Big Picture People give hi-tech a PUSH
LOOKING for a gift for the person who has everything?
Robina Super Centre store, The Big Picture People, specialises in software called PUSH - an app driven from Apple products and designed for remote control of household technology.
Owner Kym Glover said some of the hottest gadgets on the Christmas list this year reflected the trend for wireless technology in personal mobile devices.
"One of the biggest things we're seeing is wireless hook-ups to iPhone and iPads," he said.
"As the technology develops, people want to control their other products - home cinema, speakers, or even the lights from one central point."
The PUSH control system allows a user to operate their home theatre and music systems from their iPhone or iPad via the download of the free application.
Up to six devices can be programmed to the software, according to PUSH installer Stewart Reeve.
"Basically it is an application that we program to control your entire home," he said.
"It can control pretty much anything so long as the device you're connecting to has the right technology.
"If you have a camera on your gate, you can program your iPad to log into the camera so you can see who's calling before you open the gate via the same screen."
Music and movies can then be streamed wirelessly to the home cinema from mobile device.
The business offers complete home cinema packages installed from $5999 through to high-end $20,000 packages.
