Control4 Named CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for When >> Then Automation

The homeowner personalization feature was chosen amongst leading innovations in consumer electronics across 28 product categories.

Salt Lake City, UT – November 9, 2017, 5 p.m. ET Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions, announces it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for the When >> Then Automation homeowner customization feature, as part of the newest Control4 OS 2.10 software release. Sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, products entered in this prestigious awards program are judged by a panel of independent designers, engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Launched in September 2017, When >> Then brings exciting and much needed customization capabilities to the custom-installed Control4 smart home. When >> Then personalization takes a simple approach: the user selects a When (a triggering event, such as when a time is reached on a schedule, the touch of a button or after an event occurs) and selects a Then action to take place (turn on a light, start a playlist or send a push notification). These actions can range from turning on a fan, turning lights on and off or powering down all AV devices in a room to playing a specific playlist, tuning to a favorite radio station or even sending a push notification via the Control4 App. The When >> Then personalization feature is included with the Control4 4Sight Service ($100 U.S. MSRP annually) and to homeowners who have installed Control4 OS 2.10.
“When we announced When >> Then in September, we were excited to bring an entirely new level of home personalization to our Control4 customers,” said Brad Hintze, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Control4. “We believe that giving homeowners greater control over their home, backed by the support and expertise that a Control4 managed system offers, is a key differentiator for consumers looking to get started with a custom-installed smart home. We’re excited to be recognized as a CES 2018 Innovations Award Honoree.”
