A new driver has been developed by Lithe Audio to give Control4 users complete control over their Lithe Audio multiroom Wi-Fi ceiling speakers.

The new Control4 driver supports SDDP, allowing homeowners to control the volume, track skipping and play. It also features ‘now playing’ meta data feedback, a ‘now playing’ progress bar, automatic room on/off for streaming, and auxiliary input switching. 

The Lithe Audio in-ceiling speakers include built-in 60W RMS amplifiers and Wi-Fi, meaning the speakers are completely wireless. Having no wires makes the speakers easy to install by connecting power from the lighting or power circuit and set up via AirPlay. 

The speakers work together to stream high quality audio from any Wi-Fi-enabled audio service to a single speaker, or a selection of up to 30 speakers at once for a full multiroom audio experience. 

“This is a significant investment for us and an exciting development for Control4 installers everywhere,” said Amit Ravat, co-founder of Lithe Audio. 

“We’ve worked closely with our software developers to create a simple but effective driver which will enable installers to utilise the Lithe Audio Wi-Fi ceiling speaker system in projects without running speaker cables or additional infrastructure.”
