A new home-control system has recently hit the shores of the US from its home in Germany. Visiomatic has released a new line of touchpanels and home controls through its US representative company Siedle. The home control system can display multiple languages, comes in a wide range of screen sizes in both the wired and wireless formats, and can display on-screen graphics – including the homeowner’s floor plans and other schematics.
Control4 has expanded its line of control systems by adding a 7-inch Table Top Touch Screen. This screen features a 16 by 9 format, and is meant to compliment Control4’s Mini Touch Screen, among others. This device is more flexible due to its placement options and the fact that it is a table top display. The larger screen size will also make this device more user-friendly and easy to navigate than the Mini Touch Screen.
