In our latest series of blogs, we’ll be taking a look at the new Control4 Operating System, OS3. We’ll be asking questions like, what is a Smart home OS and how can it make your life easier?
Technology has always been in the home – at one point TV was the latest technology and now everyone has multiple screens of all sizes in most rooms of the house! Now however, technology is not used just for entertainment, it is helping make life more convenient. Whether it’s getting you up with your morning routine or ensuring your home is locked down and secure while you’re on holiday – smart home technology gives you peace of mind so you can focus on more important things.
Most of the smarthome gadgets people pick up are standalone items; they have their own app which you can download to your tablet or smartphone – but it doesn’t take long before you have a phone full of apps and spend more time searching for the right app than it’d take to get up and switch the lights out manually.
Bringing it all together
Without a central hub to bring everything together, it’s all just clever ‘stuff’. An operating system (OS) will enable you to integrate all of your smart gadgets into one user interface. If you currently have some smart gadgets set up individually, how often do they not quite work how you want them to? This is often because you might be giving its system mixed messages.
Consolidating all of your smart processes onto one, easy to use platform will stop this from happening and will enable you to get the most out of your smart gadgets.
Taking you to the next level
Using a smarthome OS will help you to take your home to the next level of convenience and automation. Imagine being able to go on holiday knowing that your home’s OS has learned your routine, it can control the lighting to make it look, from the outside, like your property is occupied, while you check your security cameras from the comfort of your sun lounger.
You will be able to run your house more energy efficiently by using fully customisable, timed and automated settings for lights, heating and hot water.
The new Control4 OS3 is fully customisable and unifies all of your devices and their apps onto one easy to use platform with a new intuitive interface to make set up and daily use easier than ever.
