When it comes to home automation, the first things that come to our mind are smart lights, smart locks and smart speakers such as Google Home or Amazon Echo. With these things being mainstream and easily available, they are also not too feature-packed. For example, you cannot control a door lock with Alexa, neither can you configure your motion detector to work with the Google Home device. These are surely useful, but they barely scratch the surface.
For a modern, high-end home that needs automation, the home should be able to do much more than just control fancy lights and play your favorite music via voice command, The home should be able to adjust the temperature of the air conditioner, or monitor your home network, able to play multiple audio devices at different rooms, provide video calling services across the house for seamless communications and so on.
And this is exactly what smart home systems like Control4 Smart Home OS does.
It is a new, but highly effective home OS that is integrated into almost every piece of technology and media peripherals across your home. They allow you to seamlessly connect your devices with one another without the need for separate smart devices such as a smart speaker. This is exactly what makes your home smart. Although your home may not get the level of smart as in Robert Downey Jr’s first movie as Iron Man, but it is nevertheless a novel and unique system.
