OS2.7 Operating system – Normally we would not make much fuss about a software update, but this one brings a range of new features that we think greatly improves the Control4 user experience. We particularly like the new, dare we say sexy, heating control interface which makes heating control and scheduling very easy for everybody – saving money on heating has never been so simple!

We also now have a new 10’’ size screen to complement the current 7” screen size, we expect to have the new design portable 7” touch screen available for installation by the end of June 2015.

All of the new touchscreens are available with a choice of White or Black finish.

The guys at  Sonos have been very busy recently with some interesting new products and services.

First off is the Sonos iPad Controller app, this allows you to control your Sonos system using Apple’s fantastic touch screen tablet. It makes browsing for music from your own collection or from one of the streaming music services an easy and pleasurable experience.

It is available as a free download from the App Store.

The long awaited iPod dock for Sonos will be released at the end of the month. The £99 unit connects wirelessly to a Sonos system allowing the docked iPod or iPhone to be played around the house from any convienent location.

It’s an excellent addition to any Sonos system giving another valuable source of music!

Sonos is also now offering the Spotify music streaming service. This service is already at favourite at Powerplant  because of it’s PC software and iPhone app, the introduction on Sonos is a very welcome addition. You need the premium subscription which is £9.99 per month, this gives you higher quality audio and is advertisment free.
