Control4 is a leading automation system for homes and businesses, offering a personalized and unified smart home system to automate and control connected devices including lighting, audio, video, climate control, intercom, and security. Control-4 was founded in 2003 and debuted at the 2004 CEDIA Expo home technology trade show releasing its first products later that year, as an early entrant in the home automation market.
Over 15 years later, the Control4 operating system now interoperates with tens-of-thousands of third-party products, available in over 100 countries and currently runs in around 475,000 homes orchestrating more than 15 million connected devices worldwide.
Control4 was a publicly traded company from 2013 until 2019, when it merged with SnapAV. In 2021, the combined companies formed Snap One. Control4 is the flagship smart home automation brand for Snap One.
Control4 is the system we propose when the requirements for a property focus mainly on audio and visual systems with single native remote-control devices. With its interoperability with many third-party devices Control-4 is a great choice for bringing these devices together to work as one. For example, we have used Control-4 and Clipsal C-Bus lighting together in home cinemas where the lighting scene activated is dependent on user interactions with Control-4 such as pausing or playing a film.
