Two major players in the home theater and smart home market are joining forces to streamline integration among products, while increasing options for builders and integrators.
Control4 and Denon have been in the forefront of home theater – audio and smart home control for years and now they have entered a partnership to open Denon’s smart product line to Control4’s dealers, meaning builders can get all their automation and entertainment tech in one spot.
According to the press release, Denon has been involved in Control4’s Driver Certification Program, which aims to solve installation issues by simplifying integrations between devices.
Control 4 and Denon enter partnership to streamline integration.
Denon is not the only entertainment company in partnership with a major automation platform. Leviton and Niles both integrate easily with major automation platforms like Control4 and Elan in price ranges lower than Denon’s product line.
This new partnership between Denon and Control4 could possibly be a signal that the AV and smart home control market is finally trying to make interoperability much better for both the integrator and the end user.
Digital Living’s take is that we may see more high profile AV and control companies enter into similar agreements…although making it all work, every time, is the key for the integrator and ultimately the customer.c
