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.

Newly completed home in Toluca Lake, CA. The homeowner came to us just before closing escrow on a new home and wanted to create a total smart home, complete with a cinematic theater room.
The home now features Control4 total home automation, with 10" in-wall touch panels and a single streamlined interface to control everything from the Lutron smart lighting system, the front door intercom, garage doors, drive and pedestrian gates, surveillance cameras, TV and audio systems in each room, even the pool and spa.
Martin Logan Electrostat tower speakers frame the Family Room fireplace providing incredible sound for both music and audio from the Sony Master Series OLED TV. A whole-home video distribution system discretely organizes video sources in the equipment closet (4K Apple TVs, Blu-ray Player, Cable/Satellite TV boxes) to transmit to screens throughout the house.
For an even more immersive at-home movie night, this house also features a media room theater, with a Sonance Reference in-wall surround sound system and sound-cushioning acoustic panels, letting you get lost in the movie. A Sony 4K UHD video projector and acoustically transparent ultra high definition screen make sure no frame and no detail is missed. Smart lighting helps set the perfect atmosphere, sleek and comfortable theater seating from CinemaTech has room for everyone, and a Control4 touch panel controls everything with ease.
"Built by audiophiles for audiophiles, no expense has been spared in producing the most versatile, customizable and feature-rich audio processor available today in the high end consumer space."
Developed on the same platform used for professional cinema, the RS20i Audio Processor sounds every bit as sleek and stunning as it looks. Features like stackable multiple EQs, room optimisation, and extensive automation controls to name just a few, help deliver clear-as-a-bell, true-to-source sound that is second to none.
With 16 digital audio channels as well as support for up to 85 digital and analog inputs and 34 audio outputs, and expansion slots, the RS20i more than accomodates any surround sound format currently available, in the best way possible. It's this excellent quality, versatility, and ability to be customized that also makes this processor essentially "future-proof," adaptable to anything new technology might come up with, it will never be left behind. Datasat's RS20i is the new, and future, gold standard in any luxury home entertainment system.
If you have kids, or know any kids, you know that pretty much everything in their vicinity needs to be baby-proofed, for the safety of a crawling or toddling child, as well as your expensive technology. A personal childhood memory of my younger brother sticking tweezers in a wall outlet reminds me that the clatter of the remote control isn't the only thing to be concerned about.
Here are 3 ways to protect your little ones and protect your electronic investments, without sacrificing any style or convenience.
Childproofing your home electronics doesn't have to mean hard-to-open (for adults!) cabinets and an ugly plastic cover over everything. You don't want to have to steer the younger members of the family away from an entire area of the house or continuously repeat, "Don't touch that!" Protecting your loved ones and your investments can be easy, and a bonus for everyone. These changes will mean that every guest and member of the family can fully enjoy every part of your home with total peace of mind.
