Overview

Chowmain has integrated the range of Belkin Wemo Wifi based Smart Home products into Control4 with two way control and feedback.  This provides easy to retrofit solutions for smart plug control, inwall switch and inwall dimmer control.  The hardware is extremely affordable with outlets starting at $24.99, light switches at $49.99 and dimmers at $59.99 MSRP.  It definately adds value to any Control4 installation.

Another cool feature involves the Insight switch which can be utilised for energy monitoring and management using our driver and Control4.  It can also be useful for device health monitoring and also for automatic selection of manually controlled AV devices like Playstation 4’s, Xbox One’s and Wii U’s.

FAQ

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

  • In Australia we do not have access to the Control4 outlet switch. As such we cannot easily integrate floor lamps, bedside table lights, fans, electric heaters, towel rails, etc easily. This driver fills in the gap to integrate these devices into the Control4 system.
  • This driver allows connection to the Control4 outlet light driver and any relay based binding. As such you can get the correct icon on your navigator and also bind it to your AV device to minimise standby power.
  • This driver can also detect power usage statistics from the WeMo insight switch.  This can be useful for programming energy management based actions.
  • This driver allows connection to any Control4 keypad for ease of use programming.
  • On WeMo Insight Switches you can turn on your Xbox One, Playstation 4 or Wii U using their controller and have Control4 automatically turn on the system to the right inputs.  Turn off the console using the console's controller or power button and have Control4 automatically turn the room off.
