Control4 today announced the availability of Smart Home OS 3, the latest in their lineup of smart home solutions. Designed to unify connected devices across the home, Smart Home OS 3 promises the utmost level of control, personalization, and accessibility across a wide range of categories. Control4 OS 3 is capable of supporting more than 13,500 third-party devices and 7,500 Control4 SDDP-embedded products meaning it’s prepared to meet the growing, worldwide demand for connected devices in the home.
“The Control4 Smart Home OS is designed to remove complexity,” said Control4 Senior Vice President of Products and Services Charlie Kindel. “Every home is a mix of products from a variety of companies, a Smart Home OS embraces this reality, providing broad choice rather than creating a collection of tiny walled gardens that limit homeowners.”
Through intuitive controls, users will be able to easily access the many features of their home including lighting, music, video, security, comfort and more in a single platform. For even greater streamlined control, homeowners can set a “room screen” for each area of the home compiled of “favorites,” that appear as a homepage. From there, users can check the status of the lights, locks, blinds, etc. at a glance, and change the music, lock the doors, close the blinds, and more with a single tap.
While the Smart Home OS 3 will need to be installed by an experienced professional, Control4 encourages users to take an active role in how the system operates. Beyond the personalization that the “favorites” allow, homeowners can completely tailor the Smart Home OS 3 to meet their everyday needs. They can set schedules, create home scenes, and automate devices depending on what a typical day involves.
“There is a delight—almost a sense of magic—when technology comes together and genuinely enhances our lives,” added Kindel. “And right now, only Control4 SmartHome OS 3 can deliver on that promise for the home.”
Control4 Smart Home OS 3 is available now through Control4 Authorized Dealers. For those looking to try it out first, Control4 is holding a hands-on, C4Yourself Day event at Certified Showrooms across the globe on June 13.
