Control4 Launches Low-Cost Hospitality Suite Controller
Control4 announces the Control4 Suite Controller SC-200, a compact and affordable in-room controller, unveiled at the 2008 International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show. The SC-200 expands Control4's already comprehensive suite of automation solutions for hospitality.
The SC-200 is small and sleek, yet powerful enough to control the in-room television, video-on-demand, music, smart lighting, temperature, and concierge and security systems. The new controller is very affordable, allowing properties to automate every guestroom. Guests will enjoy a more personalized hotel experience while at the same time reducing energy waste and creating competitive market advantages.
The control and compatibility is achieved in part by the SC-200 leveraging standards-based communication technology including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and ZigBee(R) mesh networking.
Key SC-200 features include:
- Ships with Control4 Remote (SRH-150 RF) and controls AV equipment, HVAC lighting and many other systems in the guest room without line-of sight issues
- On-screen HD-enhanced Control4 graphic interface
- Audio outputs for streaming audio from a digital music collection to a TV or AV receiver
- Standard Ethernet, Wi-Fi and ZigBee communications
- USB port for external storage or Wi-Fi network adapter
- Controls a wide range of devices through serial, IR, IP and ZigBee control
- Audio input for any audio source, including iPod or other MP3 players
- Sleek design enables versatile mounting and easy installation (extremely small form factor allows flexible placement behind flat panel displays)
