Key Digital® will showcase the following products at InfoComm 2013:

Compass Control

Key Digital® will be the star of the show at InfoComm 2013 with its latest innovation Compass Control®, which represents the first fully integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple's iOS devices – iPad®, iPad mini®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® – as its backbone.  

Key Digital® 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: Access Networks, ADA, Aprilaire, Ashly, Autonomic, Boston Acoustics®, ClearOne®, Cloud, Denon, Furman, HAI by Leviton, ICRealtime Security Solutions®, Integra, iPort®, JVC Professional, Kaleidescape, LG, Lutron®, Luxul, Marantz®, MechoShade, Onkyo®, Optoma, Pakedge, Panamax, Primeview, Polycom, Request, Russound®, RCI Custom, Sharp, Sonance, SurgeX, Vidabox, Wolfvision®,  and YCD Multimedia. Combining the knowledge and expertise from the different CAP brands has allowed Compass Control® to develop into a complete turnkey residential or commercial control solution. 

Compass Control® is currently comprised of two main components: the Compass Control® Software License (KD-CSLX1, KD-CSLX4, KD-CSLX6, KD-CSLX8) and the Compass Control® Master Controller (KD-MC2500). When these two elements are combined with the Compass Control® App – currently available in the App Store on iTunes – any installation is now given complete control over audio, video, HVAC, lighting, shades, and security. 

Compass Control® has the ability to control devices via RS-232, IR, or via 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.
