Smart Thermostats

When it comes to climate control automation, most people start with smart thermostats. Smart thermostats allow you to set schedules for your HVAC system so it runs in tune with your lifestyle. 

But imagine it’s a sweltering sunny day, and you’re about to head home from work. You’re leaving early, so the AC schedule hasn’t kicked in yet. But you don’t want to walk into an oven, either. Thankfully, a smart home system like Control4 lets you remotely turn on the HVAC system right from your phone. You’ll ensure the house is the perfect temperature by the time you step in—without wasting energy. 

Temperature Sensors

Here’s a common issue: the hallway is freezing, but the living room feels like a sauna. Traditional thermostats usually only measure the temperature in one area—until now. When you have temperature sensors installed in different rooms, they can communicate with your smart thermostat, painting a more accurate picture of your home’s climate. This way, the system can adjust the AC accordingly to ensure every nook and cranny is as comfortable as you want. 

Motorized Shades

While thermostats and sensors work wonders, why not tackle the problem at its source? The sun can be merciless, especially here in Georgia. Motorized shades are an elegant solution to keep your home cool. 

Outdoor screens can be automated to lower during peak heat hours, providing much-needed shade. Indoors, honeycomb shades limit airflow and act as insulation on the window, keeping the hot sun at bay. And the best part? They’re automated! This means the shades know when the sun is its hottest and can lower independently across all your windows. 

Climate by Voice Control

Meet Josh, your new climate control sidekick. is an intelligent voice assistant that’s been specially designed for smart home control. Josh understands natural language better than any other voice assistant on the market, so if you walk in the house and say, “Josh, it’s so hot,” it knows what to do. integrates with your smart home system, so it can orchestrate your thermostats, sensors, and motorized shades to activate simultaneously. Your home’s climate is literally at the tip of your tongue—welcome to the future.
