GUI

Graphical User Interfaces provide the users with the easiest way to interact with their home automation systems. Controlling devices from a web browser using FutureNow IP modules built-in web interface requires no additional hardware or software.

Our free mobile apps provide more integration and a touch nicer interface with still no extra hardware or software.

For ultimate user experience, custom layout, endless functionality compatible third party systems are the way to go.

 

For integrators who get overwhelmed with the wide range of compatible third-party systems, here is a great tip to pick the right one for the job

The time the configuration of a control system takes is usually proportional with the possibilities/freedom of configurability. In plain English: The more you want the more time it takes. A Control4 system for example can be set up from a few hours to a few days without much programming experience. The cost of the relatively quick success is that the user has to live with an auto-generated user interface which can't be fully customized. At the other end of the spectrum, an AMX system for example takes weeks or months to set up and requires skilled programmers but the user can ask for anything and will get a unique, fully customized user interface.

 

Use our free iOS and Android apps to get an easy start.

FutureNow modules have been designed to be compatible. Due to the open communication protocol they integrate with absolutely everything. Please ask for the API if you are a software module developer and want to integrate FutureNow with a new system.

 

A tip for integrators who may get overwhelmed with the wide range of compatible third-party systems to pick the right one for the job

The time the configuration of a control system takes is usually proportional with the flexibility/freedom of configurability. In plain English: The more flexible a system is the more time it takes to set it up. A Control4 system for example can be up and running within a few hours or a few days without much programming experience. The cost of the quick setup is that the user has to live with an auto-generated user interface which can't be fully customized. At the other end of the spectrum, an AMX system for example takes weeks or months to set up and requires skilled programmers but the user will get a unique, fully customized user interface without any limitations. Setting up a Control4 system consists of drag and dropping and setting parameters, while AMX takes real coding.

 

FutureNow modules have been widely used with the following systems. Most of them offer much more than just a sexy GUI. They offer everything that's needed to get the most out of FutureNow modules.
