Indigo Touch is an automation tool that allows you to control any smart appliance in your home. It communicates directly with your Indigo-enabled Mac home computer so you can have access to the key functions of your home appliances. It serves as a remote control system that works wherever you are. Developed by Perceptive Automation, this app is perfect for your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
Smart home appliance technologies have been around for many years. You can control these appliances remotely anywhere in the house. But did you know that you can now control any of your smart appliances even if you are not at home?
What you need is an app called Indigo Touch. This is a free universal application that allows you to access the power functions of your appliances by remote control.
However, you have to take note that this is a not a standalone app. You need a separate system and hardware to establish a link between the app and appliances.
For starters, you have to install X-10 compatible module in your home such as Insteon or Z-Wave. Then, you should install the Indigo Smart Home Hub in your Mac home computer. This will serve as the connecting server between the Indigo Touch and your appliances.
Once these systems are already in place, then you can load the app to access the smart features of your appliances. Make sure that your Mac is online so that it can establish a stable link for the app.
One notable thing about Indigo Touch is its ease of use. It allows you to access connected appliances in one interface. With a few taps, you can instantly turn on the sprinklers on your front lawn. You can also control the thermostat, lighting, smoke detectors, media devices, and many more.
