Control4 Drivers are now available for WolfPackLite Modular Matrix Systems. HDTV Supply is pleased to announce that we have recently added One-way Control4 Drivers to support our WolfPackLite family of Matrix Systems that uses the RS232 as the control method. The Control4 drivers will work with any Control4 hardware that supports OS version 2.51 and higher and is backwards compatible for about 3 to 4 years as most systems are now running OS 3.0. Setting up a Control4 system is usually not a DIY job and requires that you may have to go through an authorized Control4 dealer so contact Control4 for one in your area.
NOTE: If you are ordering these for a past matrix order please give us that order number so we can make sure they are compatible with the matrix that you ordered. Failure to do so will delay your order. Call us if you have any questions.
Most of HDTV Supplys modular matrix systems are controllable directly through a Control4 SR-250 handheld remote or their Touchpad. The equipment we used to write and test the one-way drivers were the Control4 EA-1 Controller and the Control4 SR-250 remote control. Talk to your Control4 installer about their iOS/Android control app that essentially mimics the layout of the onscreen interface and higher-priced touch-pad controllers. If your Control4 control box is connected to your home network then you can launch the app, sign into your Control4 account and get all the system and automation control right there on your phone or tablet, from anywhere in the house for a fee.
This basic RS232 driver controls only the Ins and Outs of the matrix and is what most users buy. It does not give feedback to the controller of the command being accepted. It is switching control only. It is very simple and has been tested thoroughly.

What is a driver? Drivers are middleware software applications which integrate 3rd party hardware and services into a home automation system. Each control system has its own term for this (Drivers, Modules, Plugins, Profiles) but drivers are the general accepted terminology across the majority of systems. Each system has different architecture so integration to each system has its own unique design.
Custom Designed: We tailored software development using the RS232 serial port on our WolfPackLite line of Modular Matrix Systems.
Service and Support: We understand that you may not have the resources to handle driver support for home automation systems. That is why we have several tiers of support services to suit your support requirements.
Product Certification: Product certification ensures your driver adheres to standards set out by home automation platforms. We work with you through this process to ensure certification is stress free.
