Imagine a world where you can control everything in your house with the command of your voice, a tablet, or a smartphone. That means answering the door without leaving the comfort of your couch, monitoring your entire house even when you’re at work, and locking up all entrances with just one tap before you hit the sack.

Now, what if we told you that such a world exists right now?

With 2021 finally behind us, many of us are keeping our eyes on the future and focusing on things that are in our control.

If you don't have one, this might be the year to discuss with your Control4 dealer how you can integrate one with your home automation system.
