Installer Tips
· Once you make your connections, be sure to Setup Communications
· We have added a ‘hide-all’ feature to automatically hide the driver in ALL rooms so you do not need to go to each room in Control4 and hide the receiver

1) Install all driver c4z files in your Control4 drivers’ folder.
2) Add driver into project by searching for Mark Levinson and choosing the No. 526 driver. The 523 and 526 use the same API
3) Make connections
4) Click on Driver Actions: Setup Communication
DriverCentral (for auto update)
Step-by-step tutorial available at

1) Create your project in the project portal. This will generate your project token.
