Control4

While we showcase many brands at Brisbane SmartHomes, our in-house experts prefer the intuitive design of Control4 over anything else, with over 7 years of experience with their software. With the recently released OS3 in full swing, there has never been a better time to upgrade your current home automation system or install your first one.

Along with the usual benefits of using an app to control your smart home, Control4 offers 4Sight, a yearly subscription giving you access to virtually unlimited personalisation of your smart home straight from your smart home. Create completely unique morning and evening routines for your family and personalise notifications from your home to alert you when something is not quite right.

Smart homes can be old homes

People building from the ground up aren't the only ones who get to enjoy the ease of controlling their entire house - the beauty of the Control4 system is that it doesn't require excessive planning, so if you have lived in your house for 30 years you can still turn it into a smart home with help from our experts. No matter the size, shape, or age of the house, we will help you spend less time worrying about locked doors and flooded basements and more time enjoying life with your family.

If you want to dip your toe into the world of smart homes without committing to automating your entire home, Control4 also allows you to start small and expand only when you're ready. Start by controlling all your entertainment needs with the universal remote and once you see how easy it is to automate, perhaps try installing some smart lights in the bedroom for a gentle wake-up or a door lock for some piece of mind.

Scared of commitment?

Some smart home systems require you to only buy automation products from that one company, but Control4 gives you the freedom to choose your own products as it connects with over 13000 devices from more than 300 brands. This means that if you already have a favourite sound system or smart lights set, you can easily integrate them with Control4 without disrupting your usual routine. Also, almost all smart devices come with their own apps or remotes so accessing your devices from one Control4 app or remote will cut clutter from your life. When integrating these apps into the one system, you can also combine their uses into an 'if this, then that' manner. For example, you can configure your system to turn off all lights and air conditioning when the front door is locked, saving you time in the morning and money throughout the day.

Fun for the whole family

With IOS and Android versions available, everyone can access the Control4 app to control the home. Yes, we mean everyone - the new OS3 interfaces use larger icons and buttons to make sure everyone from ages 4-400 can use the system with ease. Control4 has also made strides in accessibility for those who are autistic, disabled, elderly, or otherwise impaired, and you can find out more about this on our 'What do we do' page.
