CONTROL4: ADDING & EDITING LIGHTING
In OS 2.3, you can create, edit, and rename simple lighting scenes from your touch screens or MyHomePC app as the mood strikes you (not available on MyHome mobile devices). This is an especially handy feature, because sometimes when you’ve lived with your smart lighting for awhile, you realize that some things could work a little better for you. Now you can make these changes yourself. Download the Control4 Lighting Scenes guide here.
CONTROL4 APP: WHEN > THEN
When/Then is a powerful tool to automate device interconnectivity around your home. You can link actions to button presses, schedules or status changes. “Whens” represent events that happen in your home. “Thens” are automated behaviors that can happen in response to a given event or “When” in your home. Pick a “When” and connect it to a “Then”. It’s that simple.
CONTROL4 APP: TUNE IN
The TuneIn service in a Control4® system lets you listen to music, talk shows, news, sports, and more from over 70 thousand Internet radio stations and millions of shows (podcasts) worldwide from your favorite Navigator (iPad®, iPhone®, Android, tablet, PC/Mac, or capacitive- touch 7” Touch Screens).
