Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), a global provider of smart home solutions, has announced the availability of the new Control4 Intercom Anywhere, including a new app for iOS and Android mobile devices, the company said.
With Intercom Anywhere, Control4 homeowners can receive video intercom calls from a Control4 Door Station, enabling them to see and communicate with visitors at the front door or gate, whether they´re home or away. In addition, homeowners will see who´s at the door prior to answering the call, and can simultaneously activate a home scene such as turning on lights, opening the gate, or unlocking the door or garage in response to who has arrived.
Homeowners can also quickly activate alerts such as sounding an alarm, locking all doors, or turning on all interior and exterior lighting for additional safety measures.
Control4´s Intercom Anywhere places homeowners in control with an app that´s designed to launch and connect quickly. By providing video previews from the Control4 Door Station, like caller-id for the front door, homeowners can simply ignore unwanted calls, answer calls from a welcomed guest, or accept a delivery even when they´re miles away.
Modern video doorbell products allow the use of mobile phones to see and talk to visitors at the door, but only Control4 Intercom Anywhere supports additional customizable programming. For example, while in an Intercom Anywhere call, the user can turn on lights, unlock the door, open the gate or garage, disarm or trigger the alarm, or any other action uniquely enabled by the Control4 automation system.
Control4 Intercom Anywhere also provides new ways to communicate among family members. Family members can make calls from Control4 Touch Screens within the home to a family member´s mobile phone or vice versa. The babysitter or child not answering the landline phone at the house? Use Intercom Anywhere to dial directly to any or all Control4 Touch Screens for a video-call to get connected, fast. Want to call the family to dinner? One tap and you can broadcast the call to dinner throughout the house.
Control4 offers a complete audio/video intercom system with sleek video door stations and dedicated interactive video touch screens with premium audio and video quality. Whether at home or away, homeowners can now receive incoming audio and video intercom calls on their mobile devices or call from their mobile phones to Control4 Touch Screens installed throughout the home.
