Control4 deepens homeowner personalisation with new operating system (OS) 2.9.
The “Connects with Control4” program includes nearly 10,000 supported third-party devices, with new partners Amazon, Lutron, Sonos, Z-Wave and more, driving the industry’s largest interoperable smart home ecosystem.
Control4 now features a Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) that identifies a product and loads the correct driver. The new program will feature QR codes on products that can be quickly scanned in to automatically identify and add the correct integration driver. This now includes products from Amazon, Lutron, Nest, Somfy, and Sonos.
OS 2.9 also introduces more homeowner ability to make customisations and personalise their system and experience. Now homeowners can create their own “Wake Up” and “Sleep” scenes which can be configured individually by room. These scenes can include lighting, music, TV, shades and temperature settings.
