Control4, a leader in affordable IP-based home control and entertainment systems, announced the Control4® Suite Controller SC-200, a compact and affordable in-room controller, unveiled at the 2008 International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show in New York this week.

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.
 
"We believe the SC-200 sets a new standard of affordability for in-room automation,” said Will West, chief executive officer of Control4. “This product enables hotels and resorts to provide cost-effective, easy-to-use automation in every room, truly transforming the guest experience by providing completely new functionality that significantly enhances the customer’s stay, creating differentiation from their competitors.”
 
The control and compatibility is achieved in part by the SC-200 leveraging standards-based communication technology including Ethernet, Wi-Fi and ZigBee® 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 guestroom 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)
