Control4 allows for you to easily integrate infra red based audio/visual devices but it does not give you the ability to integrate TCP/IP based devices easily.

This is where the Chowmain generic tcp command driver comes in. With customisable actions you can now easily fire off TCP or HTTP commands to any device or service contactable from your network.


  • Everything is programmed from the actions tab
  • HTTP/HTTPS GET & POST commands
  • Supports URL encoded usernames, passwords and ports eg
  • TCP commands (ascii based)
  • UDP commands (ascii based)
  • Definable IP Address, Port and Command
  • Command can contain special character delimiters such as carriage returns or line feeds (eg \r\n).
  • Can be used to quickly integrate devices not normally integrated within Control4’s driver wizard by adding tcp commands to their events page.


Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver?
Tis driver is useful to fire commands to shut down NAS drives, fire off camera triggers, fire off commands to your PC using event ghost.

Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver?
You can also create quick simple IP based AV devices by firing off commands on the AV event. Though this is not substitution for a real IP driver it allows non driverworks developers to create simple drivers for their jobs where they cannot afford to hire a driverworks developer.

Why do you only support OS 2.6 and above?
OS 2.6 offers a superior security encryption algorithm and a new and improved driver format. We have decided to only utilise this new format to ensure that the integrity of this driver is not compromised and that we can provide the best dealer/user experience available.

Do you offer showroom discounts?
We offer dealers a free showroom licence for demonstration and educational purposes.  See link below for T&C's and signup procedure.
