Control4 has launched a new generation of dedicated in-wall touchscreens under a new “InfinityEdge” brand. The five-inch and seven-inch sizes feature edge-to-edge capacitive glass and a low-profile design at $599 and $899 (MSRP) respectively.

InfinityEdge touchscreens also feature intercom capability, which can be enabled through the purchase of a $499 (MSRP) license.
“We’re bringing the elegant InfinityEdge line of in-wall touchscreens to market at prices that are unheard of in the custom residential industry,” stated Control4’s CEO Will West, “This introduction supports our vision to provide affordable home control solutions that will allow home owners to access their Control4 system from virtually every room in the house.”
Control4 InfinityEdge touchscreens are designed to offer intuitive, fingertip control of lights, music, climate, entertainment, and security systems. According to the manufacturer, these touchscreens feature edge-to-edge capacitive glass and the full functionality of Control4 OS 2.0, including a new flash-based user interface and the ability to access and extend Control4 system capabilities with apps from the 4Store Application Marketplace. Full-featured intercom capability is optional and allows customers to monitor rooms, communicate between rooms, or to broadcast messages to multiple InfinityEdge touchscreens in the home.
With a choice of AC power or Power Over Ethernet, wired or Wi-Fi connectivity options, and four programmable buttons for customized commands, InfinityEdge Touch Screens can be integrated into every room of a house without complex rewiring and additional construction costs. Electricians can pre-wire the back-boxes in new construction and dealers can install the touch screens with one connection at project finish. Both the five-inch and seven-inch models share the same back-box, which allows the flexibility to change to a different model, even at final install, the company says.
