Why Trust a Control4 Integrator With Your Smart Home Upgrade?
Georgia Homeowners Love the Simplicity and Scalability of Control4
So you’ve decided to upgrade your lifestyle with smart home automation. Whether you’re planning a system as part of a new-construction project, or you want to retrofit your current home with the latest technology, there’s just one answer: Control4. There are plenty of reasons why you should collaborate with a Platinum-level Control4 integrator when making custom electronic updates to your Georgia home. In this blog, we’ll take you through some of the best ones. Read on to learn more.
Connect Your Smart Devices
For some, they think a smart thermostat here and a smart refrigerator there means they’re living in a connected home. But really, it just means you have a few nifty gadgets that speak to your smartphone. If you want to live the connected lifestyle, you need technology that talks to each device and gets them to work together. That technology is Control4.
The reason Control4 is a quickly-growing leader in the smart home market is that it helps connect your existing technology into a single, comprehensive system. If you already have a Nest Thermostat and a Sonos sound system, Control4 integrates them both fluidly under a single interface so that they can work in tandem. For instance, you can have a single button labeled “Chill Time” that lowers your AC and streams a low-key playlist through your multi-room audio system.
Control4 is Scalable
As we’ve already said, many homeowners currently have smart devices in their homes, and Control4 helps tie them together to work as one. That leads us to one of the other best reasons to integrate it: the system is entirely scalable.
If you know automation is the way to go, but you don’t want to jump head first into a total home solution, you’ll find big benefits even if you only integrate a single room, like your home theater. One-room solutions like the EA-1 controller offer an affordable jumping-on point for connecting your entertainment system and more, so a single touch lets you start a movie, dim the lights, lower the shades, raise the volume and adjust the temperature.
The larger-scale EA-5 controller is the perfect device for whole home systems, granting command over the electronics in every room.
An Intuitive Interface
If you’ve been following our blog, you know that one of the most important aspects of any smart home is how you control it. Many love the convenience of using the smartphone they have in their pocket. Others prefer a dedicated device that doubles as a TV display when not in use. The fact is, Control4’s OS 2.8 interface is the same across any device you choose to use – including wearable technology.
The latest operating system features native streaming from online high-resolution music services like Tidal and Deezer, as well as enhanced entertainment features. It now pulls information about the movies and music you’re enjoying to give you a fuller experience.
They’ve also adapted the Control4 app for use on wearables, like the Apple Watch. As the popularity of wearable technology continues to grow, Control4 remains on the cutting edge.
