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?

After living with a Kaleidescape system for a month i've come to appreciate that it just works. Compared to other media player solutions it is expensive however for those who do not have the time to mess around Kaleidescape is the solution for you. With 4K, Bluray and DVD based digital downloads, disc importing and playback solutions all in one its a solution that just works. For the dealer it is a solution where they can just install it and leave knowing that the solution is robust and requires little to no support. Why should i use this driver over the official driver? A premium product deserves an excellent interface to match. Since releasing our Kodi Full and Plex Full drivers for Control4 alot of dealers have been asking us to do something similar for Kaleidescape. The problem with the current driver is that it is extremely dated and most consumers expect the ability to search and browse their entire library from their Control4 interface and have the option for a more automated experience. I like the official kaleidescape app. Can i use that? Yes you can. We have set the driver up so that in dedicated theaters you can just pick up your iPad and you can use the official kaleidescape application by itself without ever touching a Control4 user interface. Control4 will automatically turn on the projector, dim the lights, etc when a movie is selected and when a movie has finished it will automatically turn everything off and bring the lights up. Volume control (up, down, mute) is automatically mapped as well. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Use your Control4 touchscreen, Onscreen, mobile or remote control user interfaces to browse movies and music directly from the Control4 user interface. 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. Automate Cinema screen masking and projection modes based on aspect ratio and Cinemascape feedback. Set the driver up so it automatically turns off when the screensaver kicks in. Great if you forget that you've paused a movie or have fallen asleep whilst watching. Setup a button on your onwall keypad to start playback of you or your family’s favourite movie. Great for kids. What hardware will this work on? This driver will work on all IP controllable models of Kaleidescape. If it works with the official Kaleidescape iPad application it will work with our driver. I am not a Kaleidescape dealer. Where can i get the product from? We can assist you with signing up to become an official Kaleidescape dealer. Just click on the link below and fill out the form and a representative will contact you shortly. Sign Up Why do you only support OS 2.8 and above?

Unfortunately this device is not available to the majority of the world as it only supports 120VAC voltage for US plug type devices. Introducing the tp-link HSXXX series of Wi-Fi smart plugs. It has plug types and regulatory compliance for the majority of the world and is extremely affordable. This WiFi based power outlet supports up to 10amps and can be easily integrated into the Control4 home automation system using the Chowmain TP-Link HSXXX driver. The HS110 & HS300 versions can be utilised for energy monitoring and management using our driver and Control4. It can also be useful for device health monitoring and also for automatic selection of manually controlled AV devices like Playstation 4’s, Xbox One’s and the Nintendo Switch.

Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? In Australia we do not have access to the Control4 outlet switch.

As such you can get the correct icon on your navigator and also bind it to your AV device to minimise standby power. This driver can also detect power usage statistics from the HS110 outlet. This can be useful for programming energy management based actions. This driver allows connection to any Control4 keypad for ease of use programming.
