  1. Chowmain - Sky+HD / SkyQ / Sky Q Mini for Control4 Sky is a British satellite broadcast service provider. Chowmain has developed an IP based driver that provides control over UK based Sky set top boxes. This IP driver eliminates the need to attach infra red emitters to the set top box and is compatible with the Sky+ HD, Sky Q and Sky Q mini boxes. On top of IP control the driver also provides automatic channel media list updates for Control4. This ensures that the channel listing on Control4's user interface is always upto date with the latest channels for that particular region. Features No more IR buds 3-10 times faster than IR control Channel selection from navigator Automatic Channel list update - Always have upto date channels on your Control4 navigator. Never be effected by channel number changes or when Sky adds or removes a channel again. Select your region and have all the Sky channels automatically import periodically for your area. Select your period (Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Fortnightly, Monthly) or you can also manually update via programming action (tie it to a custom button or experience button).

  3. Chowmain - Advanced Custom Buttons Driver / App Control4’s custom button agent allows you to add in additional buttons to your navigator screen. This makes it simple to add functionality that is not native or intuitive to Control4’s user interface. There are some issues with using the custom button agent. Mainly because it gives no feedback as to what the state is or if the action has been completed successfully. Chowmain has developed the Advanced Custom Buttons driver/app for Control4’s 5”, 7”, HTML5 web browsers and MyHome navigator user interfaces to provide a solution to this problem. Note the Onscreen Navigator is currently not supported. Features Maximum of 12 Custom Buttons Programmable labels for each button - If empty the button will disappear. Great for multi-state buttons or modes. Virtual LED feedback - On/Off LED feedback gives the user an indication as to what the state is of the device they are controlling or the state of the system or actions. Graphics that match Control4’s UI - Designed to mimic Control4’s lighting scene buttons the button design blends in with Control4 seamlessly. Web UI via inbuilt HTML5 based webserver in driver.Works with Android Wear with third party app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appfour.wearbrowser&hl=en) Works with Apple Watch with third party app (https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/home-remote-home-automation/id926193671?mt=8) Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? * This driver is great for scenarios where you need feedback for your custom button. For example a button for holiday mode or automation mode where you need to know the state of a varible. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? * As this driver allows for dynamic labelling you can essentially expand this to an infinite amount of buttons by using one or two buttons to cycle through different pages. This will relabel and repurpose buttons for different uses. * The driver has a built in webserver which mimics the 4store application with dynamic labelling, led feedback and control. The app utilises AJAX to communicate to the driver and polls it every 3 seconds for its state. As such you can run the application on any web browser that supports HTML5 and even fire off commands from other applications or scripts to trigger the button (eg <http://192.168.0.250:51816/PressButton.html?button=0>) What hardware will this work on? This driver/app will work on Control4 5 inch, 7 inch and MyHome PC navigators. Note you will need to install the driver first before downloading the app. Note this will not work on the onscreen navigator. How do I find out more information about the driver?

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

  5. Chowmain - Contact Us app for T3 touchscreens As of OS 2.9.0 Control4 introduced the new webview driver. This webview driver allows Control4 T3 touchscreens to display a webpage for interaction with the customer. We have taken advantage of this architecture to develop some custom applications for the T3 touchscreens. The Contact Us webview driver for Control4 provides dealers with a professional looking contact us page on the T3 touchscreen with customisable company logo, company contact details, google map and clickable URL to the company website. This adds the final touch to a professionally installed system and provides dealers with a cheap way of marketing their company to people who utilise the touchscreen including guests/visitors or if even the next homeowner should your customer sell their home. Features Works on all T3 touchscreens. Can be customised using only the driver's properties Company Name Company Address Company Latitude (this I used for google maps. If nothing is entered it is replaced by an envelope icon). Company Longitude (this I used for google maps. If nothing is entered it is replaced by an envelope icon). Company Phone Number Company Email Company Logo URL (this is used to place a logo on the touchscreen. If nothing is entered then it is replaced by the Company Name) Company Website Touching the company website URL redirects to the URL. Control4 has made it a policy that all web assets must be hosted externally to the controller. As such this application requires an active internet connection to access the application each time it runs. All personal data is stored on the local Control4 controller. FAQ Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Put your company information on all your Control4 jobs (requires T3 touchscreen). Add in job specific instructions / troubleshooting steps into the Summary section. Redirect to your company's website when the customer clicks on a URL. How do i obtain the latitude and longitude? This information can be obtained from google maps. Just enter in your address and you can see the information on the marker or URL. How do i use the Logo URL? You will need to upload your logo to a web service that can be accessed directly via a URL. If you do not have such a service then please contact us and we can assist.

  6. 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.

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. 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.

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.

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

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.

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?

  21. 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 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?

  25. 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.
