Touch Panels & Mobile Devices
Touch panels come in many sizes and colors to be determined by the room in which they’re located. A touch panel is always on and and can serve multiple purposes. When in sleep mode, it can turn into a picture viewer, giving a slide show until it is touched again. It can also serve as a TV monitor from a cable or satellite box. A touch panel will also display all the cover art to your music and playlists.
You can control an entire system with any mobile device and iPad just like a touch panel. One main difference is that it is always with you wherever you go. You can remotely operate or check on your home from anywhere. This is a nice, easy, and convienent way to control your home.

You also have the ability to monitor pool health, receive custom alerts, and even control the system from your cell phone.
