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.

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: Aprilaire, Boston Acoustics®, ClearOne®, Denon, Furman, ICRealtime Security Solutions®, iPort®, Roku®, LG, Lutron®, Luxul, Marantz®, Nest™, MechoSystems, VidaBox, Kaleidescape, Onkyo®, Panamax, Russound®, SurgeX, Wolfvision®, and many more.  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 three main components: the Compass Control® Software License (KD-CSLX1) and the new Compass Control® Master Controller (KD-MC1000).  When these 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 control system provides installers with 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.
