Control4's flash based user interfaces (Control4 5", 7", MyHome PC and Onscreen interfaces) have the ability to change their wallpaper. These interfaces already come with preloaded wallpapers but sometimes they just don't suit your mood, taste or decor.
Making your own wallpapers are quite easy. You just have to make a JPEG image to the correct resolution and have a thumbnail for it. Resolutions are as follows:
|Display Type||Thumbnail Resolution||Full Size Resolution|
Once the wallpapers have been created. You then need to copy the files over to the correct directorys located on the Control4 Director in your home.
You can find the IP address for your director by following these steps on your Control4 touchscreen or onscreen.
- Click on More
- Click on Settings
- Click on About
- Record down the IP Address for Director
Once you have the IP address you can then browse to the network share via your computer.
- Open Windows Explorer
- In the address bar type in \\IPOFDIRECTOR\skins\wallpaper
You should then see a bunch of folders. c5 is for the 5" touchscreens, os_hd is for the onscreen display, t10 is the 10" touchscreen and z7 is the 7" touchscreen.
Copy the full size resolution images into those folders. Inside of those folders you will also notice a thumbnail folder. Copy the thumbnails into those folders.
