Software apps extend Control4 functionality to virtually every screen in the home.
Las Vegas, NV – CES 2011 – January 6-9, 2011 – LVCC South 21407 – Control4, a leader in affordable IP-based home control systems, today introduces Control4® MyHome, a family of software apps that allows consumers to access and control lighting, temperature, music, movies, energy, security and more from a wide range of devices in Control4® enabled homes. Consumers need only purchase a Control4 MyHome license and download the application to their iPhone®, iPad®, PC or Mac® laptop, desktop computer, or tablet to enjoy all the features of their Control4 system.
“Consumers expect choice and convenience, so by offering our customers the ability to access and control their home automation system from nearly any screen in the house, we make it easier for them to integrate Control4 into their everyday lives,” said Control4 CEO Will West. “Now, whether you turn on your TV, pull out your phone, turn to a touch screen in the kitchen, or power on your laptop in the office, you’ll always be in control of your connected home.”
By turning existing smart phones, tablets and PCs into additional interfaces, Control4 MyHome offers homeowners an affordable way to access and manage their system, while offering integrators an additional platform to deliver greater flexibility and portability for home control to their customers. The Control4 user interface is consistent on every device. Just as dedicated touch screens are ideal in locations such as the kitchen or by the front door because they can’t wander away, Control4 MyHome is an affordable and flexible choice for the office, den and even garage.
In a Control4 enabled smart home, Control4 MyHome allows users to manage their system over any WiFi network, with unique security features that identify and authenticate their Control4 system to their iPhone, iPod touch®, iPad, PC or tablet.
The Control4 MyHome iPadTM app and Control4 MyHome iPhone/iPod Touch app are available on iTunes®. The Control4 MyHome PC/Tablet app will be available at www.control4.com. All apps require a one-time persistent family license or single license and a Control4 system. The Control4 MyHome family license allows consumers to download multiple apps for multiple devices in the home.
