Driver License:  Site (one required per project)

Version 3.0

 - Added support for OS 2.8 and new list navigator layout and features. Fully backwards compatible.

Version 2.7

 - Added support for OS 2.7. The driver has been adapted to contain both drivers inside itself, and will load the appropriate one for the system it is running on.

This driver provides an InstantControl interface from Control4 to the App.

PLEASE NOTE: It is necessary to add more than 1 driver to the project to accommodate multiple individuals in the household.

There are 2 recommended approaches:

1) Add 1 driver for each device in the household. This will provide a separate user interface experience on each device. This approach is ideal for devices that are commonly shared between users.

2) Add 1 driver for each individual in the household. This will provide the same user interface experience on any of that user's devices. Ex: Sally has her phone and tablet connect to the same driver (same port). After navigating to her music library on her phone, she may then switch to her tablet and pickup in the exact same spot where she left off. This feature can be very powerful for users that do not share their devices.

Note: This driver is intended to be used on a local password protected and encrypted network only.

Add the driver to the project, enter the license key, and press set.
Verify that the License Status field acknowledges a successful activation.

Take note of the driver's port property value. This information will be required to connect the mobile app to the driver.

Connect the mobile device to the wireless network on which the controller resides.

Upon starting the mobile app, you will be prompted to input the Controller IP and Port.

Press connect, and you should be presented with the InstantControl interface.

Volume Increment:
