Over the past couple of years there has been a rapidly growing trend of wearable smart devices. People are wanting access to the hundreds of thousands of apps they can download to their phone quicker and so the smart watch was developed. Forbes estimates the in the year 2019, 245 million smart watches will ship to people around the world.
With this new technology and the home automation industry expecting to hit 58 billion in 2020, you better believe that home automation companies like Control4 have developed apps so you can have total control of your home right from your wrist, no matter where you are in the world.
A Deeper Looking into Smart Watches and Smart Homes
Control4 quickly noticed the trend of smart watches and developed an easy-to-use app that gives you control over the most important things in your house. So what exactly does the Control4 Andriod, and Apple apps do?
One of the coolest features of the Control4 app is its ability to have custom actions programmed into it. This means that you can set custom lighting scenes, the ability to turn on the TV and select your favorite station, or just turn on the music to a certain level throughout your house. Frankly the possibilities are endless.
The next button that you will find on the app is Media. This single button gives you full control over the audio and video sources in every room. This means that you can change the channel, skip to the next track or adjust the volume. Pretty cool if you ask me…
The third button on the app is, Thermostat. This button allows you to control not one but all the thermostats in your home. Now you can set the temperature in your home from even the comfort of your bed.
Is that all? Nope. The following and last button on is Security. You can check and make sure your front door is locked when you are away from home or even open and close the garage door.
But wait there is more… You can not only control all of these features while you are home but also from anywhere in the world.
