Connecting your Home Is a Snap
Snap AV, Control4’s parent company, recently hosted their annual Snap Pro Live virtual event, where they unveiled the latest devices featuring native compatibility with Control4 home automation systems. By constructing their devices with home automation in mind, Snap AV leverages much of the untapped potential of smart integration.
“For our product platforms, we have several priorities that will help you: we want our products to provide a level of integration that ... increases the reliability of a system,” says Snap AV CEO John Heyman.
Snap AV's goal is to make integrated control as easy as possible, saving on installation time and ensuring compatibility across the board. Control4 boasts integration with many of the most popular manufacturers, while products built by the manufacturer present even more benefits.
For example, a software update won't suddenly change how one component works but leave others behind. Instead, software updates and other maintenance happen across the entire system, so everything remains optimally functional.
Control4 has recently released a host of new products, from speakers to OS updates, plus a new video doorbell. But what can you expect from each?
