what is a smart home

With the benefits of technology in the home becoming virtually endless, smart home systems are changing the way we live – for the better. From assisting you in cooking a meal for the family to answering the door, day to day activities around the house are becoming much more fun and easier to perform for every homeowner.

So, what is a Smart Home OS?

A smart home OS (operating system), such as the Control4 Smart Home OS, is designed to combine hundreds of connected devices across the home and control them all from one platform. Owning an OS such as this creates an intelligent household by integrating most devices within the home, such as electronics, appliances, and systems. These range from smart lighting, security cameras, smart thermostat, universal remotes and more.

All of these devices are unified and arranged by the Control4 smart home OS, however, also works alongside other products too. A significant feature of the Control4 Smart Home is that it embraces every home, as it is compatible with over 13,500 third-party products, including pool controls, sprinkler systems, smart locks, and more.

Another advantage of owning a smart home OS system is that they are designed so you can personalise your experience. This allows homeowners to have their own custom control to suit their own personal requirements, whilst receiving professional support when needed, as well as having easier controls and features that are most important to you.

For example, with your own customised settings, you can set favourite rooms, improve your home security system and door locks to ensure that your home is always secure. Control4 provides you with a variety of ways to command your home.
