2. Control Interfaces
Home automation is only as good as the control you have over it. Control4 takes a consumer-first approach to designing control interfaces that are easy to use, organize and customize. The Neeo handheld remote combines touchscreen control with hard buttons for all your most-used technologies. On-wall and tabletop T4 touchscreens with the OS 3 interface allow you to view your home technologies room-by-room, via whole-home overview, or by a “Favorites” setting. And you can still access your entire smart home while you’re away —download the Control4 app on your smartphone to monitor and manage all your systems.
Control4 also has native integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for hands-free voice control.
Even the best home automation platforms falter under a home network that can’t manage the speed and bandwidth requirements for smart technology systems. Control4 solved that problem by purchasing Pakedge — an industry-leading home network solutions provider. Pakedge network solutions include high-bandwidth, low-latency routers, traffic-prioritizing switches, and enterprise-level wireless communications.
Pakedge is designed to perform flawlessly in the modern-day smart home, guaranteeing you fast and reliable control over your home technologies. Additionally, Pakedge’s cloud management system allows your Control4 dealer to monitor, troubleshoot, and upgrade your home systems from afar.
