Control4® MyHome App for MAC,PC, Linux & Tablet Now Available!

The Control4® MyHome - PC/MAC/Tablet application announced at CES is now available for download so you can allow virtually any laptop, desktop or tablet device that is capable of running Flash* to be used as an interface for managing a Control4 system.

By turning existing smart phones, tablets and PCs into additional interfaces, Control4 MyHome offers homeowners an affordable way to access and manage their system, while offering dealers an additional platform to deliver greater flexibility and portability for home control to your customers.

In a Control4-enabled smart home, Control4 MyHome allows users to manage their system over any WiFi network, with unique security features that identify and authenticate their Control4 system to their devices. The MyHome - PC/Tablet application supports the following devices:

  • Laptops, desktops and tablets running Windows OS
  • Laptops and desktops running Mac OS
  • Laptops and desktops running Linux OS

There are also MyHome apps that enable control from iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches.

In order to activate the apps, you must purchase an enabling license. Control4 MyHome features a new licensing structure designed to provide you greater flexibility so you can design systems that meet your customers' needs while giving you more revenue opportunity.

Device License: A device license is attached to any supported singular device. If you purchase a device license for an iPhone, and then switch to an iPad your license will be transferred to the iPad and the functionality will no longer be available on the iPhone. Or, if you have a license for your desktop PC and switch to a laptop, the license can be transferred to the new product.

Site License: A site license enables functionality on any number of devices, of any combination. There is no limit to the number of devices using the MyHome application that can be attached to a project.
