favorites

OS 3 is Control4’s newest operating system, and it provides unmatched personalization. Do you have frequently used rooms — like your bedroom, living room, kitchen, and office? You can set them as “favorites” so you can quickly swipe between them on your Control4 app on your smartphone. Within each room, you can control features like lighting and what music and video to play.

Rooms aren’t the only things you can set as favorites. You can make your most frequently used platforms and devices — like Spotify, your thermostat, or your front door camera — favorites, and they’ll pop up as icons on your main “dashboard” screen. You can just easily tap one of your favorites to make whatever adjustments you want, whether it’s choosing a new song or seeing who’s at your front door. The design of OS 3 aims to be intuitive, so you can use easy hold-and-drag features to move around your favorites, just like you would do to arrange apps on your phone.

interfaces

Control4 makes it easy to manage your home through your favorite devices. They’ve created advanced, sleek interfaces for mobile devices, in-wall touch screens, and handheld remotes. Most people use smartphones for communication, work, social media, and games. Now you can add managing your home to the list. Control4’s app is designed with portrait mode and displays icons for systems such as your lighting and your security, along with instant feedback of their status.

In-wall touch screens are convenient for immediate control of your home when moving between rooms. The icons are larger than your phone app, and the response time is also speedy. For many people, handheld remotes are the most intuitive to use when enjoying audio/video entertainment. Control4 has two state-of-the-art remotes for those who want remotes: the Neeo Remote and Control4 SR-260.

neeo remote

Control4’s latest remote — the Neeo remote — has a high-resolution, glass touchscreen and is crafted to hold the power of the OS 3. Not only can you access your entertainment system through the remote, you can also control your entire smart home system through it. Getting ready for a get together you’re hosting? Use the Neeo remote to play your favorite playlist, activate your “dinner party” lighting scene, and set the perfect temperature for your home. There’s no need to switch between multiple remotes and controls to create the ideal party atmosphere. Control4’s Neeo remote is sophisticated and elegant — just like the rest of their products.
