Control4 gets it. Not only do they develop leading-edge technology for you, today’s tech-savvy homeowners, but they enable you to integrate your own upgrades. That’s smart! Actually, Control4 calls it a Smart Home Skill for Alexa and it’s available with their 4Sight subscription.
Control4 integrates Alexa voice control for your entire smart home, allowing voice-activated commands for every automated feature. What’s really cool is that current C4 clients can add Alexa-enabled devices to their system without needing their Electronics Systems Contractor (us) to perform a service call. You’ll be able to discover lights, lighting scenes and even your thermostat. You can then customize the name on your customer portal.
Set-up is a pretty straightforward process and they provide a step-by-step video to walk you through it. That video, by the way, is about 2 minutes long. You can integrate an Amazon Echo, Dot, Tap or Fire TV with Voice Remote into your Control4 system with an OS2.82 or newer. The video takes you step by step through connecting your Amazon device to your Amazon account, selecting the Control4 Smart Home skill feature, and you’re off! You’ll set your voice commands for Lighting and HVAC. For more sophisticated voice control of audio and video, well, we’re here to help.
Don’t forget to lock the door behind you – oh, wait – Alexa already did!
