Control4 Home Controller HC-300 Announced

Control4 Unveils New Flagship Home Controller HC-300 Featuring High Definition Screen Output, Upgraded Processor, Additional Expansion Ports and Sleek Design

Control4, the leader in affordable IP-based home control and entertainment systems, today unveiled the Control4 Home Controller HC-300. Building upon the success of the best selling first-generation Home Theater Controller, the HC-300 sets the benchmark for whole-home automation products from both a cost and new feature perspective:

  • HD on-screen output, significantly enhancing the visually intuitive Control4 graphic interface for controlling the home
  • An entirely new industrial design with an anodized black aluminum chassis and a glossy black faceplate circled with warm metallic nickel accents
  • Two serial ports (DB9) for increased flexibility in controlling serial-capable devices
  • Increased processing capabilities for handling larger media databases and other processor intensive applications
  • WiFi expansion capabilities via USB WiFi adapter accessory kit
  • Backwards compatibility with all Control4 products

“The Home Controller HC-300 sits at the core of our value proposition of delivering transformative and affordable home automation and control,” said Will West, Chief Executive Officer of Control4. “We are pleased to roll out a major evolution of this foundational and best selling Control4 product line. We have designed the Home Controller HC-300 to not only be elegant but also to maximize the digital home experience across the board from high definition screen graphics to optimized processing and expansion capabilities.”

The Home Controller HC-300 is the central building block for a smart home, making it easy for anyone to add intelligent control to a home at a truly affordable price. An HC-300 replaces on average more than four traditional remotes and delivers easy navigation and operation through a single universal Control4 system remote control.

The Home Controller HC-300 offers multiple infrared and serial connections and video sensing for easy home theater integration. In addition, the HC-300 offers a comprehensive range of standards-based communication technology including Ethernet, WiFi, and ZigBee mesh networking and expansion through two standard USB 2.0 ports.

In addition to managing the home theater, the Home Controller HC-300 is capable of controlling multi-room music, smart lighting, advanced temperature control, security, and many other home automation sub-systems. For a complete listing of specifications visit http://www.control4.com.

The HC-300 is expected to ship in July with a list price of $699.
