        • Search - Select Control4 Favorites or My Favorites, and then select the Favorite (see below) to locate and add a favorite to your Home page.

Note: You cannot delete a Custom Home page. If you don't want to use it, don't select it to display. You can always select the Control4 Home page, and then select Never for the time-out if you don't want to use your Custom Home page.

Tip: To know when you’re in your Custom Home page versus the default Control4 Home page, you‘ll see a red Control4 logo in the left corner. Select this logo to go to the Control4 Home page; select it again to return to your Custom Home page.
