The innovations to make your home smart don’t only concern the devices that are within the home, or at least not anymore. Aiming to make daily life just a click away, here comes the announcement of 1Control with its latest smart solution. The Brescia-based company has expanded its range by responding to a specific customer need and has thus integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into its devices so as to allow them to open gates and garages directly from the car’s control panel.
1Control smart gate opening: how integration works
Basically, the novelty proposed with the smart 1Control gate opening eliminates remote controls and keys. From today, all Apple or Android users will be able to open gates and garages directly from the on-board infotainment screen of their car without taking their eyes off the road, accessing homes or businesses in a comfortable and safe way, with a simple touch on the touchscreen of the car. The user will only have to make sure that his car is equipped with infotainment that uses the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto operating system, now standard on all new cars, and by connecting his smartphone he will automatically find the app on the car screen 1Control having the SOLO gate opener and/or the LINK Hub branded 1Control.
The collaboration of 1Control and Telepass, but not only
Thanks to smartphones or smartwatches, Telepass and now also thanks to the car’s on-board computer, it is possible to check who comes in and out – even remotely -, access can be blocked or programmed and the problem of duplicability of radio controls can be solved by malicious people, thanks to a sophisticated encryption system. This has also favored various collaborations between 1Control and numerous companies, such as Maserati, Pilomat or Telepass Next, which includes insurance, telematics, electronic toll collection and smart gate opening.
