Linux-based home automation system adds tablet controller, Android app

Control4 announced a seven-inch tablet, meant for portable control of its Linux-based Control4 home automation, surveillance, and music-server system. In addition to the Control4 7″ Portable Touch Screen, the company also announced a “Control4 MyHome — Android” app.

We last checked in on Control4’s Linux-based Control4 Home Automation system in 2009, when the company announced version 2.0 of its Control4 software and debuted a similar Control4 Energy Management System (EMS) 100 system aimed at smart-grid applications. The flagship Control4 Home Automation system offers music-server features, as well as home automation and security functions such as surveillance camera control and scheduled lighting.
