On the long list of retro-futuristic stuff that never came to pass are flying cars, hover boards, and holograms that let you shop with your wife while you’re actually on the couch watching football (we can all dream). While it’ll still be a long time before those happen, technology has allowed us one amazing win! Home control and automation now means you can control almost every electronic device in your house with the push of a button…from thousands of miles away! Jetsons here we come!
What is Home automation?
With more and more smart electronics playing a central role in our everyday lives, you’d think they’d be making life easier. But with so many different technology formats—Blu-ray, Bluetooth, MP3, WMV, HD, 3D, iWhatever and whatever’s-coming-next—things are getting more cluttered and complicated, not more convenient. Wouldn’t life be better if everything worked together?
Control4 makes it simple and affordable for you to intelligently control virtually any device in your home—from TVs to thermostats, door locks to DVRs— no matter where you are, using one easy-to-use interface. This is intelligent home control. A genius idea, indeed.
This is your home with a brain
Imagine. In one touch, the movie starts, your shades close and the surround sound kicks in at the perfect volume. When the sun goes down, your porch light goes on. And the whole house locks at 11 pm. Automatically.
You rush out with the kids to drop them off at school. By the time you get to the office you wonder, “Did I close the garage door?” Check from your phone and relax.
Now, live the green life without sacrificing comfort. It’s easy to control your house and reduce energy use.
These are a few of our favorite Home automation products, please stop by and see what else we have to offer.
