Control4 has announced its new Control4 MyHome application for Android-based smartphones and tablets.
This addition to the popular Control4 MyHome family lets homeowners use the Control4 interface on leading mobile device platforms, providing total home control over video, music, lighting, thermostat, security, and more.
“Android’s fresh features and popular marketplace have driven mobile platform’s popularity, and now our customers want the convenience to interact with their Control4 systems from their new Android devices,” said Martin Plaehn, chief executive officer of Control4. “Like our MyHome iPad and iPhone apps, both popular additions to our lineup, we anticipate the new app for Android will let our dealers put the best Control4 interface in front of our customers. With smartphones and tablets topping most holiday gift lists, we’re expecting more and more consumers to demand home control from these devices… and we are delivering."
Dealers can leverage the MyHome licensing model to mix and match Android, iPhone, iPad, or even PC or Mac interfaces into a single Control4 system. For customers adding MyHome capability to their systems, the enabling license for multiple devices at a single location, or site, is $499, while a single device license is $199. Homeowners who already have a MyHome site license can add support for their Android devices for free; they simply have to download the app.
The app includes a demo mode that allows customers to see the features supported in the application. To try the app in demo mode, download the app from the Android Market and from the Welcome Screen, simply launch the app into Demo mode.
