Snap One Helps Expand Partner Success at ISE 2024

At ISE 2024, smart living solutions provider Snap One demonstrated how its Control4 and OvrC ecosystems with expanded KNX support can help international Partners grow their businesses and support residential and commercial projects of all kinds.

Show attendees also experienced Control4 CORE controllers that provides comprehensive smart living control; new real-time surveillance benefits of the AI-powered Luma Insights solution; Control4 Vibrant Linear Lighting with colour temperature and colour slider controls; and WattBox power products with OvrC remote management that provide monitoring and troubleshooting benefits for both Partners and end customers.

“We pride ourselves on being a one-stop shop where professionals can find everything from control and security solutions to new revenue stream opportunities and educational programs that support professional growth,” said Snap One Vice President & General Manager EMEA, Mark Reynolds. “By showcasing how our various product ecosystems are better together, improving user experiences and offering greater integrator access, we are introducing ISE attendees to meaningful new ways to grow their business in 2024 and beyond. With our support, they can evaluate new business building opportunities, including advanced service contracts that require little labor, but deliver major benefits.”

Control4 is Snap One’s flagship control solution, and, in addition to expanded KNX support, the brand recently launched a new CORE lite Controller, available in three different bundled price-points, that was designed specifically to provide single-room installations and expansions with the complete Control4 Experience, providing all the same features and solutions as any other CORE Series Controller. The controllers are compatible with the Control4 Halo remotes, which provide a sleek tactile control experience with far greater functionality and power than traditional TV remotes.

Sold as bundles containing a CORE lite controller and either the Halo Remote, SR260, or NEEO remote (while supplies last), the new options give Snap One Partners an entry-level solution for budget-conscious projects while enabling simple expansions for existing clients.

More support

In terms of key new tech/support, KNX Secure was developed by adapting the KNX IP Routing Gateway driver that works hand-in-hand with the newer KNX secure standards. This is important given the new, upcoming cyber security legislation and the need to adapt to a more secure approach when talking about control systems for the home and commercial installations. Snap One looked to build upon its collaboration with KNX and at the ISE booth, attendees could experience technical examples from Adeo, Consyst, Eelectron, Ekinex, Faradite, Janus Technologies, MDT, Polarbear, QMotion and more. Additionally, there was a side-by-side demonstration of both Composer and ETS working together and also an example of how to monitor and integrate with BACnet and Modus protocols in tandem with KNX and what this means to more advanced HVAC and BMS solutions using Control4.

Show attendees could also see new platform – dubbed Luma Insights – in action, using AI and machine learning to auto-detect significant on-camera incidents and send push alerts to users’ mobile devices. A simple tap on the notification automatically takes users deep within the Control4 app to either the live view page for ongoing incidents or the recordings page to review completed footage. The software also automatically saves snapshots and video clips of triggered events to the cloud for seven days, ensuring that important moments aren’t lost. Best of all, Snap One has created a simple subscription model for access to the AI features provided by Luma Insights.

International Partners were also able to demo the OvrC remote management platform, which enables installers to remotely view and access equipment to perform routine maintenance such as initial setup, firmware updates and remote resets. OvrC is embedded in most IP connected Snap One products and the OvrC Pro agent, which provides visibility/monitoring to the entire network, is included in Araknis routers and Control4 controllers. OvrC is also a standard feature on WattBox rackmount and standalone power productsincluding surge protectors and UPS backups, capturing device data and offering control of outlets.

In addition to Control4 and OvrC innovations, the stand also highlighted how being a Snap One Partner affords access to exclusive top-tier solutions such as Triad professional-grade speakers for home theaters, distributed audio systems, outdoor audio reinforcement and soundbar solutions, in addition to cutting-edge amplifiers and subwoofers. Guests could browse the newest Triad innovations including customisable soundbars, slim subwoofers and dual powered subwoofers, then experience an immersive audio landscape in the booth’s full Triad home theater.
