Add and Change the Automation in Your Home
If you’re not a Control4 customer, it’s important to know that the system installation and programming are completed first by a certified Control4 dealer – like AVWORX. You don’t have to use When >> Then to customize your smart home; we can program scenes and automation sequences for you.
However, if you’re interested in tweaking smart home scenes and automation later on, that’s when When >> Then comes in handy. After all, a smart home is best personalized by those who live there. Using this web-based platform, you can create new smart home scenes, automate a new task, and more.
For example: When the sun rises, then your porch lights turn off. When you double-tap the keypad in the living room, then your favorite jazz playlist on Spotify plays overhead. When the garage door opens, then you receive a push notification. The possibilities are endless!
Test and tweak your changes until they’re just right. Plus, don’t worry about making accidental changes to your system. Scenes or automation sequences created by your dealer will be locked so you can have fun customizing your smart home without editing or deleting existing functions you want to keep.
You’ll Need a 4Sight Subscription
To unlock When >> Then personalization, you’ll need a Control4 4Sight subscription. A 4Sight subscription includes much more than When >> Then, too! At just $100 a year, this service allows you to access and manage door locks, cameras, thermostats, and other home devices from anywhere in the world using the Control4 app. It also enables hands-free smart home control with simple voice commands through Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, and Josh.ai.
A 4Sight subscription also unlocks the power of Control4’s Intercom Anywhere app, which allows you to monitor and communicate with any room of your home – including the front door. Remotely greet guests and unlock the door to let them in using the same app. Or quickly broadcast a message from one touchscreen to all the rest in the home to let your family know it’s time for dinner.
4Sight truly takes your Control4 smart home to the next level. Put the power of your smart home in your hands by choosing Control4 and 4Sight!
