Control4 Visual Navigator is a unique driver from Janus Technology that allows you to view and control the state of devices across your entire home from any T3 touch screen!

Utilising Control4's webview technology, Visual Navigator can display the state of all sensors, relays, lights, cameras and security partitions in your project on a floorplan of your site - while allowing control of all drivers from a familiar interface.

Visual Navigator uses the concept of layers. Each layer corresponds to a distinct set of driver types within your Control4 project (e.g. Sensors, Lighting, Security...). 



Webview Compatibility

The webview interface is compatible with any Control4 T3 touch screen.

Configuration of the driver from a browser is required prior to operation. You can access the webview via the following URL, substituting in the IP address of your main processor;

What interfaces does it work on?

Visual Navigator appears where you have placed it via navigator (for OS2, it will also appear under the Services menu).

Currently, Visual Navigator and other webview drivers are only available on T3 screens, and not on iOS / Android Apps due to limitations set by Control4.

You can also view the interface from any browser, by navigating to the following URL, substituting in the IP address of your main processor;



Can I use Visual Navigator from my phone/tablet?

You can! Ensuring that your device is on the same local network as your Control4 processor, in your device's native browser navigate to http://<controller_ip>/c4z/janus_floorplan_dc/www/dist to access the Visual Navigator interface.

For iOS devices, you can favourite this web page to your home screen by tapping the upload icon, then tapping Add to Home Screen.

WARNING due to web page caching on iOS, after updating Visual Navigator you must either re-create this favourite or restart your device to access the new updates from your iOS device.


What do I need to install?

The main driver to install is the Visual Navigator driver – this provides the webview interface and automatically scans your system for compatible lights.

With the exception of Enhanced Lighting Interface, you should set up your compatible drivers in the usual way described in their documentation.

For Enhanced Lighting Interface compatible drivers, you should add 1 instance of Enhanced Lighting Interface for each light fixture you have.
From there, you need to set the properties Colour Mode to describe the type of this fixture (RGB/RGBW/WW), and use the device selectors to link the correct channels to the existing dimmer drivers.


Will you be supporting more devices in the future?

If you want to use a driver with Visual Navigator that isn’t currently supported, please contact us quoting the driver name and download link and we will be happy to add support quickly!


Do you offer a free demo license for dealer showrooms?

Yes - we offer a free showroom demo license via the DriverCentral showroom project.
