Home Automation Basics
Control4 offers the ultimate smart home automation solution by making the electronic components and systems you already use on a daily basis work together, seamlessly. By integrating everything from lighting, music, video, climate control, security—even smartphones and tablets—Control4 creates personalized experiences that enhance your life and work with added comfort, savings, convenience and peace of mind.
With the Control4 MyHome app, you can control anything within the home from your favorite device: Adjust the thermostat from your smartphone, change TV channels from your tablet, shut off lights and arm the security system from your laptop. It’s up to you.
Add a 4Sight subscription, and you can have access to your home—even when you’re not there. As long as you have a data connection, you’re in control of your smart home. We call it “Anywhere Access.”
Home automation and home theater go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you spend a lot of time watching television—whether it’s cable or satellite, movies or sports, comedy or drama—you’ll see a huge impact in the viewing experience once you throw Control4 automation in the mix. Imagine the ability to make one tap to have the shades close, the lights fade, and the receiver kick in at perfect volume or to play high-definition video from virtually any source, on any TV. Control 4 can automate your home theater experience with one-touch control, allows access your home control system through your TV, sends HD video to any room in the house, and allows you to watch video from multiple sources, including media players, hard drives and portable devices. Gain total control of all of your media, without disparate electronic components scattered through the house.
Whether you’re a casual radio listener or a hardcore audiophile, music is the soundtrack of your life. But even the most sophisticated stereo systems can get neglected in favor of other options that are more portable and easier to use. The goal of Control4 is to integrate your entire audio experience so you can listen to whatever you want, no matter where you are in your home. With unprecedented control over your audio, Control4 will change the way you listen to music — forever. With Control 4 you can stream from your favorite service like Spotify, Napster, Rhapsody, Pandora, SiriusXM, podcasts, your entire digital music collection, Internet radio, or your iTunes music library. Send music from virtually any source, including your smartphone or tablet, to any room in the house. Even guests can stream music throughout your home! Control4 media distribution solutions make it easy for everyone in the family to enjoy their favorite music and video anywhere in the house, instantaneously.
We take lighting for granted because it’s so ubiquitous. Most rooms have overhead lights as well as task lighting in specific areas. Almost all houses have exterior lights, some of which are activated by motion controls or light sensors. Just about every room in your house is likely to have multiple lighting options, with several options for dimming. So what’s the best way to manage it all?
Your home may be your castle, but it doesn’t have to be an impregnable fortress in order to be secure. It just needs to be smart. With Control4 and our many companion products, your house can monitor itself and let you know—whether you’re home or away—if something is awry. Rest easier when you can turn off every light in the house, lock the doors, and arm the alarm with one touch of a button—right from your bedside. Or, check in on your system remotely from your favorite device and have the security of checking in on your home while you’re away from home.
We take climate control for granted, expecting a home to be comfortable no matter what season it is or how bad the weather is outside. But heating and cooling your home can be expensive—especially if your HVAC system is cranking at full blast whether you’re home or not. Create “His” and “Her” buttons that dial in the lights to pre-programmed preferences, set just the right temperature, and play just the right music to start every day of on the right foot. One remote controls everything: TV, receiver, music, streaming content devices, digital recorder, DVD player or CD player (if you still have one!)—even the thermostat.
There are two aspects to communication in smart homes. The first is the ability for you and the members of your household to communicate with each other, and with anyone who may come to visit. The second is the ability of the home itself to communicate with you—to give you information you generally need right away. Control4 has the ability to send Push Notifications to your personal mobile devices. Is your window open and it’s about to rain? Has motion been detected in a certain area of your house? Have your kids made it home safely? Control4 can send alerts and keep you informed of everything that is happening in your home.
