See What’s New In Control4 OS 3 - A Must Have Upgrade For The Home Automation User

All-new interface featuring enhanced entertainment streaming, improved controls, and unparalleled customization.

To build a culture of automation in the home, convenience is the foundation of the entire concept. To automate systems such as home security, entertainment, window treatments, lighting, and environmental automation is all about making things easier for you. With the push of one button, you can lock the house, close the blinds, turn off the lights and radio, and lower the temp, all while you’re in the car driving to work. However, just because this convenience is available to you already, why not enhance the experience? Why not make it even easier for you to use your automation system by upgrading to the latest available for your Control4 home automation system? In this article, we will discuss some of the new features and enhancements in Control4 OS 3.

All-New Interface

The new user interface in OS 3 is glossy, flows naturally, and provides a new level of customization. User interface fluidity is not just a trend for software applications. It is the expectation of the modern user. Control4 has taken this to a whole new level. The new interface is modern, intuitive, and fun to use!



Reimagined Entertainment Experience

With over 1000 new features and enhancements, OS 3's new entertainment screen is at the top of the list of the most notable of the new features. The keystone to the new design is the brand new Active Media Bar, which shows what is currently playing in a room. Additionally, in the Active Media Bar, we can interact with streaming apps like Pandora and others. Album artwork is clearly seen. Easy to use sliders allow you to adjust the volume in each room of the house, and is intuitively accessible on the interface.



Enhanced Home Dashboard - See Your Entire Home At A Glance

With the My Home screen, you can consolidate devices across your home, and see them all in one panel. With easy to read icons, you can check the status of each of the device’s states, so that it is evident that your doors are locked, the garage door is down, ceiling fans are turned off, etc. This intuitive take on home automation ensures that your home is set the way you want it without the need to peruse the interface for all of your devices. 



Customize Your User Experience

Rich customization features allow your favorite or most used devices to be accessed in one place called the "DashBoard" to make the Control4 system as easy as possible to use. At the same time, personalization is also a priority, allowing the wallpaper to be used on your tablets, TV's and Control4 apps to give your system the personal touch it deserves. You can choose one of the smart prepackaged wallpapers, or you can use one of your photos or designs. Call it self expression, personalization, or just plain cool, with Control4 OS 3 customization, your home automation system can now feel like it is truly yours.
