Offering a new peace-of-mind solution, Intercom Anywhere lets
homeowners talk with anyone at the front door and activate a home
automation scene with the touch of a button from anywhere in the world.
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 31, 2018--
(NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions,
announces the availability of the new Control4 Intercom Anywhere,
including a new app for iOS and Android mobile devices. With Intercom
Anywhere, Control4 homeowners can receive video intercom calls from a
Control4 Door Station, enabling them to see and communicate with
visitors at the front door or gate, whether they’re home or away. In
addition, homeowners will see who’s at the door prior to answering the
call, and can simultaneously activate a home scene such as turning on
lights, opening the gate, or unlocking the door or garage in response to
who has arrived. Homeowners can also quickly activate alerts such as
sounding an alarm, locking all doors, or turning on all interior and
exterior lighting for additional safety measures.

“Intercom Anywhere adds compelling everyday utility and capability to
Control4 smart homes — elevating the “smart doorbell” through a
comprehensive in-the-home/away-from-the-home peace-of-mind solution that
unifies access control, video surveillance, security, and interactive
communication,” said Control4 Chairman and CEO Martin Plaehn.
Peace-of-Mind with Control4 Intercom Anywhere
Control4’s Intercom Anywhere places homeowners in control with an app
that’s designed to launch and connect quickly. By providing video
previews from the Control4 Door Station, like caller-id for the front
door, homeowners can simply ignore unwanted calls, answer calls from a
welcomed guest, or accept a delivery even when they’re miles away.
Modern video doorbell products allow the use of mobile phones to see and
talk to visitors at the door, but only Control4 Intercom Anywhere
supports additional customizable programming. For example, while in an
Intercom Anywhere call, the user can turn on lights, unlock the door,
open the gate or garage, disarm or trigger the alarm, or any other
action uniquely enabled by the Control4 automation system.
Control4 Intercom Anywhere also provides new ways to communicate among
family members. Family members can make calls from Control4 Touch
Screens within the home to a family member’s mobile phone or vice versa.
The babysitter or child not answering the landline phone at the house?
Use Intercom Anywhere to dial directly to any or all Control4 Touch
Screens for a video-call to get connected, fast. Want to call the family
to dinner? One tap and you can broadcast the call to dinner throughout
Control4 offers a complete audio/video intercom system with sleek video
door stations and dedicated interactive video touch screens with premium
audio and video quality. Whether at home or away, homeowners can now
receive incoming audio and video intercom calls on their mobile devices
or call from their mobile phones to Control4 Touch Screens installed
throughout the home.
The Intercom Anywhere app can be downloaded today from the Apple store
or the Google Play store. To activate and use Intercom Anywhere, a home
must have Control4 installed, running the latest Control4 OS (v 2.10.3),
and also have an active 4Sight subscription ($100 USD Annual MSRP).
