Lagotek iPhone

Lagotek will present its “HIP1 Modes” Sideshow home control gadget working on iPhone and iPod touch at the up-coming CES 2008… “The ability to run Vista Sideshow gadgets on Apple’s legendary devices to control the home was made possible by Lagotek Corporation and Ikanos Consulting Ltd. working together to merge cutting edge Vista Sideshow technologies with Apple’s famous devices for home automation use.

Lagotek HIP Modes are user created macro states of the Home. By choosing the specific Mode on iPod touch, the homeowner, with the Lagotek HIP home automation system installed, can control lights, temperature, music, audio/video devices and the security system with one touch.

Lagotek CEO Eugene Luskin stated, “This is probably the highest concentration of coolness in one device with Vista Sideshow on iPod doing home automation over WiFi. Our friends at Ikanos Consulting are amazing and, working together, we can achieve in weeks what Microsoft and Apple would never be able to bring to the market. I am very excited with this important step in making Lagotek’s vision of ‘Automation in every home from any device and from anywhere’ closer to reality. This is a perfect complementary solution for our cell phone home control application.”
