Make your everyday life easier
Control4’s tag line is “Everyday Easy” and that is exactly what we love about it. Control4 takes all the different technologies in your house or business and makes them work together- seamlessly. From a single remote, touch pad, iPhone (and soon Android), iPad, or PC, control almost every aspect of your environment- sound, lighting, security, even your blinds!
The many advantages of Control4:
- Affordable- start simply by integrating all your tv and dvd remotes into one and then upgrade from there
- Easy to install- we can install Control4 in any house, new or not-so-new!
- Easy to use- designed for everyone in your family to use
- Compatible with your iPhone, iPad, computer, and soon, your Android phone
- Easy to integrate- integrates easily with other components ex: home security systems
- Energy management- can help you manage your energy consumption, saving you money on your monthly bills
We love the Control4 system so much our two head technicians have it installed in their own houses!
Shane’s brand new home has everything Control4 has to offer- touch pad screens, lighting control, security system, 12 different audio zones and a theatre room that puts the movie theatres to shame!
Jess has upgraded his house as well, proving that Control4 is a great way to retrofit an older house. Distributed audio and wall-mounted TV’s (with all electronics in a closet), has given Jess’s house much more space, cleaner lines and added functionality.
As a result, Shane and Jess are experts in Control4! Between the two of them, they have an intimate knowledge of Control4- how it works, what it can do, how to troubleshoot.
If you are interested in Control4 and would like more information, contact us. Shane or Jess would be happy to discuss the many possibilities of Control4.
Audio / Visual
Tired of searching for the right remote? Want to listen to the big game while you are outside bar-b-queing? Think that everyone in the house being able to listen to their own music has appeal?
Enhance your entertainment room with Control4 Home Theatre and Multi-Room Music systems.
Nothing beats a great entertainment area- one with quality sound and, most importantly, only ONE remote! The easiest way to get started with Control4 is to combine all your remotes- tv, dvd, x-box, pvr- into one easy- to-use universal remote. One press of a button will turn on your tv, another button your dvd player etc. No complicated instructions or sequences to remember. Or turn it on using your iPhone. Either way, it truly makes tv watching that much more enjoyable!
From there, there the possibilities are endless.
- Audio zones throughout the house that can play different music at the same time- a little Barry White while in the hot tub but the Red Hot Chile Peppers while in the shower, perhaps?!
- Internet radio stations- Ryan has systematically gone through all the internet radio stations. He knows which ones work and which ones don’t. He can help you choose your favourite stations to integrate into your system.
- The ultimate theatre room/man cave- surround sound, lighting scenes, projection screen! We take our theatre rooms seriously and can help you design one using Control4 that will be the envy of all your friends.
If you too take the audio/visual components of your home or business seriously, please contact us. Shane or Jess would be happy to discuss the many possibilities of Control4.
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your home. Besides functionality, it creates ambiance, making your house a home. When most people think of lighting they simply think of flicking on a switch. But with Control4, lighting becomes so much more…
Using the universal remote, your iPhone or any of the other devices that are compatible with Control4, you can:
- Create specific lighting scenes- for when you come home, for when you entertain, for when you leave the house. No more forgetting to turn the lights off and running up your energy bill when you leave the house. Turn everything off before you go with one switch by the back door or turn them off from the restaurant using your iPhone or Android phone.
- Have your outside lights turn on automatically after dark when you open your patio doors.
- Have your lights come on at your preferred strength and your favourite radio station playing at just the right volume when you take your shower in the morning.
- Press a button and have your lights dim to exactly the perfect setting for watching your favourite movie.
“What is your WOW factor?” The beauty of Control4 is that it is completely customizable to your lifestyle. In short, the possibilities are endless to making your everyday life easier.
