Steeper launches environmental control app to set new standards in home automation industry
Assistive technology specialist Steeper Group has released a new app called evo+, which is designed to turn any smart device into a universal environmental home control device.
Steeper says the new app will give users freedom and flexibility as it is a completely personalised device, allowing people to get on with what they enjoy doing rather than spending time carrying out daily routines.
Mark Davies, Rehabilitation Services Director at Steeper, said: “It’s very exciting for us to launch evo+. The new app is more responsive, reliable and stable, which is vitally important for users in their homes.
“By introducing the additional personalisation aspects, we truly believe it will become a prominent feature for users.”
The enhanced design is focused around individual requirements, as during installation and maintenance, the app’s functions will be configured according to specific daily requirements and personal preferences.
Additionally, the ability to integrate with peripherals around the home means user’s current controls, such as door openers and intercom systems, can be configured with evo+ or a new home control solution installed completely to work alongside.
Colour themes and icon size can be adjusted, with pre-recorded icon instructions and multiple access options to ensure all functions are clearly visible and easily used.
Jon Clayton, an experienced home control user, shared his experience with evo+: “The ability of evo+ is a huge breakthrough, giving me more control and versatility. What has come with this is more independence, which to me is very important.
“As I have little control of many things in my life, having the mere choice of choosing multiple channels and controls is tremendous.”
The app is fully integrated with Apple iOS, so whenever a new update is released, clients will be prompted to update the app straight away to ensure it remains a reliable and efficient solution.
evo+ is now available to purchase in the UK directly through Steeper.
