Convenience -- isn't that what technology is supposed to give us? We're happy to get the latest gadgets and plug in at any time, but we want it to be easy and work the first time.
In our last blog, we introduced you to Control4 and all of the ways it can save time, energy and money while making your life a whole lot easier. The great news is that Control4 isn't just designed for the home -- small and large businesses such as hotels and restaurants are taking advantage of this new technology too! Read on to see how you might experience Control4 elsewhere.
Nights Away from Home
Control4 might allow you to experience the true definition of luxury in the 21st century during your next hotel stay. Two Las Vegas hotels, the Mandarin Oriental and Aria Las Vegas, have equipped their 4,300 guest rooms with Control4 to pamper guests on a whole new level. For example, using one simple remote and the on-screen view, guests can easily use the TV to set the systems in their rooms to their personal preferences, including lighting levels, room temperature, television/video systems, music, drapes and guest services. Take a look at this video and you'll be booking your visit right away.
Out Socializing With Friends
Headed out to the neighborhood sports bar with the guys to watch your favorite team? Pluckers Wing Bar houses 60+ TVs in its 5,000 square-foot Plano, Texas location. Would you want to have to control every one of those screens one by one? With Control4, the TVs can be programmed for any combination of shows. For example, during football season, create a button called "NFL Sunday" to show the games on a certain number of screens in the restaurant. A program can even be set up to change the channel at pre-set times.
In the Boardroom
Maybe one of the best uses of Control4 is in a corporate environment. Have you ever attended a meeting where the presenter was not easily able to display the information from their laptop to the projector screen? After 20 years in the IT industry, I have come to the aid of many. Technology in a conference room should be easy to use by all, and, most importantly, by the top executives who expect everything to go off without a hitch. With Control4, you don't have to have IT on standby -- just walk over to the touch screen and push a button to set up the room exactly as you want it. You'll look like an IT pro! Additionally, Control4 can simplify the use of video conferencing to include off-site employees. Weekly and monthly calls can be pre-scheduled to start automatically. No need to re-invent the wheel each time. Control4 fits in seamlessly with existing infrastructure, offering easy set-up of lights, screens, audio and video.
Safety, Security, Flexibility
As at home, Control4 can enhance safety and security in hotels, restaurants and the office. This sophisticated system can be programmed to text you with a variety of alerts, such as when someone has entered a restricted area or if an alarm goes off. How much time, money and aggravation would that save? Best of all, Control4 offers the flexibility you need. You can start with a basic system and add on whenever you want, letting you determine the timing and configuration that works for you.
