As smart devices continue to amass, homes are beginning to connect and coordinate more and more. Even the simplest homes need automation horsepower, and the demand will only grow. For instance, the average Control4 home has 40 devices connected, with large homes having over 250. This represents a 3x growth from 3 years ago.
As smart technology is brought into the home and integrated, it becomes a more integral part of the home’s infrastructure. Just like we expect our power and water to always be on and available to us, so too must our automation technology.
Whether it’s watching TV or listening to music, you could say that entertainment is the heart and soul of any home. As homeowners who love to entertain—or be entertained—we want our content readily available and easily accessible. And in today’s high-tech world, it’s not unrealistic for each family member to expect a personalized experience that allows them to watch and listen to whatever, whenever, and wherever in the home.
The increasing demand for connecting our devices—whether in a small condo or a sprawling mansion—prompted us to develop a new family of smart home controllers that are purpose-built and priced to serve a wider range of home automation and entertainment experiences; from the family room to the entire house. The all new Control4 EA family of smart home controllers.
These three new models of controllers bring even more power and performance for home automation and entertainment into any home. Note: You may gather that “EA” stands for “Entertainment Automation”. But rest assured, these insanely robust controllers are capable of controlling and automating anything from lighting, shades, climate, security and more, in addition to your entertainment experience.
So let me break down the new line for you.
