Arm Locks and Sensors

Concerned about all your doors being locked when you go to bed at night? Use your Control4 app to check their status from bed and remotely lock any that haven’t been secured.

If you tend to leave the garage door open after heading out for work, you can set a timer to automatically lower the door after a specific time has elapsed.

Every second counts in an emergency, and sensors can trigger an immediate response that stops a burglar in their tracks. If a window breaks, that can instantly trigger the lights in the room and an audio message that you’ve notified police, creating a deterrent for any criminal activity. You’ll also receive an alert on your phone, so if you happen to be in an area of the house where you might not hear an intrusion, you’ll be aware that something is amiss.

 

Set A Perimeter with Smart Lighting

A well-lit property is less of a target, so outdoor lights are a crucial element in preventing trespassing. Control4 allows you to set up different scenes that keep your exterior areas illuminated, and motion sensors can turn on extra lights that inform the intruder they have been noticed.

Smart lighting can also be used to create the illusion of occupancy if you’re on vacation, and the details of the control system make it more dynamic, specific, and reliable than having your lights on timers.

Keep an Eye Out with Security Cameras

Being able to see the current state of your home provides the ultimate peace of mind. It’s simple to check surveillance cameras from the Control4 app, which allows you to smoothly switch between different areas of your home, both the interior and exterior. Security cameras can be outfitted with night vision capabilities, so you don’t lose a visual after the sun goes down.

Security cameras are especially helpful when you’re on vacation, and if you do receive an alert of an emergency, you’ll have instant access to what’s happening on your property.
