Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), announces the release of its Smart Home OS 3. The operating system is designed to unify hundreds of connected devices within the home, control them all from a single platform, deliver the personalization homeowners want, and facilitate the professional support smart home technology needs.

Control4 Smart Home OS 3 is designed to simplify the use of many connected devices throughout the home, exceeding expectations for how people live with technology.

“Every home is a mix of products from a variety of companies, a Smart Home OS embraces this reality, providing broad choice rather than creating a collection of tiny walled gardens that limit homeowners.”
— Charlie Kindel, Control4

According to the company, OS 3 offers more than a thousand new features and capabilities including fluid, refined, and intuitive interfaces providing one-touch control for favorite devices and scenes, at-a-glance views for security and lighting, one-touch music and video streaming, and more, all in a singular platform across Control4 and third-party products.

“The Control4 Smart Home OS is designed to remove complexity,” said Control4 Senior Vice President of Products and Services Charlie Kindel.

“Every home is a mix of products from a variety of companies, a Smart Home OS embraces this reality, providing broad choice rather than creating a collection of tiny walled gardens that limit homeowners.”

Control4 says OS 3 brings support for more than 13,500 third-party devices and 7,500 Control4 SDDP-embedded products. Built as smart home infrastructure, OS 3 scales to the needs of the family, whether it’s a single-room entertainment experience or a whole-home automation system in a mansion. 

The company says its Smart Home OS 3 enriches the real-life connected home experience. By aiming to encompass all of the home’s connected devices, it breaks through many of the barriers of smart home adoption.

“There is a delight—almost a sense of magic—when technology comes together and genuinely enhances our lives,” says Kindel.

“And right now, only Control4 Smart Home OS 3 can deliver on that promise for the home.”

Smart Home OS3 Requires Integrators

Achieving the elegance and sophistication homeowners want requires the experience of a professional installer. But only a family knows the nuances of their day-to-day lifestyles.

Control4 Smart Home OS facilitates professional installation to make sure everything works together, while empowering families to make their smart home experience uniquely their own.

“For more than 15 years Control4 has held steadfast in the belief that meeting the expectation of a true smart home requires professional installation,” says Control4 chairman and CEO Martin Plaehn.
