3 Reasons to Choose Control4 as Your Home Automation System
Why This System Fits Your Highland Park Home
With everything that’s going on in the world today, many of us are now confined to our homes. We understand that anxieties are running high in light of these less-than-ideal circumstances. Though we at Crown Audio Video can’t solve the crisis, we can help make your time at home more enjoyable with home automation, and we can’t imagine a more suitable system than Control4. Read on to learn why we recommend it.
Commitment to Innovation
Just within the last couple of years, Control4 released more than 1,000 new features with their Smart Home OS 3 and soon after, the Neeo remote, to manage the operating system. Other changes include “When >>Then” personalization features, its “Intercom Anywhere” system and more. Control4 proves that it’s listening to real users and following the industry’s pulse by constantly providing us with well-engineered technology that solves real smart home user needs.
New to home automation? Though Control4 handles many commands and can manage countless devices, the end user sees only a streamlined system that makes whole-home operation look easy. Control4’s Smart Home OS 3 augmented the existing operating system with smartphone-like controls. This means that you can swipe through whole rooms in your house to see security footage, and then focus in on any detail from lighting to HVAC to music in that room. You can save commonly used spaces, functions or devices to your favorites for easier access later.
Superior Safety and Entertainment Features
Feeling entertained and safe are priorities during this uncertain time. Clients enjoy that they can see their Control4 interface on any TV screen, which lets them operate the new OS 3 functions without leaving the couch. If someone arrives with your take-out order, you can monitor them from your video doorbell, speak to them briefly via video call, and tap one button to let them inside using your smart lock system.
Are you staying entertained? Keep your family happy and relaxed by streaming movies and music. With Control4, you can set up all of your streaming apps -- from Netflix to Deezer -- to your home screen. Also, remember that extending your AV outdoors with devices like weatherproof speakers and TVs will allow you some welcome breathing room after spending so much time indoors.
We also recommend upgrading your network now to ensure that the streaming, working from home and entertaining family don’t compete for bandwidth and cause frustrating lags.
We’re impressed by Control4’s commitment to improving third-party integrations: In fact, Control4 solutions work with nearly 14,000 third-party consumer devices—and that number keeps expanding. Connected audio, video, security, HVAC and lighting functions are more accessible to integrate and enjoy -- keeping both the clients and the integrators stress-free and satisfied through every phase of developments.
Control4 even serves lesser-known functions that you’ll enjoy this summer, like pool or hot tub temperature control and support for portable music devices like the Sonos Move. Also, don’t forget about voice control through connected devices like Amazon Alexa: Hands-free control keeps spaces even more hygienic.
