Description

 

Overview

Colour Wheel for Control4 is a unique driver from Janus technology providing a sleek, colourful, and intuitive web interface for Control4 RGB, RGBW and Tuneable White (WW) Lighting drivers.

Running as a service on any Control4 touchscreen supporting webview, this is more than just a driver, offering a totally new and hugely enriched user experience.

The screen is dominated by the spectacular colour wheel, which allows for the easy control of multiple lighting channels, adapting to type of light controller – RGB, RGBW, WW. There is support for 8 scenes per room, with on-screen visual scene colour indication, and simple selection. The interface complements the existing Control4 lighting screen and is selectable from any T3 or T4 touch screen.

What interfaces does it work on?

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

Currently, Color Wheel and other webview drivers are only available on T3 screens, and not on iOS / Android Apps due to limitations set by Control4.

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! Ensuring that your device is on the same local network as your Control4 processor, in your device’s native browser navigate to http://controller_ip/driver/webview_controller/dist to access the Colour Wheel interface.

For iOS devices, you can favourite this web page to your home screen by tapping the upload icon, then tapping Add to Home Screen.

WARNING due to web page caching on iOS, after updating Colour Wheel you must either re-create this favourite or restart your device to access the new updates from your iOS device.

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)

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 Color 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 Color 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 Color 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.

Color 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 Color Wheel to the room by pressing and holding on the UI icon from a T3 touch panel.

Will you be supporting more lights in the future?

If you want to use a driver with Color 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!
