At a virtual partner summit, Snap One unveiled an array of new products across the control, audio, and remote monitoring categories. Included was the latest Control4 software release, OS 3.3.0, confirming a host of added capabilities including a new, highly anticipated native lighting colour wheel user interface for fast and intuitive control of tunable white and colour lighting.

Partners can create colour presets that customers can personalize, and include lighting colour as an element of lighting scenes and programming. Customers can also quickly change the mood of a room by controlling lighting colour using their Control4 mobile app or touchscreens.

“Subtle changes in the colour of lighting in your home can change the mood and even add to your well-being,” said Margie Meyers, Principal Product Manager at Snap One. “Imagine changing your ceiling into a night sky to prepare you for bed or waking up to a sunrise. Energize your workspace with light matching noon-day sun. With the addition of colour control and tunable white, all this is possible in Control4. Our beta partners have been delighted by the versatility we’ve provided in the programming of colour control. Our Partners have been asking for this feature and we spent months getting it just right. We are so excited to deliver this to the world.”

OS 3.3.0 will also improve how quickly customers can connect to their Control4 smart home using their Control4 mobile app when they are away. These same improvements enable Partners to connect faster and work more efficiently with their clients from anywhere.

Also new for Control4 software and hardware is the addition of OvrC Pro capabilities to Control4 OS3, allowing every OS3 system to be remotely managed using OvrC without the need to add additional hardware.

During the summit, Snap One teased a new line of Control4 CORE Series Controllers (pictured above) that boast faster processors, more zones of built-in audio, higher quality Digital to Analogue Converters, and a 4k user interface. The new Core series includes three versions for different sized projects that require varying features and functionalities, and will start shipping next quarter.

The brand also announced new audio offerings coming later this year, including the release of an Episode 2.1 Active Soundbar and Episode Wireless Subwoofer Bundle. The Bluetooth soundbar will include optical, analogue, and HDMI inputs, and will come pre-paired to the soundbar for easy installation. The sub features an 8-inch down-firing driver powered by a built-in 80-watt amplifier.

“We’re introducing new products, solutions and updates throughout 2022 that support our goal to be the integrator’s most valued and most trusted partner,” said Ryan Marsh, Executive Vice President of Sales at Snap One. “At Snap One, we strive to provide the broadest portfolio of best-in-class products so that professionals can depend on us when designing experiences across the residential, commercial and security sectors.”
