Latest Control4 OS release adds native Amazon Music and Deezer HiFi streaming services and new When >> Then personalization capabilities
Control4 Corporation, a leading global provider of smart home solutions, today released the latest Control4® OS, version 2.10.4, which expands music streaming and hands-on personalization choices for homeowners with new native streaming services and When >> ThenTM features.
Music is central to the smart home experience and with its latest release, Control4 delivers even more choice to homeowners with the addition of Amazon® Music and Deezer HiFi® to its expansive music streaming integrations. Additionally, with the new “Add Music” capability, Control4 homeowners can add one or more music services directly from a mobile device or Control4 Touch Screen. In addition to the new services, Control4 also directly supports the streaming music services from Deezer®, iHeartRadio®, Napster®, Pandora®, SiriusXM®, Spotify®, TIDAL®, and TuneIn®.
“Control4 continues to deliver incredible sounding music for every room in the house,” said Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Starting with the Control4 EA-line of controllers, Triad high-resolution multi-room audio products, Triad custom loudspeakers, and by working with industry-leading streaming music services, we’re providing fantastic music listening experiences to our customers and we’re equipping our Dealers with high-resolution music capabilities for every living space in the home, from the source to the listener’s ear.”
The needs, schedules, and interests of Control4 smart homeowners evolve over time, requiring changes to the automation in the home. Control4 When >> Then capability delivers unprecedented hands-on personalization, empowering homeowners to adjust certain functionality of their smart home systems independently, without the involvement of a dealer. New When >> Then enhancements include the ability to create and edit voice scenes for Amazon Alexa, create custom buttons and programming for Control4’s recently introduced Intercom Anywhere, and modify schedules for lighting scenes. Additionally, dealers can now unlock their programming added through Control4 Composer Pro software, enabling homeowners to modify and add to pre-existing programming through When >> Then.
“Homeowners depend on the expertise of our Dealers to design and install reliable, experientially-rich smart homes, but homeowners also want the flexibility to personalize and change scenes and automated events on their own,” continued Plaehn. “We’re empowering homeowners to fine-tune their Control4 experience in ways that matter most to them—how they listen to their favorite music, design lighting scenes, initiate voice control, and secure their homes.”
