Powersoft has announced that Mezzo, its unique half-size install amplifier platform, is now compatible with Control4 smart home systems. The release of a Control4 plug-in makes it easy for SIs to integrate Mezzo with one of the most popular systems for home automation, and signals a renewed focus on the residential market for Powersoft. The Control4 platform is interoperable with more than 13,500 third-party products – including lighting, audio, video, climate control, intercom and security devices – and used by homeowners and businesses in more than 100 countries.

“We are delighted that the residential integration community will now be able to take full advantage of the Mezzo platform, which, with its compact half-rack form factor and availability in both two-channel and four-channel configurations, is the ideal solution for home, residential and commercial applications where flexibility is a must,” says Powersoft project and product manager Antonio Feo.

With the plug-in installed, a Control4 controller is able to leverage Mezzo’s dynamic routing capabilities to access standby control (power on/off), gain and mute control (for all four channels of the user EQ section), input matrix control (excluding Dante/AES67), analogue sources, and amplifier status for all connected Mezzo devices.

Mezzo’s built-in routing matrix supports up to four zones of audio, making it perfect for multiroom residential AV systems, where it can eliminate the need for expensive hardware matrices. “By offering a more versatile and less expensive solution for networked audio, we will deliver savings for both system integrator and end users,” explains Feo.
