Control4 Corporation, a global provider of smart home solutions, announced the immediate availability of the Control4 CA-1 Automation Controller. The CA-1 enables Control4 Dealers to provide an orchestrated smart home experience including lighting, temperature control, and security. At $350 U.S. MSRP, the new controller is designed to appeal to homebuilders, MDU developers, and hoteliers, giving them a way to differentiate with the inclusion of the most sought-after smart home experiences.
With the emerging range of smart locks, thermostats, lights, and cameras available today, consumer awareness regarding a smart living environment is higher than ever before. Consumers and industries, such as the hospitality industry, are looking for more than a just collection of independent, smart devices. The new CA-1 and Control4 OS deliver that needed capability and customer experience – orchestrating all of the smart devices in any given environment.
Tailored specifically for projects that desire smart lighting, comfort, and/or security, the CA-1 Automation Controller includes Ethernet, WiFi, Zigbee, and serial communication, leveraging the large Control4 database of thousands of third-party devices to ensure easy integration and interoperability. Using the optional Z-Wave module enables the CA-1 to be compatible with a selected set of Z-Wave control devices including door, window, water, flood, and temperature sensors, electrical outlets, and dimmer outlet modules. The CA-1 also features Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) so it can be installed virtually anywhere with a single network cable.
The Control4 CA-1 comes in white for discrete wall, closet, and shelving installations.
