Automated Lighting

Get the perfect amount of light in your home, no matter where you are or what time of day it is. With Control4 Smart Lighting, you will not only be able to adjust the lighting with switches, dimmers, and customizable keypads throughout your home, but also through the app on your phone, tablet, or in-wall touchscreens. The Control4 app can also pair with your voice assistants, including Amazon Alexa and Google Home, to control the lighting in your home making it easier than ever to turn your lights on and off.

Security System

We understand that keeping your home and family safe is one of your top priorities and thanks to Control4 Smart Security, it’s easier than ever to ensure your doors are locked and that your home and family is protected.

Some of the features that the Control4 Smart Security system offer include:

  • Occupancy Simulation – Going beyond timers for your home’s lighting, occupancy simulation mimics your family’s behaviors and schedules but not only turning on lights but also turning on TVs and music to make it look like your home to any unwanted guests.
  • Real-Time Updates – Whether you’re at the office, running errands, or traveling, you’re able to get real-time updates straight through your home with the Control4 app. From being alerted if an alarm goes off or a sensor is tripped to moisture in your basements, easily confirm your security settings, arm/disarm your alarm, or open the garage straight through your phone.


Not only can your smart home keep you safe and make things more convenient, but it can also provide you, your family, and your guests with the perfect environment for entertainment. From movies, sports, and gaming, your home can be programmed to adjust lighting and temperature to react to your home theater, eliminate distractions, and allow you to easily control your entertainment system through one remote.
