What is home automation?
Smart Home Automation by Control4 has the mastermind solution, making it possible for virtually any appliance or device in your home to intelligently communicate with another—from locks to lights, doors to drapes—and you have the ability to control them, no matter where you are.
Create the perfect movie ambiance in one touch. Tell your thermostat what to do from Thailand. Manage music in multiple rooms. Get a text when your teenager comes home. Control4 gives you flexible solutions to design the home automation system of your dreams on a very real budget.
Life’s better when everything works together. This is your home with a brain. A genius idea, indeed.
Maybe you’d like to make the perfect ambiance possible in every room. Or perhaps you’re just looking for a few easy ways to save energy. No matter what your intention, intelligent lighting with Control4 Smart Homes is always a bright idea. Here are just a few brilliant examples:
- Have the lights in the house turn on automatically to welcome you home.
- Program the lights to go on at sunset and off at daybreak, or set them to replicate your normal usage pattern when you’re out of town so it looks like you’re home even when you’re not.
- Experience hands-free illumination when entering a dark hallway; motion sensors can make sure you never have to fumble around in the dark.
- Turn the whole house off in one touch with a “Good Night” scene—some lights can go completely off as the kids’ dim to 10%.
- Program your lights to turn off automatically when a room is unoccupied for a certain amount of time.
- Set your lights to a maximum level of 80%; your eyes won’t notice the difference but your utility bill will!
Your kids work hard all day to turn on every light in the house. Now you can turn them all off in one touch, right from your bedside table—or even your smart phone. A “Goodnight” scene turns off all lights in the house and ensures that exterior lights are turned on to keep unwanted visitors at bay. If your little ones wake in the middle of the night, smart motion sensors will trigger a path to the bathroom or kitchen, automatically. Pre-set at 30%, the lighting path will be suitably soft and sufficient with no need to walk from room to room in order to flip a switch. Lighting can even be used for an added level of assurance. If you hear a suspicious noise, one touch of the “Panic” button activates every light in the home while flashing exterior lights. Experience High End Home Automation Today!

Have a room with a beautiful view? With Control4® automation solutions, it’s easy to leverage natural light to save energy. Depending on time of day, automated shade control allows the room to be naturally illuminated during the day, using the sunlight as a source of heat, saving energy, while using overhead and lamp lighting at night. “Movie” and “Music” buttons can be used to set the perfect lighting, audio and video settings for instant entertainment. One press dims the lights, lowers the shades, and selects the correct audio and video settings to commence the movie of your choice.
