HomeKit Integration with Control4
HomeKit, A Platform Designed by apple to control Smart Home devices through the Home app and Siri voice assistant. Siri Voice Assistant is available on iPhone, iPad, Home Pod & apple watch.
This Siri Voice Module Driver Integrate Devices which are configured in Control4 with HomeKit, So you can control all Control4 devices via apple’s native Home application. To make this Possible driver relies on the Homebridge server. The Homebridge server Emulates the Control4 devices as HomeKit-Enabled Devices.
Homebridge server can be installed on a wide variety of devices and Platforms. Depending upon what device or platform you have, please follow this link to Setup Homebridge server.
Note: From Version 646 this driver needs a Homebridge Manager driver in the project. Please set up Homebridge Manager Driver before adding Siri Voice Module driver in Project.
- Instant access of Control4 devices from Apple Home app & Control Centre
- Two-way feedback
- Free Remote access through Home App (iPad, Hompod, or Apple TV as hub Required)
- integration with Apple’s iOS Automation Application
- Project Monitoring: Driver has the ability to monitor changes in Project for Device Delete and rename. The same setting will apply to the Homebridge setup without doing anything. This will eliminate the issue when you have rogue devices in Homebridge that you have already deleted or renamed in Control4.

- Ver:664 we have added support for TV accessories. Now users can control TV/Projector (Watch Sources) from the Apple Native Remote app. All Devices in the watch list will be available as an input of TV accessories in the Home App.
Previously we have to create Custom Command to Turn ON/OFF any Source with this update users can create Scenes in Home App for Inputs. Everything is Synced between Control4 and Homebridge.
We have also Fixed a Minor bug with Advance Lighting scene Execution. (22/02/2022)
- Ver:662 In this version we have included a library that will fix Devices in Homebridge with the wrong Device information. This happens when Homebridge is installed on a more secure device platform like Mac, windows with Antivirus software installed and Homebridge can not write the catch file in storage this leads to no Device information available when Homebridge reboots. The Device information Fixing works on the fly and there is no user action needed for this.
