  8. Chowmain - Scheduler app for T3 touchscreens As of OS 2.9.0 Control4 introduced the new webview driver. This webview driver allows Control4 T3 touchscreens to display a webpage for interaction with the customer. We have taken advantage of this architecture to develop some custom applications for the T3 touchscreens. The Scheduler webview driver for Control4 provides end users with the ability to schedule pre-setup presets/macros via the T3 touchscreen. We have designed the scheduler to look, feel and operate in a similar manner to the Control4 thermostat scheduler. You can setup a repeating schedule which will repeat on a weekly basis or setup a one off schedule that will only operate once and will remove or disable itself after it executes. This adds a missing feature from the Control4 home automation system that dealers have sought after for years and provides end users the ability to schedule without having to utilise the Control4 Composer Home Edition software for PC An infinite amount of Presets/Macros can be setup by the dealer to suit the customer’s lifestyle and Control4 system. For example you can create Sprinklers On and Sprinklers Off presets or for a commercial job they can setup a shop open and shop close schedule. Features Consumers have full control over the scheduler from their T3 touchscreen. They can Add a schedule in to fire a preset macro. (Schedules can be once off schedules or can repeat every week for any day / time) Enable/Disable a schedule from running Delete a schedule Dealers can Add in an infinite amount of preset macros and program against them Note Control4 has made it a policy that all web assets must be hosted externally to the controller. As such this application requires an active internet connection to access the application each time it runs. All personal data is stored on the local Control4 controller. FAQ Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Customers finally have the ability to add schedules to their Control4 system without using Composer Home Edition. This includes: Setup a schedule for your sprinklers Setup a schedule for commerical (opening hours, closing hours, etc) Schedule those lights to turn on/off at different times Schedule fireplaces, fans and other devices to turn on when you want to. Schedule pool pumps to clean the pool Schedule fountains and other water features. Why should i use this over Composer Home Edition? This is not a replacement for Composer Home Edition. Not all end users want to learn how to program their system using Composer Home Edition. Our scheduler will allow them to easily manage scheduling for anything connected to Control4 via the Control4 T3 touchscreens. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  9. Chowmain - Contact Us app for T3 touchscreens As of OS 2.9.0 Control4 introduced the new webview driver. This webview driver allows Control4 T3 touchscreens to display a webpage for interaction with the customer. We have taken advantage of this architecture to develop some custom applications for the T3 touchscreens. The Contact Us webview driver for Control4 provides dealers with a professional looking contact us page on the T3 touchscreen with customisable company logo, company contact details, google map and clickable URL to the company website. This adds the final touch to a professionally installed system and provides dealers with a cheap way of marketing their company to people who utilise the touchscreen including guests/visitors or if even the next homeowner should your customer sell their home.

Add in job specific instructions / troubleshooting steps into the Summary section. Redirect to your company's website when the customer clicks on a URL. How do i obtain the latitude and longitude?

  18. Chowmain - IntesisBox HVAC integration driver Most HVAC installations in the United States are easy as most thermostats utilise a universal standard and as such can be replaced easily by a 3rd party thermostat such as Control4’s thermostat. Unfortunately alot of HVAC manufacturers do not utilise this standard and have proprietary closed communications that are specific to that HVAC manufacturer. This makes it extremely cumbersome for Control4 dealers to source a reliable HVAC product and in many countries Control4 dealers do not even bother with HVAC integration because it is just too hard. Luckily Intesis have released their range of IntesisBox wifi gateways. The IntesisBox allows you to easily integrate HVAC systems into Control4 by retrofitting the IntesisBox gateway into the existing indoor unit. Intesis offer two gateway types. Specific IntesisBox’s are developed to communicate with the HVAC manufacturer’s proprietary communications protocol allowing for true real time bidirectional communication with the system. Universal IntesisBox’s are developed to offer compatibility with thousands of HVAC models through infra red and offer room temperature feedback via a sensor in the IntesisBox. Chowmain’s IntesisBox driver for Control4 will work with all models of IntesisBox and will provide full two way control/feedback. Features Automatic discovery of Intesisbox based on unit MAC address. Self healing - if IP address changes the driver will automatically rediscover the unit. Auto configuration of available of HVAC Modes from IntesisBox. Auto configuration of available of Fan Speeds from IntesisBox. Auto configuration of set point limits (minimum and maximum). Auto configuration of available vane positions. Temperature Feedback. Setpoint Control. Up/Down/Left/Right Vane position control* Built in Scheduling. Built in Presets. HVAC System Error detection and feedback (only on non universal IntesisBox’s). Support for multiple AC units (this will work on future IntesisBox hardware – Current version only supports single indoor units). Universal Model will detect if the customer uses the original IR remote control to control HVAC system and set the feedback accordingly. * If fitted to the HVAC system. FAQ Why is this product exciting? In Australia and New Zealand (and other countries) HVAC integration has been hard because HVAC companies do not utilise the honeywell based wiring that most smart thermostats like Nest, Control4 and Honeywell use. Split Systems have been extremely hard as traditionally they only offer IR or RF based remote controls. In the past we have integrated these systems by learning every combination of IR code however this is extremely time consuming. Also integration for ducted systems and VRF systems were hard because manufacturers have their own propriatary bus. Now with the IntesisBox installers can now easily integrate HVAC systems into Control4. The IntesisBox is affordable unlike other solutions so the cost of integration per zone is extremely low. On top of that it communicates via wifi so dealers can now revisit old customers with compatible HVAC systems to upgrade their home automation system and integrate their HVAC systems without additional wiring. This really changes the HVAC game. What HVAC systems can i use this driver with? IntesisBox is compatible with a range of HVAC systems. Please see the Intesis website to check if the HVAC system you want to integrate has a specific IntesisBox or is compatible with the universal IntesisBox. Their ebsite will have the most upto date information about supported models. If you are unsure if you HVAC system is supported please contact Intesis support (support@intesis.com) and they will advise if you HVAC system is supported and what model IntesisBox you need to purchase At the time of writing this Intesis have specific bus based IntesisBox make/models for Daikin Domestic line Daikin Sky and VRV lines Fuji Electric Domestic Lines Fujitsu Domestic and VRF lines General Domestic and VRF lines LG Domestic LG VRF Lines Mitsubishi Electric Domestic, MR Slim and City lines Mitsubishi Heavy Industries FD and Hypermulti lines Panasonic ecoi and paci lines Panasonic etherea domestic lines Samsung VRF linese Sanyo ecoi and paci lines Toshiba Commercial and VRF lines At the time of writing this Intesis's universal infra red IntesisBox supports the following make/models Acson Aermec Aircool Airlin Airwell Alpicair Argoclima Balupunkt Carrier Daikin Daitsu Delonghi Dolphin Emmeti Electra Friedrich Fujitsu Fuji Electric General Gree Hiyasu Kaysun LG Midea Mitsubishi Electric Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Mundoclima New Pol Panasonic Samsung Samui Tadiran TCL Toshiba Vaillant Can i control fan direction with this? Yes our driver allows for up/down and left/right vane control. This is accessible under the Extras Tab. Can i do schedule the HVAC system using this? Yes our driver has built in presets and scheduling. Where can i purchase this module? Intesis sells the IntesisBox in over 90 countries. They mainly sell direct. The product has regulatory compliance for Europe, US, Canada and Australia.

  25. Chowmain - Video Game Integration OS 2.9 introduced experience buttons. This allowed us to add icons to Control4's navigator user interface. It also allowed us to create what is called 'no control devices'. These devices when selected do not display any transport controls on the user interface.

Combine it with the Chowmain Belkin WeMo Insight driver and have the system automatically turn on when the video game console powers up and have the whole system turn off when the console turns off. The following video game consoles have been integrated.
