Control4 2.8 update

October 19, 2015

 

One of our favorite new items that we found at CEDIA EXPO was the Control4 update to version 2.8.  New in the updates are:

Expanded Native Streaming Services and New Entertainment UI

Pandora, Tidal, Deezer now have native support within Control4 without the use of 3rd party audio systems like a Sonos!  This will make it much easier to operate and control the music in your house using these 3 services!

Safety and Security Reimagined

Homeowners want to ensure their home and family are safe and secure. We have completely reimagined the Control4 security experience, making it much more intuitive for homeowners to arm or disarm a system, and we’ve improved the integration process for our dealers.

New Security UI Provides More Control and Peace of Mind

The stunning new Control4 security experience makes using a security system more intuitive, allowing your homeowners to arm or disarm their system, or get emergency help directly from their touch screens, TV or mobile devices. The bold, approachable and intuitive UI features large icons making it easy for everyone in the home to use.

All Security Zones on a Single Screen

Now homeowners can manage sensors and other security features in one consolidated place, the Security UI. This new security experience makes it easy to close a gate or a garage door with a single tap.

 
All-New Security History Agent

A brand-new History agent records security incidents throughout the home, creating a contextualized understanding of what is happening within the house. These history items can be used to create intelligent alerts and notifications so the owner can know when an issue arises. The History agent also provides a list view on Navigators of all the security events in a home, making them searchable to see a more complete history of all activity.

Secure your Smart Home with your iOS or Android Device

The same great lock experience available on the new Control4 touch screens now extends to your iOS or Android device. A homeowner can easily view and manage locks from anywhere, and even grant or remove access to the system.

Automate Security Panel Integrations with Intelligent Drivers

For dealers, the new Control4 security experience provides more powerful, intelligent drivers that automate more of the security system configuration with two-way communication between the security panel and the Control4 system. New drivers are available for 20 of the most popular security panels from five of the most popular brands.

All-New Experience Drivers

With over 700 new drivers, you can connect over 9,500 different devices to a Control4 system. But drivers can do more than connect devices—they can create new experiences within a smart home.

Mockupancy™

Make your home appear occupied while you’re away. The Mockupancy™ driver captures and records the everyday activities of your smart home, then randomly simulates the activities while the home is unoccupied. Everyday usage activities include: lights, shades, and even entertainment like the TV or music streaming.

Snapshot

The Snapshot driver makes it easy to capture all of the current settings within a system and recall them on an event or in programming. You can capture lighting levels, shades, entertainment, and thermostat settings.
