Technology for the smart house
Control systems within a home automation system are growing more and more popular in Malta. The popularity is not merely due to modern trends but especially because smart systems really live up to their names, offering automation solutions with great functionality that make your home smarter and safer to manage.
In this field, Control4 is a brand that stands out. It offers the ultimate home automation solutions by making those products work by integrating everything from lighting control, audio visual equipment, climate control, CCTV & IP intercom systems - through the Control4 APP or one of their touch screen interfaces.
Control4 premium automation solutions make you the true master of your domain. Easily and intelligently controlling every aspect of your house – from lights, security, climate control to home theatre, music and more – even if you are miles away. Or you can opt to let things happen automatically. Music can stream throughout the house from any source, and, when it’s game time, you can have the lights dim, the shades lowered and the TV tuned to the right input, with one tap. Your security system arms automatically as the lights go out the minute everyone’s safe in bed. It’s that simple and fully customizable for any home, big or small.
Your most valuable asset is your family. Control4 can give you complete control over all the systems and devices in your home so your treasures are always safe and secure. Stay in-the-know with 24/7 home monitoring from your smartphone. Make sure your kids didn’t leave the garage door open – or, if they did, close it instantly. View your security cameras any time, from anywhere and get text alerts based on certain actions, whether it’s when your teenager gets home from dance class or if the dishwasher springs a leak.
When it comes to entertaining it’s usually the little things that make a big impact. Control4 put music and video at your command from your favourite device. Stream high-fidelity sound to every room in the house. Play high-definition video from virtually any source on any TV. Enjoy your personal music collection stored on your smartphone or tablet or stream services like Spotify, Rhapsody and thousands of free internet radio stations. Plus, you’ll enjoy more comfort, convenience and peace of mind. Command all things at home, whether you’re there or away: lighting, security, music, TV and so much more.
Also with the all-new Favourites, every smart home becomes unique. You can easily put your most frequently used icons on the main “dashboard” screen. Anything across your entire home can be added to the top so those icons are front and centre on your phone or tablet, touchscreen interfaces, or the Neeo remote, when you need them. Fewer touches. Fewer taps.
Just like using your phone, it’s as easy as hold-and-drag to add, arrange, remove, and favourite your most commonly used devices, streaming services, and scenes.
When deciding for a Control4 system you can immediately go for whole-home automation or start small by automating one or two rooms like the living room or sitting room. But once you try it, no matter which application, the experience is unforgettable and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without home automation.
Control4 is built to grow as you go. It is also a retro fit solution which allows you to add the system at a later date.
