Snap One unveils new products
At a virtual partner summit held earlier this month, Snap One unveiled an array of new products across the control, audio, and remote monitoring categories that further the company’s mission to serve as the one-stop supplier that partners can depend on worldwide.
Snap One executive vice president of sales, Ryan Marsh, explains: “At Snap One, we strive to provide the broadest portfolio of best-in-class products so that professionals can depend on us when designing experiences across the residential, commercial and security sectors.”
OvrC Pro + Control4 OS3
Snap One recently introduced significant updates to Control4 software and hardware. One notable evolution is the addition of OvrC Pro capabilities to Control4 OS3 so that every OS3 system can now be remotely managed using OvrC without the need to add additional hardware. Additionally, with increased notification accuracy and improved Wireless Site Management within OvrC, partners will enjoy faster, more efficient workflows.
“As projects become increasingly complex and customer expectations evolve, remote monitoring and management is now more important than ever,” says Evan Marty, director of product management.
“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.”
Snap One will release the latest Control4 software, OS 3.3.0, featuring a host of added capabilities including a new, highly anticipated native lighting colour wheel user interface for fast and intuitive control of tunable white and colour lighting. Partners can create colour presets that customers can personalise, and customers can quickly change the mood of a room by controlling lighting colour using their Control4 mobile app or touchscreens.
“Subtle changes in the colour of lighting in your home can change the mood and even add to your well-being,” says 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. Energise your workspace with light matching noon-day sun. With the addition of color control and tunable white, all this is possible in Control4.”
OS 3.3.0 also improves how quickly customers can connect to their Control4 smart home using their Control4 mobile app when they are away. These same improvements enable partners to connect faster and work more efficiently with their clients from anywhere.
Control4 CORE Series Controllers
Snap One also teased a brand-new line of Control4 CORE Series Controllers that boast faster processors, more zones of built-in audio, higher quality Digital to Analogue Converters, and a 4K on-screen user interface. The new Core series includes three versions for different sized projects that require varying features and functionalities. They will start shipping next quarter.
Episode 2.1 Active Soundbar & Wireless Subwoofer Bundle
Snap One also announced new audio offerings coming later this year, including the release of an Episode 2.1 Active Soundbar and Episode Wireless Subwoofer Bundle. The active soundbar will include optical, analogue, and HDMI inputs, and will come pre-paired to the soundbar for hassle-free installation.
Bluetooth is built-in for seamless music streaming from mobile devices, and the included IR remote makes control a breeze. The 8″ down-firing Wireless Subwoofer will be powered by a built-in 80W amplifier and can be placed anywhere within 30 feet of the soundbar for maximum install flexibility.
Triad PDX Architectural Speakers
The new Triad PDX Architectural speakers, available in Q2, will ensure both incredible audio performance and simple, efficient installation. The new series will include PushLock technology that allows partners to install and remove speakers quickly and easily, and even change the motor unit without removing the cradle from the ceiling. The premium PDX series will include eight in-ceiling speakers and three in-wall speakers in three different performance levels, designed to satisfy the listening needs of any customer.
