Media distribution gives you the ability to access and distribute all of your favorite music or video libraries throughout your entire home, instantaneously. Control4 has recently introduced a new line of media distribution products that allow you to keep all of your audio and video sources in one location, but have access to them no matter where you are in your home. Combine that with the amazing control features of Control4 home automation and you’ll always have total control of your media without the need for electronic components scattered throughout the house.
Whether you’re a casual radio listener or a true fanatic, music is the soundtrack of your life. The problem is even the most sophisticated stereo systems can get neglected in favor of other, more portable or simplistic, options. Our goal is to integrate your entire audio experience so you can listen to whatever you want, no matter where you are in your home.
The key to powerful music distribution is a multi-zone Control4 amplifier. A “zone” is a dedicated area of your home that you can control the audio levels separate from the rest of the house. The amount of zones you will need depends on the size the installation. If you already have speaker wires ran to all your rooms, you’re ahead of the game. If not, we set up your system to stream over your wired or wireless home network. And you’re definitely not limited only to inside spaces, we can add outdoor entertaining areas and extend the reach of your music!
Your music can even tie into the lighting “scenes” (or moods) and different scheduled events. Would you like to wake up gently to certain music, with both the music volume and lighting gradually increasing? Perhaps you like to hear the day’s scores and headlines as you get home from work at night? Or maybe you like to put the baby to sleep as the music gently fades to silence?
It’s difficult to overstate the impact that total audio can have on your lifestyle. The bottom line is that with Media Distribution, you’ll enjoy a listening experience that transcends devices, sources, locations, and playlists and with our highly trained technicians doing the install, you’ll have the beautiful aesthetics to go along with it!
Smart Door Locks, equipped with either push-button or touch-screen entry, are more than just a convenient way to get your house without fumbling with keys.
When combined with a Control4 home automation system, they can keep you informed about who is entering your home. Our High Definition Technologies technicians can program them to lock themselves automatically so you’ll never leave a door unlocked without knowing. They can also be programmed to send you a message any time they are locked or unlocked using specific entry codes, such as those by your children or by service personnel.
Combine smart locks with outside cameras to see and hear exactly who is at the door, no matter where you are in the house. You can even unlock the door without leaving your couch or your desk, letting friends in while keeping strangers safely outside.
Worried that you already have a security system? Our installers can configure your new Control4 controller to make your existing equipment work together! Add arm/disarm functions straight from your door locks, your cell phone, your touch panels, and even your garage remote control.
Obviously, your alarm company will be notified when an intruder triggers your alarm. But why end there? Because of your new security capabilities, you can flash all your interior and exterior lights and blast sirens at full volume through your home audio system, making your home a very hostile place for anyone who doesn’t belong there.
Going away for a long trip? Have our installers set up “mockupancy” program that turns your interior lights on and off in patterns simulating you’re home. Studies have shown that burglars are much less likely to attempt to enter houses that are occupied. If you’re concerned about access to the medicine cabinet or gun safe, we can install contact or vibration sensors to inform you when an area has been accessed. Temperature and moisture sensors can be installed to alert you to problems like furnace failure or leaking water.
No single security system will completely protect you or your home from harm, but all these steps add up. With security products and features from Control4 installed by High Definition Technologies, you can enjoy a greater peace of mind whether you’re at home or abroad.
We often expect our homes to be comfortable no matter what season it is or how bad the weather is outside. But sometimes we take climate control for granted, heating and cooling your home can be expensive, especially if it’s cranked at full blast whether you’re home or not.
One of the best things about having a smart home is its ability to respond intelligently to changing conditions. Many thermostats offer you the ability to set minimum and maximum temperatures for different times of the day. You can even have different settings for weekdays and weekends. What if you’re away on vacation though? Or what if you’re at home on a from work because of a holiday or sick day? With Control4, your thermostat can automatically sense what “mode” your house is in and respond with the perfect temperature for whatever you’re doing, whether home or away.
Smart thermostats can receive and respond to external input from a remote source. Too often the most accessible location for the thermostat is not in the best place for the sensor that controls it. Our installers can put a small sensor in a hidden location to maximize the look of your home. Since you’ll be able to adjust the temperature from just about any device (phone, tablet, touch screen, and even televisions), there’s really no reason to have the thermostat anywhere that’s visible. You could even hide it in a closet and still be comfortable all year round.
Our technicians can supplement your new climate controls with additional products that can be controlled through your home automation system. A Control4 Wireless Fireplace Switch can turn on your fireplace from any interface in the home, including phones, tablets, or PC’s. If a certain area of your home gets a lot of sun at a specific time of the day, we can install shades that automatically lower to keep your air conditioning bills lower. During the winter, we can program the shades to raise in order to catch the daytime light and close them for privacy in the evening. Even more, your Control4 system will know exactly when the sun rises and sets every day, so you won’t have to do anything to adjust schedules as the days get shorter and longer!
Want to change the mood in an instant? Our installers can create different “scenes” that will change all of your lighting simultaneously with just one push of a button. An elegant multi-button keypad replaces an unsightly bank of light switches to provide easy one-touch control of activity-based scenes. “Cooking,” for example, turns on lighting underneath the overhead cabinets and over the island to make food prep easy. A “Dining” button activates ambient, dimmed lighting from ceiling fixtures, and triggers the island and track lighting for a perfect entertaining atmosphere every time.
Returning home after a long day in the office? From your car, activate a lighting path from the garage to the kitchen so you can focus on carrying in the groceries instead of fumbling for a light switch or stumbling up a stair. With the addition of other products, you can even have the TV turn on the nightly news.
A “Goodnight” button turns off all lights in the house and ensures that exterior lights are turned on to keep unwanted visitors away. If your little ones wake in the middle of the night, smart motion sensors will trigger a path to the bathroom or kitchen. The lighting path can bu pre-set to 30%, suitably soft and sufficient with no need to walk from room to room in order to flip a switch. If you hear a suspicious noise, one touch of the “Panic” button activates every light in the home while flashing exterior lights, if you so choose.
With the Control4® MyHome app on your iPhone, Ipad, or Android device, one touch of the “Entry” button creates a lighting path into the kitchen and disarms the security system so entry is effortless. While you’re on your way home, use the app to ensure your driveway lights and sidewalk path is turned on.
Thanks to Control4 smart lighting solutions, and High Definition Technologies installations, you’ll achieve the seemingly impossible quicker than you can imagine. We will always be there to help you in any way, but you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to make changes and adjustments on your own. You’ll be able to keep changing the settings and scenes as new ideas and needs arise in your day to day!
Adjust the thermostat from your phone, change TV channels from your tablet, shut off lights and arm the security system from your laptop. It’s up to you. As long as you have a data connection, you’re in control of your smart home. Control4 calls it "Anywhere Access."
One of the most appealing features of a home automation system is that you can control just about anything from anywhere. This is standard behavior with a Control4 system right out of the box.
Your Control4 system can send messages to your smartphone or tablet about the status of your system, so you always know what’s going on. Custom alerts such as "Garage Door Open" or "Water Leak" can be sent to inform you of important events as soon as they happen, allowing you to respond quicker than ever before.
The ability to control anything in your house can be invaluable. Your High Definition Technologies installer will configure your system so you can manage and monitor your security system, and even disable your alarm and unlock the front door if a friend or family member needs to get inside. You’ll be able to change the thermostat from across the globe just in case you left the heat cranked up or from the airport so your house comfortable when you get back. You can run preset lighting sequences to fool burglars into thinking someone’s at home.
Social media and smart phones give us constant updates about news around the world. Now that world can include your house and everything in it. Knowing exactly what is going as it happens will ease your mind on while you’re away, no more worrying about whether the garage is open or the front door is locked. Anywhere Access keeps you in your home, even if you’re thousands of miles away.
