Every year during the CEDIA show, we launch a handful of new products and services to enthrall our dealers and customers. And this year we’re doing it like never before, announcing a slew of stuff that undoubtedly makes up our biggest launch to date. We’ve hand-picked a few of the most noteworthy to share with you here.
YOUR HOME, IN YOUR HANDS Home control like never before
You know what they say; the only thing that stays the same is that everything changes. A job changes with a new schedule, your tastes in music evolve, and the seasons come and go. Your smart home should keep up and adapt right along with you. Hands-on personalization has long been a top request from Control4 homeowners, so we are enthusiastic to introduce When >> Then automation programming for homeowners. It’s a simple way for you to personalize your home.* Now, you can easily change the brightness of a light or schedule a series of lights. Update the playlist that kicks on when you tap a certain keypad button. Even change the door chime to play a holiday jingle. It’s the convenience of do-it-yourself, but with the stability of a professionally installed smart home system. You’ll need a dealer to get your system updated, but then you’ll experience all of the fun of this phenomenal new capability—all on your own.
TRIAD: CHANGING THE RULES OF AUDIO The beauty in the unseen
What’s that you hear? That’s the collision of art, science, and precision. And boy, does it sound goooood!
