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.
