not only generates the “wow” factor for consumers, but also delivers value and functionality to any home or business.
How It Works
Professionally shot images of each room are loaded into the ROSIE control platform, enabling users to navigate and control their home using TrueImage Control. As an example, the homeowner can employ a swiping action to the screen, resulting in the images of each room “rolling” across the display until the desired image appears. One room of the residence can be designated the “master” image, while all other rooms remain visible in a scroll box across the bottom of the screen that can be “gestured” left or right, much like using an iPhone. Savant’s touch panels with TrueImage Control are designed with the most advanced capacitive display technology currently available. A resilient topcoat provides a smooth, easy glide surface while offering outstanding durability. Savant’s touch panels offer vibrant optical characteristics and optimal anti-glare properties. TrueImage Control technology will be available on Savant’s line of In-wall and Tabletop Touch Panels Q4, 2009.
