Enjoy Summertime with a Control4 Smart Home
How to Use Custom Controls for Every Occasion in Beaumont, TX
One of the most exciting features of a Control4 smart home is that you can customize your controls and create sequences, what we call “scenes”, for all kinds of occasions and practical purposes. All you have to do is open the Control4 app on your mobile device or go into the system on your touch screen and select the room, feature and setting you like then save it under a title. For example, for an away scene, have the security system arm, the shades go down, the lights all turn off, and the thermostat set to an energy-saving degree. Title it “Vacation” and then when it’s time for you to pack up and party in the Bahamas, all you have to do is hit one button. In this blog, we have some fun ideas for you to create scenes for special occasions this summer in your Beaumont, Texas home. Continue reading to learn more.

Summertime is an exciting time of the year in Texas. It means you'll have more time with the kids or other family members and friends to enjoy the sunny, warm weather. Plan a pool party with your Control4 smart home system by creating a music playlist of your favorite summer hits and distributing the music to your landscape speakers around the pool and patio. Turn on the outdoor Seura TV, which prevents glare from the sun (even in the brightest daylight) and stream the baseball game or a movie. If your summer bash goes late into the evening, you can always add a lighting setting to the scene and brighten the pool, walkways, and bar area. Hit one button under a title like “Summertime” and it all turns on instantly! You'll have this scene at your fingertips all summer long so you can work on that tan and have fun.
Whether you have a home theater in a dedicated room or a media room setup, movie night can be quick and easy with a “Movie” sequence. Hit a button on your smartphone, tablet or touchscreen – or a custom keypad on the wall - and the blackout shades will come down to prevent glare on the screen, the thermostat will lower to a comfortable degree, the lights will turn off so you can see the screen better (except for a few backlights or path lights so no one trips) and the projector and screen comes on. If you have the Kaleidescape movie server, you can pick a movie ahead of time and download it so that it's ready to go. That way if it's a Saturday night or Wednesday morning, you're one click away from a fantastic flick.
