Lighting Control

Maybe you would like to make the perfect ambiance possible in every room or are just looking for a few easy ways to save energy. No matter what your intention, intelligent lighting with Control4 is always a bright idea. You can have the lights in the house turn on automatically to welcome you home, program the lights to go on at sunset and off at daybreak, set them to replicate your normal usage pattern when you’re out of town so it looks like you’re home even when you’re not, experience hands-free illumination when entering a dark hallway with motion sensors, turn the entire house off in one touch with a “Good Night” scene or program your lights to turn off automatically when a room is unoccupied for a certain amount of time.


With Control4, it’s easy to take advantage of intelligent automation that contributes to a more comfortable home—and a more efficient planet. You can program your shades and thermostat to automatically adjust for maximum energy efficiency based on the seasons, time of day or outside temperature, control your thermostat from any Control4 interface, use dimmers, timers and occupancy sensors to reduce energy waste, use motion sensors to turn lights off automatically when rooms are unoccupied and program your pool and sprinkler systems to source water only during energy-efficient windows.


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, including receiving email alerts based on security-related actions such as the garage door being left open, the security system being triggered or a window being opened, assigning temporary security codes for the times/days when service workers are at your house, using IP cameras to keep an eye on your home no matter where you are, setting controls to give the kids limited or no access to the TV or PlayStation3, locking the whole house in one touch, accessing your security features from your mobile phone and programing your lights to mimic your usual patterns to appear as if you’re home, even when you’re not.


Whether home theater means a cozy corner of your living room or a screening room with theater seating, you’ll appreciate the flexibility of Control4 solutions when it comes to enjoying your favorite entertainment at home. You can simplify your audio, video and home theater components with one remote to control all of them, turn your television into an elegant interface from which you can access and control your entire home, access all movies in your multi-disc changer, iPod or NAS drive from one interface and search by cover art and create a one-touch scene to lower the lights and shades, plus adjust the temperature to create the perfect ambiance for movie night.


With installation easier than you ever imagined, you can have the music solution of your dreams in just a few hours. You can play music from multiple formats and sources, including radio, streaming music services, your iPod/mp3 player, an external hard drive or computer, choose to hear classical in the den, blues in the kitchen and rap in the teen’s room—all at the same time and access close to more than 4.5 million songs in any or all rooms anytime with Rhapsody.
