Smart home OS3
Consolidate devices from across the entire house into a single screen, so you can instantly view the status of your security system, smart door locks, shades that are open, or lights throughout the home—and take immediate control. OS 3 icons visually represent individual states for connected devices, so you can instantly see whether a door is locked, the fan is on, or the garage is open. With all-new Favorites, every smart home is unique. Put your most frequently used icons on the main “dashboard” screen. Anything across your entire home can be added to the top so those icons are front and center on your phone, touchscreen, or Neeo remote when you need them. OS 3 gives you unmatched personalization and control capabilities that make your smart home uniquely your own. Mark your most frequently used rooms as favorites so you can quickly swipe between them, and every room is customizable to your liking, right down to the wallpaper for each space.
YOUR HOME, ALWAYS IN YOUR HANDS
If you're living in a Control4 Smart Home, get connected like never before. With a yearly 4Sight subscription, you’ll get the most out of your smart home with added hands-on personalization, voice control, and mobile access. From changing schedules, evolving tastes in music, or along with the seasons or holidays, 4Sight gives you access to When >> Then personalization. This hands-on customization allows you to set an automatic schedule that turns on the outdoor lights when sunset falls, customize a “Cooking” button to play jazz in the kitchen when tapped, and even change the LED colors on any keypad in the house. Adjust and experiment with many features of your automation after you’ve lived with it for a while, fine-tuning it until it’s just right.
FROM BRIGHT TO BRILLIANT
Lighting is no longer just a utility for your home. It’s an aesthetic that creates an ideal movie-viewing experience for your family, provides an ambiance that is lively for a gathering of guests, adds cheer to your holiday season, and even sets the perfect mood for a date night. With no touch at all, your home knows when you’re arriving in the evening and sets your lights to lead the way. You’ll never come home to a dark house again. Motion sensors also provide hands-free illumination to the restroom or kitchen in the middle of the night. Additionally, they’ll trigger lights to turn off when no one is occupying a room, closet, or pantry area. With Control4 and voice control, you can take hands-free to the next level. Ask your kitchen to light the way when your arms are full. Set the mood easily by asking your dining room to lower the lights to 40%. Or tell your house to turn off every light from the comfort of your bed.
CONNECT, COMMUNICATE, AND CONTROL LIKE NEVER BEFORE
When your mobile device is part of the intercom experience, you’ll always know who’s at the door. From wherever you are—from the backyard to the back lands—quickly tap a custom button within the app, such as “Delivery”, to disarm the alarm, turn on the light, and unlock the door. Once that important package is placed safely inside, another tap secures the house once again. When someone rings the doorbell on your Control4 Door Station, you’ll see and hear who is calling before you decide to answer, or not. Crisp, clear video will display on touch screens throughout the house. You can choose to accept and communicate, or simply press ignore to send them packing.
