CP Electronics, a leader in the design and manufacture of energy saving lighting controls, has announced the launch of its very first range of smartphone apps which will enable contractors and end users alike to control their lighting remotely.
Suitable for infrared-enabled mobile phones working on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above, the UHS7 and UHS5 apps will replicate the functionality of their handset counterparts. Broadly, users will be able to raise and lower lighting levels, turn lights on and off and select scenes – all from a smartphone!
Available from Google Play Store, the intuitive user interface also provides information around basic programming and installation of CP Electronics’ infrared enabled devices. Consistent with CP’s mission to deliver sustainable, energy-efficient lighting controls solutions to the market, the two new apps allow for the possibility of energy and cost savings by granting customers complete control over their lighting usage.
While the UHS7 app will have exactly the same layout as the UHS7 handset, many of the multiple programming options available via the UHS5 handset have been streamlined, making them easier to use than ever before.
Merlin Milner, Director of New Product Development at CP Electronics, explained: “In creating these apps, we are responding to ever-growing demand for convenience and ease of use. By helping our customers to take complete ownership of their lighting controls, we are enabling our customers to save time, energy and money. There is an app for most things nowadays and we want to find new and innovative ways to stay ahead of the curve.”
