Chowmain - Control By Web Driver Set 

ControlByWeb manufactures IP based monitoring and control devices that provide various inputs and outputs such as relays, digital inputs, analog inputs, 1-wire bus for monitoring of temperature & humidity, etc. Chowmain has integrated the X-310 and X-320 ControlByWeb devices into Control4 to expose their IO's for various integration requirements. 

X-310 Features

FAQ 

What can i use this for? 

These products are good for adding additional contacts, relays, temperature sensors and other analog sensors that are not native to Control4. 

What models will this work for? 
We have currently integrated the X-310 and X-320 models. We have a X-332 on order so we will be adding that to this driver licence shortly. We are looking at integrating other models as well so if you have one let us know and we'll work with you to integrate it. 

How do I find out more information about the driver? 
Please see the links below for more information about the driver.

Do you provide trial licences? 
All Chowmain drivers for Control4 come with a 48 hour trial. This is activated once you add the driver to the project. No additional steps are necessary.

Can I use this for a radiant heat application?

Can I then get like a virtual thermostat and couple it with a temperature sensor ?

Thanks

YATUN have a software thermostat driver which you can use with our driver.  You can then map the temperate from the control by web driver to the thermostat and the relay output from the control by web unit to the thermostat.

I am considering purchasing a Controlbyweb X-310 device so I can monitor my whole house generator.  I would like to then have a notification via Control4 to tell me that the daily generator test ran.  Also, I would like to be able to start the generator from Control4.  Will this driver allow me to do both fo those functions?

the driver has contact inputs and relay outputs.  I'm not sure how you generator works but if it is compatible with those IO's then it will work.

Where you need to control quite a few motors (10+), does it make more sense to use one or two of these controlbyweb devices with the Chowmain driver or two Control4 IO extenders? Reliability is key but cost, cable run lengths and rack space are considerations as well.

Thanks

MAJOR UPDATE 

  • Added Universal ControlByWeb driver. This driver will dynamically reconfigure itself based on the ControlByWeb device it is connected to to automatically add in all the relays and contacts it supports. Also adds in everything as a variable so you can program against it. This driver works perfectly for the X-400 device which can expand by addon modules and other ControlByWeb devices (upto 100 inputs/outputs over 32 modules connected to the X400)

Alan, 

Just got round to using this driver and the Universal ControlByWeb is not in the Download 

My dealer as just called to say when he download and upzips the ControlByWeb is no there - Are you able to advise 

Driver Version is showing -

20190416

Sorry didn't update the zip file.  Now updated.
