Home Theater with Multi-Room Music and Lighting

Below is a schematic picture of a Control4 home control system with the ability to control all the A/V devices in the home theater room plus stream digital audio to 2 other rooms in the house from it's USB-attached storage. This system also controls lighting in each room with a wireless dimmer. Control4 products connect via a home network using standard Ethernet or 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet connections. Control signals from the RF system remote use Zigbee (802.15.4) mesh networking for reliable command transmission between devices. This handheld remote allows you to easily navigate the on screen interface to watch a DVD, select a favorite TV channel, or launch your favorite music playlist, and will replace the 4 or more remotes you may now be using to control your entertainment complex.

The above system includes a Home Controller HC-300 with System Remote Control SR150, one Ethernet Speaker Point with Remote Control, one Wifi Speaker Point, and a Wireless Mini Touch Screen plus a Wireless Dimmer in each room. The Speaker Points receive the digital audio transmission from the HC-300 and convert to stereo outputs for speakers located in the two other rooms. The second Remote Control and the Mini Touch Screen provide a user interface to the system in those rooms providing complete control over the audio selection of each room. Note two different music selections can be played in each room while a DVD is being simultaneously viewed in the theater room.
