Control4 home cinema

High-end audio-visual equipment is the cornerstone of any great home cinema. A high-resolution picture with pin sharp clarity and surround sound with impeccable detail are critical to the fully immersive experience. But what many people don’t consider is how to control their AV gear. If operation is overly complex or fiddly, you can soon lose interest in your investment. That’s where choosing a Control4 home cinema can make all the difference.

Why choose a Control4 home cinema?

With Control4, all your settings can be consolidated into one platform, enabling you to access your preferred home cinema setup at the touch of a button. Not only can your audio-visual equipment be switched on, you can also integrate other elements of your space – such as the lights, temperature settings and more – meaning you get a perfect viewing environment without having to access a range of apps or controls.

Setting the scene

Scenes enable you to access different settings for your home cinema easily. For example, you may want to have the lights in your room fade slowly to black when you press play, or you may wish to have your wall lights turned off but keep LED ceiling strips or fibre optic ‘stars’ lit throughout the movie. When the end credits start rolling, your lights can then gradually get brighter.

Of course, even at home there can be some distractions. If you need to answer the call of nature or nip to the kitchen to refill drinks, you can add a ‘pause’ or ‘intermission’ scene, which lights your way to the door when you press the pause button.

Minimise interruptions

Some interruptions are unavoidable, but with Control4, dealing with them is simpler and may mean you don’t even need to leave your seat. Let’s say the doorbell rings right before a plot twist. Control4 home cinemas enable you to see who has arrived without getting up. Views from your video doorbell can be transmitted to your portable touchscreen or smartphone, enabling you to see who is on the doorstep. If you need to speak to them, your doorbell app can be linked to your operating system, enabling you to exchange a few words with a delivery courier, for example.
