-Tired of using six remotes just to turn the TV on? Imagine how easy it could be if you could pick up one remote, press a button, and have all the right equipment turn on, go to the right input, and set your lighting to the perfect level. Think how much time and frustration you could save!
-Are you overwhelmed and frustrated with your music stored in five different locations and each having a different interface with a different login on each one? With Control4 you can have full control of ALL your music from a simple touchscreen or button remote. Simple, one button operation to play your favorite music in the room you want, when you want, and without the frustration.
-A Control4 system saves you money, time, and frustration by combining all your thermostats, fireplaces, and indoor/outdoor temp sensors into one simple, easy to use interface. This saves you valuable time by not needing to walk around your whole house every day adjusting settings, plus it saves you money because all your devices talk to each other, allowing a single button to turn multiple devices on or off at once.
-Tired of your kids leaving the lights on upstairs? Or maybe coming home from vacation to realize that you forgot to turn the lights off while rushing out the door? Or maybe you just don’t like all the light switches on every wall throughout your home. A Control4 lighting system can combine all these light switches into a single keypad, making it fast and easy to turn multiple lights on or off at the same time. It can also make it easy to wake your home up in the morning or putting it to bed at night by triggering multiple light switches with a single button press.
-When integrating a security system into Control4 it adds the ultimate level of integration. This allows your security system to talk with the other systems in the home, making entry and exit to your home fast and easy. With security integration your home automatically goes into ‘Away’ mode when you arm the system, turning off lights, adjusting the thermostat, closing shades, and turning off all your audio/video devices. This saves you valuable time when running out the door to that important appointment or to get the kids to school. And when you return a simple disarm of your system can turn on lights, heating/cooling, and even turn on your favorite music.
Using your phone, iPad, or Android Tablet you can access your home and any of its systems, giving you the peace of mind that everything is okay. Imagine how comforting it would be if your home could notify you if there was a water leak, power outage, or an uninvited guest? Or maybe you are expecting someone at the home but don’t want to leave a key? Just use the mobile app to remotely open a garage door, unlock your front door, or disarm your security. All from the convenience of your mobile device!
