Cisco is leading an investment in Control4, and the collaboration between the two companies includes the integration of Control4 technology into Cisco's Service Delivery Platform (SDP) and the introduction of Cisco-branded Control4 products. Additionally Control4 will become a key member of Cisco's ecosystem in delivering specialized applications to meet the needs of Cisco's Smart+Connected Communities and utility customers and deliver on the vision of Smart+Connected Communities and Cisco's Home Energy Management Solution.
"Both Cisco and Control4 share a vision of delivering a connected world where we all lead better and simpler lives," said Control4 chief executive officer Will West. "The integration of Control4's operating system is a key component of the value proposition for Cisco's Smart+Connected Communities vision to use the network as the platform to build smart, green and connected communities around the world and helps bring the benefits of automation and control to potentially millions.
