Chowmain - inIRt Air Comfort Control

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.

inIRt utilises a room temperature sensor, current transformer and IR blaster to provide total control over what would normally be a way one system. The inIRt is easy to set up. Simply point your remote at the inIRt and press a button. The inIRt will then search its online cloud database for the correct code set and load it into the hardware. Quick and simple.

Our driver for Control4 integrates the inIRt device into the Control4 home automation system allowing control on any Control4 touchscreen, iphone, ipad, android device or 4sight web service.

Combine the inIRt device & driver with the Chowmain weather forecast drivers to automatically turn on the HVAC system based upon forecasted weather events.


  • Heat, Cool & Auto HVAC modes supported.
  • Low, Medium, High & Auto Fan modes supported.
  • 14 – 34 degrees of Set Point supported.
  • Temperature Feedback via the optional room temperature sensor
  • Energy usage feedback available in a variable for programming.
  • Ability to send horizontal swing, vertical swing, powerful, quiet, economica modes.
  • Two way feedback. Control the HVAC unit from the inIRt cloud or smart phone application and Control4 will get feedback of the change in state.

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.

What is the difference between this and the Generic THermostat Driver?
The generic thermostat driver requires you to utilise a combination of Control4, Axxess and/or Card Access devices to create a HVAC solution. It also requires you to learn all the codes with a 3rd party learner.

This device has everything built in. IR blaster/emitter port, temperature probe, CT clamp, IR learner. It also has the ability to detect which IR library to use from a single IR code learnt. It makes installation quick and simple.
