Control4 3.0

38 posts in this topic

I had my Control4 installer here yesterday and he mentioned that Control4 will be sending out their new 3.0 updates out before CES comes at the end of September.  Anyone else hear about this?  I haven't found any news of it on the web...

Just want to see if others have heard of this.

Ok, so I heard them wrong and thought it was CES.  So anyone here know more about this?  Any screenshots of what it may look like?

If you are expecting version 3.0 you will be very disappointed.

based on what comparison? 

Im not basing this off any comparison.  Control4 has been fairly stagnant in innovation the last several years in both hardware and software.  They had a history of industry innovation previously.  It hasn't yet cost them much market share, but I fear that if another company starts to innovate C4 will suffer.  Maybe I'm wrong and there will be big announcements at Cedia.

They released a new line of controllers and touch panels that run on an entirely different operating system to have a stronger foundation, apple watch support, alexa, 4k, sounds like they will add google home natively, just to name a few that quickly come to mind. If you dont have any other company to compare it to then you have no basis. URC was really the one to make a move in C4s consumer base with Total Control and they are very far from being a contender. C4 isnt perfect and i am dissapointed with the native z-wave since there are tons of devices that arent supported but compared to what is available it moved with the rest of the industry quite well in my opinion. Also the 3rd party guys do a good job filling the holes to support things that c4 doesnt right out of the box.

so with no basis of comparison, i don't know how you come to a conclusion that is based on fact.  It's your opinion....

It is exactly my opinion.  You get upset too easily.  We are allowed to discuss our opinions here. You are permitted to have your opinion with rainbow glasses if you desire.  You obviously disagree with my opinion and that's fine.

It hasn't cost Control4 ANY market share, because Control4 is growing its market share.

What exactly was Control4's 'history of industry innovation'? I'm about the biggest C4 fan out there, but it's not C4's role to INNOVATE. It is not an innovation company, it's a company that delivers a solid product, at a solid price, with minimal hassle. It's the ball-peen hammer in your toolbox, not the hypersonic escrewdriver.

Looking forward to a new remote 😎

I just wish for volume feedback... Not sure why this has not been implemented yet.

There is 2 way volume but it depends on the device.
