With the new Ascent, there is a new proprietary controller. It has been completely re-designed with a 5V charging port and a high-resolution OLED screen. The buttons on the controller are bigger for increased ease of use and come with improved tactility. Furthermore, this controller has backlit lighting in different colour options from rolling RGB colours to single colour variants that range from blue to white.

Wondering how to change the lighting colours? There is a new companion app, Omnidesk Life, to go with the Ascent. This app pairs to the controller via Bluetooth allowing you to not only change lighting effects, but also adjust the height of the desk remotely.
