The MAC Address of the main Control4 Controller that hosts the project

HouseLogix has created a direct WiFi Control4 driver for the Radio Thermostat CT30 and Filtrete 3M-50. Now this low cost 802.11 wireless thermostat can be integrated with the highly powerful Control4 automation system. Best of all, no Internet connection is required since our driver talks directly to the thermostat over the network (for best results we recommend configuring the thermostat with a fixed IP address).

Our Control4 driver allows you to add the CT30 WiFi Radio Thermostat to your project and control it like you would any other thermostat. We've mapped out the following features:
• Remote Temperature Support
o Instead of using the local thermostat's sensor, you can set the temperature to ANY Control4 variable in the project. That means you can use another device like a motion sensor, different thermostat, or wireless contact sensor as the basis.
• Set the schedule using the Control4 interface (touch panels, MyHome PC, and TV interface)
• Property windows showing the thermostat model and firmware version.
• Thermostat LED control
• Send numbers to the Price Message Area of the LCD
• Reboot the thermostat from programming or within Composer.
• Adjust heating and cooling temperature set points
o In heat and cool mode only, there is a known bug on the thermostat preventing set point modification in auto mode
• Set system mode to heat, cool, auto or off
• Change fan mode to Auto or On
• Set the Hold mode (*see dealer notes below)
• View the current temperature
• View HVAC state
• View Fan state
• Change the temperature scale from Fahrenheit to Celsius
All standard Control4 thermostat variables that map to the CT30 functionality are available.

Dealer Notes:

• The Wi-Fi module requires power from the furnace "Common" line, or an external transformer in order to run.
• Choosing "Remove Hold" in Control4 will set the CT30 "End Away" status.
• All interaction with the CT30 WiFi Thermostat is done directly over WiFi.
• The driver properties must be entered and set in the order in which they are listed in the Composer Properties window.
