INDI Control Panel

iINDI is the mobile control panel for the remote INDI servers for iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It offers the same functionality as INDI Control Panel for OS X with iOS look & feel. The only limitation is, that it doesn't support BLOB transfer.

You need remote INDI server accesible from your iPhone or iPad to use this application. Add the server by clicking the plus sign and entering a host name and connect it by clicking its name in the server list. If the indicator in front of the server name is grey, server is disconnected. If it is green, server is connected and if it is red, the connection failed for some reason.

The next level under the server nodes are devices. Again, the grey indicator means disconnected and the green indicator connected device. You can connect or disconnect by navigating to the Connection property (usually in the Main Control group) and clicking the Connect or Disconnect checkbox.

Than you can look through other groups and device properties. You can read and set all properties with the exception of BLOBS. On iPad you can see both the server, device, group and property tree and property items form.

In Settings you can choose to operate the application in the black & red night mode.

The properties are device driver dependent, read Standard Properties article to learn more about some of them. The grey, yellow, green and red indicators in front of the property name corresponds to idle, busy, ok and alert property states.

To run iINDI Control Panel you need iOS 6.0 or later.
