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.

  3. Chowmain - TP-Link Wifi Smart Home Driver Suite Chowmain has integrated the range of TP-Link Wifi based Smart Home products into Control4 with two way control and feedback. This provides easy to retrofit solutions for outlet/power strip control, inwall switch control, Inwall dimmer control and also LED bulb control. The hardware is extremely affordable with outlets starting at $24.99 MSRP, bulbs at $19.99 MSRP, light switches at $39.99 MSRP and power strips at $79.99 MSRP. It definately adds value to any Control4 installation. Smart Plugs / Power Strips Control4 supplies the wireless outlet switch that makes any household plug-in device, like lamps, appliances and electronics part of the Control4 system by turning a standard outlet into a smart outlet. 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. Features Automatic Discovery Self Healing on IP Address change Abilty to connect driver to outlet light or relay device drivers which in turn allows you to view the correct icon on navigator interface or even eliminate standby power on AV based devices. Ability to connect driver to keypad buttons (with LED feedback) to allow for quick on/off/toggle programming Ability to monitor and manage energy using insight based switches. Ability to use energy monitoring in HS110/HS300 outlets for automatic selection and room off of Playstation, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and other manually controlled devices On/Off feedback from the device. Bulbs Control4 have provided a variety of lighting solutions for circuit level control. They have yet to offer an easy to install solution for lamps or individual lights. The TP-Link solves this problem with their affordable range of Wifi bulbs. These wifi bulbs can be dimmed, the color temperature can be changed to suit the customer's lifestyle (eg warmer white vs cooler white) and the hue color bulbs can be used for various functionality including notifications via colors (eg flash red and blue to alert the customer).

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 we cannot easily integrate floor lamps, bedside table lights, fans, electric heaters, towel rails, etc easily. This driver fills in the gap to integrate these devices into the Control4 system. This driver allows connection to the Control4 outlet light driver and any relay based binding. 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. On HS110/HS300 outlets you can turn on your Xbox One, Playstation 4 or Nintendo Switch using their 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. The KP200 device offers two in-wall outlets which is used to replace existing outlets rather than plugging in a smart plug. The KP400 device is an IP64 rated outdoor smart plug with two outlets.

  8. Hi there, I am trying to write a small driver that allows me to call the LIFX smart bulbs API to activate/deactivate light scenes. Unfortunately, the damn API wants to receive PUT requests. In the driverworks documentation I only see support for GET and POST. Does anybody know if there's a way to send a PUT request from LUA code in a driver? Maybe someone has some code to share? :-) Other than invoking curl on the controller, of course... Thanks in advance, Rick

  11. Chowmain - Daikin Airbase driver In many countries outside of the US 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. In order to integrate HVAC you had to install commercial grade HVAC solutions and get additional modules. There was no definitive and easy way to know if a HVAC solution was going to work without consulting a HVAC installer. To put it simple it was just too hard and too expensive to integrate HVAC. Now with the Daikin Airbase module installers can now easily integrate Daikin based Ducted and Sky based HVAC systems into Control4. The module is extremely affordable and will not void Daikin's manufacturer warranty on the HVAC system as it is an official Daikin product. This module is even backwards compatible with systems dated back to 2003. So dealers can now revisit old customers with compatible Daikin HVAC systems to upgrade their home automation system and integrate their HVAC system. The Chowmain Daikin Airbase driver integrates the Airbase module and provides full 2 way control over temperature, HVAC mode, setpoint, fan speed, timer functions and zone control. Setup of hardware and driver should take you no more than 30 minutes once you get the hang of it. This driver will only work on Control4 OS 2.10 and above. Features Auto detect HVAC Modes – OFF, HEAT, COOL, FAN and optional AUTO and DRY modes* Auto detect FAN Speeds – AUTO, LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH with optional LOW/MEDIUM and MEDIUM/HIGH* Setpoint Control Temperature Feedback Auto detect Zone Names* Zone State Control and Feedback* Ability to add Presets Ability to perform Scheduling FAQ What HVAC systems can i use the Airbase with? The Airbase module is developed by Daikin for their Ducted, Ducted with Zone Control and Cassette/Under Ceiling based HVAC systems. The Airbase module will also work with VRV indoor systems with the P1-P2 terminals for a wired remote control. This should work with any of these systems that are manufacturered after 2003.

  13. 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 SMTP driver provides you with an email service that can be replied to, can be formatted with HTML and can attach files to without any ongoing yearly costs. Usage Scenarios Notifying the owner when a door bell is pressed. If you have a IP camera at the front door you can also send the camera snapshot as an attachment.Uploading log files (requires Chowmain event logger driver).Notifying 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 an owner when they have left the oven onAdvising an owner if they have a gas or water leak.Advising an owner of when a security system is armed or disarmed and by whom.Features No 4sight subscription necessaryUse your own SMTP service.Definable PortSupport SSLSupports SMTP AuthenticationDefinable Senders NameDefinable Senders EmailLast Email Recipient FeedbackLast Email Subject FeedbackLast Email Body FeedbackServer Status FeedbackAbility to send a message with the following parameters.To – This is the email address you want to send toSubject – The subject of the emailRecipient Name (optional) – The name of the recipientAttachment – The HTTP URL of a local file on the network.

Great for Camera Snapshots, Chowmain Logs or anything stored on a webserver that you might want to upload!Body – The body of the email. Can support HTML tags as well so you can format your email nicely. Can also support variable insertion.Deviantsart & Chunk.io With the 4sight subscription service Control4 can send email notifications. It can’t however attach camera snapshots to these emails for viewing. Our Deviantsart & Chunk.io drivers for Control4 will download a snapshot from any IP camera with a built in webserver and upload it to the Deviantsart.com or Chunk.io image hosting service. It will then return a URL in a Control4 variable for insertion into your 4sight email or push notification Usage Scenarios Doorbell press sends a image link via 4Sight emailDoorbell press sends a image link via Push notificationSecurity system alarm sends a image link via 4Sight email.Door open sends a photo of person at the door to an email.Features Type in any URL (supports HTTPS, HTTP Auth, different port numbers)Gets the image and uploads it to deviantsart.com or chunk.ioReturns the URL in the Driver’s properties pageReturns the URL as a variableFrequently Asked Questions What makes your push notification driver different from the rest? It supports image uploads! With a single swipe you can see who rang your doorbell or what tripped an sensor in your home.It supports variable insertion. Get notified of the exact temperature of your home or if your security system supports it the name of the person who disarmed or armed your home.If there are any API changes we can easily update it and push it out using the Houselogix auto-update feature.What is the deviantsart & chunk.io drivers for? 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?

  14. 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.

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?

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.
