Make the Most of Your Control4 System During Difficult Times

The current health crisis is taking a toll on stress levels across Kaysville, UT and the rest of America as families are faced with a new normal inside their homes. Kids are learning from home, many adults are working from home, and trips outdoors are few as we attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Though there will come a day when regular routines return, stress will always be part of life. Smart home technology can help alleviate some of that stress so you can focus more on what’s important—especially during uncertain times. Read on to learn how a Control4 system can help you feel more at ease now and in the future.

Improve Peace of Mind with Smart Security

Smart security devices as part of a home automation system not only help keep out intruders, but with the right sensors, your smart home system can alert you to fires and water leaks, too. These real-time smartphone alerts are especially important if you work for an essential business and are away from home. If your kids or pets are in the house while you’re out, use your smartphone to view live and recorded surveillance footage to check in and make sure everyone’s there and safe.

Never wonder if your front door is unlocked or garage door is open when you leave the house or go to sleep. Control4 can alert you of unsecured doors and windows when you’re away, as well as give you instant access to locks, alarms, and more directly from your smartphone.

Sleep Better with Automated Scenes

Stress negatively impacts how well we sleep at night, which can lead to extreme fatigue and even health problems. By optimizing smart technology in the bedroom, you can create an environment that encourages better slumber with strategic control of lights, shading, and climate.

Program your lights to dim and shades to lower about an hour before bed to help initiate restfulness. Additionally, your thermostat can lower at the same time so that your bedroom is nice and cool once your head hits the pillow. Program these adjustments to occur for all bedrooms in the home, whether automatically or at the touch of a button, to help everyone sleep better and wake up more refreshed.

Set the Mood with Whole-Home Audio

Last month, we talked about the role music plays in helping to reduce stress. A whole-home audio system lets you effortlessly enjoy music on your own terms, in any room of your home, at the touch of a button. Do away with piles of remotes, hazardous wires, and low-quality sound. Instead, press a button on your controller of choice or simply say a command to blanket your home with calming music.

Streaming content from the world’s most popular services is right at your fingertips. Kids can enjoy the latest pop hits upstairs while you and your partner listen to jazz in the kitchen. Control4 makes managing the media in every zone of your home easy for the whole family.
