What interfaces does it work on?

Colour Wheel appears where you have placed it via navigator (for OS2, it will also appear under the Services menu).

Colour Wheel is available on any T3/T4 screens in your project. For systems running OS v3.2 or later, you will also be able to access Colour Wheel from the iOS and Android apps.

You can also view the interface from any browser, by navigating to the following URL, substituting in the IP address of your main processor;

http://controller_ip/driver/webview_controller/dist

Can I use Colour Wheel from my phone/tablet?

You can! From OS3.2, you can now access Colour Wheel from the Control4 iOS and Android apps.

Which drivers support effects?

Effects via Colour Wheel utilises custom commands on the dimmer drivers. The current list of drivers that support effects are:

  • ArtNet DMX RGB / RGB-M (ExtraVeg, available from the C4 cloud)
  • Aurora AOne RGB (coming soon!)
  • Axxess DCM5
  • Collingwood Lighting RGB/RGBW (available here)
  • LiteWave wLightBox RGB/RGBW (available here)
  • Philips Hue coloured lights (available from the C4 cloud)
  • Shelly Iot RGB/RGBW/CT (Janus variant only, available here)
  • TP-Link Kasa Smart LED Light Strip (available here)

If you want to use effects with a driver that currently doesn’t have any in Colour Wheel, please contact us quoting the driver name and download link and we will be happy to add support quickly!

What do I need to install?

The main driver to install is the Colour Wheel WebView – this provides the webview interface and automatically scans your system for compatible lights.

With the exception of Enhanced Lighting Interface, you should set up your compatible drivers in the usual way described in their documentation.

For Enhanced Lighting Interface compatible drivers, you should add 1 instance of Enhanced Lighting Interface for each light fixture you have.
From there, you need to set the properties Colour Mode to describe the type of this fixture (RGB/RGBW/WW), and use the device selectors to link the correct channels to the existing dimmer drivers.

Can I place Colour Wheel within the lights experience menu?

Unfortunately, the Control4 UI prohibits devices that are not specifically light drivers from appearing within the lights experience menu.

Colour Wheel can, be shown alongside Comfort, Listen, Security and Watch. This can be customised from the room navigator interface in composer.

For systems running OS3, you can also favourite Colour Wheel to the room by pressing and holding on the UI icon.

Will you be supporting more lights in the future?

If you want to use a driver with Colour Wheel that isn’t currently supported, please contact us quoting the driver name and download link and we will be happy to add support quickly!

I would like Colour Wheel to be translated into my language

If you would like translations in your language added, please contact us to discuss how we can achieve this for you.
