    Hi guys,
    richard and I will be away for the next 3 weeks in Europe.
    next week we will be exhibiting on the Control4 stand at ISE so if any dealers are around pop by and say hi.
    If you need anything from us Justin (our new Control4 developer) is still in the office during Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
    driverCentral is still available as well for support during mountain time hours.
    see you guys in 3 weeks!

    Thanks for the feedback.  At this stage we only have channel drivers for Virgin Media, Freesat and Sky.  We may integrate other channel services in the future but don't want to promise anything as we may not be able to deliver.

    I actually ordered a HS220 from amazon along with a step down transformer.  The HS220 is different from the LB range so had to develop a new driver specific to that.  It is currently in beta and will be released once i do some more changes to the other TP-Link drivers.  At this stage it is scheduled for a March release as i will be away in europe / ISE for a while starting next week.

    Anthem sponsored us to handle development of their STR drivers.
    You can get the FREE drivers here for the stereo pre-amp and the amp.  These things are monsters. The coolest part of the driver we developed is that you can choose speaker profiles through Control4's navigator interface.

    For my setup I just turn on the Wii via the wiimote and Control4 knows to turn everything else on.  System is smart enough to turn everything off if the Wii is still the selected source and the Wii is turned off by wiimote or physically.  If however the source is changed to something else and the Wii is then turned off the system is smart enough to leave the tv on.
    this is achieved via power sensing on the belkin Wemo insight switch via the following driver

    Our event logging driver will sort you out.  You can view events on navigator or via any web browser that has access to the controller.

    If you have a T3 touchscreen you can add it as a guest service.  If you only have one guest service it will appear in the main screen.  Note only works for T3s

    The driver is compatible with these UK TP-Link smart home devices (which is all plugs and bulbs available in the UK)
    LB100 LB110 LB120 LB130 HS100 HS110 The driver allows for ON and OFF commands.  Just be mindful that if you power cycle something network related that connects Control4 to the HS300 (ie switch or access point) it won't turn it back on.  If the modem is not in that routing path then it should be ok in theory.  Note this is nothing to do with the driver.

    UPDATE
    This driver suite now supports the following models.
    HS107 Dual Outlet - MSRP $39.99 HS300 Power Strip with energy monitoring - MSRP $79.99 I am exceptionally fond of the HS300 power strip as they are so versitile.  It is bang for buck in comparison to other similar solutions.  Throw it behind a TV or inside a rack and you get 6 controllable outlets with energy monitoring.  The energy monitoring can be programmed with in control4 to automatically select a source or turn off a room.  This is great for non controllable devices such as playstations and xboxes where you would pick up the original gaming controller and have Control4 setup the room automatically.

    I am very excited by this.
    Stupidly affordable.  No more expensive PDUs Wifi based Surge Protection 6 x individually controlled outlets 3 x 2.4 amp USB ports Energy monitoring per port (used to do some pretty cool stuff in Control4). Great to throw behind a TV cabinet or inside a rack.
