How to control your home using an iPad or iPhone?
This month I would like to touch upon the exciting ways in which mobile phone technology is impacting home automation and smart home systems. With an estimated 1 in 5 people in the UK now a proud owner of a Smartphone and with the eminent launch of the iPad2 this month, there is no escaping the fact that mobile devices now have a major influence on social culture in the home.
This growth in digital mobile technology has lead to smart electronics playing a central role in not our daily lives but it can now be used as a key component in home automation systems. But how do we get all of this wonderful technology to work together?
Control4 has the mastermind solution. Control4 makes it possible for virtually any appliance or device in your home to intelligently communicate with another. From locks to lights, doors to drapes and TVs to security cameras, all can be controlled with a click of a button from anywhere in the world! It’s not uncommon for the typical home to have a remote control for pretty much everything! Your TV, DVD, Games Console, Stereo, Bluray Player, Blinds and Sky Box all come with their own remote controls, but with Control4 all of your household devices can be controlled on one “master remote” or through user-friendly hardware including an iPhone or an iPad. With control4 it’s easy to create the perfect movie ambiance in one touch, tell your thermostat what to do from Thailand, manage music in multiple rooms and even send a text message to your phone when your children come home from school. Control4 gives you flexible solutions to design the home automation system of your dreams on a very real budget.
