Safety and Security
A little peace of mind goes a long way. That’s why Control4 makes it easy for you to enhance the safety and security of your home in a number of ways. More than just a traditional security system, Control4 can make sure that lights are turned on when you’re on your way home or away on vacation, monitors motion sensors and IP cameras, alerts you if garage doors have been left open and even lets you keep track of your kids so you can make sure they’re where they’re supposed to be, when they’re supposed to be there. Here are just a few ways you can use Control4 to make sure your family is safe and sound.
Never come home to a dark house again with Control4.
When your garage door or front door opens, your home will automatically turn on key interior lights or light up the walkway to your door. As you move from room to room, motion sensor can turn the lights on and off for you…ideal if you’re carrying a sleepy child to bed or have an armful of groceries.
Keep an eye on your home, no matter where you are with Control4.
Have you ever arrived at work and wondered if you left the garage door open? With Control4, you can receive an email alert letting you know that it’s open. Just access your home system over the Internet and you can close the garage door remotely, protecting your home and your family.

If you have to work out of the home, you can still check on the kids. Control4 can send you an email alert if the door hasn’t opened when the kids usually get home from school so you can check and make sure they’re OK. You can also set certain functions to allow the kids limited or no access to the TV or PS3 so they can focus on their homework or chores. And you can have the system send you an alert if a medicine or liquor cabinet has been opened while you’re away.
Even when the kids are home but out of sight in the yard, the theater or the playroom, you can keep an eye on them with Control4. Use IP cameras, motion sensors and Announcement Agents to keep an eye on the kids, know immediately if they’re leaving the yard, and communicate with them. Time for dinner? Simply push one button and you can turn off TVs, computers and stereos – and send them a voice message that it’s time to come to the table.
Many of us have aging parents and we’d like to keep them in their homes as long as possible. But we also want to make sure that they are safe. With Control4, you can receive alerts if a motion sensor doesn’t activate in the morning, or use a bed sensor to ensure that your parents are up and at ‘em. You can also use a Control4 system with IP cameras to literally keep an eye on them, or have it interact with their security system to make sure everything is locked up at night. Control4 partners also provide elder-care specific features including interactive communication via email and instant messaging that is easy to learn and use, further helping you keep in touch no matter where you are.
