What do you use your Control4 System for?
- Master Control my home theatre, TV and stereo.
- Lighting control on our main floor. The areas of the home we live in most have C4 light switches set at desired lighting levels. For example, we don’t need 100% brightness in our living room, so we set it at 68% to save energy. All rooms are set at lower levels and we still have ample light. Saving energy = saving money.
- When I pause a movie to go to the kitchen, the TV room lights automatically turn on and when I come back and hit play, the lights turn back down.
