Kicking off a multi-city tour to connect with interior design
professionals and architects as well as their discerning clients,
Control4 has automated an Airstream to act as a mini smart home on
wheels. Designed to showcase how smart home technology can work behind
the scenes to complement the décor of any residence, the Control4
Airstream will feature smart lighting, demonstrate the convenience of
whole-home audio and video entertainment, the peace-of-mind that comes
with intelligent safety and security, and the convenience of voice
control. In addition, over the course of the 12-week coast-to-coast
"Smart Design, Smart Living" Tour, Control4 will offer numerous
"Designing for Connected Homes" training classes. The goal of the Tour
is to provide design professionals with the knowledge, education and
resources to make connected, smart living a foundational aspect of their
"With technology playing an essential part of our lives, we seek to
develop products and experiences that will complement and augment the
beauty and functionality of every home," said Susan Cashen, Control4's
Senior Vice President of Marketing, Support and Training. "At Control4,
we believe in adapting technology to complement the character of all
home environments and in creating an atmosphere that appeals to any
homeowner and family. That's why we have created these programs — to
bring the importance of designing for connected homes to a like-minded
community that will benefit from these opportunities."
Control4 Smart Home Design Program
As a proud CEDIA partner,
Control4 will launch the Control4 Smart Home Design Program with 9
different courses worth up to one (1) continuing education credit per
course for AIA, AIBD, or NARI members, or .1 CEU for IDCEC members.
Participants will be provided proper paperwork to submit for credits.
With a wide berth of topics, designers and architects can learn lighting
and shading system design tools and tips, designing for multi-room
entertainment solutions, as well as key elements of intuitive design
integration for connected homes. Popular courses include:
"Disguise and Hide - Designing for Technology" - This course
reviews the three-pronged approach to hiding technology-advanced
planning, design philosophy, and product selection-which are available
for minimizing the visual impact of electronics such as speakers, video
displays, controls, cameras, and more.
Illuminated" - As smart lighting has become a standard in new
construction and remodel projects, designers seek knowledge on lighting
control terminology, benefits and misconceptions of smart lighting,
identifying where automation can solve common lighting design problems.
and Window Treatments - Motorize, Integrate and Automate" - There
are numerous types of window shade treatments in both residential and
commercial, indoor and outdoor structures. This course provides an
introduction to these solutions and considerations for why, when, and
how to automate shading treatments for various types of projects.
Homes are now being designed for connected, smart living, and the
technology allows for robust control and automation that goes well
beyond many simple single-product solutions. Architects and interior
designers will need to become experts to guide their clients through the
process. New research conducted by the National Association of Home
Builders sees the percentage of homes with smart technology rising to
record levels, and finds that architects, builders and designers are
relying on high-tech home design and construction as a differentiator to
build their businesses.*
The Control4 Design courses will be offered as seminars, lunch-and-learn
events, and networking opportunities at key locations throughout 2017.
