The possibilities are endless — and setup is easier and more affordable than you ever imagined. Here are just a few of the many ways to enjoy your own private home theater.

Use just one remote to turn on your entire home theater with Control4.

If it usually takes you at least 4 remotes and a couple of references to the manuals or your 8-year-old to turn on your home theater, you’ll love Control4. One-touch can turn on the TV or projector, the DVD changer, satellite, stereo system, and even lower a projector screen, sets everything up for watching a movie, and gives you a library of cover art so you can easily select the movie you want to see. Your one-touch theater setting can also lower the lights and shades in the room and raise or lower the temperature to create the perfect ambiance.

 

Bring music to every corner of your home by using one of the many flexible Control4 multi-room audio solutions. Whether your home audio needs are very simple, highly specialized, or somewhere in between, Control4® products make it easy to find a solution that will rock your entire house. The possibilities are endless — with installation and operation easier than you ever imagined. And because Control4 audio products are so affordably priced, there is a multi-room audio solution for practically any budget.

With easy access to your digital music collection, multiple music streams from Rhapsody*, and your iPods, your options are virtually limitless. You can listen to the game while you’re working in the garage. Your wife is enjoying her favorite Top 40/broadway hits/reggae playlist in the kitchen while she’s finishing dinner. Your daughter is rocking out to every Britney song ever produced in her room, and the boys are cranking some horrible rap stuff in the game room. The best part? You have total control over what your kids are listening to, and how loud it is.

With Control4® lighting products, you can create custom, ambient lighting throughout your home and you can do so much more. Our solutions help you create a beautifully lit home that is also responsive to your needs. From remote control to smart lighting that helps you save electricity — Control4 solutions offer endless possibilities. And because Control4 lighting products are so affordably priced, there is a complete package for practically any budget. Here are just four of the many ways you can use our lighting solutions to create a smarter, more comfortable home.

Turn your whole house “off” with Control4.

Picture it. No more midnight re-con missions through the house to make sure lights are off and the house is secure for the night. With Control4, you simply set a Good Night Scene and with the single push of a button, lights will turn off, a bathroom light might dim at 10% for the kids, the TVs shut off, the thermostat drops the temperature a few degrees, and the alarm is armed. Your system will notify you if any doors are left open, including the garage. Even better, you can easily add lighting control to any existing home because the products leverage existing wiring.

 

Home is all about comfort. And now your home can be made even more comfortable with automated climate control from Control4®. Whether it is simply controlling the house temperature from a single thermostat or using a more complex combination of multiple thermostats, motorized blinds, and remote temperature sensors, with Control4 products it’s easy to find a climate control solution that fits your needs perfectly. The possibilities are endless — and setup is easier than you ever imagined. And because Control4 products are so affordably priced, there is a climate control solution for practically any budget. Here are just a few ways you can create an intelligent, comfortable home.

Always wake up on the right side of the bed with Control4.

If a blaring alarm buzzer isn’t exactly your ideal way to greet a new day, Control4 can help. Create a custom Wakeup Scene that eases you into the morning. Pick a time and the lights will gradually come up, the shades open to let in the morning sun, and the thermostat kicks on to start warming up the house. The TV might come on quietly with the morning news, or your favorite morning music mix can start playing through the multi-room music system, and the coffee maker starts percolating in the kitchen. All you have to do is open your eyes, stretch and welcome the new day!

 

A little peace of mind goes a long way. That’s why Control4 makes it easy for you to enhance the safety and security of your home in a number of ways. More than just a traditional security system, Control4 can make sure that lights are turned on when you’re on your way home or away on vacation, monitors motion sensors and IP cameras, alerts you if garage doors have been left open and even lets you keep track of your kids so you can make sure they’re where they’re supposed to be, when they’re supposed to be there. Here are just a few ways you can use Control4 to make sure your family is safe and sound.

Never come home to a dark house again with Control4.

When your garage door or front door opens, your home will automatically turn on key interior lights or light up the walkway to your door.  As you move from room to room, motion sensor can turn the lights on and off for you…ideal if you’re carrying a sleepy child to bed or have an armful of groceries.
