Chowmain has been open for business for 2 months now and boy has time flown. At the time of writing we have developed and released 15 different drivers to market through our distributor Extra Vegetables and had numeous manufacturers approach us to help them integrate their product and get Control4 certification. We will also be attending the Control4 Dealer Conferences in New Zealand and in Australia next week. Feel free to come up and say hi if you're attending as well.
We have a ton of new drivers released since we first launched.
We've invented technology that will help manage your energy consumption, make Control4 talk to you over your speakers, make Control4 awake of the weather forecasts and much more.
Licences for our driver's can be purchased through Extra Vegetables and comes with all of their perks including trial licences, one to show one to go promotions and 24 hour licence purchases/check in/check out capabilities.
