Solutions to Drive Interoperability

Certified Drivers

When a product is added to your Control4 system, a driver is installed to communicate information about the device to your system. But well before that happens, we have worked with the manufacturer to test and certify the driver to ensure optimal integration. We've certified thousands of drivers for products ranging from flat panel TVs, projectors and disc players to audio/video receivers, thermostats, heating and cooling systems, window shades and security cameras, and more.

Simple Device Discovery Protocol

Control4® Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) is software that is built into a manufacturer's product to make integration with a Control4 system easy and seamless. With SDDP, the Control4 home automation system automatically finds and adds SDDP-enabled devices to the platform, dramatically reducing complexity and the installation time for Control4 dealers. Manufacturers can market the SDDP-enabled products as "automation-ready" and consumers can rest assured that their favorite solutions, regardless of brand, can be added to their Control4 systems. The growing momentum for Control4's platform and its SDDP Technology represents a broadening interest on the part of manufacturers to play a deeper role in the connected home. Great news for homeowners!
