The CORE Series of Control4 Controllers

Control4 OS 3.3.0, the latest platform update, includes support for the CORE controllers, the next-generation hardware that runs your smart home system. Here’s a glimpse at a few of the features their latest technology brings:

  • LED Color Control: A new vibrant color wheel makes it easy to change the lighting in your home. By integrating Lutron’s Ketra full spectrum lighting, you have access to millions of colors that you can change effortlessly. You can also create presets and scenes that set the lighting for specific tasks, moods, and events. For example, tap the “Outdoor Dining” icon on your touchscreen or smartphone and watch as your kitchen, patio, and landscape lights transform to your chosen hues and temperatures. 

Digital Home Systems can also program your lighting to change based on preset schedules, such as the time of day. The lights brighten, mimicking the cool blue tones of the midday sun before transforming to the soft, warm tones of a setting sun at day’s end. Or change your ceiling to the night sky when it’s time for bed, and wake to light the color of sunrise. 

  • Support for Apple Watch: Your selected Favorites now appear on your Apple Watch, offering easy access and one-touch control of the devices you use the most. 
  • Updated Control4 apps for iOS and Android: This update allows for faster connection speeds when you use your smartphone app to connect to your smart home when you’re away. Whether checking in on the kids, locking the doors, or changing the temperature, you’ll find up to 40% faster access. 
  • Highest-Quality Audio: The CORE 5 high-resolution audio offers higher-quality, digital-to-analog converters and distributes seven zones of streaming audio, allowing families to stream numerous leading music services or their local music library simultaneously. The high-resolution audio servers offer native support for TIDAL, Spotify, Pandora, Qobuz, Sirius XM TuneIn, SOUNDMACHINE, and more.
  • Increased Processing Power: The powerful processor is strong enough to coordinate hundreds of connected devices, including those controlling vital security and surveillance systems, communication systems, climate, complete interior and exterior lighting, and sophisticated audio and video distribution systems for multiple zones. 
  • 4K On-Screen Interactive Menu: An elegant 4K menu offers effortless control of climate, security, entertainment sources, scene selection, and more.
