As a smart home controls manufacturer, Control4 puts a priority on ease of use. Intuitive controls promote the use and exploration of a system’s features and functions. The release of OS3 enables smoother gesture response for a fluid and faster navigation of menus and controls. Buttons and touch areas are more prominent and more comfortable to read so you can control devices with fewer taps.
The upgrade also unlocks the ability to add the new Wi-Fi-connected Neeo remote. The handheld controller combines the flexibility of a super bright touch screen with just the right number of tactile buttons. Choose a streaming service from your favorites, lower the shades from the screen while the hard buttons are perfect for finding the right playback controls without having to look down.
Finding the room you want to control is now simpler than ever via the onscreen dashboard. You can set up favorite rooms or access other rooms to quickly view and utilize controls. Set up your most used icons with the familiar hold and drag to add, arrange, and remove. Check if the lights are off and the security system is set from your bedroom, or get an at-a-glance overview of the entire house from a single page.
Music and movies are a big part of enjoying your home, relaxing with the family in the media room, or adding energy to the house with multi-room audio. The OS3 Sessions section shows you what movie or music is playing in any room of the home, complete with artist, song, and file quality.
Whole-home audio means you control where the music is played. Set the mood in the den, raise the roof in the game room, or create a calming ambiance as you ready for bed. The Session tab allows you to add or remove rooms and adjust the volume from the simplified interfaces.
When you invest in an audiophile-level audio system from your home, you have the availability to play high-definition files natively. While the Control4 system already provides playback of FLAC files, it now supports MQA, Master Quality Authenticated format from your curated collection, or the new TIDAL Masters tab.
The Control4 upgrade to OS3 adds features and functions that raise the bar for home automation interfaces and control. Would you like to know more about how you can get the most out of a smart home? Give us a call at 512-519-9361 or chat with us online to have our experts work with you.
