Excited to announce new improvements to the Control4 System from CEDIA 2015! One of the major changes that we got excited about is their new native streaming audio services. Their expanded services now include Deezer, TIDAL, and Pandora! They have also improved the search and quality of display for the “My Movies” and “My Music” experience.

Control4 has also allowed for more customization to your devices. They have now provided multiple screen saver configurations and displays that include current playing media, date, time, and weather. The option to also use personal photos for wallpapers or screen savers is also available!

Mockupancy isn’t just a cool new world but also a service Control4 now offers.  You can make your home appear occupied even while you’re away! The Mockupancy driver records all the day-to-day interactions within the home including lights, shades, and entertainment. Control4 them simulates interactions to play back and make the home appear occupied while homeowners are away.
