Autonomic, makers of whole-house music systems, have made available its latest certified Control4 driver that supports Control4 OS 2.7.2 and delivers improved integration of the Mirage Music Players (MMS-2A and MMS-5A) as well as the Mirage Audio System (Mirage Media Server and matching Mirage digital amplifiers) within the Control4 environment.
Now available via Control4 Composer, the new Autonomic Control4 driver adds intuitive functionality while reducing programming time, according to the company. Users will benefit from the convenience of automatic source selection, which assigns the first available output of the Mirage Media Server once a room and playback content have been chosen. One press of the Listen button on the Control4 Navigator provides direct access to streaming services or all available local content.
Another new feature simplifies the process of connecting guest iOS devices via AirPlay. Users will see a list of zone names that they can connect to, eliminating the need for a dedicated AirPlay stream button on the Control4 interface. The Mirage Media Server will automatically activate the zone and connect to the guest’s AirPlay source. Control4 users will also have fast access to the Autonomic exclusive TuneBridge feature, making it quick and easy to queue up a Pandora station or do a full album/artist/track search dependent on what is playing.
The new interface is designed to make it easier to access playlists and favorites, add tracks to the current queue, or save them to an existing playlist.
With the Mirage Digital Amplifier driver (available separately on the Autonomic website), the Mirage Audio System packages will integrate fully with the Control4 platform, delivering control of up to 96 audio zones throughout the home.
“Our latest Control 4 driver is the result of a deep collaboration between Autonomic and Control4 engineering to ensure that our products interoperate seamlessly and provide a high degree of joy and convenience to our collective customers,” said Michael de Nigris, Autonomic CEO. “Dealers will appreciate that all of our most popular features, such as TuneBridge and music services Pandora, Spotify, TIDAL and others are represented and easier than ever to access
from within the Control4 environment.”
