The Control4 home control system, from Snap One, now supports full integration with the popular Pandora music streaming service, offering customers complete access to their Premium, Plus, and Free accounts through the Control4 interface.
Reimagined after nearly a decade of partnership, the Pandora integration for Control4 systems now provides users with a truly premium music streaming experience, especially in comparison to other services that offer limited control system integration capabilities.
“One of the benefits of being a Control4 user is that Snap One is constantly developing new streaming service integrations and capabilities that add value to existing systems,” said Andy Spalla, senior product manager, streaming audio, at Snap One. “Snap One partners now have a powerful reason to reconnect with existing clients, as well as a new selling point for future projects, with this exciting new experience.”
By integrating a fully-functional Pandora interface into the Control4 app, Snap One is enabling integrators to offer their clients an entirely new experience with more access to their music, greater control and a simpler UI. Clients will recognize Pandora as a premier and popular platform, simplifying the sales process and delivering greater value to new and existing users.
Pandora, along with Control4’s many audio integrations, is supported by Ryff, the native streaming audio platform within the Control4 ecosystem. The Ryff audio platform provides the highest audio quality and network-based audio synchronization to prevent echoes and lag across multiple simultaneous zones, including those connected wirelessly. Control4 integrators and end-users have enjoyed this technology for more than 17 years, and after nearly two decades of development, innovation, and investment, SnapOne has branded it Ryff.
The integration was developed in response to user and Partner requests, with specific focus on easier navigation and the ability to search and browse Pandora’s full library of on-demand content. Users can now access all of their favorite Stations and playlists as well as select individual tracks or albums, as their level of Pandora subscription allows.
The new integration is available immediately to all Control4 Partners and end users.
