Control4 System User Guide

Using MyHome Apps

Use the Control4® system MyHome apps to access and manage your Control4 system from popular mobile devices, smartphones, PCs, or Macs.

 

 

MyHome lets you control security, lighting, temperature, music and video in the same way you control devices on a touch screen or on-screen Navigator. The display in MyHome looks similar to the user interface on a 7” In-Wall Touch Screen but with fewer features.

 

Below are examples of what the interfaces look like.
