WyreStorm has released a significant new OS 4.0 software update for its intuitive Enado Control Solution line, including the newly launched Enado Mini, in a development that further refines the Enado interface and programming experience for dealers. The latest Enado OS upgrade offers a host of improvements from BYOD QR codes, launching iOS and Android apps from the UI, MyEnado.com PermaLinks for secure remote access, and more.
“As our biggest software release yet, the amazing new features in OS 4.0 make this not only the best Enado update yet, but place Enado as one of the most user friendly control solutions out there,” said James Meredith, WyreStorm’s Enado & NetworkHD Product Manager. “The addition of features such as BYOD QR code support, for example, is such a big deal for dealers. It enables their clients to configure their own control devices, be it a replacement for a lost Galaxy S5 or a brand new iPhone 6S. It’s so easily done that the dealer doesn’t need to go to the site in order to set it up, a customer can do it themselves in seconds.”

Launching apps from the Enado UI allows the dealer to trigger a macro and launch an app at the press of a button, such as to switch on the power amp before going to Sonos or turn all the lights on before launching Lutron.
MyEnado.com PermaLinks now make Enado’s secure remote access even easier to configure and maintain, as Meredith explains. “This greatly eases configuration for the installer and the ability to launch apps like Sonos, Nest and Lutron within Enado dramatically improves the end user’s experience.”
Enado also offers additional dealer-focused upgrades, improvements and fixes guarantee to save even more time and energy. The UI now requires less button presses and pop-ups, improved navigation through Room and Activity buttons and a clipboard to copy-and-paste macros between buttons. There are hundreds of tweaks to further speed up and simplify the programming experience.
Direct links and QR codes for every page in the project can now be viewed for effortless direct linking to pages by simply navigating Project > View Room Links. A new Command Generator in the Device Command Creator has been added for creating hundreds of codes automatically. This is perfect when generating hundreds of lighting commands, for example.
The biggest improvements in this update are for Enado Mini as now integrators can use the Getting Started wizard for both RS-232 matrix control and IP control for the company's new line of matrices and, of course, NetworkHD.
The Enado Mini IP solution offers all the power and functionality of Enado, at a fraction of the size and cost. With a minimalist design requiring only the bare essentials of cable connection for true plug-and-play installation, IR, RS-232 and CC connections can be added via Global Cache devices that integrate seamlessly through the customizable web-based configuration UI. Like the 1U Enado Controller, Enado Mini is multi-platform and is compatible with iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux, PC, and highly scalable to support the control of any AV component over the network.
Step-by-step wizard-based configuration, “What you see is what you get” interface editing and an expansive library of online templates makes short work of set up by the dealer. “BYOD - Bring Your Own Device” support offers an unlimited number of user control devices without licensing fees and a QR code setup that's effortlessly client friendly.
