I’m here at the biggest industry tradeshow of the year – lots of exciting stuff happening! Of course Control4 has great products, but we also have partners who have come out with cool cool products that can be used with any Control4 system. Here are a few examples:
VoicePod – Ever wish you could talk to your house and have it talk right back to you? VoicePod (expected to ship early Q1 of 2013) makes this possible. Simply say “Hello VoicePod” then issue a command or ask a question. I would use this all the time in my house, “Lock the doors”, “Turn the lights off”, “What is the temperature today?”
Nyce Control – When I think of motion sensors I think of big, ugly eye-type devices stuck in the corners of rooms. But Nyce Control made me change my mind…they have this motion sensor that is about as big as my pointer finger.
Shades – Being woken up by the sun as the shades in your bedroom slowly raise….sounds nice yes? Automated shades are so great, and make a HUGE difference when it comes energy conservation. We’ve got several great partners who do an outstanding job with shades of all different types. Somfy, QMotion, Mechoshade, Performance Shades, and Lutron all impressed me this year.
