Cedia is always the place for big tech news and progress and we’re hoping that 2019 is no different.
2017 brought us “When > Then” programming, allowing the user to add scheduled events, logic and more to their Control4 system; a feature often restricted to the user asking for a feature to be added by their dealer at a cost. This meant that, for the first time, a professionally installed, reliable, system could be tuned by the end-user.
Also, the acquisition of Triad gave Control4 dealers a great new range of speakers, amplifiers and audio matrices to install with fantastic reliability and sound quality.
More natively supported music services were added such as iHeartRadio and Spotify to join the list along with Deezer, Napster, Pandora, TIDAL, and Tune In.
2018: Alexa integration with the ability to adjust the commands yourself.
2019: With the acquisition of Neeo remote control, dealers and clients alike have their fingers firmly crossed for something special, but Control4 always keeps its cards close to its chest so we can only speculate. Maybe Apple music support?
Cedia Expo runs from 10th September to 14th in Denver Colorado. Watch this space for Control4 news.
