By |


Control4_logo.gifControl4, a provider of IP-based control and entertainment systems announced the availability of Control4 OS 2.0, its most powerful automation solution to date. This next-generation release offers new whole-home control functionality, a Flash-based platform for developers, support for ZigBee Pro hardware products, and a new user interface. New features include:
 
4Store Application Marketplace

4Store apps can enhance the functionality of both Control4 and third-party devices and systems in the home. Customers set up a 4Store account online at www.4store.com and then purchase and download 4Store applications from a variety of categories.

With the 4Store platform and the Control4 Application Development Kit, Flash developers can now expand their reach into the growing smart home market.

Flash-Based Navigator Interface and Access to Content

The Control4 Navigator Interface is now Adobe Flash-based and includes multiple new interface design choices from Control4, or customization with the customer's own home page design, wallpaper, and screen savers.

A new feature allows customers to mark favorite pages for access to preferred content. A Control4 Authorized installer can now program 'page flips' to set the display to a specific page with one touch. OS 2.0 also has an updated media database allowing users to schedule media scanning to occur with improved convenience.

Available in Seven Languages

Control4 OS 2.0 ships with support for seven languages: French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Ukranian and English. New languages can be added to the OS using the Control4 Language Development Kit. Support for new languages does not require a software update and new languages will continue to be added.

ZigBee Pro Standard

Control4 OS 2.0 implements industry standard ZigBee Pro technology, which allows interoperable devices to be added to the Control4 system.
