A Few Creative Ways to Enjoy Your Control4 System


From Entertainment to Security, Control4 Innovates Daily Life

Control4 systems have been favorites in the home automation market, and for many good reasons. Their ease of use and expansive integration ecosystem provide unmatched results in Gallatin-area homes.

The new-and-improved operating system, the Smart Home OS 3 (more commonly called simply OS 3), provides some of the most seamless entertainment capabilities we’ve seen yet, including the Active Media Bar that lets you swipe through endless high-fidelity tracks and control what you want to play in every room from any screen.

Control4 users rave about their installations, but as expert integrators, we think that their Control4 systems still have untapped potential. Curious to learn how else you could utilize this technology in your Tennessee home? See for yourself below!

Take Your Automation Outdoors!

During this time where “social distancing” holds space in our vocabulary, outdoor automation and entertainment promise some escape – whether you want some “me time” or a different family pastime. When your four walls start feeling more stifling than cozy, it’s time to head outside and take all the automated controls you enjoy indoors out to the patio, grill or pool.

Control4 makes it easy. Scroll through playlists from your mobile device while you’re lounging by the pool, control your integrated landscape lights to set a mood, or turn on your TV so you can watch sitcoms while you prepare food.

We can program your Control4 system for specific scenes that you can set in one button press. For example, if you’re tired from a long day at work and want to sit in the jacuzzi as soon as you get home, we can configure an “Outdoor Oasis” scene that heats the water to your desired temperature, dims the lights and turns on the integrated outdoor fans.

Vintage Player, Modern Music Control

Old meets new when you blend sophisticated audio distribution with the music you’ve been collecting for decades. If you miss the good old days of listening to music from retro devices, we know you’ll be delighted that these analog music players can still fit seamlessly in your home.

We’ll set up a whole home audio system and help you choose where you want to direct the music coming from your turntable or CD player. Have a pianist in the family? They might want to know that they can stage a whole-home concert (including outdoors!) by using their grand piano or keyboard as the music source.

Create a Cat or Dog-Friendly Scene for Security

Almost three-fourths of American homeowners have a cat or dog, and we’d venture to guess that 100 percent of those animals are considered part of the family and, well, spoiled. Believe it or not, our canine and feline friends can benefit from Control4 automation.

A “Pet” scene can temporarily disarm some sensors in your security system as soon as they detect that your furry friend has exited their pet door. That gives them freedom to roam during evening hours without waking you up to loud alarms. We can also include automatic light activation in that “Pet” scene to give them a better view.
