Exciting News for our Control4 home owners!
Todaay, Control4 announced the release of their new opperating system, "3.0".
This is not just a minor everyday update that tweeks 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.
So... no longer will we be tied to the rigid layout we've all beclome 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.
One... 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.
Two... 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 about getting the upgrade, BUT, let's face it, it's very much a first world problem having to wait a while! 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 maks for an altogether better experience all round.
If you already have a Control4 system controlling your Home Cinema or whole home automation system, we'll be in touch about this update soon. If you're considering a whole home system that controls everything from your music to lights, blinds and the graden water feature, please get in touch and we'll be delighted to demonstrate how Control4 can tame technology in your home.
