How Can You Automate Your Dream Home?
Explore the Possibilities at the 2018 Artisan Home Tour
The home of your dreams would be something that speaks to you – the architecture and layout that projects your sense of what a home should be, and interior design and furnishings that fit with your life and sense of style.
Perhaps your dream home also would employ the latest technology to let you enjoy it to the fullest. You could press a button to start your favorite music playing all through your house. Use your voice to set your lights to the perfect settings when you come home from work. See who is ringing your doorbell, right from the smartphone in your hand.
These things are not the stuff of dreams anymore; it is something you too can have for your Minneapolis home with a Control4 system.
You can even check out a Control4 system in action at the 2018 Artisan Home Tour all through June. You can buy tickets to the tour at Holiday station stores or Bachman's.
Lelch Audio Video is featuring Control4 automation in homes 7 and 8 that includes whole home audio, security, video distribution, lighting control, and much more.
If you have always struggled with the gaggle or remotes on the coffee table for your various devices, a Control4 system can banish them to the drawer. A customized touchscreen or handheld remote could provide one-button control to turn on the TV or projector, the Apple TV, the surround system, and dim the lights at the same time. Better yet, if you like to just use your voice, a command to your Alexa speaker such as “Alexa, start Movie Night” could do the same thing - without lifting a finger.
With a Control4 system, you can be in full commands of your lights. Press a “Goodnight” button to turn off all your lights at bedtime, and leave a pathway of dimmed lights to the stairs and kitchen. Set an “Away” mode that can randomly turn lights on and off to make your home look occupied. Group sets of lights under one button to dim them all at the same time without going to several switches. And there’s much more you can do, as you can coordinate your lights with entertainment, lighting control, and motorized shades.
For the utmost in security, a Control4 system can coordinate surveillance from security cameras around your property. Keep an eye on the kids in the backyard. Monitor the inside of your home while you’re away on vacation. Get alerted if there is unusual activity in or around your home. If there is an intruder, the Control4 system can turn on lights to startle the potential culprit.
