Control4, an innovator in residential and commercial automation systems, announced a home automation Starter Kit that enables smart-home control in a single room with the ability to expand to a complete home system. The Starter Kit includes the new Control4 HC-250 Controller, the brains of the system, plus a Control4 SR-250 remote, which can control all the devices in an entertainment system, plus movies and music, lighting, and more.
Home automation has long been considered a high-end luxury item for the rich and famous. Recently, cable television companies and wireless service providers have been marketing “smart home” solutions for an ongoing monthly fee, but those solutions deliver only a few rudimentary automation tasks. Control4’s new Starter Kit offers consumers the opportunity to experience these benefits in one room, which they then can expand throughout the entire home, whenever they want.
The Control4 HC-250 delivers a new level of performance, control and value. This slim little box tucks behind your TV or on a shelf and is the “brain” of the system that easily automates, integrates and controls the key devices and systems in your home. The HC-250 provides control of lighting, temperature, and security systems, while also providing instantaneous access to your video and music collections, gaming systems, streaming content and more, all through the TV in your living room or from your favorite Android or Apple tablet or smartphone.
The Control4 Starter Kit allows you to easily:
The HC-250 supports both digital audio and video over HDMI (2 audio outputs – 1 analog and 1 HDMI, plus 1 analog audio input) for control of entertainment devices, and can deliver a powerful multi-room music experience when integrated with wireless speakers and an amplifier. Whether it’s plugging your iPhone into the audio input, accessing streaming digital music services, or using the USB port to plug in a drive with your entire music collection, the Control4 HC-250 catalogs the music through an elegant interface for playback as one seamless music collection.
With a sleek design and compact form-factor, the HC-250 fits easily behind a TV and features new built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enabled by a single CAT5/CAT6 cable. No Ethernet? No problem. Integrated Wireless-N WiFi and ZigBee deliver high-performance wireless networking, which means the Controller works over Wi-Fi, eliminating the expense and hassle of pulling wires.
