Home Automation Brings Peace of Mind and Ease of Living to the Holiday Season

It’s hard to imagine, but, yes, the holidays are right around the corner, bringing peace, good cheer, lots of to-dos, and a little extra stress. Whether the holiday season gets you giddy with excitement or sends chills down your back, a Control4 home automation system can help. Let’s look at how whole-home control helps families in Fairfield County, NY, make it through another holiday season.

Smart Doorbell

The holidays are a time of shopping, parties, and visits to rarely seen friends and family members. Many people are out running around during a time when home deliveries abound. Unfortunately, package theft is not uncommon. A survey conducted by C + R Research found that 43% of respondents had a package stolen in 2020, and almost 64% reported that it happened more than once.

Control4’s smart doorbell, Chime, enables homeowners to communicate directly with delivery personnel when they come to the door. They can unlock the door and turn on the entry lights, allowing them to drop off the package or let them know a secure place where they can leave it. You’ll receive a notification when someone comes to the door so you can see and talk to them via your video doorbell.

This technology also comes in handy when you’re out running around, lose track of time, and your guests arrive at your home before you do. Simply let them in with one touch on your smartphone or tablet and direct them to the Neeo Remote on the kitchen counter. Then, with an easy-to-use touchscreen, your guests can get the party started by starting the holiday music, igniting the fireplace, and adjust the lighting.

Smart Appliances

Control4’s universal remote control lets you take command of your kitchen from wherever you are in your home. Did you forget to check the turkey before everyone settled in for a holiday movie? The Wolf E-Series Oven allows you to keep an eye on your cooking remotely and alerts you when the food is done or needs attention.

Set your Sub-Zero Built-In Series refrigerator to “Party Mode,” and the temperature automatically adjusts for more activity, increasing your ice production in the process.

Secure Your Home While Away

If you are traveling for the holidays, let Control4 provide a secure home setting. The Mockupancy security setting makes your home look “occupied” by adjusting the lighting, blinds, and audio-video entertainment just as if you were home. A would-be burglar thinks someone is home, listening to their favorite tunes or watching TV, and sets their sights on another target.
