Control4 driver for smart power solutions from GUDE

Control4’s successful software for smart home installations now enables seamless integration of GUDE’s intelligent power distribution solutions. Thanks to Control4 drivers available free of charge, Control4 can be supplemented with the control and monitoring of PDUs (Power Distribution Units) from the German hardware manufacturer. Devices connected to the Expert Power Control solutions, such as audio, video, lighting or air conditioning systems, can now be monitored, controlled and configured in no time via the personalized and uniform Control4 interface.

Functions for smart home users

  • Status query for all load outputs
  • Individually programmable switching sequences
  • Switching of load outputs
  • Remote reboot of each load output
  • Setting of sensor values for effective environmental monitoring (temperature, humidity)

The new Control4 drivers for home and business AV environments are compatible with all current Expert Power Control PDUs. They are available immediately from the website of Chowmain.

Summary: Using GUDE’s smart power solutions in combination with the US-based company’s smart home software Control4 allows sophisticated AV integrators to monitor, control and manage installations with little effort. In addition to lower total cost of ownership, this also results in reduced response times to unusual events in the installation.
