Enjoy One-Touch and No-Touch Command of Your Home

How Voice Control and the Control4 Tablet Improve Your Smart Home Automation Experience


Do you have a lot on your plate? Most people do. Between juggling family and work responsibilities and keeping up with all the important details of your day, you may discover it’s hard to find time for little luxuries. Fortunately, smart home automation makes life easier and more enjoyable – giving you the space to live a full and satisfying life. When you live in a smart home, everything responds to your command – the lights, audio-video system, motorized shades, and much more!

Best of all, a state-of-the-art system from Control4 allows you to take control of any connected technology by voice command or tapping an icon on a tablet. Keep reading to learn the two ways smart home control takes your living experience in Fort Worth, TX, to a whole new level.

Smart Home Voice Control

It’s almost like science fiction – controlling your home by speaking to it. And yet, that’s what Control4 offers: your own personal, artificial intelligence butler. Unlike a standalone voice assistant that simply plays a song, tells you the weather, or shares the daily news, Control4 integrates popular voice assistants (Alexa, Google Assistant, and others) into their system. Alexa can power up the home theater system. Google can dim the lights in your living room. And your Echo can let you see live feeds from your security cameras.

You enjoy all the benefits of your smart home without lifting a finger. Now, isn’t that a great way to take some things off your plate? Here’s something else you can do. As you’re getting ready for bed, tell Google Assistant to lower the motorized shades, turn off the lights, and play soothing music through your whole-home audio system. You can also lock doors, adjust the temperature, and let everyone know it’s time for dinner through your intercom system. This is luxury living at its finest!

One-Tap Access to Everything

Control4 offers several ways to connect with the technologies in your home. Voice command is one way. But others prefer the one-touch approach on their smart tablets. Control4’s OS 3 operating system is sophisticated yet simple to use. In fact, it’s actually fun! If you know how to operate your phone, then using the icon-based system is a breeze. You can also optimize the main screen with icons you use the most, such as home theater, lights, and multi-room music.

The new OS 3 system requires fewer taps to get you where you want to go. And, of course, you’re able to program “scenes” that make home automation even more streamlined. For example, let’s say you want to watch a movie in your home theater. Instead of manually controlling the lights, motorized screen, surround-sound system, and temperature, you’d touch one icon (i.e., “Movie Night”), and all the technology in the room adjusts to your preferences.

Do the same thing with all the systems in your home – and remotely! By downloading the Control4 app to your phone, you can check on your home while you’re away. View the surveillance camera feeds, lower the blinds, and turn on the lights – all with the touch of a button. Living is so easy when you have a Control4 smart home automation system.
