Lighting Solutions

Smart lighting is one of the biggest opportunities for you to subtly, but effectively, influence the ambiance of your home and complement the aesthetics of its decor.

You can turn on the entire room—or multiple rooms—with a single light switch, and ramp orva dim illumination to whatever level you desire. And if you don’t care for the banks of switches on your wall, your lighting controls can be centralized elsewhere, such as in a closet, to avoid
distracting from the style of your home.

Smart lighting is both beautiful and energy efficient. Your lighting automatically turns on when you need the light, but turns itself off when no one is in the room.
• Have the lights in the house turn on automatically to welcome you home.
• Use motion sensors to provide hands-free illumination.
• Program the lights to shut off automatically when a room is unoccupied.
• Use keypads to trigger more than just lights, including music, shade control, and energy settings—with a touch of a button.
• Illuminate the hallway lights automatically for safe entry, as soon as you enter the garage.
• Have your outdoor lighting turn off in the morning, and turn on as the sun goes down.
• Make your home sophisticated enough to appear to be occupied even when you’re away.

Comfort Solutions

Being comfortable encompasses more than just adjusting the temperature. Control humidity levels, automate shades, power on the hot tub on your way home, and program your entire house for maximum energy efficiency. Control4 works with the world’s leading brands, so it’s easy to integrate your automation system with radiant flooring, forced air, dual fuel and geothermal systems.

and humidity control, regardless of the time of
day or season.
