Control4’s 2.0.1 release brings support for InfinityEdge touchscreens, refreshed controllers & remote

In addition to the new hardware support, with just about every release there are bug fixes. If you’re affected by something below, ask your dealer if the upgrade is what is needed to correct the problem. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade or purchase – the new OS and faster controllers are a good time to jump in. We also have a FAQ about the license for 2.0 after the read link.

  • Modified Composer HE so that it does not depend on the digital certificate installed by Composer Pro for proper operation. Composer HE will now work properly when installed on a computer which doesn’t have Composer Pro installed.

Do I need a new software license for OS 2.0.1?
OS 2.0.1 requires the same OS 2.0 software license as the OS 2.0 release. Customers being upgraded from OS 2.0 to OS 2.0.1 do not need a new license. All customers upgrading from prior versions do need an OS 2.0 Software License.

Do all systems need a software license to upgrade to OS 2.0.1?
Yes.  All existing systems need an OS 2.0 software license to upgrade. Exceptions: Control4® Controllers (HC-200, HC-300, HC-500, or HC-1000) that were purchased during the free upgrade window (December 09 – June 2010) and are functioning as the Primary Controller will upgrade to OS 2.0 without requiring a license.

What is the free upgrade window and how does it work?
On December 23, 2009, in conjunction with the announcement of new lighting products based on ZigBee® Pro, Control4 announced that Controllers purchased on or after that date would be eligible for a free upgrade to OS 2.0. The Controller must be the Primary Controller (running Director) when the upgrade is performed in order to receive the free upgrade. 

Do new systems purchased by customers need an OS 2.0 Software License?
No. All new systems (shipped after 2.0’s release) have the ability and license to run OS 2.0. The OS 2.0 Software License is only required to upgrade existing systems to OS 2.0.
