  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. Two way feedback for client state (Play, Pause, Stop, Playing Video, Playing Music, Playing Photo, In Navigation) Can be setup for any Plex Client including Plex Home Theater, Plex Media Player, Plex for Roku, Plex for Amazon Fire TV and Plex for /Android TV's. Ability to launch Plex on Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices. Upon media playback the driver will launch Plex on the device, wait for it to startup and then start playback. 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? All Chowmain drivers for Control4 come with a 48 hour trial. This is activated once you add the driver to the project. No additional steps are necessary.

  2. I have created a proxy driver to control 4 relays. 5 connections: Connection 1 for RS232; Connection 2, 3, 4, 5 for Light (V2) devices. Everything is working well including scenes, etc. The only thing is the UI updating on the various IOS devices. According to Proxy and Protocol Guide 2.9.0 Lighting (V2) protocol Notifications the following should be used to notify the light on binding 2 is OFF or ON: C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL",0,"NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL",100,"NOTIFY") Neither changes the state of the lights on the UI or in Composer. I have tried various combinations such as local tParams = {} tParams["LEVEL"] = 0 tParams["STATE"] = "off" C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL",0,"NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL","0","NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL",tParams,"NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL", {LEVEL=0}, "NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2,"LIGHT_LEVEL_CHANGED",tParams,"NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2, "LIGHT_LEVEL_CHANGED", {LEVEL=0}, "NOTIFY") C4:SendToProxy(2, "LIGHT_LEVEL_CHANGED", 0 , "NOTIFY")
  3. Greetings, Can anyone please tell me if drivers exist for the following items: - MAG 254 IPTV Set Top Box by Infomir - CYP PU-424HBTE 4 x 4 HDMI HDBaseT 5-Play Matrix - CYP PU-8H8HBTE 8 x 8 HDMI HDBaset 5-Play matrix - Android 5.1 TV Box Thankyou
  4. Hi all, I posted about a couple of other drivers I wrote and unfortunately I have not been getting much interest in them. If anyone knows of a better place to find beta testers for drivers please let me know. Anyway, hopefully this is something more people will be interested in. It's a driver that uses the "Find My iPhone" service from apple to detect your location and trigger events. You don't have to run any software on your Apple device other than the built in Find My iPhone service so there are no settings to mess with on your iPhone, iPad, etc. Events can be triggered when you arrive or leave up to six different locations per device. For example you can trigger lights to turn on when you arrive home and turn off when you leave home. You could also trigger the heating or cooling to turn on when you leave from work so the house is comfortable when you arrive home. Let me know if you are interested in helping me test it out. Phil 1/12/14 UPDATE: The driver is now available for sale at Synapse Home Automation. There is a free trial as well.
  5. From the makers of the Amazon Echo driver for Control4... We have just released our driver for the August Smart Lock (http://www.august.com/products/august-smart-lock). It is similar to other lock control drivers in that it enables control and display of August Lock status from within Control4 UI's and programming by binding to a Generic Door Lock relay driver. The driver requires that one has an August Connect, which allows the Bluetooth lock to connect to the IP network and be cloud-enabled. Our driver uses the cloud interface to connect to the lock of course. The driver can be purchased from www.epic-systems.com. Enjoy!

  9. Epic Systems has just released our driver for Google Home! If you have used our driver for Amazon Echo, you will feel right at home. It works in a very similar fashion, with some added benefits: -Does not require any actions from within composer in order to discover devices. Just link the Google Home to our driver once, and then after that, any new triggers or removed triggers will automatically synch with the Home in a matter of a second or two -Side benefit of using Google Home - it has much fewer restrictions on reserved words. I have successfully implemented trigger phrases such as "shades", "blinds", "CNN", "ESPN", several other channel names, several individual Artist names, etc. -Another side benefit - Google Home responds with "Sure, turning the <trigger name> On/Off", instead of just "okay". The driver can be purchased now on www.epic-systems.com I recorded a video showing how easy and quick it is to setup and program the driver (embedded on the product page for the driver). As with our Echo driver, no 4sight license is required, and no 3rd party cloud-based services are required (other than what Google Home itself needs to operate itself). As a result, it is extremely fast, and extremely reliable! Enjoy!
  10. Hi guys, Its rare that i'm excited about a driver (i build them everyday) but this driver here adds so much to Control4 especially to those of you who have Composer Home Edition. This driver is pretty much ready for release. I'm just putting the final touches on the documentation so once thats complete it'll be ready for everyone to use. The IFTTT maker driver is a bi-directional driver which adds communications from Control4 to IFTTT to control any service or product on IFTTT and vice versa. You can replace quite a few outbound services by having Control4 send emails, push notifications, SMS's and more to IFTTT (it pretty much replaces the majority of the functionality of our Notification Suite and Control4's 4sight). It also does the same thing as many other 3rd party inbound services like Geofencing drivers, Amazon Alexa drivers, various Calandar drivers and more. Here are some examples of what you can achieve but at the end of the day its really upto your imagination. Lastly a big thanks to Mitch for helping me out with brainstorming with me and testing the driver. Without him the driver wouldn't be as fast and responsive as it is today. Outbound Examples (Control4 > IFTTT) Control4 can send SMS’s via your Android phone (IF app must be downloaded to the phone) Control4 can call your phone number and say a message (for security alarms, smoke alarms and other emergencies). Control4 can save data about the events in your home in google docs or dropbox. Control4 can save data about the events in your home to IFTTT’s daily or weekly email digest. Control4 can send emails out without 4sight or 3rd party driver Control4 can send push notifications out without 4sight or 3rd party driver (using pushalot, pushbullet or pushover) Control4 can send Skype messages Control4 can send Google Glass notifications (with Message, Image URL and URL fields). Control4 can send notifications to your Android wear device (requires IF app installed). Control4 can send your BMW (Connected Drive Compatible) a message on your car’s front screen display (120 characters limited) Control4 can find lost items (needs tags) or phones (call your phone). Control4 can send your Tesla (EVE enabled) a message (with subject, message and message type fields) on your car’s dashboard Control4 can turn on or off your GE Smart Appliance and more. Control4 can tell your Android phone to turn on/off Bluetooth or wifi (might be useful when you’re leaving or coming back home). Tell the world via Facebook what your home is upto (might not be a good idea). When batteries are low on your Control4 sensors add a reminder to your IOS reminders app. Inbound Examples (IFTTT > Control4) Amazon Alexa (Amazon Echo, Tap, etc) can send commands to Control4 via voice recognition to do things like turn lights on, play music, house off and more. Assissant.ai can send commands to Control4 via voice recognition Control4 can read out stock prices or notify you when they raise or lower (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements Driver) Control4 can pause your music and videos when you answer your phone (android only) Control4 can read out tweets when someone mentions you on twitter (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements Driver) Control4 can detect if a specific person has entered or left a room/zone using beacons. iOS Location and Android Location (via the IF app) can tell Control4 when you are approaching or leaving home. Send a warning to Control4 when something has been picked up or moved (needs wireless tag) Your BMW (Connected Drive Compatible) can tell Control4 when it is entering or exiting an area. Your EVE enabled Tesla car can tell Control4 when it has arrived home, is leaving home or on the way home. Your Automatic, Zubie or Dash enabled car can tell Conrol4 when you have turned the car on or off within a certain area. Your GE, LG and Samsung Smart appliances can tell Control4 when it has been turned on, off, if for example an oven timer is done, if there is a leak in the dishwasher, if the filter needs cleaning, if the dryer cycle has finished, if the fridge door has been left open for too long, Your Nest Protect smoke alarm can send Control4 smoke emergency, warning and carbon monoxide emergencies Your Netatmo Welcome can tell Control4 when a specific person, known person or even an unknown person has been seen or arrives home (facial recognition) Your Roost Smart Battery can tell Control4 (via the announcement agent) when its battery is low (Great for smoke alarms). Control Control4 via SMS or phone call to IFTTT. Have Control4 read out your meetings (including subject, body & location) on outlook 365 calendar or Google calendar 15 minutes before the meeting (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements driver) If the temperature (via weather forecast/conditions) changes in your area tell Control4 to do something. Your Android phone can tell Control4 when it has connected or disconnected to/from a specific Wifi network. Change the colours of your RGB LED’s to your teams colour using the ESPN channel when the game starts.
  11. Hi, newb here. Please be nice. At my parent's house and they know very little about their C4 system. It's about 5 years old and they've never updated, making my learning process pretty difficult. So that's where I would like to start. Attached a screenshot from the app with basic specs. Is updating the driver something a basic consumer can do? Or does it require a tech visit? I've tried combing google + these forums and the curve is a bit steep. If someone could point me to a basic tutorial on updating (for the layman) to get me up to speed, would greatly appreciate it. thanks, dburk
  12. Since unveiling Josh.ai at CEDIA a few months ago we've received numerous requests for a C4 driver. I just wanted to post here that the driver is almost ready and we're quite happy with how it's turning out. If you're not familiar with Josh.ai, check out http://josh.ai to see a video and get some info. Happy to answer questions here or by email at alex@josh.ai. Right now we're very much focused on the high-end of the market in terms of dealers and pricing (typically 8-10,000+ sqft homes), but we'll be unveiling a number of new products in 2017 we're pretty excited about. For now we're very happy to integrate nicely with C4!

  14. In case you haven't heard yet...we have released a really really cool, simple yet extremely powerful driver for the Amazon Echo. In a nutshell, it allows you to define custom keyword "triggers"...such as "kitchen", "house", "TV", "downstairs", "master blinds", etc...(you can create whatever keywords you like, other than a few words which are reserved by the Echo, such as "play", "pandora", etc.) For each trigger that you define, you can program any control4 activities to take place (activate a lighting scene, raise blinds, turn on TV to specific channel, etc...anything that can be controlled via your control4 system based on whatever components you have installed). For example...you can say "Alexa, turn on downstairs", or "Alexa, dim (or brighten) the kitchen", or "Alexa, turn off the house"... and have those commands trigger any programming that you desire in Control4. Here are a couple videos of the driver in action: Comet Smart Homes Video Video 1 Video 2 As with any driver, you will need your dealer to add the driver to your project and configure it to work with your Echo(s). The driver can be purchased from www.epic-systems.com Thanks! -Ari Download Driver Documentation Download 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? We offer dealers a free showroom licence for demonstration and educational purposes. See link below for T&C's and signup procedure.

  17. Anyone have a working driver for Samsung bd-jm57c. I would appreciate it. Thanks
  18. OK, I figured out I posted in this "Push the Envelope" area some threads that actually aren't pushing anything. Apologies about that. Maybe this one will do though :-) Background: I have 3 cats at home that are wearing RFID tags. Each tag opens each cat's own bowl since they are on different prescription diets. I wonder if there is a way to set up an RFID reader (well, some of them) around the house to have cat's passage fire a C4 event? It seems to me that there are only enterprise RFID implementations available, which actually makes sense :-) However I would like to experiment with some unexpensive RFID readers if there's something that works with or can be integrated with Control4. Any hint appreciated!! Thanks, Rick
  19. Hi I am considering a Shinybow 8 x 8 hdmi matrix - but my installer is unsure if there is a C4 driver for it. Anyone know if there is a suitable driver? Or have used/is using this product? I have found a link here http://www.shinybowusa.com/control4.html that shows available drivers. Thanks! I am trying to reduce costs from a suggested $10000 8 x 8 matrix http://www.hdtvsupply.com/shinybow-sb-5688ak.html
  20. I just upgraded to this projector from my 6030 yesterday. So far enjoying the picture and the nice upgrades. I see that it now supports a LAN connection in the back. Wireless is available with a wireless USB module. I noticed in the menu there is the ability to turn on Control 4 SDDP discovery. Can anyone confirm that there is a Control 4 bidirectional IP driver available and how well it works? It will be nice to move off the Epson 6020 IR drivers I've been using to date, which are unreliable for turning the projector off in some AV modes. Thanks!
  21. Can we please get the downloads section updated to allow c4z uploading?
  22. I'm using SDDP to install the driver for Sony KD-55X8500D but got the following error message (See attached Image) Please advice
  23. Hi guys, We just released a FREE Control4 driver that updates your Sky pay tv channel icons automatically. Will only import the channels that you have a subscription to (requires username and password). No more media list updates when Sky changes its channel numbers, adds/removes channels or the account holder adds/removes packages from their service. All we ask in return is that you check out our other drivers on our website. We are passionate about Control4 and there are a lot of cool drivers that add functionality to Control4 which you may like. Note as a free driver it comes as is and without support. http://www.chowmain.co.nz/mysky-driver
  24. Chowmain - Control By Web Driver Set ControlByWeb manufactures IP based monitoring and control devices that provide various inputs and outputs such as relays, digital inputs, analog inputs, 1-wire bus for monitoring of temperature & humidity, etc. Chowmain has integrated the X-310 and X-320 ControlByWeb devices into Control4 to expose their IO's for various integration requirements. X-310 Features 4 x relay outputs 4 x sensor inputs - NOTE – Control4 polls the sensors. As such it may take upto 5 seconds for the input to respond. Do not use the inputs if timing is crucial. Exposes values to variables for programming Last Poll Time Serial Number Onboard Timestamp Internal Temperature Memory Power Up Flag Device Power Up Flag Power Loss Counter Input 1 State Input 2 State Input 3 State Input 4 State Relay 1 State Relay 2 State Relay 3 State Relay 4 State High Time 1 High Time 2 Raw Count 1 Raw Count 2 Voltage Input Voltage Input Alarm Units Sensor 1 Temp Sensor 2 Temp Sensor 3 Temp Sensor 4 Temp Sensor 1 Alarm Sensor 2 Alarm Sensor 3 Alarm Sensor 4 Alarm Count 1 Count 2 Extra Variable 0 Extra Variable 1 Extra Variable 2 Extra Variable 3 Programming Actions Ability to clear memory flag Ability to clear device flag Ability to clear power loss counter X-320 Features 2 x Configurable GPIOs - Can be configured in either inputs or outputs Exposes values to variables for programming Last Poll Time Serial Number Onboard Timestamp Internal Temperature Internal Voltage Memory Power Up Flag Device Power Up Flag Power Loss Counter IO1 State IO2 State IO1 Direction IO2 Direction High Time 1 High Time 2 Raw Count 1 Raw Count 2 Rate 1 Rate 2 Raw Frequency Frequency Frequency Alarm Analog 1 State Analog 2 State Analog 3 State Analog 4 State Analog 1 Alarm Analog 2 Alarm Analog 3 Alarm Analog 4 Alarm Units Sensor 1 Temp Sensor 2 Temp Sensor 3 Temp Sensor 4 Temp Sensor 5 Temp Sensor 6 Temp Sensor 1 Alarm Sensor 2 Alarm Sensor 3 Alarm Sensor 4 Alarm Sensor 5 Alarm Sensor 6 Alarm Extra Variable 0 Extra Variable 1 Extra Variable 2 Extra Variable 3 Programming Actions Ability to clear memory flag Ability to clear device flag Ability to clear power loss counter FAQ What can i use this for? These products are good for adding additional contacts, relays, temperature sensors and other analog sensors that are not native to Control4. What models will this work for? We have currently integrated the X-310 and X-320 models. We have a X-332 on order so we will be adding that to this driver licence shortly. We are looking at integrating other models as well so if you have one let us know and we'll work with you to integrate it. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  25. Epic Systems has released version 110 of our Amazon Echo Driver! This version includes some valuable enhancements: 1) Addition of a "Set" event type which is auto-generated for each trigger word/phrase that you define (in addition to On, Off, Up, & Down events). This enables you to tell Alexa to "Set <trigger name> to <value between 1 and 100%>, such as "Alexa, set living room to 70". This can be used for setting levels for volume, lighting, TV channels, thermostat, and more. 2) Removal of current 30-trigger limit. You can have as many triggers as you want (although Echo may complain during discovery, they will be discovered just fine - Echo bug...) 3) Print triggers Action button - for printing of list of triggers for jumpstarting of documentation, if desired. Version 110 can now be downloaded from the Echo Driver product page on our website. In addition, we have created 2 short (approximately 10 minutes) videos showing how to setup and program the driver. Download Links (Driver & Documentation): http://www.epic-systems.com/products/amazon-echo-driver-for-control4 Videos: http://www.epic-systems.com To celebrate the release of this new version, we are offering a limited time promotion to receive 20% off of the driver.
