  1. Chowmain - Plex Full Plex is a centralized home media playback system with a powerful central server (Plex Media Server) that streams its media to many Plex player Apps which can reside on a number of devices from Roku, Amazon Fire TV, HTPC’s, mobile devices and even Smart TV’s. The Server is available on many platforms like Windows, OS X, and many flavors of Linux, as well as many NAS devices. The Chowmain Plex Full driver is one of the only Control4 drivers to have full library integration including Movies, TV Shows, Music and photo browsing/searching/playback and can be used to control Plex on various platforms including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Sony Android TV’s (FY15 up), Dedicated HTPC’s running Plex Home Theater or Plex Media Player. This complete solution provides the consumer will seamless playback of content from any Control4 interface including SR-250/SR-260, Onscreen Navigator, Touchscreens, IPhone/Android based Navigators and more. This driver will only work on Control4 OS 2.7 and above. Features Ability to browse/search/playback Movies, TV Episodes, Music & Photos from any Plex client/server with cover art including local or remote servers. Ability to browse content by recently added, recently aired, recently viewed and more. Ability to resume movies or tv episodes from where you have left off. Ability to program any event in Control4 to trigger playback. Eg keypad on the wall, security system disarm, motion sensor trigger. Ability to automatically turn the room on upon playback. This is good for dedicated Plex systems where you might want to send playback of content from your mobile device or tablet to your TV.

Support for Sky Now TV and Telstra TV boxes (Roku rebadged boxes). Ability to return to the Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Sony TV drivers upon exiting Plex. Makes the experience seamless. Ability to return to onscreen navigator on playback ended. This is great if you want to hide Plex’s interface and use Control4 only. Ability to switch users. This allows for content restriction based upon username/passcode. Limit children to G rated content only. This also allows multiple family members to resume playback from different spots. Frequently Asked Questions I'm confused which Plex driver should i be using? A while ago we created the Plex Home Theater driver and Plex Media Player driver. These drivers utilised the older Control4 media player interface which could only handle movie integration. Back in August 2015 we released Kodi Full. This driver utilised a new method to display content on Control4’s devices. We decided that we would improve on our Plex driver’s by doing something similar and have named it to match our Kodi Full driver. Plex Home Theater is still an excellent driver and may do everything that you want. Plex Full however is superior to Plex Home Theater and the development time period reflects that. Do i need to the Plex Media Server driver as well? No additional drivers are required to operate Plex Full. Please read the installation PDF to get an understanding on how the driver works and how to set it up. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Browse/search/playback movies, tv shows, music, photos from Plex.on any Control4 user interface including touchscreens, onscreens, smart phones, tablets and remote controls. Resume content that you have started watching from where you left off from a different Plex client. Complete your media playing solution by pairing our driver with a Roku or an Amazon Fire TV. Both devices can utilise streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu. With our driver installed the customer will now be able to browse/search/playback any of his own personal content on the system. Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. This driver provides two way feedback on what media you're consuming and what the state of the media player is. It will tell you when the movie is playing, paused, stopped or if it is a video, photo, song or if it is in navigation. This information is useful for customising your lighting and environment to suit your customer's requirements. Start a movie on your tablet and then cast it to your theater to have your theater automatically turn on. Fall asleep at the TV? The driver will automatically turn the room off once the movie has finished after a period of time. Setup a button on your onwall keypad to start playback of you or your family’s favourite movie. One touch playback. Great for kids. Limit the content your children can watch to G or PG-13 rated content by using User/Pin codes. What hardware will this work on? This driver has been tested on Roku (including Telstra TV and Sky Now TV variants), Amazon Fire TV, Sony FY15 Android TV’s, Plex Home Theater (OSX/Windows), Plex Media Player (OSX/Windows). If you choose to use it on any other platform you do so at your own risk. It should work however you will find the problem is launching into the application on the platform of choice. It is recommended that prior to purchasing this driver you utilise the free 48 hour trial period for testing. NOTE: Amazon Fire TV OS 5 and above currently has a bug which do not allow multiple ADB connections simulataneously. If you chose to utilize the the Fire TV with OS 5.0 and above then you cannot add in the official Control4 Amazon Fire TV driver. This is due to a single connection limitation for ADB. You can however utilize the Houselogix Amazon Fire TV driver as it will launch Plex for us. Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above? We utilise methods exposed only to the Control4 OS 2.7 Driverworks software development kit. It will not work with any lower versions of OS. I want to try this driver out before buying it?

This unit is extremely affordable, is powered via a local 12vdc supply and is also din mountable. Other integrated solutions cost anywhere from 3 times to 10 times more.

Direct link below http://www.sainsmart.com/sainsmart-rj45-tcp-ip-remote-controller-board-with-8-channels-relay-integrated.html Why can't i trigger all the relays at once? Due to limitations in the device we can only send 1 command at a time per request. Each request is sent immediately after we receive a reply. As such you may notice a slight popcorn effect (for aproximately 100 milliseconds from our tests) especially in devices such as blinds and lights. Why do you only support OS 2.6 and above? OS 2.6 offers a superior security encryption algorithm and a new and improved driver format.

  5. Chowmain - Internet Weather Forecast Drivers The Forecast.io service provides free (upto 1000 calls per day) weather data and forecast. Forecast.io is backed by a wide range of data sources, which are aggregated together statistically to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location. The OpenWeatherMap service provides free weather data and forecast API suitable for any cartographic services like web and smartphones applications. Ideology is inspired by OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia that make information free and available for everybody. OpenWeatherMap provides wide range of weather data such as map with current weather, week forecast, precipitation, wind, clouds, data from weather Stations and many others. Weather data is received from global Meteorological broadcast services and more than 40 000 weather stations. The Chowmain Forecast.io and OpenWeatherMap drivers brings all of this data into Control4 for use in the home automation system. This is useful for automating services within the home based upon the external environment. Note that this is not a replacement for a personal weather station. We recommend utilising Extra Vegetables Cumulus Weather Stations or WeatherHawk weather station drivers/hardware if you require accurate readings as this provides accurate real time local weather information. Features Ability to select the Unit type (metric, imperial or internal)Current Weather Conditions for:Temperature (degrees)Humidity (percentage)Pressure (hPa)Wind Speed (mps)Wind Direction (degrees)Clouds (percentage)Precipitation IntensityPrecipitation ProbabilityDew Point (degrees)OzoneWeather Conditions (string)Forecasted Weather Conditions (Today & Tomorrow) for:Temperature MinimumTemperature MaximumHumidity (percentage)PrecipitationWind Speed (mps)Wind Direction (degrees)Pressure (hPa)Clouds (percentage)Moon Phase (percentage)Dew Point (degrees)OzoneWeather Conditions (string)Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Humidifiers can be turned on automatically if it is going to be a dry day,Towel rails can be turned on if its going to be a humid dayIf it is going to be a hot and sunny day, close the shutters to shut the heat outIf it is hotter indoors than it is outdoors and the wind direction is facing the motorised windows then open the windows.If it is going to be a hot day turn on the ACIf it is going to rain don’t automatically water the garden (I would also put in some additional logic to ensure that it will water the garden if it is extremely hot and if it hasn’t watered the garden in X amount of days).If it is going to be a cloudy day and the customer has solar then don’t turn on the smart appliances until tomorrow.Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? Combine with our Advanced Announcements driver to read the weather forecast out in the morning.What hardware will this work on? This will work on any Control4 controller running oS 2.2 or later. Why have two internet weather drivers? Why not? Not all internet weather information is built equally and we want to give you the option of getting one the is the most accurate for your location. One may work better in one country than the other. Two drivers for the price of one! What happens when the API changes? The beautiful thing about the extra vegetables auto-update feature is that driver updates can be pushed out to systems. No dealer intervention needed. Rest assured that should any of these services change their API we will update the driver to match. How do I find out more information about the driver?

This is useful for commercial systems.Frequently Asked Questions Why is this driver called KODI Full? Initially we wanted to make the best KODI driver around however as we kept working on it our aspirations just kept getting higher and higher. As such the development efforts and timeframe has expanded exponentially. To get the driver to market quickly we decided to make two drivers. KODI Lite and KODI Full. Kodi Lite is still one of the best media player drivers on the market with exceptional features. Kodi Full however is THE best media player driver on the market with full library navigation, live meta data, cover art and more. They are both priced accordingly. Some people won't want all the features available in KODI Full so we've made KODI Lite which is priced to suit. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? This driver is the only driver in Control4 which will allow you to browse TV shows, video files, photos, youtube, VEVO and more. No other driver has this functionality.Now with Android support you can purchase Android Set Top Boxes for under $200 that will provide you with the full XBMC experience and Android experience. Play games, surf the web and use XBMC.Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. Also automatically set the cinema to different modes based upon the movie aspect ratio.Setup logic to change your LED lightings colour dependant on the movie name. If you're watching something set in the ocean set it to blue. If you're watching something set in the jungle set it to green or if you're watching something set in the desert set it to orange. It can be very disruptive while watching a movie to have navigator pop up and tell me that someone is at my front door or perhaps i have a new email or something. This driver provides the ability to send Kodi announcements. Like a Control4 Announcement this will pop up a custom message however in this case it will not interrupt the current Kodi activity. It will just pop up in the bottom right hand corner for a few seconds and then hide away.This driver provides two way feedback on what media you're consuming and what the state of the media player is. It will tell you when the movie is playing, paused, stopped or if it is a movie, episode, song or unknown media type. This information is useful for customising your lighting and environment to suit your customer's requirements. The driver has the ability to automatically turn rooms on and off. Using this functionality you can essentially turn on your tv and receiver upon airplay or UPnP photos, video or music playback. If you leave the room for too long or fall asleep at the tv the driver will automatically turn the room off (all av devices off) upon detection of screensaver activation. Some projectors have the option of clearing out the black bars (masking) in movies. This driver reports back the aspect ratio of the video it is currently playing as a variable. Using this information we can automate these projection masking modes and as such make the user experience nicer. This driver has feedback on CPU usage, Memory usage and CPU temperature. This information is extremely important for maintaining the health of the hardware platform it is on. Using this information we can automate shutdowns so that no damage can occur on the device.Browse and search your music and video librarys directly from a Control4 user interface.What hardware will this work on?? This will work on any hardware that KODI supports (Windows, OSX, Linux, Raspberry Pi, Android) running XBMC version 12 (Frodo) & 13 (Gotham) and KODI version 14 (Helix), KODI version 15 (Isengard). Currently we prefer some of the higher end Android boxes and Intel NUC's as it is a more cleaner solution than the others. Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above? This driver utilizes SDK functionality only available in Control4 OS 2.7 and above. Do you offer showroom discounts?

  7. Chowmain - Android Driver The Chowmain Google Android driver is designed to primarily control Google Android Set Top Boxes. This allows you to utilise the Control4 SR-250 remote to navigate the Android operating system and control applications as you would with a normal infra red remote control. It also has the ability to mimic onscreen navigator functionality by using the Control4 application. Note that the Control4 navigator application was not designed to be used via navigational buttons and as such mouse cursor keys will need to be used. This driver also gives the ability to launch applications on first start and through any of the coloured buttons. Note that this driver requires a 3rd party application be installed and configured on a rooted android device. Features One way IP Based communicationsTransport Controls Playback Control Audio End-Point assignment for volume up/down/mute funcitonality Video End-Point assignment Launch applications from coloured buttons, on command or via programming tab SMS stype text entry via numberpad Mouse navigation emulation via number pad Frequently Asked Questions Why would i want to use an android set top box? You can use cheap Android Set Top boxes as media players using apps like XBMC, Plex, Netflix. What cool things can i do with this? You can use this set top box as an onscreen navigator. You can also play games to an certain extent (though it is advised that you utilise a bluetooth controller or an air mouse for a better gaming experience).This driver will also work on a google android tablet. Great for launching intercom, control4, skype and other useful apps on the tablet based upon doorbell presses and other events at your home. How do i use it just for launching appliations on my tablet? Simple. Just set up the driver but not connect any of the AV connections. All programming commands will still work. Why do you only support OS 2.6 and above? OS 2.6 offers a superior security encryption algorithm and a new and improved driver format.

  9. 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. Control4 has done a good job in making a few of the more common devices. We have utilised the no control experience buttons to integrate EVERY video game console ever made. 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. Arcade Games Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Atari 7800 Atari Jaguar Colecovision Microsoft Xbox Microsoft Xbox 360 Microsoft Xbox One NEC PC Engine NEC TurboGrafx Nintendo Entertainment System Super Nintendo Nintendo 64 Nintendo Gamecube Nintendo Wii Nintendo Wii U Odyssey Philips CD-i Sega Master System Sega Master System II Sega Mega Drive Sega Genesis Sega Saturn Sega Dreamcast Sony Playstation Sony PSONE Sony Playstation 2 Sony Playstation 3 Sony PS Vita TV Sony Playstation 4 SNK Neo Geo FAQ Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Make your user interface nicer by adding the correct icons for their video game consoles. The icons when selected will switch to the correct input and will NOT display any controls. Combined with WeMo Insight Switches and our Belkin Wemo driver you can turn on the video game console using your controller and have Control4 automatically turn on the system to the right inputs. Turn off the console using the console's controller or power button and have Control4 automatically turn the room off. All of this is done via power sensing through the outlet.

  10. Hi guys, I know a lot of you already utilise my Kodi Full driver for Control4 but there are a lot of new members on here now looking for media player solutions. Our Kodi Full driver for Control4 is one of our most popular drivers which integrates the Kodi media player with almost every feature. It does so much but today i wanted to focus on the TV show integration as that is one thing that Control4 has been lacking for a long time. Our Kodi Full driver will allow you to browse all the TV shows in your Kodi library. Upon selection of the TV Show it will then bring up all seasons. You can then find out more information about the show by selecting the View Info button or you can select a Season by clicking on the Season. It will then bring up all episodes in that season. If you have watched the episode it will have a tick next to the episode. When you select an episode you can play the episode, view information about the episode or if you are half way through watching you can resume the episode. On top of browsing all tv shows you can also browse by genre, recently added episodes or recently played episodes (my favourite option).

  14. Hi guys, We just did a major update to our Google Android driver. This driver allows Control4 to control the Android STB via IP and also launch applications. With our major update we have now included the ability to view all android applications on Navigator and also add in over 30 mini drivers to the watch menu for quick launch (see screenshot below).
  15. Chowmain - Notification Suite Chowmain's Notification Suite of drivers offers 4 drivers in one package which enhances the way Control4 informs you of events that happen within your home. Pushover Push Notifications are short, simple messages that can be sent to internet connected devices where the request is generated by a central server. Most people are familiar with receiving text messages on their phones. Push Notifications are very similar in appearance and behaviour. Since the request is generated by a server a phone or other device receives the message instantly and does not need to constantly "check-in" which saves battery life and money on other technology like SMS services. The Chowmain Pushover driver for Control4 integrates the Pushover real time notification service into the Control4 home automation system. This provides near instantaneous notifications to your iOS or Android based devices with information about your Control4 enabled home. Usage Scenarios This driver can be used for several different scenarios. Some examples are as below but the limit is really your imagination. Notifying the owner upon door bell press. If you have a IP camera at the front door you can also send the camera snapshot if you know the URL.Notifying the owner upon security system alarmNotifying the owner when the garage door has been left openReminding the owner of special eventsAdvising the owner of the current temperature and power consumption/generation.Advise a owner when they have left the oven onAdvising an owner of when a security system is armed or disarmed and by whom.Advising an owner on potential electrical faults when low or high consumption detected.Features Ability to send a message with the following parameters.Message – This is the message to be sent out from Control4Device – your user's device name to send the message directly to that device, rather than all of the user's devicesTitle – your message's title, otherwise your app's name is usedURL – a supplementary URL to show with your messageURL TITLE – a title for your supplementary URL, otherwise just the URL is shownPriority - This changes the notification/alert sounds and on emergency notification keeps notifying until the user acknowledges by clicking a linkSound – the name of one of the sounds supported by device clients to override the user's default sound choiceAbility to insert Control4 variables into the message, title, url or url title.Ability to upload a local camera snapshotAbility to change the user key via the programming tab.Ability to change the application token via the programming tab.Ability to change the emergency priority retry interval and expiry time (in seconds) via the programming tab.Used for emergency priority intervals / expiriesAbility to see the last sent message via the properties page in Composer Pro.Ability to send Group Notifications to multiple users.Feedback (via properties page and variables)Maximum Number of Messages per MonthMessages Remaining per MonthMessage Reset Date / TimeSMTP The SMTP driver enables you to utilise free SMTP services provided by internet service providers or other providers such as Google. The SMTP driver provides you with an email service that can be replied to, can be formatted with HTML and can attach files to without any ongoing yearly costs. Usage Scenarios Notifying the owner when a door bell is pressed. If you have a IP camera at the front door you can also send the camera snapshot as an attachment.Uploading log files (requires Chowmain event logger driver).Notifying the owner when the garage door has been left openReminding the owner of special eventsAdvising the owner of the current temperature and power consumption/generation.Advise an owner when they have left the oven onAdvising an owner if they have a gas or water leak.Advising an owner of when a security system is armed or disarmed and by whom.Features No 4sight subscription necessaryUse your own SMTP service.Definable PortSupport SSLSupports SMTP AuthenticationDefinable Senders NameDefinable Senders EmailLast Email Recipient FeedbackLast Email Subject FeedbackLast Email Body FeedbackServer Status FeedbackAbility to send a message with the following parameters.To – This is the email address you want to send toSubject – The subject of the emailRecipient Name (optional) – The name of the recipientAttachment – The HTTP URL of a local file on the network. This option will auto download the camera snapshot and attach it to the email to be sent. Great for Camera Snapshots, Chowmain Logs or anything stored on a webserver that you might want to upload!Body – The body of the email. Can support HTML tags as well so you can format your email nicely. Can also support variable insertion.Deviantsart & Chunk.io With the 4sight subscription service Control4 can send email notifications. It can’t however attach camera snapshots to these emails for viewing. Our Deviantsart & Chunk.io drivers for Control4 will download a snapshot from any IP camera with a built in webserver and upload it to the Deviantsart.com or Chunk.io image hosting service. It will then return a URL in a Control4 variable for insertion into your 4sight email or push notification Usage Scenarios Doorbell press sends a image link via 4Sight emailDoorbell press sends a image link via Push notificationSecurity system alarm sends a image link via 4Sight email.Door open sends a photo of person at the door to an email.Features Type in any URL (supports HTTPS, HTTP Auth, different port numbers)Gets the image and uploads it to deviantsart.com or chunk.ioReturns the URL in the Driver’s properties pageReturns the URL as a variableFrequently Asked Questions What makes your push notification driver different from the rest? It supports image uploads! With a single swipe you can see who rang your doorbell or what tripped an sensor in your home.It supports variable insertion. Get notified of the exact temperature of your home or if your security system supports it the name of the person who disarmed or armed your home.If there are any API changes we can easily update it and push it out using the Houselogix auto-update feature.What is the deviantsart & chunk.io drivers for? The drivers will upload an image and return a URL for that image. As such 4sight emails and 3rd party drivers can use the link in their programming. This is useful for new and upcoming notification drivers that have not been created yet or if you want to utilise the 4sight email service. Why should i use the SMTP driver when i have 4sight emails? 4sight requires a subscription. This does not.4sight does not support HTML tags and as such have no formatting4sight emails cannot be replied to. With this you can.4sight emails do not have image/file attachments. With this you can.4sight emails do not let you define the senders name. With this you can.Are there any other cool things we can do with these drivers? The pushover notification service has a plug in for Android tasker. Tasker is a popular automation application for Android which allows you to control alot of the android functionality. So now you can get your home to control your phone. I can think of the following scenarios off the top of my head. Arming/Disarming home - Sets your phone to a different profileGoodnight button - Sets your phone to silent.Wakeup - Sets your phone to normal volume.http://updates.pushover.net/post/83118216460/pushover-for-android-now-with-tasker-support What hardware will this work on?

This is useful for commercial systems.Frequently Asked Questions Why is this driver called KODI Lite? Initially we wanted to make the best KODI driver around however as we kept working on it our aspirations just kept getting higher and higher. As such the development efforts and timeframe has expanded exponentially. To get the driver to market quickly we decided to make two drivers. KODI Lite and KODI Full. Kodi Lite is the (as of date) best media player driver on the market with exceptional features. Kodi Full however will be THE best media player driver ever on the market with full library navigation, live meta data, cover art and more. They will be both priced accordingly. Some people won't want all the features available in KODI Full so we've made KODI Lite which is priced to suit. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Now with Android support you can purchase Android Set Top Boxes for under $200 that will provide you with the full XBMC experience and Android experience. Play games, surf the web and use XBMC.Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. Also automatically set the cinema to different modes based upon the movie aspect ratio.Setup logic to change your LED lightings colour dependant on the movie name. If you're watching something set in the ocean set it to blue. If you're watching something set in the jungle set it to green or if you're watching something set in the desert set it to orange. It can be very disruptive while watching a movie to have navigator pop up and tell me that someone is at my front door or perhaps i have a new email or something. This driver provides the ability to send Kodi announcements. Like a Control4 Announcement this will pop up a custom message however in this case it will not interrupt the current Kodi activity. It will just pop up in the bottom right hand corner for a few seconds and then hide away.This driver provides two way feedback on what media you're consuming and what the state of the media player is. It will tell you when the movie is playing, paused, stopped or if it is a movie, episode, song or unknown media type. This information is useful for customising your lighting and environment to suit your customer's requirements. The driver has the ability to automatically turn rooms on and off. Using this functionality you can essentially turn on your tv and receiver upon airplay or UPnP photos, video or music playback. If you leave the room for too long or fall asleep at the tv the driver will automatically turn the room off (all av devices off) upon detection of screensaver activation. Some projectors have the option of clearing out the black bars (masking) in movies. This driver reports back the aspect ratio of the video it is currently playing as a variable. Using this information we can automate these projection masking modes and as such make the user experience nicer. This driver has feedback on CPU usage, Memory usage and CPU temperature. This information is extremely important for maintaining the health of the hardware platform it is on. Using this information we can automate shutdowns so that no damage can occur on the device. What hardware will this work on?? This will work on any hardware that KODI supports (Windows, OSX, Linux, Raspberry Pi, Android) running XBMC version 12 (Frodo) & 13 (Gotham) and KODI version 14 (Helix). Currently we prefer some of the higher end Android boxes as it is a more cleaner solution than the others. Why do you only support OS 2.6 and above? OS 2.6 offers a superior security encryption algorithm and a new and improved driver format. We have decided to only utilise this new format to ensure that the integrity of this driver is not compremised and that we can provide the best dealer/user experience available. Do you offer showroom discounts? We offer a 10% discount to dealers who want to use this driver in their showroom. Please contact our distributor Houselogix to arrange for this.

  18. Chowmain - Generic Thermostat Driver (IR) Split infrared controlled HVAC systems are quite common in Australia and New Zealand. The issue with these systems is that control is only one way, without any feedback what so ever. Furthermore each IR string contains code information about the mode, fan speed and set point within in. Given this you must learn every single combination of IR code to get full integration into your home automation system. The Chowmain Generic IR Thermostat driver enables us to integrate infrared controlled HVAC systems into the Control4 system with feedback from a dry contact (to sense if it is on/off) and temperature input from the Control4 Thermostat, Axxess Motion Sensors, Card Access Contact Sensor or Relays. This provides a total solution for what would be a one way system. Note this driver is only compatible with HVAC systems that utilize Celsius. The two options we recommend for installation are as follows: * Option A: 'Retrofit' via a card access Zigbee 2 IR device * Option B: 'New Construction' via hard wired connection from a Control4 Controller or IO Extender. In both cases installation is recommended on the interior of the heat pump chassis to ensure a clean look. However if this voids the manufactures warranty a tidy exterior installation can easily be done. Features * Inbuilt Web server for control, setup and backup or IR codes. * Ability to test IR codes via the Web setup page. * Heat, Cool & Auto HVAC modes supported. * Low, Medium, High & Auto Fan modes supported. * 16 – 30 degrees of Set Point supported. * Temperature Feedback from Axxess Motion Sensor, Control4 Thermostat, Card Access Contact Sensor or Card Access Contact Relay. * Power State Feedback via dry contact input. Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? * This driver is extremely useful for countries where IR based HVAC solutions are common. By combining it with 3rd party temperature inputs you get a fully integration IR HVAC solution within Control4. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? * This driver supports an optional contact input. This is useful for when the consumer utilises the existing IR remote control for feedback. It will set the mode to off when the unit shutter closes and to auto at the last setpoint when the unit shutter opens. * This driver has an inbuilt webserver for setup and control. If the client is on their PC they can control their HVAC system by just visiting the URL specified in the properties page of the driver. What hardware will this work on? This will work on all IR based HVAC systems. Note that a 3rd party IR learner is required to learn the codes. Temperature input is compatible with the Control4 Thermostat, Axxess Motion Sensor, Card Access Contact and Card Access Relay. Where do i find IR backup files for existing systems? You can download IR backup files from our website. How do I find out more information about the driver? Please see the links below for more information about the driver.

  20. Chowmain - Saturn South Zigbee Power Meter Driver Set Saturn South specialises in circuit-level switching and metering products for the remote management and monitoring of electrical loads and generators. The Saturn Energy series of products constitute a complete hardware platform for the next generation of Energy Services; including consumer insight into energy consumption, energy efficiency services, and distributed Demand Management programs. These retrofitable ZigBee devices are designed to be installed into switch boards next to each circuit breaker on the din rail. Energy management should be autonomous with little to no interaction from a consumer and by integrating energy monitoring to Control4 the system gets the ability to determine how much a certain circuit is using or generating. Chowmain has integrated the Saturn South SS9000, SS9005 & SS9007 meters into Control4 to enable instantaneous energy monitoring, management and control. Chowmain has also developed a virtual ESBox to simulate ESBox funcitonality to upload data to any ESCo cloud based energy monitoring server. If you connect the devices to the incoming mains Control4 will get insight into how much the whole home is using/generation. If the home is generating and exporting power to the grid it is more beneficial to utilise that energy for services around the home or perhaps store that energy by converting it to heating for your hot water cylinder. It can also add safety to your home by monitoring for high or low voltage peaks/dips or warn the home owner if say an oven or other heavy duty appliance has been left on for extended periods of time. SS9000/SS9007 Features Live Energy Feedback for: Voltage Level Frequency Current & Power usage Power Factor Cumulative Energy Import Cumulative Energy Export Definable Minimum Watt Event Definable Maximum Watt Event On/Off/Toggle for versions with Relay built in Safe State Mode (What happens when communication lost to Control) Relay On Relay Off Relay On (Report) Relay Off (Report) Online Zigbee Firmware Update (via Saturn South Token) Link Quality Indicator Feedback SS9005 Features Live Energy Feedback for: Voltage Level (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Frequency (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Current & Power usage (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Power Factor (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Cumulative Energy Import (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Cumulative Energy Export (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Phase Angle A-B Phase Angle B-C Definable Minimum Watt Event (Phase A, B, C & Total D) Definable Maximum Watt Event (Phase A, B, C & Total D) On/Off/Toggle for versions with Relay built in Safe State Mode (What happens when communication lost to Control) Relay On Relay Off Relay On (Report) Relay Off (Report) Online Zigbee Firmware Update (via Saturn South Token) Link Quality Indicator Feedback Virtual ESBox Features Upload multiple SS9000,SS9005,SS9007, eGauge EG3XXX energy information to an ESco Uploads instant data every 5 seconds Sends a device snapshot every 5 minutes Used to log live and historical data in an ESCo cloud based server. The server will be able to show you live and historical data and depending on the ESCo it may be able to show you how much your energy has cost you. FAQ Where can i purchase the hardware from? Please contact Energis ltd if you want to purchase any Saturn South hardware compatible with Control4. How do i install the hardware? Please refer to the Saturn South Installation Guide for more installation process. How do i view the historical data? This driver can be used with the Virtual ESBox driver to upload data to an ESCo service like OurGreenHome.com.au for recording and viewing of historical data. What benefit do i get from using an ESCo? By using an ESCo you can easily view live usage data and historical data via any web browser in the world. You do not have to be connected to your local network to view this data. This data is quite useful for optimising your energy usage patterns. Why can't i just get an ESBox by itself rather than use Control4? By integrating Saturn South meters into Control4 you can automate your home around energy consumption and generation. This can be turning on heavy duty appliances when high generation is detected or by load shedding when high generation is detected. Can i pair a saturn meter to an ESBox and Control4 at the same time? Zigbee will not allow you to join a device upto multiple meshes. As such we have created this driver to eliminate the ESBox and send the data direct to the ESCo server. How do I find out more information about the driver?

After living with a Kaleidescape system for a month i've come to appreciate that it just works. Compared to other media player solutions it is expensive however for those who do not have the time to mess around Kaleidescape is the solution for you. With 4K, Bluray and DVD based digital downloads, disc importing and playback solutions all in one its a solution that just works. For the dealer it is a solution where they can just install it and leave knowing that the solution is robust and requires little to no support. Why should i use this driver over the official driver? A premium product deserves an excellent interface to match. Since releasing our Kodi Full and Plex Full drivers for Control4 alot of dealers have been asking us to do something similar for Kaleidescape. The problem with the current driver is that it is extremely dated and most consumers expect the ability to search and browse their entire library from their Control4 interface and have the option for a more automated experience. I like the official kaleidescape app. Can i use that? Yes you can. We have set the driver up so that in dedicated theaters you can just pick up your iPad and you can use the official kaleidescape application by itself without ever touching a Control4 user interface. Control4 will automatically turn on the projector, dim the lights, etc when a movie is selected and when a movie has finished it will automatically turn everything off and bring the lights up. Volume control (up, down, mute) is automatically mapped as well. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Use your Control4 touchscreen, Onscreen, mobile or remote control user interfaces to browse movies and music directly from the Control4 user interface. Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. Automate Cinema screen masking and projection modes based on aspect ratio and Cinemascape feedback. Set the driver up so it automatically turns off when the screensaver kicks in. Great if you forget that you've paused a movie or have fallen asleep whilst watching. Setup a button on your onwall keypad to start playback of you or your family’s favourite movie. Great for kids. What hardware will this work on? This driver will work on all IP controllable models of Kaleidescape. If it works with the official Kaleidescape iPad application it will work with our driver.

  23. Chowmain - Pakedge Intelligent PDU The Pakedge Intelligent Power Distribution Units (PDU) are a complete power control solution for A/V networks. It was designed with one function in mind – to keep your power managed devices operating when you want them to, and turned off when you want them to. This is accomplished through a suite of technologies and features that enable the PDU to be monitored, configured and operating autonomously through the local network, or remotely through the cloud Chowmain's Pakedge Intelligent PDU Driver for Control4 allows dealers to control the P2 / P2E / P8 / P8E / P20 / P20E models from Control4 allowing you to switch on, off or toggle an outlet. It should also in theory support furture models should it adhere to the same protocol. This provides effective power management and control. Integration into Control4 enables Control4 to do emergency shutdowns on low or high current or temperature. This ensures that the health of your customer’s expensive rack based equipment is maintained. It is also useful for power management. Reduce the power of your rack by turning on loads as you need them. You may need to reboot a device that has locked up. Sending a technician onsite can be expensive. This driver will enable you to reboot a device remotely via 4sight. An even better solution would be to integrate it with the FREE Chowmain ‘Ping’ driver you can have Control4 automatically monitor devices and have the Pakedge driver automatically reboot the device. Features Dynamically import outlets Detects how many outlets are present on the unit Imports the names of each outlet into the driver’s connections Auto import device details into properties page Serial Number Hardware Version Software Version Mac Address Model Number of Outlets Current Sensor A Current Sensor B Temperature Auto poll for device power consumption (once every 30 seconds). Available in properties page and in Control4 variables. Current Sensor A (in amps/properties, in milliamps/variables) Current Sensor B (in amps/properties, in milliamps/variables) Outlet State Control & Feedback On / Off / Toggle for all outlets (Instant feedback on switch from Control4 or once every 30 seconds when triggered elsewhere) Events Triggered on Min/Max current reached on Frequently Asked Questions What models will this work for? This driver will work with the P2/P2E/P8/P8E/P20/P20E models of PDU's. The driver is designed in a way where it may work with future PDU's as well should they adhere to the current protocol. It is recommended that you test out the driver on newer PDU's that are not listed here prior to licence purchase. Why have you exposed the temperature? Temperature feedback is useful detecting if the rack is over heating. On such a case you can either turn on exhaust fans or turn off equipment. Turning off equipment on overheating prolongs the lifespan of the equipment. Why have you exposes the current? This is useful for detecting faulty equipment that is drawing too much power or if equipment is not drawing enough power. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  24. Chowmain - Daikin Wifi Split System Driver for Control4 HVAC Split System integration has always been painful. As these systems are traditionally IR based dealers usually either integrate presets or learn every single code combination in. 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 Daikin has released its BRP072A42 Wifi module for their Daikin Split HVAC units. This is an extremely cost effective making 2 way integration of HVAC to Control4 with simple plug and play functionality. The Chowmain Daikin Wifi driver integrates the BRP072A42 module and provides full 2 way control over temperature, HVAC mode, setpoint, fan speed, swing direction control. We have also added additional functionality to the driver to handle presets and scheduling internally. Setup of hardware and driver should take you no more than 30 minutes once you get the hang of it. Features Configurable HVAC Modes – OFF, AUTO, HEAT, COOL, FAN, DEHUMDIFICATOR Configurable Fan Speeds – AUTO, SILENT, LOW, LOW/MEDIUM, MEDIUM, MEDIUM/HIGH, HIGH Setpoint Control Swing Direction Control Temperature Feedback Ability to add Presets Ability to perform Scheduling Frequently Asked Questions 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. Temperature feedback from the room has to also be provided by a 3rd party device making the solution costly. Now with the BRP072A42 module installers can now easily integrate Daikin based Split HVAC systems into Control4. The module is extremely affordable and will not void Daikin's manufacturer warranty on the HVAC system. This module is even backwards compatible with older systems. So dealers can now revisit old customers with compatible Daikin HVAC systems to upgrade their home automation system and integrate their HVAC system. This really changes the HVAC game. What HVAC systems can i use this driver with? The BRP072A42 module is developed by Daikin for their Split based HVAC systems. The module will also work with any systems with the S21 port on the indoor PCB. Some Daikin Split Systems (Like the Daikin Zena) also comes preinstalled with this module. Basically if the system is compatible with the D-Mobile iOS or Android application it will work. If in doubt please contact Daikin to confirm if your HVAC system will be compatible if in doubt. NOTE. This module will not work with Daikin Ducted, Cassette or VRV Indoor HVAC systems. For those HVAC systems see our Daikin Skyfi Driver. Can i control fan direction with this? Yes our driver allows for swing 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? The module can be purchased from authorised Daikin dealers. The model number is BRP072A42. If you cannot source one easily then we recommend purchasing one online from Peninsula Air Conditioning Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above? This driver requires functionality that is only available in OS 2.7. As such this driver will not work in earlier versions of Control4 OS. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  25. Chowmain - Daikin SkyFi (Ducted & Cassette HVAC) Driver HVAC installation in the United States is easy as thermostats all utilise a universal standard and as such can be replaced easily by a 3rd party thermostat such as Control4’s thermostat. Unfortunately HVAC manufacturers outside of the United States do not always utilise this standard and some countries like Australia and New Zealand have proprietary RS485 based bus’s that are specific to the HVAC manufacturer and model. 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 Daikin has released its SkyFi module for their Daikin Ducted, Sky Air and certain VRV indoor units (with P1 and P2 terminals). Unlike other solutions this unit is manufactured by Daikin and as such will not void the warranty of the HVAC system should you connect it to their bus. It is also extremely cost effective making integration of HVAC to Control4 so affordable that integration of HVAC becomes a no brainer. The Chowmain Daikin SkyFi driver integrates the SkyFi module and provides full 2 way control over temperature, HVAC mode, setpoint, fan speed, timer functions and zone control. Setup of hardware and driver should take you no more than 30 minutes once you get the hang of it. Features HVAC Modes – OFF, AUTO, HEAT, COOL, DRY, FAN, HEAT/AUTO, COOL/AUTO FAN Speeds – LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, LOW/AUTO, MEDIUM/AUTO, HIGH/AUTO Temperature Feedback Setpoint Control Zone Name import * Zone On/Off (Open/Shut) * Timer Function (Turn on system in x hours and off in x hours). Outside Temperature Feedback * Filter Clean Notification on Navigator. * If fitted to the HVAC system. Frequently Asked Questions 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. In order to integrate HVAC you had to install commercial grade HVAC solutions and get additional modules. There was no definitive and easy way to know if a HVAC solution was going to work without consulting a HVAC installer. To put it simple it was just too hard and too expensive to integrate HVAC. Now with the SkiFi module installers can now easily integrate Daikin based Ducted and Cassette based HVAC systems into Control4. The module is extremely affordable and will not void Daikin's manufacturer warranty on the HVAC system. This module is even backwards compatible with systems dated back to 2003. So dealers can now revisit old customers with compatible Daikin HVAC systems to upgrade their home automation system and integrate their HVAC system. This really changes the HVAC game. What HVAC systems can i use the SkyFi with? The SkyFi module is developed by Daikin for their Ducted, Ducted with Zone Control and Cassette/Under Ceiling based HVAC systems. The SkyFi module will also work with VRV indoor systems with the P1-P2 terminals for a wired remote control. This should work with any of these systems that are manufacturered after 2003. Please contact Daikin to confirm if your HVAC system will be compatible if in doubt. NOTE. This module will not work with Daikin Split HVAC systems. For Split HVAC systems see our Daikin Wifi Driver. Can i control zones with this? This module will allow for zone damper open and close via the Extras tab with 2 way feedback. The driver will pull in the zone names on first setup. Please name the zones using the official Daikin SkyFi application prior to installing the driver. Can i get individual temperature readings per zone? The Daikin Skyfi unit provides a single temperature reading for feedback. It does not provide individual zone readings. This is a limitation of the hardware. Can i do schedule the HVAC system using this? The SkyFi module offers basic timer based on/off functionality. This functionality is included with the driver on the Extras tab in the driver's navigator interface and is designed to mimic the SkyFi smart phone application. You can also utilise Control4's wakeup agent or scheduler in Composer Home Edition. Where can i purchase this module? The module can be purchased from authorised Daikin dealers. The model number is BRP15A61. If you cannot source one easily then we recommend purchasing one online from Peninsula Air Conditioning Why do you only support OS 2.6 and above? OS 2.6 offers a superior security encryption algorithm and a new and improved driver format. We have decided to only utilise this new format to ensure that the integrity of this driver is not compremised and that we can provide the best dealer/user experience available.
