Control4 Adds New Apps
Control4, a developer of IP-based home control systems, picked up a variety of new apps developed for its 4Store marketplace and OS 2.0 platform, bringing the number of Control4 apps to more than 100.
The apps were announced at CEDIA Expo last week.
Most dealers and integrators don’t make money selling the apps, but they do serve to increase end-user engagement with the Control4 products and, in some cases, lead to the sale of additional hardware. “The apps help bring dealers into more jobs,” said Eric Smith, co-founder and CTO of Control4. Dealers who develop their own apps, though, can sell them on 4Store and receive royalties
