Salt Lake City, UT–Control4 has begun shipping its wireless and wired IP-based home automation products.
“We believe these products have the potential to transform the home automation industry,” said Will West, chief executive officer of Control4. “Consumers and dealers now have access to products that offer high quality automation at a very affordable price, and because we offer both wired and wireless solutions, they can be easily retrofitted into every home.”
Control4 products reduce the cost of home automation and
permit consumers to incrementally upgrade their systems–upgrades will be possible for as little $99 at a time. According to the company, Control4 is also the first to deliver next generation wireless products
based on the 802.15.4 standard (also known as Zigbee). Zigbee is the new industry standard for mesh networking.
The Control4 products that are now shipping include the Media Controller, Wireless Dimmer, Wireless Switch, Ethernet Mini-Touch Screen, Wireless Touch Screen 10.5, Audio Matrix-16 Switch, Wireless Contact/Relay Extender, and
System Remote Control. A second wave of products will be shipped over the next 60 days.
