Control4 CA Automation Controller

Today see’s the launch of Control4’s new CA-1 controller, a new breed of processor purely aimed at the automation market rather than those with AV systems.  The emerging range of smart locks, thermostats, lights, and cameras available today have certainly raised consumer awareness for the promise of the smart connected home,” said Martin Plaehn, Chairman and CEO, Control4. “Homeowners as well as home builders and building developers are looking for more than a just collection of independent, smart devices. Our new CA-1 and industry-leading Control4 OS deliver that needed capability and customer experience – orchestrating all of the smart devices in a home.”

“The CA-1 utilises the industry-proven Control4 platform and broad device ecosystem so our dealers can immediately succeed with the skills, resources, and expertise that they already have,” added Plaehn. “This is not a dialed-down version of the Control4 OS nor a compromise; this is a new category of automation controller designed to meet the connected home demands of home builders, building developers, and their buyers.”

The Control4® CA-1 Automation Controller is the perfect entry point into Control4 automation built around security, comfort, and convenience solutions. It has built-in control for IP, ZigBee®, and serial devices, plus an internal slot for a Z-Wave Plus™ module (sold separately). It is designed for homeowners, builders, MDUs, and hotels that want smart experiences that include smart lighting, thermostats, door locks, cameras, sensors, shades, and more.The CA-1 is the foundation that makes smart products work together to deliver rich, orchestrated automation —the smart home experience homeowners truly want.
