On March 11, Snap One held a 45-minute conference announcing a slew of new products from its Control4, Episode and Triad brands. In addition, the company announced new updates to its OvrC platform, as well as enhancements to the Control 4 OS3 operating system which include added options from OvrC Pro, as well as enhanced color tuning options for lighting.
“As projects become increasingly complex and customer expectations evolve, remote monitoring and management is now more important than ever,” comments Evan Marty, director of product management at Snap One.
“We know that OvrC has become vital to the success of businesses and we’re excited to share the new updates that make the ecosystem better, faster, and more reliable.”
The latest version, delivered without the need of a hardware update, will now include an easy-to-use color wheel interface for users, with the ability for integrators to apply preset lighting scenes for customers in the system. Users will also be able to change the color temperature of the lighting themselves through the Control 4 app on their phones.
“Subtle changes in the color of lighting in your home can change the mood and even add to your well-being,” notes Margie Meyers, principal product manager at Snap One.
“Imagine changing your ceiling into a night sky to prepare you for bed or waking up to a sunrise. Energize your workspace with light matching noon-day sun. With the addition of color control and tunable white, all this is possible in Control4. Our beta partners have been delighted by the versatility we’ve provided in the programming of color control. Our Partners have been asking for this feature and we spent months getting it just right. We are so excited to deliver this to the world.”
New Products for Control 4, Triad and Episode Announced
Snap One also teased several new products from its various brands, such as several new Core Series controllers being made available to address a range of projects for integrators. According to the announcement, these will be available for purchase in the second quarter of 2022.
Snap One then announced a new Episode 2.1 active soundbar and wireless subwoofer, before wrapping up with the reveal of the Triad PDX line of architectural speakers. Marsh then concluded the proceedings, stating that through Snap One’s commitment to research and development, the company will continue to support the custom integration community.
“2021 was an exciting year for us with our rebrand, IPO announcement, investments in our Quality & Innovation Lab, and the introduction of the Partner Pledge program, among many other milestones. This year, our goal is to continue to invest significantly on new product development,” concludes Marsh.
“This year, we’re enhancing our products and platforms, adding even more popular brands to our portals and Partner stores, and making everything available in one easily accessible place.”
