You’re in Control with Control4

You’re in Control with Control4

Control4 really gets it.  Not only do they develop cutting-edge technology for you, today’s tech-savvy homeowners, but they enable you to integrate your own upgrades. Now that’s smart! Actually, Control4 calls it a Smart Home Skill for Alexa and it’s available with their 4Sight subscription.

Control4 integrates Alexa voice control for your entire home, allowing voice-activated commands for every automated “smarthome” feature. What’s really cool is that current clients can add Alexa-enabled devices to their C4 system without needing their Electronics Systems Contractor (us) to perform a service call. You’ll be able to discover lights, lighting scenes and your thermostat. You can then customize the name on your customer portal.

Set-up is a simple process and they provide a step-by-step video to walk you through it.  The video, by the way, is only about 2 minutes long. It’s that easy! You can integrate an Amazon Echo, Dot, Tap or Fire TV with Voice Remote into your OS2.82 or newer Control4 system.  The video takes you through connecting your Amazon device to your Amazon account, selecting the Control4 Smart Home skill feature, and then on to setting up your voice commands for Lighting and HVAC!  For more sophisticated voice control of audio and video, well, we’re here to help.  

That’s it! Now, don’t forget to lock the door behind you – oh, wait – Alexa already did! Give us a call today to get started! New to Control4, call us to learn more about making your home smarter!
