Put More Time Back into Your Day

Just as a remote control makes it easier to enjoy watching TV from the comfort of your couch, smart lighting control makes it easier than ever to adjust all the lights throughout your home from any location. Now, instead of tediously walking around your home to adjust individual light fixtures, Control4 lighting scenes allow you to quickly illuminate or shut down every light in your home with a single command.

Scenes like “Home” and “Away” are perfect for one-tap control of every light throughout your property. When you leave for the day, simply tap “Away” on your mobile phone, in-wall keypad, or activate the scene with your voice to effortlessly turn off all the lights throughout your home as you walk out the door. When you arrive home from work, tap “Home” to illuminate your front porch, entryways, and <href="#Family-Room">living room.

Whether you prefer whole-home lighting scenes or personalized room scenes for reading, cooking, or watching a movie, it’s all possible with Control4. Watch the tutorial video below to learn how to create a lighting scene.

Better Secure Your Home

Smart lighting control is a perfect extension to your existing security system, providing another layer of around-the-clock protection from potential intruders.

For instance, when you’re away on vacation, lighting scenes can help trick burglars into thinking you’re home by turning on and off at intervals to simulate occupancy inside of your property. What’s more, you can also integrate your lighting scenes with motion sensors or triggered alarms to startle intruders or to create a visible pathway to quickly exit the house in the event of a fire.

Control4 gives you the power to edit and schedule your lighting scenes from any remote location, so you never have to worry if your home looks uninhabited while you’re away for an extended period. From the convenience of your mobile phone, check in on your home and ensure your desired lighting scenes are activated at any time of day or night.

Bring Life to Your Hosted Events

Do you often entertain for the holidays or sporting events? Maybe you host a quarterly work party or yearly family get-together at your home. Whatever the event, lighting scenes help create the perfect ambiance to liven up any activity inside or outside your property.

Create an “Entertain” scene that instantly illuminates your patio, pool and spa, and raises the lights in your living spaces to 70 percent. Or create a “Romance” scene that dims the dining room lighting and illuminates your home’s coziest accent lights for a relaxing date night environment with your loved one.

Editing your personalized lighting scenes is easier than ever with Control4. Want to add a room to your “Entertain” scene? Perhaps you want to change the brightness of your dining room when you activate your “Romance” scene. Whatever the adjustment, it’s as simple as a few taps and swipes on your smart device of choice.


Harness the power of smart lighting control from Control4 by creating and utilizing personalized scenes that also integrate with the rest of your smart devices for even more convenience, comfort, and security.
