Enough About Man Caves – Tech Out YOUR Fav Space

We may have an abundance of blogs in regard to automating the man cave in your home. I am aware that everyone in the house enjoys this space, but there are other spaces that can benefit from automation that others may enjoy a little more. For instance you would be amazed the things home automation can do for your closet.

The Dream Walk-In Closet

Most people have seen in movies when the actor or actress walks into a giant organized closet and all the lights come on showcasing each organized area from shoes to dresses and jewelry. With a Control4 system you can create scenes and incorporate them into your own walk-in closet. Program the lighting to specify which section of the closet you are looking at and create a button for it. Do you enjoy music while you’re getting ready? A “Getting Ready” button can turn on the music and set the lights to the perfect brightness. A “Browsing” button can highlight the clothes, shoes and jewelry – or really step it up and create a button for each section. Let Control4 bring out your inner Carrie Bradshaw and help you to create the closet of your dreams!

Live-In Motivation

Everyone knows that having the good intention to work out and actually doing it are two different things. We get distracted by so many things in our day-to-day lives and then when we are exhausted by 10 PM we realize we forgot to do the one thing we set out to do that day… go to the gym. Let Control4 help you get motivated to jump on the treadmill or hit the weights. Hit the custom “Time to Work Out” button you created to pump you up. The lights ease on in your bedroom gently waking you up out of your slumber. Softly a high-energy song starts to play and you begin to feel the beat. You walk out into the hallway where the lights have all turned on – leading the way to your work out area where the music is playing at a high enough level to get your blood pumping. Your house just ensured that you got your workout for a day and all you had to do was push one button… It’s like having a live-in trainer!

Be the Hostess with the Mostest

Even if you feel as though you were born to entertain, sometimes it’s nice to have someone by your side to make sure certain things go right. By adding a “Time to Cook” Control4 button in your kitchen you can boost your mood during your prep by having the lights turn up (you have to be able to read your recipes) the music turn on (dancing while cooking never hurt anyone) and call your butler to bring you your favorite bottle of wine… OK that last one might not be realistic. BUT everything else is accurate. When the guests start arriving hit the “Entertain Me” button and the music turns down to allow the guests to chat, lighting dims slightly, the thermostat turns down a couple of degrees to accommodate for the extra body heat and your smart refrigerator begins making extra ice to ensure your guests will have cold drinks all night long. You never have to worrying about setting the ambiance again, just push a button and let your Control4 system do it for you!

These are just three examples of how you can customize your favorite space in the home. The possibilities are endless. Now Control4 just made it simpler then pressing a button. If you have the Amazon Echo in your house you can connect your home automation system and ask Alexa to set the scene for you. It doesn’t get much simpler then that!
