Control4 is the Conductor of Your Smart Home Orchestra

If you are looking at smart home technology options around Atlanta, GA, you may run into a fair amount of hyperbole. There are smart devices that all but promise to change your life, thermostats that know when you’re home and when you’re not, and lights that can turn into a rainbow of colors. All of those devices may do wonderful, innovative things, but do any of those things by themselves make your life better? 

A smart home may have many smart devices. You have probably heard of many of them; smart thermostats, smart lighting, smart security cameras, smart locks, and many others. You may even have one or two of them, like a Nest thermostat. Beyond having remote control of a device via an app, the way these devices start making your life easier is when they all start working together to fit the way you live—demanding less of your attention, automating routine functions, and making time available for more important things. 

That’s where Control4 smart home automation comes in. It orchestrates all your smart devices into a cohesive, manageable system that works for you.

Peace of Mind

Keeping your home safe and secure is always a prime concern. There are many small ways that a Control4 system makes that happen. Every Control4 Touch Screen has a camera and audio capability.  With a Control4 Door Station, you can remotely see and talk to anyone at your front door. 

With multiple security cameras, you can view each feed on a variety of screens; through a touchscreen, your phone or tablet, or on a TV.  When you’re away from home, you can get an alert if a camera detects a person, and you can view that activity and even interact with the person at the front door. If it’s someone with a delivery, you’ll be able to go one step further and let them in to drop off the package and lock back up when they leave.

Control4 has pioneered high-end, innovative lifestyle automation solutions, making them a leader in smart home technology today. For an example of their smart home options, just imagine this: After a busy day of work, shuttling kids to after-school activities, and a quick trip to the grocery store, you pull into the garage. A sensor in the garage knows you’re home. A preprogrammed “welcome home” scene illuminates the garage and the hallway to the kitchen, then turns on the overhead lights in the kitchen and family room. The alarm has been disarmed. You like a little soft background music to unwind after a long day, which automatically starts when you walk in the door.

After putting away the groceries in the refrigerator, you tell the kids to start their homework at their desks in the upstairs nook. You have a Control4 touchscreen controller in the kitchen and a minimalistic camera upstairs, allowing you to keep an eye on the kids to ensure they’re really doing homework and not playing video games. All you have to do is bring the video up on the touchscreen.

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.
