31 Oct What is a Smart Home OS part 2
Welcome back to part two of our series on Smart Home Operating Systems. As an authorised Gold Dealer for Control4 systems we recognise how important it is for our clients to understand the details of what they have installed in their home; so if you would like to speak to a member of our expert team about making your home smarter, make sure you email us or call us on 0345 505 1760.
All about unification
In order for your home to reach its full potential, your OS will support and control products across all categories; electronics, appliances and systems so all can work in unison. Control4 can control smart lighting, security cameras, a video door station, a smart thermostat, multi-room entertainment and home cinema solutions. These products are what Control4 offers clients but the OS can also control devices from most major manufacturers. It really does unify everything to make being Smart the most convenient way to live.
It also means that you can set up scenarios for regular events which take place in your home….
Use in real life
Control4 use the ‘dinner time’ example to illustrate just how intuitive your smart home can be.
“Let’s imagine most nights, you and your family sit down for dinner. You tap “Dinner Time” on your Control4 keypad in the kitchen, and the window shades roll down, the upstairs bedroom lights flash twice to let your family know dinner is ready, your favourite playlist comes on, and your smart pet-feeder gives the family dog his dinner so he’s not begging under the table for scraps.
Then imagine that after dinner, you move to the living room, fall asleep on the sofa, and forget to lock up. Well, you don’t have to worry, because at 10 pm, your front and back doors lock, the security system arms, the downstairs lights dim, and all the entertainment in the house turns off. All this is possible, without the headaches, thanks to a powerful smart home OS.”
The only thing it won’t do is put a blanket over you as you sleep.
