The Chowmain Haiku Driver for Control4 allows integration of the Haiku based Big Ass Fans and Big Ass Lights into Control4 allowing full 2 way multispeed fan and multi level lighting control over your home.

Integration into Control4 allows control from a single point using Control4's touchscreens, mobile applications, keypads, handheld remote controls and cloud based 4sight remote monitoring and control service.  On top of that it exposes control over the Haiku products in the Control4 ecosystem to provide interaction from other devices in the home. From turning off your fans and lights when you arm your security system to automatically turning them on when it detects you are at home and if the temperature is at an uncomfortable level integration provides you with so many different solutions to make your lifestyle that much easier.

Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? 

  • Integration with Control4 allows you to use control the Fans and Lights from any Control4 user interface including touchscreens, mobile devices, onscreen devices, keypads and 4sight.
  • Program your home to automatically turn off all lights and fans when you arm the security system.  Turn on fans if the temperature is high and you have just returned home.
  • Link lighting and fans to motion sensors to save energy in unoccupied rooms.
  • Tie the fan to your HVAC system to automatically switch between heating, cooling or off smart modes.  This assists with distribution of air based on the HVAC mode.

Why do you only support OS 2.8 and above?
This driver utilises some features not available in earlier OS versions of Control4.
