It doesn't have to be complicated.
You just want your favorite movie app to start up when you go your home theater, right?
Or maybe you want a button to turn on the TV, and launch the Peloton app in your exercise room?
Press one button on the wall keypad in your Smart Home, and have your custom cinema come to life - the lights are at the perfect level, everything turns on, and your favorite application opens up on the screen.
But wait, I need to adjust the volume, or pause the show...my old remote would get out-of-sync with what was on home theater screen, or I'd use the wrong remote..
Gone are the days of trying to make sure the remote is in sync with what you've done in the room when you have a Control4 Smart Home. You turned on the theater from your phone, your iPad, or the wall button. Pick up the remote, and through Control4 smart home automation it already knows what you've done. Just press that pause button, it already knows you're watching Netflix on the Roku in your custom cinema.
The show is over, now what?
One button can shut down the home theater, turn on the overhead lights for a few minutes for you to clean up that popcorn mess, and then your Smart Home auto-magically shuts everything down in your custom cinema without you having to worry about anything other than the popcorn in your hand.
No more asking the last one there to turn out the lights in your theater...that's what Control4 can do for you.
If you can operate a light switch, you can turn on your custom home theater and launch Hulu.
No more getting calls from the babysitter asking how to turn on a movie, and if they can't figure out the wall switch, you can always pull out your phone and turn it on remotely while you stay comfortably at that restaurant dinner table enjoying date night.
Smart Homes can be easy. Press that Hulu button, and on turns everything that you need to watch Hulu, including the TV and the Hulu App.
With a Smart Home, there's no need to have a PhD for your home theater.
With a Control4 Smart Home, there's no more learning a different system for each new thing.
What you see on a touchscreen, your phone, the remote, and the TV screen are all the same, consistent interface.
