How Does it Work?

It all begins with the rack. With the consolidation of most control devices — for instance, TV set-top boxes, into a central location within the home. The system is wired all up together following a specification, connecting each device to a control module powered by Control4; this runs the OS 3 operating system which orchestrates and “talks” to all other smart home devices.

The rack communicates with the rest of the home via a high-speed Cat 6 data cable (much more reliable compared to WiFi smart systems). Wireless options are also available for older homes or in the case of refurbishment.

Home Control

From a one-stop app to dedicated touchscreens, the Control4 system allows for multiple ways to control the home and its many integrated smart devices. Beyond the on-and-off control light switches provide, for example, smart switches can be set to “scenes” allowing the control of not just multiple lights; but many devices with the press of a button. Allowing for an ever-growing number of ways to turn your house into a home that works for you.

Centralised App

Control smart home devices remotely from anywhere connected to the internet.

Dedicated Touchscreens

Control smart devices from key rooms using either tabletop or in-wall user-friendly touchscreens.

Smart Remotes

Meet NEEO. The latest in media control. With a built-in touchscreen and buttons to control TVs and smart devices.

Smart Switches

Set the perfect scene with a programmable smart switch able to control everything from lighting to temperature.

Home Automation

Think of it as your very own helping hand around the house. Control4’s operating system OS 3 is intelligently capable of automating a series of personalised actions based on a number of triggers to choose from:

  • Scheduled timers
  • Button press
  • Sensors (motion, temperature, humidity, etc)
  • Events, or controlled by another device.

These are called Scenes and can be managed within the user control panel.

Good Morning Scene

Set to happen automatically at a certain time in the morning, a “Wake Up” scene opens the shades gradually over a period of time, ramps up the temperature, and turns on the TV to your favourite news channel.

Away Scene

A single tap turns off all lights in the house, powers down audio/video devices, locks the doors, arms the security system, dials back the temperature, and ensures the garages are closed.

Welcome Scene

When you open the garage door, pathway lights illuminate to lead your way into the house while your playlist starts in the family room and the garage closes itself as you enter.

Party Scene

As guests arrive, your house puts itself into entertaining mode by lighting up the backyard, firing up the jacuzzi, and setting the music to a favourite party playlist in the most frequented spaces.

Good Night Scene

When it’s time to turn in, the house puts itself into sleep mode, turning off all music, TVs, and lights, locking the doors, arming the alarm, and adjusting the thermostat for comfortable rest.
