I recently saw a demonstration where an 8Gb Apple iTouch that had been very stylishly wall mounted (so screen was flush with the wall) was being used as a home control interface device (using the iTouch web browser) controlling a solution that looked like it was integrating a number of system (alarm, lighting, heating) via a set of web pages.
In my opinion the current user interface options for Comfort are either cheap looking grey plastic items or hideously expensive touch screens. What is needed is realisticly priced touch screen solution and I think that this is possible using the iTouch becasue it sold at a mass market price.
Has anyone ever tried a solution of this sort using Comfort + Comfort Webserver or Ethernet Interface?
Any software that runs on XP will work eg Wizcomfort (although that needs updating) and the Superna software http://www.comfortforums.com/forum25/1123.html
Wizcomfort can work with a UCM/Audio connected to external soeakers and microphone to act like a keypad
I'm interested in the ipod touch solution. This unit has built in wireless G so in theory could log into the Comfort CWM. The screen is quite small though so there is issues viewing webpages that have small text etc.
The other way to do this would be to write a specific app which would probably be a slicker version of wizcomfort in the first instance.
