Thank you to the good people over at Control 4 for providing the following information on smart homes and the operating systems designed to provide true smart technology. We’re proud to be an authorised Control 4 dealer on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria, Australia.
Homes of the future will only continue to become more and more connected; and with more connected “accessories” means more complexity for you, the homeowner, as you attempt to combine them together or manage them all from separate apps.
A smart home OS removes that complexity in a number of ways, with professional smart home design, installation, configuration, and management of all of your home technology needs.
Just as your laptop computer, tablets, and phones have operating systems, so too should your connected home. With an operating system at the helm, every interaction in your smart home is simply…better. Here are just a few reasons why.
SIMPLIFIES LIVING WITH TECHNOLOGY
A smart home OS is a platform that simplifies the technology you’ve accumulated in your home. It’s robust and intelligent enough to integrate up to thousands of smart devices, connecting and orchestrating virtually everything across your entire house (even into your outdoor spaces!)
is easy for everyone to use
Whether you’re interacting with your smart home using your phone, a touch screen, handheld remote, a keypad on the wall, or simply by voice, the interfaces and products that are tied into your smart home OS should be easy and natural for everyone in your family to use.
is built to be reliable
Just as any building requires a strong infrastructure for plumbing and electricity, your smart home should also be built with a durable foundation capable of handling the technology that is already in your home and anything you may add to it in the future; and it must do so reliably. For over 15 years, the Control4 OS has served as the smart home infrastructure for nearly 500,000 residences worldwide.
gives you freedom of choice
From shades to thermostats, gates to garage doors, entertainment to security, and almost anything in between, your smart home OS should enable connectivity with the devices, products, and systems that you use every day.
protects your privacy
Smart accessories can do some very cool things, but what’s happening behind the scenes with your information? As we accumulate more connected devices, privacy is of top concern. The data generated in your most personal space—your home—should always be protected. Not sold. Not shared. Your smart home OS should always respect your personal privacy.
FACILITATES PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
For many homeowners, installing and managing everything in the smart home is time consuming and complicated. Your smart home OS facilitates professional installation so you can a stronger, safer, and easier-to-manage smart home that’s personalized to you and designed by experts backed by extensive training and knowledge.
is designed for your life
No two families live the same way in their respective homes, so no two smart home should be carbon copies of one another, either. A smart home OS enables a connected experience that is personalized to your family’s needs, schedules, and activities, simplifying the way you live day-to-day in your unique spaces. It also allows you to make changes, all on your own, as those things change.
scales to meet your needs
A smart home OS allows you to start wherever it makes the most sense for your needs and budget—such as consolidating your family room entertainment—and then provides you with the ability to add more to your smart home as you desire. And as you bring in more third-party devices, a smart home OS ensures that those, too, can be added to your system.
