Get to Know Control4 OS 3 and How You Can Upgrade Your System Today
Since 2003, Control4 has been an innovating force in smart home automation. Their systems have always been intuitive, easy to use, and designed so that novice and experts alike can control their home environment effortlessly.
Smart home technology is moving ahead at a breakneck pace. Control4 understands that, and they have not stood still. They’ve listened to Control4 installers like GHT Group, their customers, and paid attention to the latest advances in the smart home world to build an even better version of the Control4 platform: OS 3.
In OS 3, Control4 made a huge leap forward to make its system even easier to use for homeowners like you. Over 1,000 enhancements have gone into the software to enable the ultimate smart home experience.
What do you need to know about OS 3 for the Control4 home automation setup at your Sandy Springs or Metro Atlanta property? Read on to learn more.
Better Everyday Interaction
Control4 has carefully evolved its user interface, taking the best of their systematic approach and marrying it with the latest interface features you know and love from the most innovative apps. Personalization is better than ever before. You can customize the interface to place your favorite rooms as favorites, in the same way you favorite your most-used contacts on your smartphone. All the things you access the most can be drag-and-drop arranged to your liking; whether it’s lights, audio and video entertainment, climate control, and anything else your Control4 home automation setup manages. Even the background wallpaper can be customized, including with a photo of your room for the ultimate in personalization.
Reimaging Your Entertainment Experience
Control of entertainment like whole home audio is more intuitive with Control4’s OS 3. At a glance, you can see album art, playback controls, volume sliders, and more. The experience is also consistent whether using a Control4 touchscreen or the app on your smartphone or tablet. You can also see what audio or video is playing easily on one screen, and adjust the volume or turn that zone off with a quick tap.
For the music enthusiast, Control4 has added MQA support to their multi-room audio systems. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) allows for streaming of high-resolution music from services like TIDAL, offering measurable improvement in sound quality.
If you use a handheld Control4 remote for your entertainment system, the interface has been optimized to make it faster to get to the content you want through the onscreen interface. But you still have access to other smart home features like lights and smart locks when you need them without pulling out your smartphone.
Understand and Control Your World
A quick look at the new Control4 OS 3 interface is all you need to know what's going on. Icons for lights are grayed out if lights are off, so you know the state of your devices. Smart locks show as unlocked or locked; there's no need to click to another screen to check. Your motorized shades show as open or closed, and you can check the temperature of your smart thermostat with a glance at your main screen. These small and large interface improvements all add up to a better smart home experience, just as you imagined it should be.
If this sounds like the smart home system you’ve always dreamed about at your Sandy Springs or Metro Atlanta home, GHT Group is ready to help. Whether you are an existing Control4 customer or want to enjoy the benefits of home automation with a new Control4 home automation setup, we can provide you with a newly installed Control4 OS 3 system.
