Convergence. It's a big word that you've probably heard at least once in the past few months. But it's nothing new to Cinemar.
We started our convergence over 10 years ago when we began developing MainLobby and made it acceptable to utilize Windows compatible
computers for automation and media management in the home and boardroom.
MainLobby has been paving the way and is a leader in this market for both integrators and Do-It-Yourselfers. We realize that not everyone
is a programmer or a graphic designer. So we've taken the complexity out and made a drag and drop environment for controlling everything
from irrigation systems and dvd changers to whole house audio controllers. In it's simplest form, you can think of MainLobby as
an Operating System. And all the other modules are sub programs that run within MainLobby. You can customize your own scene designs quickly
and easily or start with one of the many predesigned scenes. With access to hundreds of graphics, it's not hard to create appealing interfaces
end users will love.
Our client/server architecture ensures access from anywhere on your network. MainLobby Server 4 (MLServer 4)
is the phone line that allows up to five MainLobby clients (additional clients available) to control enabled hardware and software plugins.
Send IR/Serial commands via the Global Cache from distributed MainLobby clients.
Brand new with MainLobby Server 4 is full automation capability including timed / reoccurring / conditional and on-event control capability.
Turn your lights on 10 minutes before sunset. Send a command to shut your spinkler zone off when someone is walking up the driveway
(additional hardware / software required). The list is huge on what you can now do with the MainLobby 4 Suite!
Add an iPad or Tablet and control your home or theater from the comfort of your recliner. Users can hit one button and have all components
turn-on and configure lighting to the proper level. The only limit is your imagination.
