Connect Your Garage Door, Refrigerator & Coffee Pot with Control4
Automate Smart Appliances & Garage Doors with a Control4 Dealer
We’ve raved about Control4’s smart home capabilities with lighting, audio, security, and thermostats. But the automation company’s new integration with technology brands Sub-Zero Group, Inc. and Genie invite all new appliances to the game. Homeowners can now use their Control4 smart system to automate their garage doors, refrigerators, and even coffee pots. The smart home just got a whole lot smarter!
As a Control4 dealer in New York, NY, we’re more than excited about this new development. Read on to see how the new integration works and can enhance your daily life.
The ultimate luxury in New York City? A garage. If you’re lucky enough to have one, make the most of it by incorporating it into your smart system. The smart garage door-opener brand Genie is now a partner with Control4, so you can intuitively open and lock the door alongside your other smart devices in the same app. You can control and monitor the status of your garage door from anywhere and can give virtual keys for temporary or permanent access to relatives, friends, or service workers. Plus, Control4’s voice-assistant capabilities mean you can tell Alexa to shut the garage door while your hands are full of groceries.
Refrigeration & Wine Storage
Sub-Zero’s smart refrigerator/freezer is now compatible with Control4, where users can seamlessly view and set the temperature of their fridge from a phone or tablet. The smart fridge preserves refrigerated foods with cool, moist air and frigid, dry air for frozen food, and fights food spoilage and odors with a NASA-inspired air purification system.
What about wine? Sub-Zero’s wine storage units are guardians against heat, humidity, vibration, and light, which can weaken wine’s taste. The cabinets ensure that both red and white are maintained at the appropriate temperature, and the bronze-tinted glass shields UV light. While wine storage will most likely stay stagnant, you can always change and adjust the temperature to the exact degree from your Control4 system and check to see that it’s running. And in the case of incredibly rare and expensive bottles, make sure the wine is locked and safe.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if your coffee was warm and ready for you in the morning? Bid farewell to rushing to Starbucks on your way to work or gulping down a weak Keurig cup. Wolf, a branch of Sub-Zero Group, creates smart coffee pots that brew your coffee beverages to your exact standards heated to the precise temperature you desire. From macchiatos to lattes and plain hot water for tea, you can save your preferences so that it knows exactly how to brew it every time.
