Those long, dark nights are drawing in, the days are getting shorter, and a brisk chill permeates the air, but you don’t have to let winter drag you down this year. With Control4 home automation, you and your loved ones can transform your home into a brightly-lit haven of happiness, warmth and security all winter long.
The best part? It does all that at the single click of a button.
Here, Pro Install AV, the leading Control4 installer in London, demonstrate just a few ways that this innovative smart home brand can help you create your very own winter wonderland.
A Home That’s Worth Waking Up For
Nobody likes getting out of bed on those cold, dark, winter mornings, but Control4 home automation makes the whole thing an experience you actually look forward to.
Combined with intelligent lighting and your multi-room AV installation, your system can be set to gently rouse you from your slumber each morning by slowly fading up the lights and playing the perfect piece of music – whether that’s a peaceful classical number to ease you into your day or a high-octane pop hit to get your adrenaline pumping.
As you move throughout your home, that music can follow you, with lights turning on and off automatically as you move from room to room into your kitchen, where your Control4 system has already kicked the coffee machine into action.
Can you think of anything more perfect?
Don’t worry, nor could we.
Complete Protection with Control4 Home Automation and Home Security
The short days and dark nights provide a perfect environment for opportunistic burglars to attempt a break-in of your home.
Thankfully, there’s an easy way to put your smart home to work in keeping those intruders out.
If you haven’t already, talk to your Control4 installer about combining a home automation installation with smart lighting and home security to protect your home and your loved ones throughout the winter months.
You could, for example, create a simulated occupancy scene to deter would-be intruders by creating the impression that somebody’s home. This can be programmed to load up at a set time each day, or even controlled remotely via your smartphone if you find yourself unexpectedly away from home longer than planned.
Speaking of remote control…
A good home security system integrated with Control4 will enable you to view your CCTV cameras anywhere, at any time, on any device, so that you’ve got the permanent peace of mind that comes from knowing that your property and your family are well-protected.
Step Out of the Cold Into the Warmest of Welcomes
It’s been a long day at the office. You’re tired, worn down, and ready to relax, but when you arrive home on that dreary winter’s evening, you’re greeted by a home which looks cold, dark, and uninviting.
This is the scene facing scores of hardworking people across the country at this time of year, but you don’t have to be one of them.
You can use your Control4 installation to program your outdoor lights so that they turn on automatically when your car comes up the drive, and even turn on your favourite piece of music or TV show the moment you step through your door, turning that drab-looking property into a warm, instantly-inviting home.
The Perfect Party at the Touch of a Button
Winter is a time for family get-togethers, elaborate celebrations, and intimate gatherings.
Whether it’s your nearest and dearest around the dining table on Christmas Day, or that big, New Year’s Eve bash that you invited the whole neighbourhood to, it goes without saying that you’ll want to create a memorable impression on your guests.
Control4 home automation makes that simple and effortless, with one-touch access to scores of pre-set party scenes.
You could create a stunning lighting scene for the hub of your New Year’s party and control the music via your smart home, playing at just right volume throughout your home via your multi-room AV installation.
You could play Christmas songs in the background whilst setting the perfect ambience for that close family gathering, or create any number of scenes to ensure your festive party is one they’ll be talking about for years to come.
