The DIY Solution to Lighting Automation
Lighting control is a cornerstone of smart home technology. Not only is it versatile, beautiful, and energy efficient, but it can also help protect your Beverly Hills, CA home at night.
The best part? It does all that automatically -- that means you can tap a single button and every connected fixture in your home will react. In fact, your lighting system can combine with other devices as well as part of a total home automation system. With just a single command, your lights can dim, your doors can lock, and your thermostat can adjust. Your integrator can program your system to your specifications, so you can use it to enhance your lifestyle.
But now, Control4’s latest update has changed that. You don’t even need to call your integrator to program your system -- you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

When/Then Puts Customization Into Your Hands
For years, if you wanted to enjoy the power of home automation you had to call up your integrator and have them install and program the devices you wanted to integrate.
Want the outdoor lights to come on at a certain time? Or the lights in your bedroom to rise along with your whole home audio system in the morning? Your local CE professional could make it happen.
But Control4 -- a leader in home automation technology -- saw a need to put more power into the users’ hands. Instead of a static system that could only change with a call to your technology partner, Control4 thought that you should be able to combine the controls of multiple devices yourself.
Of course, programming automation is a difficult task. That’s why they created When/Then, a simple, user-friendly system that helps you craft the scenes and settings you’ll love directly from your home PC.
Set your outdoor lights to raise at a specified time, and simultaneously lower the motorized shades on your first floor. Craft a home theater scene that dims the lights, turns on the projector, and lowers the thermostat with a single button.
With When/Then, there’s virtually no end to what your system can do.
