Smart Home Personalization and Fine-Tuning after the Pro Install
a dealer completes a Control4 installation and homeowners have the
chance to experience living in their smart homes, the family often wants
to tweak and fine-tune the automation without having to engage their
dealer to make simple adjustments. The ability for homeowners to "edit"
and "add" to the automation within their home has been a top request by
both Control4 customers and dealers. When > > Then, now included with the
Control4 4Sight service, is an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface,
enabling customers to make adjustments to the automation settings in
their homes directly, personalizing their Control4 system at any time
after the installation.
"Combined with the skills and stability of a professional installation
by trained and certified Control4 Dealers, we're enabling a perfect
blend of professional expertise with a homeowner's ability to establish
and change their automation preferences," said Martin Plaehn, Control4
CEO. "As homeowners live with and adjust their personalized Control4
home to match the way they live, we believe they will expand their smart
home with additional devices and integrated systems, which is great
repeat business for our network of expert Control4 Dealers."
For the first time, Control4 provides homeowners with the direct ability
to create smart home actions when a button is pressed, when motion is
detected, when a condition occurs, when it's a specific time, or when a
door is opened or closed. For example, with When > > Then, homeowners can
change the schedule for the porch light, change which music plays when a
living room keypad button is pressed, or send a push notification when
the garage door is opened.
Control4's When > > Then personalization takes a simple
approach; the user selects a When (on a schedule, with a touch of
a button, or after an event) and selects a Then action to take
place (turn on a light, start a playlist, or send a push notification).
Homeowners who subscribe to the 4Sight service and have OS 2.10
installed will have immediate access to the When > > Then on customer.control4.com.
