Chowmain’s Advanced Announcements Driver for Control4

Chowmain’s Advanced Announcements Driver
The Control4 Home Automation system has the ability to play audio announcements through the audio outputs on its controllers and speaker points. These announcements can play back any file encoded in a wav format. Traditionally these announcements have been used for doorbells and pre-recorded messages.

Chowmain’s Advanced Announcements driver expands the announcement agent by providing integration with web based text to speech engines. This gives you futuristic dynamically generated voice notifications over your Control4 system without any additional hardware.

Driver features:
  • Dynamic text to speech generation
  • Ability to speak the date & time
  • Ability to inject variables
  • Currently supports 3 text to speech engines with multiple languages, voices, speed and pitch (SpeechUtil.com, VoiceRSS.org, iSpeech.org)
  • Ability to record your voice via a web browser for playback through Control4.
