  2. Chowmain - Daikin Wifi Split System Driver for Control4 HVAC Split System integration has always been painful. As these systems are traditionally IR based dealers usually either integrate presets or learn every single code combination in. 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 Daikin has released its BRP072A42 Wifi module for their Daikin Split HVAC units. This is an extremely cost effective making 2 way integration of HVAC to Control4 with simple plug and play functionality. The Chowmain Daikin Wifi driver integrates the BRP072A42 module and provides full 2 way control over temperature, HVAC mode, setpoint, fan speed, swing direction control. We have also added additional functionality to the driver to handle presets and scheduling internally. Setup of hardware and driver should take you no more than 30 minutes once you get the hang of it. Features Configurable HVAC Modes – OFF, AUTO, HEAT, COOL, FAN, DEHUMDIFICATOR Configurable Fan Speeds – AUTO, SILENT, LOW, LOW/MEDIUM, MEDIUM, MEDIUM/HIGH, HIGH Setpoint Control Swing Direction Control Temperature Feedback Ability to add Presets Ability to perform Scheduling Frequently Asked Questions 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. Temperature feedback from the room has to also be provided by a 3rd party device making the solution costly. Now with the BRP072A42 module installers can now easily integrate Daikin based Split HVAC systems into Control4. The module is extremely affordable and will not void Daikin's manufacturer warranty on the HVAC system. This module is even backwards compatible with older systems. So dealers can now revisit old customers with compatible Daikin HVAC systems to upgrade their home automation system and integrate their HVAC system. This really changes the HVAC game. What HVAC systems can i use this driver with? The BRP072A42 module is developed by Daikin for their Split based HVAC systems. The module will also work with any systems with the S21 port on the indoor PCB. Some Daikin Split Systems (Like the Daikin Zena) also comes preinstalled with this module. This driver is only compatible with the BRPXXXAXX and the BRPXXXBXX models. It is not compatible with the BRPXXXCXX models. NOTE. This module will not work with Daikin Ducted, Cassette or VRV Indoor HVAC systems. For those HVAC systems see our Daikin Skyfi Driver. Can i control fan direction with this? Yes our driver allows for swing control. This is accessible under the Extras Tab. Can i do schedule the HVAC system using this? Yes our driver has built in presets and scheduling. Where can i purchase this module? The module can be purchased from authorised Daikin dealers. The model number is BRP072A42. If you cannot source one easily then we recommend purchasing one online from Peninsula Air Conditioning Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above? This driver requires functionality that is only available in OS 2.7. As such this driver will not work in earlier versions of Control4 OS. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  9. Chowmain - Advanced Announcements Driver The Control4 Home Automation system has the ability to play audio announcements through the audio outputs on its controllers and speaker points. These announcements can play back any file encoded in a wav format. Traditionally these announcements have been used for doorbells and pre-recorded messages. Chowmain’s Advanced Announcements driver expands the announcement agent by providing integration with web based text to speech engines. This gives you futuristic dynamically generated voice notifications over your Control4 system without any additional hardware. We recently updated our driver to now support voice recording via a built in HTML5 web server. You can now browse the page using your firefox or chrome browser on windows, linux, mac or android operating systems and record your voice and send it to Control4 Features Ability to record voice via a compatible web browser and playback through Control4 straight away.Dynamic text to speech generationAbility to speak the timeAbility to speak the dateAbility to inject variablesCurrently supports 3 text to speech engines with multiple languages, voices, speed and pitchSpeechUtil.comVoiceRSS.orgiSpeech.orgPlay Online File command. This helps get around the 10mb Control4 announcement agent restriction by downloading files only on demand only and also allow integrators to implement online or local text to speech services not included in this driver.Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Reading out the time and date to the blind eg “the time currently is 10:00am”.Notifying you about how many times your phone has rung whilst you were out. eg “Whilst you were out you received 3 phone calls”.Notifying you about how many times your doorbell has been pressed whilst you were out. eg “Whilst you were out your doorbell was pressed twice”.Notifying you about the weather forecast for the day eg “The weather forecast for today is late showers with a minimum of 5 and maximum of 13 degrees”.Notifying you about the current energy usage. eg “Your house is currently using 4.5 kilowatts hours”.Page a person throughout your home or office using the built in PA system functionality.Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? This driver has the ability to use any variable from within a Control4 system. That means any 3rd party driver variable can be spoken in your announcement. From energy consumption to weather information the uses are endless.This driver will be useful for the blind. Getting notifications on their environment will greatly assist with their daily lives. What do the voices sound like? There are so many voices that it is hard to post samples of them all. We recommend you visit the engine websites to give it a try (SpeechUtil.com, VoiceRSS.org, iSpeech.org) prior to installation. Here is one we geneated earlier. Voice RSS Sample What hardware will this work on? This will work on any Control4 controller running oS 2.6 or later. Note that the audio output of the controller needs to be connected up to an amplification device such as a receiver. What happens when the text to speech engine API changes? The beautiful thing about the houselogix auto-update feature is that driver updates can be pushed out to systems. No dealer intervention needed. Rest assured that should any of these services change their API we will update the driver to match. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  10. Chowmain - Kodi Lite (XBMC) Driver for Control4 This driver is developed for the Kodi Entertainment Center (formerly known as XBMC). Kodi Entertainment Center is a software based media player that can be installed on Windows, MAC, Linux, Raspberry Pi and Android based platforms. Kodi offers a beautiful simple interface that enriches your playback experience. The Chowmain Kodi Lite driver enables us to integrate the Kodi Entertainment Center into the Control4 home automation system with seamless control and feedback. This is the most feature packed media player on Control4 to date providing the user with an enriched movie playback experience. See below for more details Features IP based communications Transport controls Numerical buttons act as jump to percentage during video playback or SMS style quick navigation when in navigational modes. Number 0 in navigation mode will jump to the end of the list. Number 1 in navigation mode will jump to the start of the list.Support for PVR (Guide, Record, DVR, Channel Up, Channel Down buttons) Movie selection from Control4’s Navigator Import Movies from the Kodi library into Control4's library with meta data and cover art. Automatic update upon movie Kodi * library update notification. Automatic Room On (like the music bridge) on playback detection and automatic Room Off on screen saver activate. If the driver detects music it will only turn on your receiver (audio endpoint). If it detects video it will also turn on your projector/tv (video endpoint).2 way feedback via the JSON API for play, pause, stop, screen saver active/deactive, Detected File Type, Video Aspect Ratio, Video Resolution, Video/Music/TV/Radio currently playing, Memory usage, CPU usage, CPU Frequency, System Total Space, System Uptime, System Temperature, Client Platform, Client Version & Client NameAssignable buttons for non intuitive buttons Wake-on Lan functionality and Shutdown functionality can keep your Kodi setup power efficient.

Power off options Ability to send custom messages to Kodi Entertainment Center via Kodi Notifications (similar to Control4 Announcements via Navigator). Audio End-Point assignment for line level volume up/down/mute functionality Video End-Point assignment Support for Android boxes (if XBMC app is closed it will launch upon ON command, also if XBMC exited by user you can navigate and control Android applications).Ability to play any URL via Control4 programming. This is useful for commercial systems.Frequently Asked Questions Why is this driver called KODI Lite? 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 the (as of date) best media player driver on the market with exceptional features. Kodi Full however will be THE best media player driver ever on the market with full library navigation, live meta data, cover art and more. They will be 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? 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. 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). Currently we prefer some of the higher end Android boxes as it is a more cleaner solution than the others. 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. Do you offer showroom discounts? We offer a 10% discount to dealers who want to use this driver in their showroom. Please contact our distributor Houselogix to arrange for this.

  12. Chowmain - Internet Weather Forecast Drivers The Forecast.io service provides free (upto 1000 calls per day) weather data and forecast. Forecast.io is backed by a wide range of data sources, which are aggregated together statistically to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location. The OpenWeatherMap service provides free weather data and forecast API suitable for any cartographic services like web and smartphones applications. Ideology is inspired by OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia that make information free and available for everybody. OpenWeatherMap provides wide range of weather data such as map with current weather, week forecast, precipitation, wind, clouds, data from weather Stations and many others. Weather data is received from global Meteorological broadcast services and more than 40 000 weather stations. The Chowmain Forecast.io and OpenWeatherMap drivers brings all of this data into Control4 for use in the home automation system. This is useful for automating services within the home based upon the external environment. Note that this is not a replacement for a personal weather station. We recommend utilising Extra Vegetables Cumulus Weather Stations or WeatherHawk weather station drivers/hardware if you require accurate readings as this provides accurate real time local weather information. Features Ability to select the Unit type (metric, imperial or internal)Current Weather Conditions for:Temperature (degrees)Humidity (percentage)Pressure (hPa)Wind Speed (mps)Wind Direction (degrees)Clouds (percentage)Precipitation IntensityPrecipitation ProbabilityDew Point (degrees)OzoneWeather Conditions (string)Forecasted Weather Conditions (Today & Tomorrow) for:Temperature MinimumTemperature MaximumHumidity (percentage)PrecipitationWind Speed (mps)Wind Direction (degrees)Pressure (hPa)Clouds (percentage)Moon Phase (percentage)Dew Point (degrees)OzoneWeather Conditions (string)Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Humidifiers can be turned on automatically if it is going to be a dry day,Towel rails can be turned on if its going to be a humid dayIf it is going to be a hot and sunny day, close the shutters to shut the heat outIf it is hotter indoors than it is outdoors and the wind direction is facing the motorised windows then open the windows.If it is going to be a hot day turn on the ACIf it is going to rain don’t automatically water the garden (I would also put in some additional logic to ensure that it will water the garden if it is extremely hot and if it hasn’t watered the garden in X amount of days).If it is going to be a cloudy day and the customer has solar then don’t turn on the smart appliances until tomorrow.Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? Combine with our Advanced Announcements driver to read the weather forecast out in the morning.What hardware will this work on? This will work on any Control4 controller running oS 2.2 or later. Why have two internet weather drivers? Why not? Not all internet weather information is built equally and we want to give you the option of getting one the is the most accurate for your location. One may work better in one country than the other. Two drivers for the price of one! What happens when the API changes? The beautiful thing about the extra vegetables auto-update feature is that driver updates can be pushed out to systems. No dealer intervention needed.

Chowmain - Generic Lighting Driver (IR) Control4 allows for you to easily integrate infra red based audio/visual devices but it does not give you the ability to integrate infra red based lighting devices. This is where the Chowmain generic lighting driver comes in. With customizable properties where you can enter in IR HEX codes you can now integrate infra red based lighting devices into Control4 with the correct icon. Features Definable On/Off Hex IR codes in properties * Easy to manage * Can have multiple copies of the same driver with different IR codes IR Binding * You can bind it to any infra red output in your Control4 system. On/Off/Toggle functions * With notifications to the proxy means that the client will know when the light is on/off (note that as it is IR based/without feedback it is assumed On/Off) Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? This driver is useful for integrating IR based lighting devices into Control4. This includes the Lutron based IR lighting devices, Dynalite IR lighting devices and more. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? Since the driver has definable properties you can have multiple drivers connected to the same IR port. This includes the IR blaster on supported controllers. This means that you can control any amount of IR based lights on a singular IR port (upto the limitations of the port). What hardware will this work on? This driver will work on any IR controllable light through any IR output compatible with Control4. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  17. Chowmain - Event Logging Driver The Control4 Home Automation system has built in logs in the form of debug logs. Unfortunately these logs are used by multiple devices and drivers and have alot on information in it that can be confusing. Sometimes you just want to log if a light turns on or when the security system has been armed. Chowmain has developed a simple to use event logging driver that stores programmed actions in a file stored on the controller. This file can be accessed via an inbuilt web page, via the file share or viewed on any Control4 onscreen, touchscreen or mobile/tablet based user interfaces Features Program an action to log an event and/or variable change. Each log has the time and date. File is accessible via a file share or via a web page. Log upto 2mb of content Access logs remotely using 4sight and Control4's IOS/Android applications Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? This driver is useful in the following situations and much more. * Logging activity in the home. Eg when motion is sensed, lights turn on/off, doors open/close, security system armed/disarmed. * Troubleshooting problematic systems – Eg for systems that turn on automatically for no reason * Monitoring system reboots – Eg programming OnProjectLoaded to see when the system has restarted. * Combine with Free Chowmain Ping driver to monitor internet and device outages. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? *Since Extra Vegetables provides a free trial licence for every customer you can essentially use this driver to troubleshoot problematic systems during the trial period. We encourage this usage and deem it extremely useful. If you still want to keep logging afterwards buy a licence. What hardware will this work on? This driver will work on all Control4 controllers capable of running OS versions 2.2 onwards. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  18. Chowmain - Video Game Integration OS 2.9 introduced experience buttons. This allowed us to add icons to Control4's navigator user interface. It also allowed us to create what is called 'no control devices'. These devices when selected do not display any transport controls on the user interface. Control4 has done a good job in making a few of the more common devices. We have utilised the no control experience buttons to integrate EVERY video game console ever made. Combine it with the Chowmain Belkin WeMo Insight driver and have the system automatically turn on when the video game console powers up and have the whole system turn off when the console turns off. The following video game consoles have been integrated. Arcade Games Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Atari 7800 Atari Jaguar Colecovision Microsoft Xbox Microsoft Xbox 360 Microsoft Xbox One NEC PC Engine NEC TurboGrafx Nintendo Entertainment System Super Nintendo Nintendo 64 Nintendo Gamecube Nintendo Wii Nintendo Wii U Odyssey Philips CD-i Sega Master System Sega Master System II Sega Mega Drive Sega Genesis Sega Saturn Sega Dreamcast Sony Playstation Sony PSONE Sony Playstation 2 Sony Playstation 3 Sony PS Vita TV Sony Playstation 4 SNK Neo Geo FAQ Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Make your user interface nicer by adding the correct icons for their video game consoles. The icons when selected will switch to the correct input and will NOT display any controls. Combined with WeMo Insight Switches and our Belkin Wemo driver you can turn on the video game console using your controller and have Control4 automatically turn on the system to the right inputs. Turn off the console using the console's controller or power button and have Control4 automatically turn the room off. All of this is done via power sensing through the outlet. Why do you only support OS 2.9 and above? This driver is reliant on a new proxy introduced in OS 2.9.0 How do I find out more information about the driver?

  19. Chowmain - Generic Thermostat Driver (IR) Split infrared controlled HVAC systems are quite common in Australia and New Zealand. The issue with these systems is that control is only one way, without any feedback what so ever. Furthermore each IR string contains code information about the mode, fan speed and set point within in. Given this you must learn every single combination of IR code to get full integration into your home automation system. The Chowmain Generic IR Thermostat driver enables us to integrate infrared controlled HVAC systems into the Control4 system with feedback from a dry contact (to sense if it is on/off) and temperature input from the Control4 Thermostat, Axxess Motion Sensors, Card Access Contact Sensor or Relays. This provides a total solution for what would be a one way system. Note this driver is only compatible with HVAC systems that utilize Celsius. The two options we recommend for installation are as follows: * Option A: 'Retrofit' via a card access Zigbee 2 IR device * Option B: 'New Construction' via hard wired connection from a Control4 Controller or IO Extender. In both cases installation is recommended on the interior of the heat pump chassis to ensure a clean look. However if this voids the manufactures warranty a tidy exterior installation can easily be done. Features * Inbuilt Web server for control, setup and backup or IR codes. * Ability to test IR codes via the Web setup page. * Heat, Cool & Auto HVAC modes supported. * Low, Medium, High & Auto Fan modes supported. * 16 – 30 degrees of Set Point supported. * Temperature Feedback from Axxess Motion Sensor, Control4 Thermostat, Card Access Contact Sensor or Card Access Contact Relay. * Power State Feedback via dry contact input. Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? * This driver is extremely useful for countries where IR based HVAC solutions are common. By combining it with 3rd party temperature inputs you get a fully integration IR HVAC solution within Control4. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? * This driver supports an optional contact input. This is useful for when the consumer utilises the existing IR remote control for feedback. It will set the mode to off when the unit shutter closes and to auto at the last setpoint when the unit shutter opens. * This driver has an inbuilt webserver for setup and control. If the client is on their PC they can control their HVAC system by just visiting the URL specified in the properties page of the driver. What hardware will this work on? This will work on all IR based HVAC systems. Note that a 3rd party IR learner is required to learn the codes. Temperature input is compatible with the Control4 Thermostat, Axxess Motion Sensor, Card Access Contact and Card Access Relay. Where do i find IR backup files for existing systems? You can download IR backup files from our website. How do I find out more information about the driver? Please see the links below for more information about the driver.

  22. 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?
