What’s New in Smart Home Automation in 2017?
The New Year Is the Perfect Time to Upgrade with Control4
With the New Year in full swing, you may be thinking about improving your Williamsville, NY property. Smart home automation is one of the best ways that you can enhance property value and add convenience to your everyday life. By connecting your independent technology components with a system by Control4, you can enjoy complete command of everything from a central device. In this blog, we’ll show you why it’s the perfect time to upgrade your property with Control4.
Integrated Voice Control
As possibly the single greatest hit for the automation industry over the past few years, voice control has been a total game changer. Where smart home manufacturers used to offer simple control with the touch of a button, companies like Control4 have begun collaborating with popular device developers like Amazon and Google for increased reliability.
Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant stand among the top voice-recognition software on the planet. In fact, you probably have access to one or both right now. But what if you could use them to dim the lights, or select your favorite movie? Control4 makes it possible.
Moreover, you can group multiple systems together to work as a pre-set scene. When you say “movie time,” the lights can dim and the AV gear can turn on. Any connected shades lower and the thermostat can even adjust up or down for a comfortable viewing experience.
The Control4 Difference
If you’ve been paying attention to home technology, you know that 2016 was a banner year. While popular devices like NEST thermostat and Sonos wireless speakers didn’t debut last year, they did make a splash and became much more widely available. Control4 has recognized this shift and has made it possible to upgrade existing, individual ecosystems through integration.
That means if you’re a fan of both NEST and Sonos, you can tie both systems together under a single device with Control4. But you don’t have to stop there, because you can also upgrade individual components as needed and still connect them with your Control4 system.
