HIQ Commander is a smartphone application (iOS / Android). It allows the user to control lights, blinds, heating/cooling and alarm.
When started for the first time, the application automatically detects connected devices. The following devices are supported:
For each device, the user can give a recognizable name and select an appropriate icon.
You can also control various devices, such as bathroom fans, table fans, electric heaters or audio/video systems. RGB dimmer includes a white temperature mode, which allows user to select between cold daylight and warm evening light. Thermostat allows for a separate temperature for each room.
HIQ Commander can work using a local network or through internet access, using HIQ Universe.
