MyQ Control4 Driver and URC Module Updated

Two weeks ago the HouseLogix team was alerted to an API change affecting the MyQ Control4 driver as well as the MyQ URC Module. We quickly identified the problem and have it resolved. A simple update to the driver or module will correct the issue. This can be done remotely by installing the latest driver.

Alternatively for our Control4 dealers, you could use our free auto update driver to scan and update the project. If you already had the Auto Update driver installed and configured it should automatically fix the issue when you have it scheduled to scan for new updates and restart Director.

Please note: when adding drivers to your Control4 system that are downloaded from our website, it is extremely important that you do not change the file name. This will break the driver and render the auto update process useless.
