Insider Knowledge from an Expert Control4 Installer

If you’re the type of person that does their research when looking to make a major purchase, you know how difficult it can be to compare similar products. The marketing materials often check off all the boxes, and you may wonder what the difference is between products A and B. 

But products and solutions have differences, and sometimes you have to dig a little bit to unearth them. Take cars, for example. Maybe you’re comparing two SUVs, and they’re about the same size, inside and out, have 300 horsepower engines, and a 10-inch infotainment screen. They have the same options, checking all the boxes you want. So how do you compare them? It’s going to come down to the way they drive, how that infotainment works on the screen, how you like the seat comfort, and many other factors. 

When it comes to smart home automation, sometimes you can’t really test-drive before you buy. And most of these systems will have very similar features and do the same things. So how can you tell the difference? As a premier Control4 installer, we’re partial to Control4 and its approach to home automation. And we’re going to tell you about three things that make Control4 stand out from other solutions, so you can make an informed decision for your smart Watercolor, FL smart home. Ready? Stay with us.

Get Home Automation Tailored for You

The concept of smart home control and automation sounds great to you. We talk about every aspect of it on these blog pages, from AV systems to lighting to shading and everything else. But the process of starting might seem a little daunting; trying to figure out what you want and need. 

When you buy a car, do you spring for the loaded model that has absolutely everything? If you do, you won't suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) – you’ve got it all. That’s great, but most auto manufacturers offer different trim levels or a multitude of a-la-carte options to customize your vehicle the way you want it. That way, you get what you want and don’t pay for what you don’t need. 

When it comes to smart home design and installation, that’s what an expert Control4 installer like GHT Group can offer you – a system specifically tailored for your Duluth, GA home and your needs. Read on to see how working with a Control4 dealer gets you all the smart home you need and want – and not what you don’t.

How a Control4 Installation Enhances Wellness

Have we gone off the deep end? We are now claiming that home automation can improve wellness? Bear with us; it's not as wild as it seems. First, home automation is a great convenience – and luxury – and if that alone reduces stress, that's an improvement in your wellness.

Think about it. If your home automation system can inform you that you left the garage door open because it knows you're not at home, you can close it with a tap on a screen or have it do so automatically after a few minutes. If you're on vacation and you have a video doorbell and smart security cameras, you can check in on your house at any time and be notified of any unusual activity. Peace of mind and reduced anxiety is a boon for wellness too.

But even beyond the convenience and security aspects, comprehensive smart home systems like Control4 can create a better atmosphere for wellness too. As a Control4 installer in Cumming and Metro Atlanta, we have seen (and helped create) many ways clients have used their smart home features to improve fitness, mood, and relaxation for a healthier atmosphere. Keep reading for some of the best ideas!

Get Home Automation with Professional Results

Let’s face it, anyone can have some level of home automation and smart control these days. Hundreds of smart devices are available at the click of an Amazon Buy button, at Home Depot, or Best Buy. You can be your own integrator, programmer, and head debugger and install a surprisingly extensive smart home system yourself. 

Perhaps you're not interested in integrating your own system or trying to figure out why your outside lights didn't turn on at sunset. If you’re a busy professional, your time away from work is likely far more valuable than debugging your smart home devices. We're not going to tell you hiring a professional for your smart home installation will be less expensive – when is it ever? But we can tell you what you will get with a professionally installed smart home system like Control4, and how a Control4 installer like GHT Group, Atlanta's leading home technology integrator, can ensure you don't spend your free time as your home's IT person.
