How Control4 Integration Improves Your Home Theater
Phoenix, AZ, residents can give their system a boost with these automation upgrades
We’re big fans of Control4 here at Insight Automation. Their powerful, easy-to-use control systems bring all your home automation systems under one umbrella to simplify the technology in your smart home.
Control4 systems work equally well with everything from smart security systems to motorized shades, and they’re certainly an excellent fit for your home theater. Your Control4 system can manage the A/V equipment in your home theater, but it can also do so much more. As Phoenix’s leading Control4 dealer, we can show you how to integrate other automation systems with your home theater, and we’ve listed a few of those systems below.
Integrating your lights and shades is a no-brainer when it comes to your home theater. You want absolute control over the light levels in the room, especially with higher-end displays.
Adding Control4 lighting control to your home theater brings several immediate benefits. You can control all the lights in the room from one device instead of adjusting each fixture individually. This is much more convenient, and you don’t even have to leave your seat to make any changes.
Integrated lighting control also adds convenience by controlling multiple systems at once. Instead of turning on your TV, activating your speakers and lowering the lights with separate commands, you can create a movie preset that does all three things at once.
WHOLE HOME AUDIO AND VIDEO
Sometimes you can’t avoid interruptions when you’re in the middle of your favorite movie, TV show or the big game. You have to go to the bathroom, or you need to take a phone call, or you want to grab a snack from the kitchen. Instead of pausing the action or missing a crucial play, you can hear and see whatever’s anywhere in the house with whole-home audio and video.
Never miss a moment! Whole home audio lets you transmit the sound from whatever’s playing in your home theater to speakers scattered around your home -- ideal for moments when you’re watching live content in your home theater, such as sporting events. You can take this idea a step further with distributed video, which sends the video feed from your home theater display to any other screen in your house.
One automation system specific to Control4 that fits naturally with your home theater is Intercom Anywhere. We’ve covered Intercom Anywhere in more depth previously. The system gives you easy, instant communication throughout your home and to outside lines.
Someone at the front door when you’re in the middle of watching a movie? Intercom Anywhere lets you see and speak to them and integrates with your smart locks to let them inside. Need to get ahold of someone in your house who’s in another room or on another floor? Press a button and you can instantly talk to them without having to shout. Want to summon everyone for family movie night? Use Intercom Anywhere to put out a call to every screen in the home at once.
As you can see, integrating your home theater with Control4 adds even greater convenience and creates new automation possibilities. To find out more, call us at 480-816-1900 or fill out our online contact form. You can also click on the chat box below to speak with a customer service representative.
