Exciting News for our Control4 Home Owners
Today, Control4 announced the release of their new operating system, "3.0".
This is not just a minor everyday update that tweaks
the look of the layout or fixes a bug, this is a fundamental
"reimagining" of the way we'll use our Control4 systems. Ever since
Charlie Kindle joined Control4 from Amazon, we've been waiting for the
something major, and this is it.
As you'll see from the images,
the look and feel of the OS has had a total overhaul and after a brief
look at the dealer information that we've received, it's clear there is a
major update to the flexibility of the system.
Summing up what Charlie Kindel says about the release is simple... for the user, it removes complexity and adds flexibility.
no longer will we be tied to the rigid layout we've all become used
to... now it will be possible to set up the app or touch panel layout
for each room in a way that makes sense specifically for that room or
area with shortcuts or dashboard layouts.
There are a couple of important things to bear in mind about this news.
we've only heard this news today and we can't download the new OS until
28th May. We will of course update our systems in store and at home
straight away so we get the answers to your questions as quickly as
possible, but please bear with us until we've had a chance to live with
it for a while... we might not have all the answers straight away.
we've been installing Control4 for many years now, so there are a lot
of systems out there, some of them very big, and we know that the bigger
your system the more impatient you'll be to upgrade, BUT, let's face
it, it's very much a first world problem having to wait a while longer!
Our policy of upgrading smaller systems first means that we'll be fully
up to speed by the time we have to deal with the more complex larger
systems, which makes for an altogether better experience all round.
If you already have a Control4 system controlling your Home Cinema or as a whole home automation system, we'll be in touch about this update soon. If you're considering a system that can control everything from your music to lights, blinds, the garden water feature and much more, please get in touch and we'll be delighted to show you how Control4 can tame technology in your home.
