Control4 is now offering card access packages. There are four different packages offered which include Doorbell and Phone, Water Leak Detection, Smart Garage, and Smart Garage Deluxe. The neat thing is that if your doorbell or phone rings, your Control4 will detect this and trigger your home to automate with your desired response. For example, the doorbell could ring and then your security camera could show you who is at the door, your audio system could turn to a lower volume or the lights could flash to let a deaf person know someone is visiting.
The same goes for the Water Leak Detection. You can program the Control4 to generate a response within the home from your other automation devices. Even more helpful in this case is that when you are away from home your Control4 device can alert you that you have a water leak at home.
There are many nice features for the Smart Garage as well. You can program it to open and close at certain times during the day. Hasn’t everyone been annoyed at some point that it was left up the night before? Also, it comes with a Card Access External Thermostat which makes it easy to get an outside temperature reading to allow outdoor temperature -based automation events of your choice occur within the home. Each Card Access Package allows the homeowner more ease in controlling their home’s environment and safety.
