Indigo Touch

Indigo Touch is our collection of control apps for monitoring and controlling your house. iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Web browser clients are available. They will automatically discover your Indigo server on your local network and will communicate with Z-Wave and INSTEON compatible hardware. Additionally, device or information supplied by any of our 3rd party plugins is available as well (requires Indigo Touch 2 for iOS.).

Indigo Touch Features

Indigo Touch provides a broad set of features across the various clients, most of which are provided free. Compare that to many of our competitors who charge for the most basic functionality. We also offer a subscription-based Indigo Reflector which offers a easy to configure option to remotely access Indigo away from the home.

Full Device Access

You have complete real-time access to all of your devices regardless of protocol, including many provided by our 3rd party developers. Control of your devices is a snap with our intuitive controls for lights, thermostats, fans, sprinklers, etc.

Flexible Connectivity

Optimized to run smoothly on all wireless network options: WiFi, LTE, 3G, and Edge. Connect via Bonjour discovery (no IP addresses needed) in supported apps or browsers. Simple remote access from anywhere via our optional reflector service — no router tweaking needed.

Actions and Variables

Execute Action Groups that perform more complex sets of actions — all with a single tap/click. View real-time updates to Variables and change them instantly.

Graphical Control Pages

Your graphical Control Pages are rendered identically across all Indigo Touch client apps. This provides you with an identical experience no matter what platform you're on.

Folder Organization

Since you understand your environment better than we do, you view your devices, actions, variables, and control pages in the folder organization that you created in the Mac client. Everything is where you intend it to be. Changes to the folder hierarchy are immediately reflected in all clients.

Event Log

View the full event log to see what's going on with your smart home system. Diagnosing problems has never been quite this simple (requires Indigo 6 v6.1.0 or better and Indigo Touch 2 for iOS).

Indigo Touch for iOS Features

Indigo Touch for iOS also provides some features that are only appropriate for a mobile device app.

Universal iOS App

Indigo Touch for iOS has been optimized for your all of your iOS devices: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, all in a single app. Unlike the competition, who charges more for an iPad optimized app, you get all supported screen sizes in a single universal app.

Graphical Control Pages

View your graphical control pages beautifully on your iOS device. We support all screen orientations and pinch, unpinch, and double tap gestures on all iOS devices.

Integrate with Other Apps

Indigo Touch has a variety of iOS URL schemes that can be used to launch to specific views (device list, specific control page, etc.) from other iOS app that supports openning URLs. Options on these URLs can control when tab and navigation bars are visible to optimize your screen real-estate.

Trying Indigo Touch for iOS

Trying out Indigo Touch for iOS is simple, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Start the Indigo Touch app.
  2. Choose the Demo Server connection option from the Settings panel. If it doesn't open immediately, tap on the gear icon in the upper right corner.

  1. Select the Indigo->Start Local Server... menu item.
  2. Choose the Start and connect to Indigo Server on this computer radio button.
  3. Make sure the Allow remote access and Enable iPhone... checkboxes are enabled.
  4. Press the Restart Server button.
  5. From Indigo Touch tap on the gear icon and select your home Indigo database name.
