The movie begins, the lights slowly dim, the temperature adjusts and the fireplace starts up. All at once, from just one press of a button, from one single remote. Yep, we can do that. And so much more.
Home automation and home theater go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you spend a lot of time watching television—whether it’s cable or satellite, movies or sports, comedy or drama—you’ll see a huge impact in the viewing experience once you throw Control4 automation in the mix.
Order from Chaos
You’ve probably got a television, an AV receiver, a DVD/Blu-ray player, and maybe a satellite receiver or cable tuner with a DVR. You may also have a video game console (or two) and a digital media player. Some of the media you watch may comes from networked hard drives, and some of it undoubtedly streams directly off the web. Most importantly, you might have a separate remote control for every single component, and a really big coffee table to hold them all.
By injecting control4 automation into a home theater installation, you will simplify everything, giving you the power to wrangle all of the audio and video sources with the press of a single Control4 remote button. Your authorized control4 dealer will configure everything so your controller “knows” how it’s all connected, allowing the system to manage all of the inputs and outputs. The only thing you have to do is bring the popcorn.
The total home theater experience
A home theater is more than just the sum of its components. Whether you’re optimizing for movies or sports or gaming, you’ll probably want to extend the experience to other features within the house. Do you want the lights to dim when the movie starts playing? Since home control extends to several other systems in your house, your dealer can program the lights to dim as the movie begins. And since your smart house “knows” when you’re watching something, it can respond appropriately when distractions intrude on your viewing experience. Pausing your movie when the doorbell chimes is a perfect example.
If you have even more complex needs, such as sending multiple video streams to several rooms in the house, allowing you to send a single satellite tuner or media player to every room. Your control4 system has the power and intelligence to handle just about anything you throw at it, thanks to the superior power and interoperability of control4 home automation. If you can dream it, your dealer can build it and you can enjoy it.
