  1. annex⁴ is looking for a few people interested in beta testing a Hunter Douglas PowerView driver with individual shade control. If you are interested send us a PM with the type of shades you have, we are looking to confirm functionality on all shade types.
  2. Epic Systems has just released an IP driver for Rachio irrigation controllers. In addition to having some additional functionality that is not included with the Houselogix Rachio driver (such as reading in zone names, and being able to turn features on and off), ours is significantly less expensive - currently priced at $75! https://www.epic-systems.com/products/rachio-irrigation-controller-driver-for-control4
  3. 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?

  4. 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!
  5. 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?

  11. I'm very new to this. I have a denon avr-s710w receiver. I can't find a certified driver on the control4 website. I've searched this forum and other places on the internet and can't seem to find a definitive answer. Is it possible to use this receiver with control4? I've read that it can be connected via IP. I don't know what that means. Does it change the functionality of the receiver? I've also read that a receiver with similar features' driver can be used. Does anyone know which denon receiver driver would work best? I want to be able to request my installer set it up right the first time. Thanks!
  12. It would seem that as of February 28th 2017, Spotify will cease to work on all Sonos systems NOT updated to v7. As Sonos v7 and up systems already didn't work for Spotify on the old upnp driver, this will effectively mean the old upnp/EV (non - endorsed) driver will completely fail to work with Spotify. Just a heads up.

  19. 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.

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.

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?

  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. 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!
  22. 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.
