iPhone Homeworks app
Now you can control your Lutron Homeworks lighting system with your Apple iPhone or iPod Touch

Natty thing the iPhone. Handy for making phone calls, emailing, texting and storing /playing all your digital media.

But now it can even control your home automation systems. And the latest app, from Lutron Electronics, will enable it to control an entire Lutron Homeworks whole-home lighting system. The new app, available on the iTunes App Store for £22.99, can also be used with an iPod Touch.

With the touch of an icon installed on their iPhone/Touch, users gain complete access to their Homeworks system and keypads, wherever they are in the world. 

From setting the 'mood lighting' in advance of their return home, to chooosing energy saving, pre-set lighting levels, the user has complete control of their home lighting from a hand-held portable device.

More after the break

Andrew Bechgaard, head of marketing EMEA at Lutron, says: "Our Homeworks system is all about complex functionality with an easy-to-use interface, so the fit with Apple iPhone for us and our customers is perfect."
