Try Indigo Touch with Just Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

You can download Indigo Touch onto your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch to demo it even without owning Indigo or any home automation hardware. Your house won't really be controllable of course, but you can get a feel for how Indigo Touch works.

  1. Download Indigo Touch from Apple's iTunes App store.
  2. Sync your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch with iTunes to install the application.
  3. Launch Indigo Touch.
  4. Choose the Demo Server connection option from the Settings panel.

You can now control the devices configured on our Demo Server in Vegas. If other users are also connected to the Demo Server, then you may see live updates to device states (on/off, brightness, thermostat settings, etc.) as they control devices.

Or Get the Free Trial of Indigo for Your Mac

Indigo Touch will also connect to the free trial version of Indigo running on your Mac. You'll be able to rename devices, define automation schedules and logic, and much more. If you have INSTEON or X10 modules and the other required hardware then you'll be able to control them with your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch. But even without any home automation hardware, you'll be able to install Indigo on your Mac to see how well it works with your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch.

  1. Download a free 30 day trial copy of Indigo. Be sure to download the latest version of Indigo.
  2. Register for a free 30 day trial code.
