Control4 has released the latest Control4 OS (2.10.4) which expands music streaming and hands-on personalisation choices for homeowners with new native streaming services, and When >> Then features.

Music is central to this latest release, with the addition of Amazon Music and Deezer HiFi  integration. Additionally, with the new “Add Music” capability, Control4 homeowners can add one or more music services directly from a mobile device or Control4 Touch Screen. Control4 also directly supports the streaming music services from Deezer, iHeartRadio, Napster, Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify, TIDAL, and TuneIn.

“Starting with the Control4 EA-line of controllers, Triad high-resolution multi-room audio products, Triad custom loudspeakers, and by working with industry-leading streaming music services, we’re providing fantastic music listening experiences to our customers," enthuses Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "we’re equipping our Dealers with high-resolution music capabilities for every living space in the home, from the source to the listener’s ear.”

He adds that Control4 When >> Then capability delivers "unprecedented hands-on personalization, empowering homeowners to adjust certain functionality of their smart home systems independently, without the involvement of a dealer".

New When >> Then enhancements include the ability to create and edit voice scenes for Amazon Alexa, create custom buttons and programming for Control4’s recently introduced Intercom Anywhere, and modify schedules for lighting scenes. Additionally, dealers can now unlock their programming added through Control4 Composer Pro software, enabling homeowners to modify and add to pre-existing programming through When >> Then. 

“Homeowners depend on the expertise of our Dealers to design and install reliable, experientially-rich smart homes, but homeowners also want the flexibility to personalize and change scenes and automated events on their own,” continued Plaehn. “We’re empowering homeowners to fine-tune their Control4 experience in ways that matter most to them—how they listen to their favorite music, design lighting scenes, initiate voice control, and secure their homes.”
