It was only a matter of time before Snap One “saw the light” and made a deeper push in the hot lighting control category. Building off its existing Control4 ecosystem, Snap One has announced a new line of Control4 Contemporary Lighting faceplates and buttons that seamlessly integrates with the Control4 system.
According to Control4 product manager Jeff Thomas, the new line provides Control4 Partners more options to ensure premium aesthetics for all home designs and decor.
“Control4’s wired and wireless lighting solutions enable our Partners to add lighting to Control4 projects with ease and assured compatibility. The new Contemporary Lighting line reflects new design standards while adding versatility to Partners’ toolkits,” says Thomas. “With hundreds of SKUs in the new lineup, Control4 Partners can now offer customers an ideal solution to fit any decor or lighting need.”
Available in 10 colors with clear, backlit engraving, Control4 Contemporary Lighting, the modern design aims to complement both the smart home or business environment. In addition to the new appearance, the new keypads, dimmers and switches also provide a more tactile response and improved longevity, according to the company.
The Control4 system allows property owners to customize lighting control and automation. The system has the ability to schedule lights to turn on and off at specific times, link lights to events such as doors opening or surveillance camera motion detection, and create custom scenes for specific interior needs such as dimming to watch a movie.
The Control4 Contemporary Lighting line works with existing Control4 lighting for a fast and easy system upgrade. Integrators simply remove the existing keypad buttons and faceplates and replace them with the Contemporary color change kits and faceplates. Like Control4’s existing lighting products, Contemporary Lighting keypads also enable simple control of systems beyond lighting, including shades, security, music and more.
Snap One will continue to sell all existing lighting products. The Contemporary Lighting line launched first in the U.S. and Australia with 330 SKUs for 120V, 240V and 277V applications, while 120 international SKUs and additional U.S./Australia products will be available in Q4 2021. All new products feature Control4’s proven back-end dimming and switching technology currently employed in all 3rd Generation in-wall switches, dimmers and keypads.
