Key Digital Releases Compass Control®: A Fully Integrated Control System for Commercial Applications
Mount Vernon, NY. Key Digital Systems, Inc. – April 17, 2012 – Key Digital is proud to introduce its first comprehensive control system for commercial applications called Compass Control®. Compass Control® represents the first fully integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple’s iOS 5 devices – iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® – as its backbone. ® in conjunction with Compass Control’s Compass Alliance Partners (CAP) has created a fully integrated control system with driver support for hardware from the following brands: Aprilaire, Boston Acoustics®, ClearOne®, Denon, Furman, ICRealtime Security Solutions®, iPort®, Key Digital, LG, Lutron®, Luxul, Marantz®, MechoSystems, Onkyo®, Panamax, Primeview, Russound®, SurgeX, and Wolfvision®. Combining the knowledge and expertise from the different CAP brands has allowed Compass Control® to develop into a complete turnkey or commercial control solution. KD-CSL Compass Control® software license, the system is ready for use. All of the control protocols are routed through the KD-MC2500 Master Controller which effectively acts as the brain of the entire system. The Master Controller, which itself is controllable via TCP/IP, communicates with all devices in the system and integrates all components. Compass Control® is a powerful tool in an educational setting where it gives an educator control over audio, video, and lighting in order to create a better learning environment. Compass Control® even has the power to monitor hundreds of security cameras in an apartment building at the swipe of a finger. ® has the ability to control devices via RS-232, IR, or TCP/IP. This new control system provides installers with bi-directional IR, two-way RS-232 with feedback, and two-way TCP/IP control for unlimited flexibility and maximum compatibility with new or existing devices. Compass Control® also provides control via relays and sensors demonstrating its nature as a powerful integration tool. When programming the system via the Compass Navigator® PC editor software, installers are given three separate database managers to make programming faster than traditional control systems. Compass Navigator® also enables installers to edit command code sets, allowing Compass Control® to be tailored to each and every system installation. ® represents the culmination of our efforts to create the most powerful, most user-friendly, and most comprehensive control system available on the market today."
