Snap One Pushes Out New Control4 Halo Remote Firmware Update

Improvements include enhanced customization, battery Life, Wi-Fi stability, and lighting control.

Snap One has announced a slate of new features and capabilities for the Control4 Halo and Halo Touch remotes that provide a more streamlined interface with greater reliability and improved user experiences. Following the over-the-air update to v1.7, all Halo and Halo Touch remotes will gain a redesigned lighting page that offers faster control, longer battery life, improved Wi-Fi stability, access to custom buttons from their system, and a convenient “What’s New” page that explains new features right on the remote itself.

Through the new redesigned lighting experience, users can precisely control light dimming and ceiling fan speed using sliders on the list view and color control pages, without needing to navigate to individual devices.

With the addition of custom buttons, the remote control experience mirrors that of the Control4 mobile app or touchscreen interfaces, making all existing custom buttons available on the remotes. Custom buttons can be used to execute scenes, macros, or any programming events within Control4, offering rapid, precise control of large areas with multiple subsystems. Users can create up to six custom buttons on each of four menus, offering 24 unique actions that can combine lighting, audio, video, window shades, HVAC, and more to offer instant control of fully customized environments.

To improve daily usability and user satisfaction, Snap One’s engineers have made major improvements to battery life, with both versions of the Halo remote now delivering roughly double the previous runtime thanks to better power management.

In addition to extending time between charges, the new firmware also enacts a brand new Wi-Fi architecture that features improved capabilities that enhance network connection reliability and usability, while greatly reducing the need for resets. Continued rigorous Wi-Fi testing ensures ongoing enhancements and consistent performance optimizations for the remote.

Crucially, all of these enhancements are presented directly to users on the remote itself in a “What’s New” page, with a blue dot on the home screen indicating there are new updates or features to be reviewed. Future firmware updates will be detailed in the What’s New page.
