You’re in Control with Control4 & Alexa

You’re in Control with Control4 & Alexa

Control4 really gets it.  Not only do they develop leading-edge technology for you, today’s tech-savvy homeowner, but they enable you to integrate your own voice-activated upgrades. Now that’s smart! Actually, Control4 calls it a Smart Home Skill for Alexa and it’s offered through their 4Sight subscription. 

 

Control4 integrates Alexa voice control for your entire home, allowing voice-activated commands for every automated feature. What’s really amazing is that current C4 clients can add Alexa-enabled devices to their smart home without needing us, their Electronics Systems Contractor, to perform a service call. You’ll be able to discover lights and lighting scenes as well as your thermostat. You can then customize the name on your customer portal. 

Set-up is a simple process and they provide a step-by-step video to walk you through it.  The video, by the way, is only about 2 minutes long. It’s really that easy! You can integrate an Amazon Echo, Tap, Dot or Fire TV with Voice Remote into your C4 OS2.82 or newer system.  The video takes you through connecting your Amazon device to your Amazon account, selecting the Control4 Smart Home skill feature, and then on to setting up your voice commands for Lighting and HVAC!  For more sophisticated voice control of audio and video, well, we’re here to help with that.   

And that’s it! Now, don’t forget to lock the door behind you – oh, wait – Alexa already did! Give us a call today to get started! New to Control4? Call us to learn more about making your home smarter!
