SALT LAKE CITY--Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ:CTRL), a leading global provider of home automation and control solutions, today began delivery of its expansive new OS 2.7 product suite, which was recently unveiled at the 2015 Integrated Systems Europe show in Amsterdam, NL.
The new Control4 solutions are available worldwide and include: third-generation high-performance Touch Screens with whole-home, high-definition video intercom capability and an enhanced climate control experience; a new Wireless Thermostat co-developed with Aprilaire that has expanded functionality; and an enhanced handheld System Remote for instant access to entertainment and control of the entire home. Additionally, new versions of the Control4 App for Apple iPhones and iPads, as well as for Android phones and tablets, are now available, providing everyone in the family with the ability via Control4's 4Sight service to access, monitor and control their homes from anywhere.
The new Control4 solutions are also accompanied by the release of OS 2.7, which is available for immediate free download, as well as enhancements to Control4's award-winning Composer Express mobile app and Composer Pro software, which are the installation, configuration, and programming tools used daily by Control4's worldwide dealer network.
"The response to our new solutions and OS 2.7 has been extremely positive, and winning a 'Best of ISE 2015' award validates that our products represent a next generation of smart homes powered by Control4," said Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and CEO. "Over the past several months, we have received feedback from more than 500 pre-release installations, which helped us fine-tune and polish the capabilities, elegance, and performance of our new solutions. It is gratifying to begin delivery for general availability as planned so that our existing and new end-customers have access to the best automation solutions from Control4."
In the category of "Best Home AV Control System Hardware," Control4 won a "Best of ISE 2015 Award" from rAVe Publications for its new T3 Touch Screens and user experience.

The T3 Touch Screens also include a high-definition camera, high-quality audio speakers, a blazing-fast 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and twice the display resolution of prior generation models. With a stunning and elegant user interface to manage devices throughout the home and new built-in high-performance HD audio/video intercom capability, homeowners will be able to experience home automation in an entirely new way.
