Interfaces That Fit You
Any smart home interface must be intuitive for your experience to be a positive one. Navigating the graphical user interface should be instinctual, encouraging further use and continued exploration of its features and functions.
Control4’s highly praised release of OS 3 enables fluid menus, smoother gesture responses, as well as better placement of contextual tools to make everything a naturally relaxing experience. The screens are easier to read with more prominent buttons and increased touch areas, allowing you access to the actions you desire with fewer taps.
While the glossy ease of touch screens offer a sensual presentation, they can often be more distracting than helpful. For example, when you want to raise the volume or lower the shades, you have to look away from the show or your task at hand. However, the Wi-Fi-connected Neeo handheld remote by Control4 offers just the right mix of an interactive screen and tactile buttons. Choose the action you want without having to look down.
Voice control of your home was the long dream of science fiction writers and enthusiastic futurists. Bell Labs produced the first working examples, demonstrating its “Audrey” in 1952 and “ShoeBox” unit at the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Since then, we’ve come a long way, with interactive speakers becoming nearly ubiquitous.
Control4 embraced voice control early on, and in 2021, it entered an exclusive partnership with Josh.ai, the premier voice interface. Rather than make you utter awkward phrases or technobabble, the Josh.ai system allows you to speak with your natural voice and sentences. Now, you can raise the kitchen lights without taking your hands out of the dough or initiate a sequence of events or scenes to occur by simply saying ‘Good Morning.’
A smart home furnishes you with the convenience and luxury of a house that not only fits but responds to your lifestyle. Control4 makes it easier to manage your whole home.

Discover How Control4 adds luxury and convenience while bringing balance to your life.
When it comes to home automation, we often focus on practical experiences like a home theater or high-end audio. While these elements are essential and immersive, it is the ability to simplify your home and lifestyle that has the most impact.
A Control4 smart home is premised on the idea that the little things that bring us comfort are just as important. A space that fosters balance, wellness, and a more relaxed state of mind allows you to live brilliantly.

Lighting That Inspires
The look of your home is important. The way the rooms flow together and the decor all influence your state of mind. The lighting system you use has a dramatic effect on your well-being too. Control4 lighting gives you the power to create the right ambiance, set the mood, or add a touch of the holidays to the whole home.
Keeping the inside environment just right requires a control system that interprets sensor readings to adjust the illumination throughout the day automatically. A home that allows you to transform your spaces not only lets you focus on being creative but also saves energy, relieves stress, and improves your mood.
Preservation And Protection The light streaming through your windows adds vibrancy the human body craves. Natural sunlight stimulates the production of hormones and vitamins, which make you more energized. Still, just as we can become sunburned or sick from too much direct sun exposure, so too your home needs to be protected.
When connected to elegant keypads or the Control4 automation system, motorized blinds move to let in just the right amount of light. With the sunlight filtered through UV-resistant materials, your fine artwork, rugs, and furniture are protected from fading, burns, and discoloration.
Your home should be a sanctuary for mind and body, a place where you dictate who can see in and when. Smart window treatments give you the power to set the right level of privacy, lowering when you start a movie or settle in for a good night's sleep.
Invigorate The SensesYour luxury home offers many conveniences, taking care of daily routines and ensuring your comfort. After a day of hard work, a spa transports you into another realm, one where you are surrounded by soothing sounds and water that melts away the stress.
With a simple swipe of a touch panel or with your voice, fill the room with mellow music, start the hot tub, and set the perfect light color. As you immerse yourself into the warm water, adjust the jets to massage sore muscles and bring your mind into a calmer and quieter space.
Your Choice, Your LifestyleA Control4 home keeps you informed, comfortable, and protected. Are you ready to enhance your lifestyle? Start the conversion by calling us at (213) 232-4702 or fill out our contact form to start the conversation!
Discover How Your Home Can Become The Ultimate Movie House
Movies have been a global cultural force for over 150 years; even in today’s streaming world of instant access and binge-watching, we are drawn to the medium like nothing else. The famed director Federico Fellini, whose distinctive style still inspires filmmakers today, summed it up this way:
"Talking about dreams is like talking about movies since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It's a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something as in a dream”.
Film reaches our deepest psychology, altering the sense of time, space, and perspective. A private home theater should enhance your viewing into an immersive experience with the highest quality in sound and vision.
Are you intrigued by the possibilities in your Los Angeles area luxury smart home? Then Continue reading below to discover more.
Whether you prefer the high drama of Hollywood’s golden age or the frenetic action of the latest superhero story, part of the pleasure is absorbing the emotional intricacies. The quality of the image plays a vital role in transporting you into Fellini’s ‘real cinema.’ The stunning quality and resolution of 4K and 8K definitions blur the lines between fantasy and reality, adding significance to ‘every object and every light.’
The projectors deliver more than brighter and sharper video; the systems utilize intuitive technologies that understand the human eye and your brain’s cognitive processing of what's on the screen. The result is an unfolding story that produces a true-to-life depth of field, infinite colors, and blur-free motion. Now, you can watch films in the way the cinematographers intended in full widescreen dimensions, matching and often exceeding the quality of high-end multiplexes.
Excite Your Ears
Traditional surround sound brings you closer to the action and connects you more intimately with the characters. While this standard format is effective, its ability to truly move you is limited by the space you occupy. Dolby Atmos eliminates discrete channels of audio; instead, it crafts a multidimensional soundscape that not only encircles you but adds distinct elements of height and depth.
Atmos does not reproduce the audio in terms of channels or speakers but as a free-floating object that is manipulated at will. The process allows filmmakers to dispense with assigning a voice to the left rear speaker; instead, it can be seamlessly placed three feet to your left side and four feet above you. Now, you are right in the cockpit of an X-Wing fighter or sitting between Robbie Robertson and Rick Danko during The Last Waltz.
When you think of a home theater, the standard image is of a lush and specialized room, but movies can be enjoyed with similar expectations indoors or outside. The magic of watching under the stars is one of the reasons driving a revival of drive-ins and films in the park.
While the vast open spaces would swallow up a standard indoor display, outdoor monitors excel - generating nearly six times the brightness and color saturation. You can see clearly with ultra-high-definition video whether watching in the full afternoon sun or a moonless evening. The weatherproof housings and electronics withstand all that the elements can throw at them, providing years of sharp imagery and audiophile-quality sound.

The way you illuminate your home alters your perceptions and improves your well-being.
How you light your Los Angeles, CA smart home influences not just the look of your rooms, but it can also affect the quality of your health and happiness. Traditional installations treat the illumination of your home from a limited perspective; fixtures are on or off and purposed to guide you through the dark.
However, innovative lighting control has the power to change your mood, add ambiance, and enhance the decor at the touch of a button. Personalizing your home’s appearance with systems that respond to your desires and maximize the use of natural daylight is a true definition of luxury living.
If you are looking for a better way to brighten the way you live, continue reading below.
Light Up Your Life
Light, especially from the sun, moves you in obvious and subtle ways, changing your perspective and even affecting your general well-being. Human biology has been shaped by the daily cycle of the sun’s path across the sky; it dictates our energy levels, ability to focus, and sense of vigor. The UV rays stimulate the production of serotonin, a hormone tied to joy and the building of neural pathways, and Vitamin D, an essential element for health and cellular growth.
Ketra, acquired by Lutron in 2018, takes a different approach to home illumination, believing in a balance between “lighting wellness” and the demands of our modern world. The system maximizes the use of sunlight in your home, accenting as needed with patented LED lamps that match the color and brightness of the outside.
Lighting is also about creating a sense of drama and liveliness in a room; Ketra’s Vibrancy transforms a space in ways other fixtures cannot. The exclusive tunable lighting tool offers the unique ability to tweak individual colors to create a truly stunning illumination. So whether you are highlighting artwork in the den or crafting the perfect look for the home theater, you can mix up the colors and brightness any way you want.
The look of your home, with its sweeping architectural lines and decor, is the result of your vision. The smart lighting control system should reflect the same attention to aesthetic detail – rather than distract, it should compliment.
A standard electrician’s solution is to install banks for switches and dimmers along the wall. Unfortunately, this ‘wall acne’ is not only unsightly, but it is also confusing to use. The Alisse keypads combine elegant style with minimalist design, enhancing the functionality and appearance of your rooms. The units are built from handcrafted natural material with a variety of finishes that express luxury with tailor-made buttons and engravings to suit any need. The innovative technology behind them gives you unparalleled control.
