Johnson Controls recently announced the introduction of the C•CURE Go Install app for use with the Software House iSTAR Ultra LT. The new app reportedly provides a more efficient, convenient means of configuring or updating information on the iSTAR Ultra LT controller without having to physically access the unit.
Working with an embedded Bluetooth antenna that can be turned on and off remotely to ensure network security, users can log into the C•CURE Go Install app to perform a host of tasks, including configuring the network settings on the controller, rebooting the device and checking its status. The app is designed for use with iSTAR Ultra LT controllers that are difficult to access for manual configuration, such as units located high above doorways or behind ceiling tiles.
The password-protected app works for users within range of the controller, including in-house security staff, integrators or installers. Using the app replaces having to make changes on or check status directly from the controller.
“Using the C•CURE Go Install app with the iSTAR Ultra LT minimizes the disruption that can be caused by having to access the controller itself,” said Rick Focke, director of product management, enterprise access control, building technologies and solutions, Johnson Controls. “Increasingly, there are applications, such as hospitals with sealed ceilings, where physical access to the controller just isn’t feasible. Using the intuitive app instead to perform myriad tasks provides a more efficient option.”
