With All Our Powers Combined
As part of coverage for CEDIA Expo 2019, Matt Scott talks to Senior Director of product marketing for Control4 Brad Hintze at the SnapAV + Control4 booth about the merger between Control4 and SnapAV, and the latest additions to OS 3.
A new processor for OS3 solutions utilizes redundant components like fans and processors. This allows systems to stay connected in the event of an error or hardware issue.
Through Alexa, Control4 systems recieve 37,000 commands daily. In addition to Amazon Echo support, Control4 is now adding Google Assistant implementation to give dealers more choice for their solutions.
Control4 debuted at the 2004 CEDIA Expo for the newly developed home automation market. Since then it has made solutions for intelligent lighting, smart home interfaces, multi-room audio and more. In February of 2019 Control4 acquired Switzerland-based Neeo specializing in mutli-device remotes. In August of 2019 Control4 completed a merger with consumer technology manufacturer SnapAV. AVNation has previously discussed this merger with SnapAV and Control4.
More information about Control4 and their products can be found on their website.
