Why don't we have ip control

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
With a lot of devices ( tv,players,amp and so on) having a Ethernet port why don't manufactures allow us to using phones or automation devices?

Sure better that an ir emitter stuck on a tv or something

Lots of TVs and A/V receivers have apps. Some protocols are available, others have been reverse engineered.

Many devices have their own apps for control. You can find them on stores: Google Play, AppStore. Also the majority of devices supports UpNP or DLNA standards. If the device or it's box has a sticker UpNp\DLNA, you can use a Universal App taken from the stores. Moreover there are universal software packages - like iRidium mobile for example - that can control smart homes, AV and automation equipment using iPhone, iPad, Android devices, etc.. Such packages have a prepared/ready to integrate list of supported devices (tvs, players, media-servers, receivers, etc.). With help of such software you can create your own project which will include/control all your devices.

i don't think manufacturers care about 3rd party control.

They can. I use IP drivers for TVs, AVRs, BD players & DirecTV receivers all the time with the Control4 systems I program.

I just checked and CQC has IP drivers for sixty'ish devices. A few of those are software programs, the rest are lighting, security, A/V receivers and processors, media players, projectors and TVs, sat boxes, automation panels, IR blasters/receivers, power monitors, thermostats, etc...
