How Well Do Your Smart Home Devices Play Together?

Control4 Orchestrates Smart Home Control

How Well Do Your Smart Home Devices Play Together?

Smart devices are everywhere. Smart locks, smart doorbells, smart cameras, smart lights, smart thermostats – the list goes on. Chances are you have one or more of them.  Some of these devices work well together.  For example, if you have an Amazon Echo speaker and use Alexa voice control, some lights will work with it – but not all.  Similarly, you may find a device or two that works with Apple Homekit, but they are limited.  Some smart cameras work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home, but some only work with one of them.

One of the frustrations with smart home devices and automation is getting everything to work well together.  While it’s a benefit to have a smartphone app and perhaps voice control over a function like smart lights, you ultimately will want a system that can tie them all together and do more sophisticated things.

What do we mean by sophisticated?  Think about linking together smart lights, a smart thermostat, and motorized shades for more intelligent control over the interior environment, increasing comfort and saving on energy too.  Or perhaps setting a scene for entertaining that manages the lights, audio, and interior temperature to just the right settings for your guests. 

A system like Control4 can help you accomplish just that. And it also works with many of the most popular consumer smart home devices too.  Read on to find out how Control4 smart home automation can orchestrate all of your smart devices in Frisco.
