What Happens After Your Smart Home Installation?

Keep Your Technology Running Smoothly with Ongoing Service and Maintenance

Unlike many Control4 dealers in the Baton Rouge, LA area, we don't think our work is completed after installation. We’re service providers rather than simple installers, so customer support plays a central role in all of our projects.

Since we know technology requires regular upkeep to perform at its best, we offer service plans that help us stay on top of your system at all times. Never worry about being left helpless if your smart home technology isn't functioning correctly—even after hours or on the weekend.

Any of our clients can sign up to benefit from an easy-to-use service app, remote management and annual maintenance visits. Here are some of the outstanding features you’ll enjoy with our monthly service plans.

Stay Connected With Intercom Anywhere

Intercom Anywhere is Control4’s new product for helping homeowners monitor their property and communicate with different rooms. Your mobile device becomes part of your intercom system, so if someone arrives at your front door, you get an alert directly to your smartphone. From there, you’ll be able to see who is at the entrance through your video doorbell and communicate with them directly. If it’s a delivery person with a package, you can unlock the door remotely so they can make a secure drop-off. Intercom Anywhere also allows you to interact with people inside your home. If your kids leave their phones in their bedrooms while they’re in the living room, you can call them through your Intercom Anywhere system to get in touch quickly.

Expand Your Music Services

With a Control4-enabled multi-room music system, you’re able to access a wide variety of streaming music services and play them anywhere in your home. The latest Control4 OS 2.10.4 features an Add Music driver that allows you to add supported native streaming services to your Control4 system from your touchscreen remote or app without needing to schedule an appointment. These native streaming services now include Amazon Music, which is compatible with both Amazing Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions, and Deezer HiFi, which delivers high-fidelity music in a lossless FLAC format.

Upgrade Your Home Network

Your smart home automation system needs a robust network to function properly. Every connected device adds more strain to your network, and consumer-grade networks aren’t designed to meet the needs of a comprehensive Control4 system. That’s why Control4 dealers are trained and tested on essential networking standards with the Pakedge Certified Network Administrator curriculum, which is designed to give professionals the tools and knowledge to provide you with the strongest, most secure network. You don't want to have a support team coming to your home for every small networking issue you might have, and Pakedge's BakPak Remote Management allows Control4 professionals to monitor your network and fix common problems without having to send a truck out.

One Company for All Your Technology

When you’re working with an expansive smart home control system, you have to deal with many different devices that all have their own specific installation and operating needs. The experts at Acadian have the knowledge and expertise to design, install, program, and maintain all the individual components of an extensive smart home system, saving you from having to reach out to different companies for your smart lighting, motorized shades, and media distribution.

We know which technologies will integrate best with the Control4 system, and we'll design a smart home system that delivers the optimal performance of both individual components and the larger network. This means installing an audio system that works with the unique acoustics of each space to provide maximum sound coverage. Installing lights and motorized shades and programming specific scenes that adjust both technologies to change the ambiance of a room with the push of a button is easy. Want to add a security system to your home? We can set up surveillance cameras, electronic locks, and sensors that protect your family and property.

 

Strengthen and Secure Your Home Network

A key element of your Control4 system is your home network, and without a powerful Internet connection, your automated technology isn't going to operate as smoothly as it should. We evaluate the power of your network and show you just how much stress it is under. With all of your home's smart technology, plus all of the information transmitted to and from your family's personal devices like computers, smartphones, and tablets you may not know your system’s capabilities.

If your network can't handle the pressure, we'll give it a performance boost as well as offer wireless solutions so that you get Wi-Fi everywhere you need it in your home. Perhaps most importantly, we'll improve the security of your network so that all of those device connections don't leave your information vulnerable to cyber-criminals.

Fortify Your Home with Lock and Sensor Control
The bigger the home, the more potential weak spots in security, and it can be difficult to make sure you’ve locked every door before leaving the house. Control4 allows you to access all the locks and sensors on your property, and if you’ve accidentally left a door unlocked, all it takes is a tap to lock it again. Do you tend to leave your garage door open? A Control4 system can be programmed to shut it automatically if it’s lifted for an extended period, and that time frame is easy to change if you need to keep the door up longer. Check out the video below to see just how simple it is to keep track of locks and sensors with Control 4.

 


 
Automatically Activate Lights and Sound to Ward Off Intruders
The quickest way to get a burglar off your property is to let them know they can be seen, and sensors around the home can turn on lights and sound if they detect a human intruder. Flashing lights and a message warning that you’ve contacted the authorities will stop the trespasser before they reach your door. Remember the scene in Home Alone when Kevin sets up an elaborate fake party in his house to fool the burglars? It’s possible to achieve the same effect with far less effort thanks to home automation, and Control4 can be programmed with a lighting scene that makes your home appear occupied if you're away on vacation. You could even incorporate audio to sell the illusion further.

Keep an Eye on Your Property with Surveillance Cameras
Seeing real-time footage of your property is the best way to monitor it, and setting up security cameras lets you know if there are any unwanted visitors on the property. Because privacy is an increasingly important concern, Acadian can also install a trustworthy Firewall to ensure that no one has access to this network except for authorized users. Cameras can be installed both inside and outside your home, and the video below showcases how Control4 serves as a central hub to navigate each different surveillance sector.

 


 
These are just a few of the many features Control4 offers to enrich your Lafayette smart home, and you can contact Acadian Home Entertainment to learn more about their services from Louisiana’s most acclaimed Control4 dealer.
