One App to Rule Them All

Get Rid of App Clutter with a Smart Home System

One App to Rule Them All

It seems like everyone keeps saying, “there’s an app for that.” But if you continue to add apps to your smartphone, not only will you overload your phone, but you’ll also get app clutter. When it comes time to clean out the closet so to speak, you have to assess which ones you actually use on a daily basis and which ones you can do without.

DIY smart homes create app clutter because each time you buy a new device you have to download the app onto your phone. Buy a Sonos speaker for your Charlotte, NC property? You have to use the app to stream music wirelessly. Have a Nest thermostat? You have to open the app every time you want to change the temperature from afar. 

But what if you could simply open one app and use it to control your Sonos speaker, Nest thermostat, Lutron lights and shades and so much more? The answer is integration. The word may sound very lofty and you may even be reaching for a dictionary right now, but it means that you are connecting separate systems into one unified system. With smart home automation you can control every separate device with just one user interface. 

One amazing benefit of working with a Control4 dealer like us, is that you don’t have to get rid of the brands you know and love. We can connect them together and put them under the Control4 app. 

One App, One Solution

The Control4 App acts as your smart home command center and allows you to control all of your home’s features, including: lighting, shading, security, audio, video, climate control, pool/spa settings, and more. You can download the app onto your iPhone or Android phone, tablet, or even a smartwatch.

Control4 offers a subscription service called 4Sight that allows you to control your smart home from any location around the world. You also get to enjoy alerts like, “garage door is open” or “water leak detected.” The Internet connection is also secure, so you don’t have to worry about anyone hacking into your system. 4Sight uses secure communication protocols and encryption used by financial institutions to ensure a safe and secure connection to your smart home.
