Control 4 & Napster

On Monday, February 5, 2018, Napster will stop working on Control4 systems unless the following have occurred:

  1. The system is running OS 2.9.1 or later
  2. The latest Napster driver (v79) has been installed
  3. The Napster patch has been applied

New Napster driver:

Since Control4 introduced Rhapsody (now Napster) in 2008, Rhapsody/Napster has continued to evolve their Application Programming Interface (API) to improve service stability, introduce new features, and deliver new security capabilities for their streaming music service. Over the years, Control4 has updated its Rhapsody/Napster drivers to utilize new elements of the API, but on February 5, 2018, Napster will deprecate some legacy elements in the API that will cause Napster to stop working on Control4 systems that utilize the legacy Napster driver and the Rhapserver process.

Control4 has now released an updated version of the Napster driver (v79) that no longer requires the legacy Napster API or the Rhapserver process, but the new driver requires OS 2.9.1 (or later) and an additional software patch. Over the next two months, please update customer systems to ensure that Napster continues to work for them.

We have been designing, installing and monitoring security systems for 27 years.  We have and appreciate a large group of loyal clients.

One of the most asked questions has an answer that gives folks pause. It goes something like this:

Client: My security system false alarmed last night. The keypad says Zone Fault Motion. What do I do?

Our first response is right about 90% of the time…..Check for spiders in and around the motion detector.

Well our alarm in the showroom went off in the middle of the night this week….Here is what we found!!

Yikes!! But does prove the point.

YIKES!! To the motion detector that spider looks the size of GODZILLA!!!
