Australia-based home automation software company Chowmain Software & Apps has announced that it is now developing RTI drivers.

A developer of drivers, modules and applications for the likes of Control4 and URC to date, Chowmain has now added RTI products to its portfolio following a recent partnership with the home automation manufacturer.

Chowmain will be launching four drivers in total after working alongside RTI to receive the resources, training and hardware required to develop the offerings.

Currently in beta testing, the products will be launched in the next month. Beta testers of the line are currently being welcomed (contact Chowmain directly for more information).

The following drivers will be launched for RTI:

• Sensibo WiFi HVAC Controller
A budget, WiFi-based controller designed to manage IR controllable HVAC systems. The controller has an IR input, IR blaster, temperature sensor and humidity sensor built to bring HVAC control into RTI “at an extremely low price point” according to Chowmain.

• P J Link Universal Projector Controller
A universal projector protocol providing control for hundreds of projectors (especially in commercial environments).  Feedback into RTI is designed to ensure that installers can proactively support faults when they happen, or replace lamps when their lamp hours reach a certain point.

• TP-Link HS1XX Smart WiFi Outlet

“Budget” smart WiFi outlets providing on/off control over devices plugged in. Energy feedback can be used to detect when a device goes into standby, or active state to programme automated events (for example, turning on TVs, receivers and other devices – e.g. a PlayStation or Xbox).

• Yeelight Smart Wifi Lighting
“Budget” smart WiFi lights supporting two-way dimming, RGB control, colour temp control and feedback.
