Control4® OS 2.2 Software Release

Control4 is pleased to announce that Operating System 2.2 (OS 2.2) is now available for immediate download. The primary focus of the OS 2.2 software release is to support new hardware products – the HC-800 Controller and the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera which are now shipping — and to continue to improve the quality of the OS for Control4 Dealers and Customers.

All of these changes are documented in the OS 2.2 Release Notes but here are the highlights (do not use this as an excuse not to read the release notes!):

New Features and Functionality
  • Video Intercom – One of the primary features added to the OS 2.2 release is the introduction of Video Intercom support. This functionality is available only on the new 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera. It will also be included on future products from Control4.
  • Audio Intercom – The current 5” and 7” In-Wall Touch Screens will continue to support the audio intercom functionality and are interoperable (audio only) with the intercom on the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera. UI changes have been introduced that should make the Intercom easier to use.
  • Report OS Version on Check-In – Controllers checking in to will now report the OS version that they are running. The Control4 Dealer will be able to view this information for each of their customers by logging into their dealer account on [not currently available pending update of]
  • CD Browse – Added the Navigator user interface to support browsing and playback of CDs stored on disc changers.
  • Added ability to use the Windows Shift-Click and Ctrl-Click multi-select method when specifying device visibility and display order within Composer, System Design, Navigator.

Control4 HC-250

The HC-250 as an elegant, low-profile form factor, single-room controller with a next-generation 1GHz processor that delivers exceptional speed and power. The HC-250 fits easily behind a TV, on a shelf, or in a rack and features new Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enabled by a single CAT5 cable providing the electrical power and network connectivity for the HC-250 to control the entire room, greatly simplifying installation for the integrator.

The HC-250 supports both digital audio and video over HDMI, and boasts integrated Wireless-N WiFi and ZigBee for high-performance wireless networking. The HC-250 is perfect for single-room systems including media rooms, home theaters, and conference rooms, as well as for providing fluid on-screen control for each TV in larger residential and light commercial installations.

The HC-250 makes it easier than ever for an integrator to design a one-room AV solution as an upgrade-replacement for less-functional universal remote controls. Consumers can then build upon that system at their own pace — adding additional automation and control functionality over time.

When will the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera be available?

What versions of the Control4 OS software are required to support the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera? The 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera requires Control4 OS 2.2 or later.

What if I want the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera to be set up as a tabletop device for a countertop or a night stand? The 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera ships with the hardware to permanently affix it to the charger for these applications. This option is easily dealer configurable.

If I mount the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera into its stand permanently as a tabletop, can I still connect via WiFi in rooms where no Ethernet is available? Yes. Dealers can configure the device to use WiFi or Ethernet.
Does the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera automatically switch between Ethernet and WiFi when it is docked in its charger? No. The Portable is configured as either WiFi or Ethernet and does not change when docked.

Can you walk around the house while using the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera on WiFi? Yes, the Portable supports WiFi roaming between WiFi access points in the home if they are set to identical SSIDs, channels, and security. Be aware that video intercom requires robust 802.11n/g signal strength for good results. If you are using older Control4 WiFi products, roaming is not supported.

Does the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera require a special license to enable the video intercom functionality? Yes, the 7” Portable Touch Screen with Camera does require an Intercom License to enable the audio and video intercom functionality. If you already have an Intercom License, no additional license is needed. The video intercom capability will be automatically enabled for existing licenses.

If I already have 5” or 7” In-Wall Touch Screens using audio intercom with an existing Intercom License, will the new video-capable devices work? You only need one Intercom License per system. Video intercom-enabled devices will communicate with other video intercom-enabled devices, and will communicate with the 5” and 7” In-Wall Touch Screens (C4-TSWMC5-EG-XX, C4-TSWMC7-EG-XX) through audio intercom. Such devices do not support video intercom functionality and they are not capable of playing the video portion of intercom sessions from the new devices.

What happens if I mix video intercom-capable devices with the older audio-only in-wall intercom devices? They will interoperate automatically. However, they will default to audio-only whenever an audio-only device is called. For example: In a mixed environment, a call between two video-capable devices will show video. However, a call from a video capable device to an older unit will automatically step down to audio only. The 5” and 7” In-Wall Touch Screens (C4-TSWMC5-EG-XX, C4-TSWMC7-EG-XX) are not capable of playing the video portion of intercom sessions from the new devices.

Are trial licenses available to allow customers to try video intercom before they decide to purchase a license?
Yes, trial licenses are available. The trial licenses enable full intercom functionality for 30 days. After the trial license expires, a license will need to be purchased to continue using intercom features.

Nytech AV & HAI Announces Controller Firmware Update for ZigBee and Z-Wave Door Lock Integration

WirelessLockIntegrationHome Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced the development of enhanced controller firmware to allow two-way integration with both ZigBee and Z-Wave wireless door locks.

Integrating a Z-Wave or ZigBee wireless door lock into an HAI Omni or Lumina home control system means increased access control with cutting-edge electronic locks from various manufacturers. Users gain the ability to lock and unlock up to 16 doors from HAI Ethernet Touchscreens, keyfobs, and remotely via mobile Apple/Android devices. The HAI controller can lock and unlock the locks, in addition to monitoring the state of the locks. HAI systems may even be configured to automatically set lighting, music, and temperature based on the locked/unlocked status of the door.

Compatible products that HAI has tested include options from Kwikset, Yale, and Schlage. The ZigBee integration has been specifically verified with the Black & Decker Kwikset SmartCode locks, but it should work with other locks that support the standard ZigBee Home Automation profile lock cluster. Additionally, the Z-Wave integration has been specifically verified with the Kwikset SmartCode deadbolt and entry set, Yale Evolution deadbolt, and Schlage Z-Wave deadbolt locks.

HAI expects the ZigBee and Z-Wave lock integrations to be available during January 2012. The door lock integrations will be compatible with all Ethernet-enabled Omni and Lumina controllers, including Omni Pro II, Omni IIe, Lumina Pro, and Lumina, utilizing firmware version 3.10 or later. The Z-Wave integration requires a Leviton RF+3 Serial Interface Module, Leviton Part Number, VRC0P. The ZigBee integrations require usage of HAI's Zigbee Interface Module, HAI Part Number, 81A00-3ZB, running firmware 14.08 or later.

"HAI's engineers have further enhanced the robust controller firmware with a much-desired third-party product feature," explained Jay McLellan, HAI President & CEO. "Business owners and homeowners will take comfort knowing whether all doors are locked and fully secure, as opposed to simply knowing whether or not they were closed."
