Which system is right for your home? How will you stay up to date on the latest technology? As a Control4 integrator, we can help! That’s why we’ve put together this blog, to help you understand why you should work with a professional Control4 installer when upgrading your Detroit, MI home. Read on for more!
Add the Devices You Love
Smart devices seem to be coming out of the woodwork these days. Everything from Sonos wireless audio systems, to NEST thermostats… to smart refrigerators and washing machines! The beauty of a smart home system is that it takes all of these different devices and helps them speak to each other. Control4 is at the forefront of facilitating communication between the most popular smart devices available today.
If you’re already a fan of smart technology like Sonos and NEST, or you simply want to add the newest trendy items to your existing system, your integrator can help you install and program everything to fit your lifestyle. Unlike some manufacturers, Control4 doesn’t limit the devices you can add to only the ones they build – you can add many of today’s top brands for a system that truly reflects your lifestyle!
Customize Your Controls
Control4 is also one of the leaders in interface customization. They offer a lot of options for personalizing the controls that you’ll need and your integrator can help program it to respond to the way you want to communicate.
One of the most popular ways to control your system is with Amazon Alexa. While it’s not complicated to find the apps you’ll need to control your different devices, when you’re upgrading an entire smart home it can become a hassle. It’s a good idea to let your integrator find the necessary apps and integrate them with the Control4 interface because they’ll make each work seamlessly with the system.
Your integrator can also program “scenes,” which group functions together for frequent use. When you want a single button to control the lights, shades, screen and projector in your home theater, your integrator can program a button that makes it all happen.
Other Reasons to Work with an Integrator
While the DIY approach may seem appealing – especially when you consider some of the plug-and-play options currently on the market, you’ll want to consult a professional if you want a true smart home.
Integrators do a lot of the things that you may not necessarily thing about, like:
- Wiring: making sure each of your devices has the appropriate connections so they can run smoothly, and making sure there are enough connections so you can continue to add devices in the future.
- Racking: adding numerous components can quickly clutter your spaces with devices and wires. A professional installer finds an unused space in your home to store them, and arranges them so they’re easy to repair if needed.
- Networking: many homeowners don’t know the difference between bandwidth, coverage and Quality of Service. If you’re not well-versed in current networking terms and trends, you may find your system doesn’t work as well as you’d hoped.
