Generic Relay Driver (IR)

Control4 allows for you to easily integrate infra red based audio/visual devices but it does not give you the ability to integrate infra red based motorized/relay devices.

This is where the Chowmain generic relay driver comes in.  With customizable properties where you can enter in IR HEX codes you can now integrate infra red based motorized/relay devices into Control4 with the correct icon.

This driver will only work on Control4 OS 2.6 and above.
