Living Control systems now have a variety of ways to integrate with apple iPhone, iPad, and iTunes.

iTunes

We are often asked how our systems integrate with iTunes devices such as the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. There are several ways in which you can do this.


Airplay

This is the method used by most customers to integrate with Apple products. The audio output from Airport Express can be fed directly into one of our inputs as a source. The Apple TV optical output can be fed into an optical input on our digital input module.

This will then allow you to select and play music directly from your Airplay-capable iPod, iPhone, or iPad in any room. Just select the iPod source from the pad in the required room and play the music from your iPod over Airplay. If you use the iPhone control shown above you can do everything from your iPhone or iPad.
