What is Control4?

What is Control4?If you’re new to the concept of home automation, you’ll certainly discover  Control4 during your research and the capabilities it’s delivered to homeowners for over the past 15 years. Since its inception, Control4 has become one of the biggest names in smart home technology and continues to deliver cutting-edge, state-of-the-art enhancements for the home. Using connected smart home products, Control4 becomes the hub for your home tech systems.

Control4 partners with dealers who are expertly trained in their products so you’re able to maximize the functionality of their systems. The brand promises: It’s a product you truly must see – “C4 yourself” – and keeps you connected to the things that are most important.

To put it simply, Control4 makes the connected devices in your home work together and provides an easy-to-use networking system. A Control4 automation system is custom built to fit homeowners’ lifestyles and needs. Whether you want to automate a single room or a whole home custom design, you have the option with Control4.

Integrates Your Whole Smart Home

Control4 entered the smart home market many years ago and integrates with your PC, Mac computers, iPads, Android and Kindle tablets as well as iPhones and Android smartphones. With new electronics hitting the market daily, Control4 allows for seamless integration throughout your home or business. If you have a need for it, Control4 likely has a solution for it. From smart lighting, shading, security, home theater essentials, climate control and multi-room audio, Control4 commands it all.

For example, the Control4 home security integration allows homeowners to easily check who is at the door remotely. So, next time you’re cooking, and someone is at your door, you can see who it is without leaving the kitchen by checking the app and let them in without disturbing your food prep.

Or use the climate control integration to automatically control the home’s heating and cooling schedule so it’s nice and cool when you come home from work but doesn’t waste electricity while you’re away. Automated smart shading opens and closes the shades to physically block outdoor temperatures from penetrating your home and cut down on cooling and heating expenses. 

Let the app adapt to your schedule. Lights in pre-selected rooms automatically turn on when you’re home and turn off when you’re not home. Smart home lighting is powered by smart bulbs, which are LED and connected to the Internet. These bulbs receive signals from your smart home hub that commands them to turn on and off as necessary.

The Control4 App

The Control4 app is easy to use, customizable and can control all smart devices in the home. The app is made for iOS or Android mobile devices, so homeowners can easily command any device in their home with a simple click. Or, if you prefer you can use one of Control4’s variety of touchscreen universal remotes that are intuitive and simple to use. You can automate your system preferences to go off without a hitch or manually adjust settings on your phone, it’s up to you. Control4’s intuitive interfaces control the entire home, from audio and video equipment to lights, music, temperature, shades and more. The days of managing multiples remotes are over! Control4 is even voice-activated so you can choose to ditch the remote if desired.

Smart Tech that’s Customized for Your Needs

One of the biggest benefits of utilizing Control4 in your home is the personalization that comes with it. Did you know that Control4 technology integrates with more than 35,000 connected devices? Products from Sonos, Nest and Apple products can all be controlled within this easy-to-use app.

It’s worth noting that installing Control4 is not a DIY-project. Just like other home project needs, such as heating, cooling and plumbing, you’ll need to partner with a professional. Your certified Control4 dealer will customize the product around your needs; it is not an “out of the box” solution. The more smart devices that are in your home, the more complex integrating them can become. In order to obtain a seamless smart home system, a Control4 dealer will design its functionality based upon your needs.
