thecodeman Posted September 21, 2009 Share Posted September 21, 2009 There's not a way to create a poll on this forum, that I can see... but we're going to be doing some R&D on creating drivers for third party products and want to know which ones are in demand. We can't really do anything for HVAC, since that's not an easy one to do on the bench - and are more focused on a/v gear, etc. So to start it off here are a few that we have in mind, in no particular order:Popcorn Hour two-way driverLogitech Squeezebox two-way driver - specifically the TransporterSonos two-way driverBoxee two-way driverAny others? Network cameras? Receiver lines? etc?I'll have access to a PCH soon so hopefully we can get started on it. I'll let this run for about a week and will update this post with # of votes for the devices. We will probably do one each quarter. This will be a multi-dealer collaboration so if any other dealers want to get involved and have skills or gear to offer drop us a line. We all know the better the integration is, the more Control4 will sell.Poll results:Updated 9150 Driver - 2 votestwo-way Rako light driver - 1 votePlex for Mac Mini two way - 4 votesPCH-200 two-way driver - 2 votesSonos driver - 3 votes (I voted for wappinghigh while he's on vacation, we're buddies now )Denon x10 series driver - 2 votesBoxee - 1 voteOnkyo 605 driver fix - 1 voteNew integra line of receivers - 1 voteSolutions:Rako light driver - Rako is a British based lighting system that is mainly wireless based. Ideal for retrofits it includes dimmers, relays and 0-10V control devices. This makes it more flexible than the current Control4 retrofit solution which doesn't include relays or 0-10v dimmers. Rako switches are also wireless and require no cables at all. The Rako Control4 driverworks driver provides two-way control of the Rako lighting. From within Control4 you can define the Rako dimmers and switches and then use the familiar Control4 lighting interfaces and scenes. Rako lighting does not provide feedback of the lighting levels of each dimmer (this is a Lutron patent). However the driver does allow Control4 to respond to key presses on the Rako keypads. This allows a full two way lighting system to be created.Full documentation is supplied. Example Control4 configuration included within the package.The driver is provided by ExtraVegetables and costs 100 sterling pounds + VAT and is sold only to Control4 dealers. This cost does not include the time and labor of your dealer setting it up in your system. Contact your dealer for more information, and if they don't know about it I can pass along contact information. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
