Janus Technology, the leading software consultancy in technology integration with a focus on IoT & Smart Homes, has partnered with Rako Controls, a manufacturer of smart lighting control, to streamline Control4 lighting control integration. 

Due to the all-new Janus Technology Control4 driver, the recent partnership is anticipated to turn the integration of Rako lighting control into a Control4 system easier, quicker, and more streamlined. This is described as a huge step forward in driver technology.

Rako’s HUB is a feature-rich interface that streamlines Rako system installation, integration, and remote management. It’s a small counter-top unit with time-based functionality, conditional logic, and complex system capabilities that can be triggered by wired or wireless commands.

We are delighted to announce this new Control4 driver for Rako lighting control,” said Richard Caton, Managing Director of Janus Technology. “Our two companies have a passion for making the lives of integrators easier and with these new solutions, we will be able to do just that. The new driver makes integration between Rako and Control4 much smoother and will save time and cost for integrators”, adds Caton

With over 10 years of inter-cooperation and comprehensive knowledge of the Rako product line, Janus Technology has developed the Control4 driver to work particularly with the new Rako HUB. The driver extracts all room, channel, and circuit information from the Rako HUB and adds all required proxy drivers automatically, while immensely speeding up the commissioning procedure for the installation. It makes use of the new HUB API for more dependable communication and feedback.

The driver suite also contains RGB and RGBW drivers, which are fully compatible with Janus Technology’s Colour Wheel, a web view driver that enables users to quickly and simply adjust the colour of numerous lighting channels in a Rako system. Now, it works with both the Control4 mobile app and the touchscreen. 

Paul Wafer, Director, Rako Controls added: “When integrating third-party systems, there is always a separate driver needed. Many of these drivers have not been updated and maintained over the years so they require manual programming by the integrator. This can be time-consuming and complex, which is the last thing you need when you are working on-site”.“The new Control4 driver that Janus Technology has developed offers seamless integration with the Rako HUB interface. We have tested it internally and are impressed with the results. We’re sure it will prove a huge advantage for Control4 dealers who want to implement Rako lighting control in their systems”, continued Wafer.
