Ultimate Fan Cave Showdown for the Super Bowl -- YOU VOTE!

By Crystal Watts

We asked two of our dealers—one from Seattle and one from Denver—to give us their thoughts on an ultimate man cave proposal for the Super Bowl. What would they do to completely outfit a Seahawk or Bronco customer’s fan cave? We think they did a pretty good job. But YOU get to decide who will get the win.

Ultimate Broncos Fan Cave

By Guest

We’d start with an HC800 to power the Fan Cave and the rest of the house. We’d have a Control4 video switch powering the 16 video zones in the home, including 3 outdoor TVs since the Colorado weather is so much better than Seattle. A Control4 audio matrix switch would power the 24 audio zones so that the game can be on everywhere in the house.

Ultimate Seahawks Fan Cave

By Guest

My ideal "Fan Cave" would have a Control4 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switch to control the eight displays in the room. For control it would have a 7" portable touch screen remote, with a HC-800 doing the paddling. It would include an in-wall Control4 Keypad, with blue and bright green back-lit LED buttons—since blue and green is a much more desirable combination than blue and orange.

Let's Get (Pumpkin) Crackin'!

By Lisa Harmer

As we head into the holiday season, it's time to revisit a few favorite family traditions. We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year, which should be interesting since I managed to get my Control4 system installed but I still have no furniture in my formal dining room. Card tables it is, people! I'm not too worried about the turkey and potatoes and I make a killer gravy. Baking, however, is not my thing. A somewhat touchy subject since my mom is famous for her homemade pumpkin pies. I have never ever been able to emulate her perfectly flaky, perfectly designed pie crusts no matter how many hands-on lessons she gave me.

Automation Turned "Hauntomation"

By Crystal Watts

We’ve heard about some pretty cool things—besides the home—that people around the world are automating, such as spas and salons, car dealerships, fitness centers, driving ranges and bowling alleys, a super cool equestrian center, and the list goes on and on. But one of the more ironic ones we’ve seen was a project that popped up on our radar just this month in our own backyard. It’s called the “Scared Haunt,” and it’s a fully-automated haunted house that...
