Control4 Hospitality OS 2.5.3 adds support for the company’s Wireless Music Bridge, which allows guests to stream music from their smartphones, tablets, or other portable devices via Bluetooth. Wireless Music Bridge gives listeners access to their private music libraries as well as streaming music from services like Pandora, Spotify, and Rdio. This seamless solution does not require a physical dock and preserves the full browsing and app capabilities of the mobile device. Guests just walk in the door, pull out their phone or tablet, and fire up their favorite playlist; the Control4 Wireless Music Bridge allows nearly every smart device to bridge music, podcasts, news, sports and audio books into the hotel room’s audio system.
To ensure privacy and security for hotel guests, the system dynamically creates a unique access code upon check-in, which is only valid for the duration of their stay.
In addition, the new software update adds support for Telkonet’s EcoCentral energy management software including EcoInsight and EcoWave thermostats.
Control4 is also introducing a new streamlined version of its thermostat control for hospitality, which allows guests to enter a single temperature set point instead of separate set points for heating and cooling, making it even easier to control room temperature.
