Version 5.2 is released
#1
Oct 15, 2017 - CQC Version 5.2 Released

Charmed Quark Systems, Ltd. is proud to announce the release of version 5.2 of their CQC automation platform. With the enormous 5.0 release, we massively revamped our administrative UI. In 5.1 we addressed more voice control options and web cameras. For this release our major focus has been on non-Windows touch screen support, bringing CQC touch screen interfaces to more platforms, much more cleanly.  

The more significant changes in this version are:

WebRIVA. Over the last number of years, CQC touch screen support on non-Windows clients was provided by a couple third party products for Android and iOS, which were based on our RIVA system (Remote Interface Viewer Architecture.) However, support for those product had waned, and improvements were difficult to implement, so we wanted to bring that functionality in-house. After much debate we decided to implement a browser based RIVA client.

WebRIVA is the result, and it is a significant improvement in our non-Windows client support. Since it is all in-house now we were able to make significant improvements in the features and performance of the RIVA system, and of course we can now support any client with a sufficiently modern browser, not just Android and iOS. So this is a huge step forward for us.

More Help. In 5.0 we completely reworked the help system, into a much nicer HTML format that ships with CQC. In 5.1 that work continued, bringing over the device support documentation. For 5.2 we have again significantly improved the HTML help, with much better layering of information detail to make it easier for those new to CQC to work their way into the product.

There are now three main levels: Big Picture, More Details, and Reference. The More Details section contains the old Big Picture content largely, and a new Big Picture section was created which is a much bigger big picture, at a significantly higher level, with plenty of links to more information.

Device Support. We've added support for the Monoprice Blackbird 4x4 matrix switcher, we updated the Nest driver to support the new Eco modes and home/away status for structures, and we added support for the Lutron Caseta system.


Try It

You can download the new version via the home page of the web site, and try it out unencumbered for 40 days. So you can know for sure whether it meets your needs before you commit.

Existing customers covered under the maintenance system can upgrade at their convenience.
