The recent news that Control4 might be acquired by SnapAV later this year, hasn’t dampened the company’s enthusiasm about its third-annual C4Yourself Day worldwide on June 13 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time. Homeowners, architects, builders, and design professionals are invited to get hands-on with the latest smart home features in beautifully designed, at-home settings, at their nearest Control4 Certified Showroom location in 85 cities across the globe.
Homeowners may be familiar with single-purpose connected accessories, such as smart lightbulbs, door locks, speakers, sensors, cameras, etc., with separate apps for each device, but they need an introduction to the professionally installed system. To understand the value of home technology, Brad Russell, research director, connected home at Parks Associates, explained: “Consumers need to experience them ‘out of the box’ and in real-life settings.” C4Yourself Day is the opportunity for homeowners, architects, designers, and builders to have their eyes opened to the possibilities of a singular system for all devices.
Each hosting Control4 Certified Showroom Dealer can demonstrate the integrated smart home such as scenes that lock down the house, transform the kitchen from cooking to dining mode, and set the scene to binge watch the latest Netflix special. In at-home environments, including a mock living room, kitchen, or even backyard, attendees can interact with handheld remotes, touch screens, the Control4 App, keypads, and more, to envision how their (or their client’s) favorite smart home experiences can be elevated and seamlessly united into one design-friendly system.
The demo experiences in each Certified Showroom include key features such as smart lighting and shading, multi-room audio, security, and more, and are constantly updated with the latest smart devices, including Control4 Intercom Anywhere. Control4 Dealers also customize and update their demos based on popular experiences, so that families can try out features that support aging-in-place, designers can toggle between lighting and shading scenes, homeowners in Southern states can experience pool and spa control features, and those in snowy regions can try out heating controls for a ski lodge.
“C4Yourself Day is an opportunity for dealers to show that the smart home can juggle more than one feature at a time. The events highlight the value of a customized, professionally-installed system for homeowners looking for a simplified living room, to an entire smart house,” said Control4 CEO and Chairman Martin Plaehn. “The growth in the number of our Certified Showroom dealers proves that there is nothing like a hands-on experience to inspire homeowners and the design community for an upgraded smart home.”
