PHOENIX, ARIZONA — Friday, December 30, 2016 — BlackWire is pleased to introduce the Ring Events Driver for Control4 home automation systems. With this driver integrators will be able to use push button and motion events from the Ring Doorbell or Ring Pro Doorbell and integrate them into their Control4 projects. The direct integration with Ring allows the driver to be much faster than other solutions that rely on 3rd party services like IFTTT and more reliable than doorbell sensing hardware that can be overly sensitive to power fluctuations and other external conditions.

Using these events dealers can program additional actions and events to take place through the Control4 system. For example if the Ring Doorbell senses motion the Control4 system could activate a lighting scene or begin playing a playlist to emulate someone is in the house. The doorbell press event can be used to play a custom ringtone through the home audio system or activate outdoor lighting to provide a greater level of security.

The driver is now available to dealers on BlackWire’s online store and can be bundled for free with any Ring Doorbell purchased from BlackWire. [Link:]


- Ability to use button pressed events as triggers for custom programming in Control4
- Ability to use motion detection events as triggers for custom programming in Control4
- Fast notification time (about the same as the Ring app)
- Simple to install and easy to program


Does this driver support video?

-No, it does not. Just events like motion detecting and button pushes.

Does this driver support video?

-Nope. Not yet but we are working closely with Ring to make this happen in the future. This driver will give you integration options with the product that didn't exist yesterday which is pretty great.

What are some good examples of how this driver could be used?

-When the button event is detected, you can play a custom MP3 chime through the home's speakers. You also have the ability to turn on a light when motion is detected at your front door.

Will Ring Stick Up Cameras work with this driver?

-We've been working on the doorbell, but we don't see any reason these won't be supported in the near future.

Sold! How do I buy this awesome driver?!? 🤑
