Control4 & GUDE

The perfect smart home with little effort:
Simple integration of GUDE power solutions

Modern smart homes offer homeowners the opportunity to benefit from these advantages within their own four walls:

  • More comfort and convenience in everyday life. For example, lights, shutters and heating can be controlled automatically so that you no longer have to worry about them.
  • Owners can increase the security of their property. This can be implemented using surveillance cameras and alarm systems for example, which can also be accessed while travelling.
  • Smart homes help residents to save energy and costs. Thanks to automatic switch-offs and programmed time schedules, power-consuming appliances are switched off.
  • High-quality AV systems such as smart TVs, voice-controlled speakers and streaming players are used for entertainment purposes and can be set up and automated entirely according to the user’s needs.

The Control4 software allows GUDE’s intelligent power solutions to be seamlessly integrated into any smart home installation. Thanks to freely available drivers, Control4 automation and control systems can be supplemented with reliable monitoring and control of the Cologne-based manufacturer’s power distribution units.

This considerably expands the range of functions of the intelligent home control system, while at the same time allowing simple and intuitive operation. Users can use the IP socket strips in conjunction with Control4:

  • Query the status of all load outputs
  • Programme switching sequences individually
  • Switch load outputs individually
  • Remotely or automatically restart each load output (remote reboot)
  • Set sensor values for effective environmental monitoring (temperature, humidity)

The free Control4 drivers can be obtained directly from our software partner Chowmain.

OvrC is the cloud management platform from SnapOne and Control4. It was developed to support residential and IT integrators in the remote monitoring and control of their devices.

With OvrC and GUDE’s IP power solutions, you can switch your devices on or off and restart them remotely. All without costly service technician visits to your customer’s premises.

These problems are solved remotely, simply, quickly and efficiently:

  • Downtime of streamboxes, LAN switches and other IT and AV devices
  • Cost-intensive service calls
  • Long journeys to customers
  • Overheating of AV and IT devices

The switched PDUs from GUDE are integrated into OvrC in just 3 steps. Smart home devices can therefore be controlled remotely in no time at all, ensuring their reliable power supply. Read the simple step-by-step instructions here:
