Dish connects Hopper platform to Control4 home automation system.
September 30, 2013
DENVER -- At the 2013 CEDIA Expo, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) today announced plans to integrate Control4 (NASDAQ: CTRL) home automation technology with its award-winning Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR system. As a result, the Hopper platform will soon be controlled by the popular Control4 system commonly found both in high-end and mainstream home automation installations. The move follows DISH’s July announcement that it will share Application Programming Interface (API) programming instructions for the Hopper with selected companies. DISH will implement Control4’s Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP), making it even easier for automation installers to fully integrate the capabilities of the DISH Hopper receiver and service. DISH is exhibiting Control4 and other home automation solutions in booth 2340 of the CEDIA Expo this week at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
DISH intends to keep leading the industry in offering more and better consumer choice and control. The integration will start with showcasing full Hopper remote control tuning capability. As the integrators become more familiar with the Hopper’s API, their apps and devices will be able to access the full range of Hopper features – not just channel changing and the program guide – such as the capability to manage DVR recordings, browse the entire Video-On-Demand catalog, and the ability to purchase Pay-Per-View content.
