Essentially Control4 is the ‘brains’ of your smart system. It tells all kinds of compatible devices what to do and when to do it. Control4 is a way of consolidating the plethora of remote controls (TV’s, Amplifiers, BluRay players, SKY boxes etc.) we all accumulate into just one, simple to use remote control. However it comes in to its own in a ‘smart home’. For example, on selecting ‘Watch BluRay’ from your Control4 remote control or touch panel, the intelligent processor will instruct your projector and screen to come down from the ceiling and switch on, your surround sound system to activate to ‘movie mode’, lights to gently dim, blinds or curtains to close and set the climate to a pre-set level. All this happens in a matter of seconds leaving you to enjoy the film.
The sleek looking touch panels, clever remote controls and on TV displays make using Control4 and your system a pleasure. The interface is slick – making the most of your system is made easy with clear icons and universal displays on all interfaces – even the apps for tablets, iPad’s and iPhone’s use the same layout. Control4 takes all the hard work out of operating what would otherwise be a complicated system. Home control is much more than a universal remote, or smart lighting. Home control is technology that links and controls the electronics and systems in your home – through one easy-to-use interface. Control4 products make intelligent home automation and control possible and affordable for every home. Control4 aims to improve people's lives by reducing the complexity of personal (or in-home) technology with easy-to-use, intelligent and affordable automation solutions.
A variety of intuitive Control4 interfaces let you control your lights, temperature, movies, music and much more. You may prefer an elegant in-wall touch screen for the kitchen and an easy-to-use remote for the family room. You should be able to interact with your home in various ways. It may be as simple as a handheld remote for your video experience, a touchscreen to browse and play your music collection, a keypad that manages lighting, music, shades and more, or your smartphone, tablet—or even the watch on your wrist—while you’re in the backyard or away from your home.
