Morning Routine

After a long holiday break it can be difficult to get everyone back on schedule in the morning. Use your Control4 smart home to get your kids up quickly and on time without the hassle. Use your multi-room audio system to play wake-up songs at 6:30 a.m. to get the house moving. If you have young kids, choose a Disney playlist or if you have teenagers pick their favorite album. Each room can be customized so waking up is fun and not a hassle. Include motorized shades in your wake-up scene to let in the morning sun too. Add in house lights, video, and HVAC to create the right environment for starting your day right. If the kids aren’t ready to go to school by 7:30, hit an “alert” button on your phone to make their bedroom lights flash to let them know it’s almost time to leave for school. If you have Control4’s HD intercom system, you can also communicate with your kids upstairs and tell them they have five minutes to move it or else!
