Smart-e - v 7.0.1

Extra Vegetables' Control4 IP interface and driver for the Smart-e range of AV Matrix switches provides fast and reliable control of these innovative switches from a Control4 system. The supplied interface unit connects directly to the front of the Smart-e switch with the supplied cable.

As an IP ethernet driver this means there are not adaptors to hang off the back of one of the Control4 controllers serial ports.  The package includes the driver, interface unit and power supply.

Supported Control4 operating systems

Compatible with Control4 OS 2.x and above ONLY

Control4 Processor Requirements

HC250 can be used on smaller systems.  Please check Control4's recommended processor requirements for your specific project.


No IR or Serial Routing
Control4 does not have a concept of an IR or Serial matrix.  The Smart-e switch is capable of routing IR signals.  If you wish to send IR along the same signal as the video please ask Smart-e to provide you with a switch with independent IR inputs for each output.

  • Reliable IP Ethernet control of the Smart-e switch.
    Our interface connects to the data network in the property for communication to the Control4 system. It then connects directly to the RJ45 connection on the front of the Smart-e switch.  There are no incompatibility problems or serial connection voltage mismatches.  Control of the Smart-e switch is rock solid.
  • Capable of switching audio and video banks independently.
    The driver fully supports the Smart-e's ability to switch the audio and video separately.  This provides the dealer with increased flexibility in the system design.  It also means that if you customer is watching a central satellite receiver and then presses the 'Control4' button on the remote they can navigate the Control4 system whilst still listening to the audio from the satellite receiver.
  • Authorized by Smart-e.
    Smart-e fully supported the development of this interface - thanks!  However all support is down to us.
  • Compatible with OS 1.7, 1.8 and 2.x.
    All 'Driverworks' versions of Control4 are supported.  There are no differences in the feature sets between versions.




This driver is an independent commercial release by Extra Vegetables Ltd.  It is not authorized or supported either by Control4.  Smart-e have fully supported its development but all support is provided by Extra Vegetables through its authorized dealer network.
