Since the 1990s the growth of automation integration technology has moved from a handful of companies offering limited options of “whole-house music”, to dozens of robust systems that offer control of TVs and audio throughout the home and outdoor entertainment areas, lighting, spa and pool, motorized window treatments, HVAC, and surveillance. Rapidly evolving technologies often bring to mind the words of Walt Disney “If you can dream it, you can do it”, with televisions hidden behind motorized artwork, invisible speakers for seamless walls and ceilings, outdoor audio systems blending into landscape plantings. The shift to wireless technology allows automation integration systems to create exciting experiences with limited impact to existing infrastructure.
Control4, founded in 2003, has taken the “value-added” experience and enhanced it by forming partnerships that allow connectivity, interoperation and control of over 7,000 electronics devices. Using a wireless technology called Zigbee, Control4 has built its brand on ensuring simple user interfaces, rather than complex remotes with innumerable page flips. Their business model includes apps and software that allows smartphones and tablets to become remote or secondary controls. The success of this business model has taken Control4 to the NASDQ as a publicly traded company (CTRL), with many of those who live with Control4 automation in their homes including Control4 stock in their portfolios, enjoying both the value of automation, and added value to their investments.
