From now (July 23, 2010) til August 31, 2010, Control4 is calling out to the flash-development community to participate in a Developer’s Challenge for $10,000 in cash and prizes.

The company recently launched a new platform for Flash developers in the form of the 4Store Application Marketplace, a platform that takes the typical entertainment, informational, and social networking app concept far beyond what we’ve seen thus far in the smart phone environment. Developers can tap into the energy management, home control, and monitoring capabilities of the Control4 system in new and interesting ways, and the company is hoping to encourage creative development with the Control4’s Developer’s Challenge.

The Challenge

All 4Store applications are based on Adobe Flash ActionScript 2.0, so creating apps should be a breeze to those developers already familiar with the platform. And for those developers not familiar with Control4, access to basic tech training will be made available upon registration at the web portal site.

Prizes include:

  • $5,000 awarded to the developer with the most popular 4Store app based on the number of downloads their app receives from the date of submission to November 30, 2010.
  • $5,000 in Control4 Gear to the developer with the most 4Store apps submitted between now and August 31, 2010.
  • 4Store Developer of the Year will be presented to the developer during a CEDIA Expo, scheduled to be held on September 23, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, where the selected developer will be invited to demonstrate their apps in the Control4 booth throughout the show, and will be the guest of honor at the Control4 Dealer Party during the event.

To enter the contest, developers must register at the 4Store website and start submitting apps for approval to Control4 by August 31, 2010 at
