Spring cleaning is about more than just clearing out the garage or dusting the nooks and crannies you’ve neglected for the past several months. It’s about starting anew and re-organizing your home in a way that reflects a fresh outlook on life. This impending season is your opportunity to take everything in your home and align them with your goals. What better way to do some spring cleaning than with Control4 home automation?
Organize and Consolidate Your Media Collection
Let’s start by cleaning one of the most used rooms in your house – your home theater!
Syncing up your media player with your home automation system adds another level of convenience to your entertainment choices. It also consolidates and organizes things in your home theater and throughout your entire house.
For example, instead of multiple removes for your DVD/Blu-ray player, TV, and sound system, control all of your devices and more with a Control4 universal remote. With this remote, you can control your entire home automation system, from lighting to security with it as well. When you put all of your audio/video equipment on the Control4 platform, you can tuck away all of those black boxes into a closet or in the basement so they’re out of sight and out of mind, while still having complete control over it all.
Reducing your arsenal of remotes down to one help cut the clutter, but Control4 can optimize your entertainment system even further. For example, it’s easy to store all your movies and music on your media player, so you can access your entire entertainment collection without having to get up from your couch. You can also stream movies and music using one of many streaming services, all integrated seamlessly into Control4’s easy-to-use interface.
Spring is the perfect time to take care of a few home maintenance tasks that only need to be done once or twice a year, but are easy to forget! With your Control4 systems, you can set email or text alerts, or whole-home audio announcements, to let you know when it’s time to take care of these crucial maintenance tasks.
For example, set alerts to remind you when it’s time to:
- Change the HVAC/central vac filter
- Change batteries in the smoke/carbon monoxide detectors
- Inspect the furnace
- Clean the gutters
- Any other spring cleaning/maintenance task you can think of
Customize Your Home Automation System for the Coming Year
Spring cleaning is as much about re-organizing than it is about cleaning; why not take this opportunity to adjust and customize your Control4 system?
If you’ve been living with Control4 for a while now, you probably have a few ideas about how it can work even better for you. Here are a few ways you can customize your Control4 experience:
- Create a new lighting scene, or edit an existing one, directly from your Control4 Touch Screen
- Set up “favorites” on your Control4 interface
- Personalize your listening experience
- Adjust your video intercom system
