No more asking who's going to install all of those holiday
electronics. Homeowners can choose from Control4's huge third-party
ecosystem to get their season underway.
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions,
boasts a huge smart home ecosystem with nearly 11,000 third-party
devices including over 2,900 SDDP-enabled products such as the latest 4K
HDTVs from Samsung which bring plug and play installation into Control4®
systems. This holiday season, homeowners can reach out to any of the
5,500 Control4 authorized dealers who can seamlessly integrate the
latest in consumer electronics just in time for the holidays.
On average, Control4 customers have over 40 connected devices in their
homes that are orchestrated by Control4. Whether they want to control
the home on a touchscreen, keypad, mobile device, or with voice control
using Amazon Alexa, which is now also available in Canada as well as the
U.S. and the UK, Control4 offers the most convenient and intuitive way
to control a multitude of smart home scenes for the holidays or any
other time of year. With the Control4 skill for Amazon Alexa, a
"Holiday" scene dims the lights throughout the house, turns on a holiday
playlist, lights the gas fireplace, and puts those animatronics in
motion all with a single "Alexa, turn on holiday" voice command. For
those who are not in the holiday spirit, a verbal "Alexa, turn off the
house" can shut down the house by turning off all of the lights,
lowering the thermostat, locking the doors, closing the garage, lowering
shades, and arming the security system.
With so many devices in the Control4 third-party ecosystem, whether new
or legacy, through drivers or SDDP, homeowners have the choice to have
their systems designed for the way they live and ready for the new tech
that tends to enter the home every holiday season. Consumers flock for a
new TV, gaming system, or smart garage door opener but are frustrated
when those devices don't work with the disparate DIY smart home products
that currently proliferate the market. This dilemma is easily solved in
two ways: (1) Control4 has a vast independent authorized dealer network
that designs, supports and services Control4 devices along with these
popular products that homeowners enjoy, and (2) Control4 systems can
begin with single room control for under $1,000 yet offer the ability to
scale - in both number of connected devices and rooms -- over time.
Control4 makes the home automation experience comfortable and
hassle-free, all while offering more of what homeowners want including
the hottest streaming services like Spotify and Tidal, Alexa voice
control, doorbell station with intercom, and user personalization.
Control4 When > > Then Automation is a new way to increase
personalization by allowing homeowners to tweak actions and events in
their Control4 homes directly. The web interface is intuitive, and easy
to follow; customers subscribing to the Control4 4Sight Service ($100
annually) and have OS 2.10 installed can easily access When > > Then on customer.control4.com.
From the account, select a When (on a schedule, with a touch of a
button, or after an event occurs), and a Then action to take
place (turn on a light, start a playlist or send a push notification).
For example, with When > > Then, homeowners can set a holiday scene that When
the Christmas tree turns on, Then the overhead lights turn off.
These nuanced tweaks allow homeowners to personalize their home and
create special scenes or actions whenever they choose without having to
reach out to a dealer every time.
The Control4® Smart Home Skill for Amazon Alexa is available today in
Canada and continues to provide homeowners with the convenience of
whole-home automation through simple and intuitive voice commands that
can activate smart home scenes and control individual devices.
