FREE Dealer Showroom Licencing

Chowmain drivers for Control4 push the Control4 home automation system to new heights with features not normally offered with Control4 out of box.  Our goal is to make you, the Control4 dealer, as high tech and profitable using Control4 with Chowmain drivers.

To do that we have changed our policy on dealer showroom licencing from a 10% discount to 100% FREE.

This is to encourage you to learn how each one of our drivers works and to also demonstrate these cool drivers to your customers in your showroom.  Our amazing drivers could make or break your sale! That is how advanced they are.  There are some T&C's on obtaining the licence which are outlined below in our FAQ.

Dealer Showroom FAQ

What is a dealer showroom licence?
A dealer showroom licence is a free licence that is universally unlocks all Chowmain drivers.  The licence is designed for you, the dealer, to familiarize yourself with the functionality of Chowmain drivers and to demonstrate the drivers to customers in your showroom.  We want you dealers to understand our software and provide your customers with the best Control4 experience possible through our drivers.

How does it work?
The one licence can be used on any Chowmain driver to unlock it.  Once it is used for the first time it is locked down to the MAC address of that particular Control4 controller and cannot be reassigned to another controller.  

How much is it and how many licences do i get?
A dealer will get a single licence for FREE.  The one licence will work on as many Chowmain drivers as you want in the one showroom project.  Note it will not work with drivers developed by other 3rd party developers.
