ENCO’s Automation Watch

Control DAD automation via an iWatch app

Here’s something you don’t see every day — automation system control via a smartwatch.

ENCO Systems says it has developed an Apple iWatch app for controlling its DAD automation system. It’s very similar to the iDAD mobile app for smartphones and tablets.

ENCO General Manager Ken Frommert said, “A broadcaster can easily do live remotes and control the automation system from the convenience of his or her wrist.”

A release offers a scenario: “[R]ather than fumbling with a mobile device while conducting an interview or live broadcast, the user can simply press a button on a wristwatch to send a command back to the studio.”
