Technologies integration

High level of flexibility owing to extensive support of various worldwide standards

As the market gets filled with modern-day technological systems and gadgets, the range of systems for automation is really wide. Nowadays, you can get anything online – from a wireless audio system and smart light bulbs to a phone-controlled kettle. The dream of a modern person, you might think. But here comes the catch: each of these products comes with its own mobile device application.

No matter whether you are a fan of Apple iOS, Android, or Microsoft Windows, these products are compatible with every common operating system. They are, however, not inter-compatible. The Cue System is exactly what you need because has one very important feature - the integration of many supported technologies.
