Vantage WebPoint™ is the convergence of home networking and
home automation. It is the home networking software that finally
allows control and programming of full-featured automation from
a simple personal digital assistant (PDA), Web pad or personal computer
VANTAGE WEBPOINT™ PROVIDES TOUCH SCREEN AUTOMATION FROM ANY
Until now, integrating a touch screen with a control system has
required complicated programming codes in proprietary languages.
The options have primarily been very expensive third party products.
Now with WebPoint, any network-enabled device can become part of
the home control network.
Once connected to the network, WebPoint automatically updates itself
with current Vantage programming. Within minutes any device on the
Vantage system can then be accessed and controlled. This means WebPoint
can orchestrate actions on any device that can be controlled by:
RS-232, infrared emitters, DMX, high or low voltage, electronic
or mechanical relays and variable voltage output. Devices that use
these interfaces include virtually all A/V equipment, HVAC equipment,
security systems and motorized devices such as drapes, blinds and
The WebPoint is an exciting new prospect for the home automation
industry. It cuts down on installation time, expands design options
and gives the homeowner more freedom to make changes without the
fear of altering essential programming.
Programming personal preferences can be done without any worries
or training. Adjustments that are done using WebPoint could be removed
and the Vantage system will continue to function as originally programmed.
Adjustments are made by simply moving a slider or changing the
state of an on/off switch. Once the scene has been set to the desired
levels it can be saved as a macro. Then any time in the future that
the macro button is pressed all of the desired components will adjust
to the saved preferences.
Compared to other interfaces, WebPoint meets and exceeds expectations.
Any size home can integrate the WebPoint functionality and include
up to 32 Web devices on one Vantage system. Other features include
definable user access, easy programming of delays or timed events
and varied themes to accommodate different users and devices.
