Lighting, Security, Climate Control – all 100% remotely accessible!

For many people, Home Automation (also referred to as Home Control or a Smart Home) is considered too expensive, too complicated, or an unnecessary luxury. Canaan Technology can change your perception pretty quickly with a demo of a Control4 Home Automation System.

Control4 offers the ultimate home automation solution by making the products and systems you already have and use everyday, work together. By integrating everything from lighting control, music, home theater, climate control, security—even iPads, iPhones and Android smartphones and tablets—a smart house by Control4 creates personalized experiences that enhance your life and provide added comfort, savings, convenience, and peace of mind.

Start small by automating just your family room or home theater. Or go big with whole-home automation. Control4 is built to grow as you go. No matter what the application, the experience is unforgettable and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without home automation.

A Control4 Home Automation System can include any of the following:

  • Lighting Control

    If you thought of one “system” in your home utilized every day, by every member of your family and guests, it would be lighting. Control4 lighting can transform your old school toggle switches to a smart lighting system, giving you the ability to control any light switch from anywhere in your home and remotely using an intuitive iPad or iPhone interface.

  • Climate Control

    There’s one predictable aspect of weather — it’s unpredictable. With Control4 thermostats, you can change the temperature on one or all your thermostats from the comfort of your bed, while relaxing on the couch, or remotely from anywhere in the world, with the same intuitive iPad or iPhone interface as Lighting Control.

  • Audio/Video

    Audio and Video has been around a long time, but it’s evident the ability to reliably control which audio source plays in which room, and predictably change channels on your television, has evolved slowly.
    With Control4 Home Automation, everything is controlled via a simple to use remote control which is custom programmed for you, and immune from annoyances like line of sight, cabinet doors that are closed, and equipment that doesn’t know if it’s on, off, or locked up.

  • Security and Surveillance (Cameras)

    Security systems with cameras provides piece of mind, but they do not natively communicate with each other, making it difficult, if at all possible, to independently verify the alarm condition.
    Control4 can bridge the two systems together and provide the ability for you to be alerted when an alarm condition occurs, receive streaming video of the area in which the alarm occured, and reset or disable the alarm system.

Control4 is designed to be modular – if you’re not ready to automate your entire home, you can start just a room, or a single sub-system (lighting, climate, security, audio/video).
