Control4’s C4Yourself Day to Touch Down in 85 Cities
The open-smart home event, C4Yourself Day will be hitting 85 cities across the globe on June 13 from 4-8 p.m. Homeowners, builders, architects, and design professionals are invited to test out the latest smart home features for themselves at their nearest Control4 Certified Showroom.
Expertly designed, at-home settings will serve as the backdrop for the evening including mock living rooms, kitchens, and backyards. Each host, a Control4 Certified Showroom Dealer, will walk everyone through various integrated smart home functionalities including lock downs, transitioning the kitchen from cooking to dining mode, and preparing a Netflix special. During the process, attendees will be able to envision how each smart home experience might tie into their own projects by interacting with handheld remotes, touch screens, the Control4 App, keypads, and more.
Each Certified Showroom will highlight certain product categories like smart lighting and shading, multi-room audio, security, and more. The Showrooms are frequently updated with the latest smart home devices, including Control4’s Intercom Anywhere, and are customized to reflect many popular experiences.
While many homeowners may have separate apps for lighting, door locks, speaker, cameras, etc. the smart home solution provider wants to show that it’s possible to have everything in one place. Brad Russell, research director, connected home at Parks Associates, explained: “Consumers need to experience them ‘out of the box’ and in real-life settings,” and C4Yourself Day is working to promote just that.
“C4Yourself Day is an opportunity for dealers to show that the smart home can juggle more than one feature at a time. The events highlight the value of a customized, professionally-installed system for homeowners looking for a simplified living room, to an entire smart house,” said Control4 CEO and Chairman Martin Plaehn. “The growth in the number of our Certified Showroom dealers proves that there is nothing like a hands-on experience to inspire homeowners and the design community for an upgraded smart home.”
Those interested in attending can find their nearest Control4 Certified Showroom and RSVP at control4.com. This year’s event is particularly special as Control4 recently announced a mergence with SnapAV. C4Yourself Day is an example of how they plan to “better serve the expanding smart home market, making the lives of integrators easier and their businesses more effective and efficient.”
