Amazon Echo / Echo Dot Driver for Control4

Epic Systems

NOW WITH SUPPORT FOR CONTROL4 OS3 and GEN 3 ECHOS / DOTS / SPOTS!

This driver allows you to trigger custom-defined Control4 programming events by simply speaking to your Amazon Echo!

Key Differences between our Amazon Echo driver and Control4's:

1) Ours DOES NOT require an annual 4sight license (at a cost of $100/year)!

2) Ours makes a DIRECT CONNECTION within your home network between the Echo(s) and Control4.  Control4's relies on a cloud-based integration, which has already proven to be both SLOWER and LESS RELIABLE.  There have been multiple reports on the dealer and user forums of long delays and outright failures when responding to voice commands using Control4's Alexa Skill.

3) Ours auto-generates programming events for each command that you define - ON, OFF, UP, DOWN, and SET.  Control4's only gives you ON and OFF.  UP and DOWN events are very useful for doing things like raising and lowering blinds, light levels, volumes, temperatures, etc...SET is very useful for setting specific light levels, shade levels, volume percentages, etc.

Note: Driver license is per Control4 Project, not per Echo.  Driver supports multiple Echos in the same project.  This is a standard Control4 driver, no additional hardware required.  Driver installation requires a Control4 dealer.

We do not offer a 48-hour trial, however we do offer a 7-DAY NO QUESTIONS ASKED REFUND POLICY IF YOU ARE UNSATISFIED IN ANY WAY!
