Pro Control Releases Two-Way Drivers Across a Spectrum of Devices

New Drivers Enable Integration With Sonos(R), Lutron(R) Caseta(TM), Wirepath(TM) IP Cameras, and More

SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- Sept. 9, 2014 -- Pro Control today announced that several new two-way drivers are available with the release of the latest version of Pro Control Studio(R) programming software. Developed by Pro Control, these new drivers enable seamless, intuitive control over a broad spectrum of products including Sonos(R) wireless audio systems, Lutron(R) Caseta(TM) lighting controls, and Anthem(R) receivers, as well as Sony projectors, JVC projectors, Epson(R) projectors, and Wirepath(TM) IP cameras. Using the new drivers, integrators can provide clients with powerful control and interactive functionality via their Pro Control Pro24.z remote or iOS device running the ProPanel app.


The new Sonos driver simplifies the control and feedback of Sonos audio components, providing integrators and end users an incredibly powerful solution for selecting songs, storing favorites, and adjusting audio settings on up to 16 media players. The new two-way driver allows the Pro Control ProLink.z processor to control audio functions directly on one of the world's most widely used streaming audio solutions. Installers can easily implement the new solution without any licensing or instance expenses, resulting in a powerful, cost-effective innovation for today's wireless audio installations.

The new Lutron Caseta two-way driver integrates with Lutron's latest product offerings, including the new Caseta Wireless dimmers and Serena(R), Sivoia(R) QS Triathlon(R), and select Sivoia QS Wireless shades. With the new driver, integrators can provide end users with simple, reliable, and energy-saving connected-home control over all aspects of their environment in a single system, giving integrators a powerful offering for lighting and shade control at an affordable price point.

"Our latest software release speaks to Pro Control's commitment to providing an affordable whole-home control solution with amazingly powerful integration options," said Mike Everett, general manager of Pro Control. "Now, with two-way drivers for products like Sonos media streamers, Lutron Caseta lighting, and Wirepath IP cameras, we are doing more than simply responding to demand, we are delivering to our dealers a complete and affordable control solution."
