Overview
DriverCentral is all about simplicity through technology. Therefore, we created the cloud driver for Control4 projects to help streamline the driver installation process. This sophisticated driver is designed to manage Control4 projects and drivers. Simply download the Cloud Driver and link it with a project token to experience the benefit of simple project and driver management.

 

Features

  • Software Updates
    From TVs to AV Receivers, smart lighting to HVAC systems, software needs to be updated. All devices that connect to the internet should be updated to maintain proper levels of security and convenience for the customer. With the DriverCentral cloud driver, a dealer can manage premium drivers from anywhere in the world, without Control4 Composer! Log into driverCentral's License Portal and see what version of every driver from the marketplace a given project is running in real time. If a driver needs to be updated, just click the Force Update button, which notifies the Cloud Driver that you would like to update that driver.
  • Licensing
    No more entering and tracking licenses for projects! Using DriverCentral's License Portal allows a dealer to manage the software licenses they have purchased. Changing a Control4 HC800 to a EA-5? No problem - on the site, press 'Change Controller' and all the software connected to that project will get automatically moved to the new controller.
  • Email Notifications
    Not sure if you put that license into the project on Friday? DriverCentral will send you an email automatically when a driver license has 24 hours left of a trial. You will even get an email when the project hasn't connected to the internet in 24 hours!

 

Requirements
This driver is compatible with Control4 systems only.

 

FAQ

Do I need to download the Cloud Driver for each project?
Yes. Each Cloud Driver manages one project, so each home or project will need a Cloud Driver.

Is the Cloud Driver required for my project?
If you have a Control4 project and purchase Control4 drivers from DriverCentral, you will need to download the Cloud Driver. The Cloud Driver is necessary for Control4 drivers purchased from DriverCentral to operate and update successfully.

What if one of my projects has updated their Control4 system? Can I transfer the licenses I purchased?
Absolutely! In your Project Portal on the DriverCentral site, press 'Change Controller' and all the software connected to that project will get automatically moved to the new controller.
