[FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]

24U announces 24U Phidgets Remote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
The first iPhone/iPad app to let your iPhone or iPad interact with Phidgets to touch the physical world around

Prague, CZ -- November 6, 2015

24U Software announces free download availability of a new mobile application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch that allows for controlling and monitoring Phidgets devices connected to the network with the help of various control layouts.

24U Phidgets Remote can manage electrical devices available on the network, get data from thermometers, pH sensors, light sensors, etc., read and write RFID tags using iPhone or iPad even if user is far away from the phidget. Connection to a phidget is possible via LAN, or even via VPN.


With 24U Phidgets Remote user can:

- switch and control electrical devices simply by a tap
- read values from distant environmental sensors on the go
- use iPhone or iPad to read and write RFID tags
- rotate servo motors by swiping finger across iPhone's display


With some flavor of PhidgetInterfaceKit user's iPhone or iPad can switch signals, turn electrical devices on or off, whether it's at home, in user's office, or in the opposite corner of the same room.

24U Phidgets Remote makes iPhone or iPad read values from thermometers, pH sensors, light sensors, or any other environmental sensors connected to Phidgets I/O boards on the network, and also supports the PhidgetAdvancedServo controller, so it can remotely control servo motors.

24U also offers development of custom control layouts. If user need to control a phidget or set of phidgets for which the currently available layouts are not sufficient, 24U can craft a custom layout with a set of controls specific to his setup.


How 24U Phidgets Remote works

Phidgets are a system of low-cost electronic components and sensors designed and produced by Phidgets Inc., that are usually controlled by a personal computer. The app lets user interact with these devices directly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

To access Phidgets boards using 24U Phidgets Remote user need to connect them either to the Phidgets SBC, or to a computer with the Phidget WebService installed.
