Smart Automation Features

When your house appears empty, it can seem like a prime target to thieves scoping out places to rob. That’s where Control4’s “Mockupancy” smart feature can take all the worry away from leaving your house unoccupied. This feature turns on your various smart technologies sporadically throughout the day to make it seem as though someone is home.

By setting your system to “Away,” your lights will turn on and off, your shades will raise and lower, and your TV and entertainment center will play at random times. With this illusion that your home is full of life, criminals will steer clear and keep away from breaking in.

Smart Alarms and Sensors

The worst part of being gone from your home is not knowing what’s occurring while you’re away. But smart security alarms and sensors can ease that stress.

From the moment a fire starts or a carbon monoxide leak begins, your respective sensors can detect the smoke or fumes and immediately sound an alarm. The same goes for gas and water leaks so that you won’t return to a wrecked home. Sensors on windows and doors can also sound the safety alarms if there is a break-in or if an intruder is on your property.

If your alarms go off, you will get an instant notification on your smartphone or tablet. Then, depending on the situation, you can set the system to let only you know so that you can handle it, or have it immediately call the appropriate authorities so that they will be sent straight to your house.

These alarms are also helpful if you and your family are home. If a fire happens in the middle of the night, or if there’s a carbon monoxide leak, you can rest assured your sensors and alarms will alert the whole household and keep everyone safe.

Video Surveillance

Keeping an eye on your entire property gets much easier with surveillance cameras installed all around your home. Right from your smartphone, you can view live footage and watch any captured video in real-time – from anywhere in the world.

Your cameras will be able to see any part of your property. You can adjust, tilt, pan, and zoom-in your cameras with just a few presses of a button so that every area and room within your view.

Have motion sensors show you the moment any movement is detected, and have the system alert you so that you can pull up the footage in just a few seconds. If you can’t view something right away, you can save videos to your phone to look at later.

Surveillance cameras make it a breeze to check in on your home’s status at any time and from anywhere – even from your own bedroom. You can check the premises right before going to sleep, and rest knowing that your property is protected and secure.
