Control4 Corporation, a leader in affordable IP-based home control and entertainment systems, today announced the release of the Control4® 7-inch POE Wall Mount Touch Screen. The new touch screen expands the product family, consisting of the Control4® 10.5-inch Wall Mount Touch Screen and the Control4® Mini Touch Screen. Combining new
ergonomic styling with an easy-to-use interface, the Control4 7-inch POE Wall Mount
Touch Screen offers convenient control of whole-home automation, including a home theater, multi-room music, advanced temperature control, security integration and smart lighting.
"By rounding out our wall mount touch screen options with a 7-inch screen, we provide increased flexibility on price, size and functionality for additional rooms in the home," said Will West, Chief Executive Officer at Control4. "We're pleased to offer a new industrial design to the touch screen family with this release, adding elegance to the whole-home automation experience along with increased performance capabilities."
Control4's new touch screen is a 16x9 format that has three times the display area of the Control4 Mini Touch Screen and is capable of running the screen saver functionality that turns the touch panel into a picture frame. Users can now be greeted in a unique way when a touch screen is not in use. Once the photo screensaver has been enabled on a system, Control4® Composer Home Edition software can be used to add or remove pictures and configure display settings.
The Control4 7-inch POE Wall Mount Touch Screen is expected to ship in July 2008, with a US MSRP of $1,195. A Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) version will be available later this year with a US MSRP of $1,195. For a complete listing of 7-inch In-Wall Touch Screen product specifications, visit www.control4.com.
