Ratings and Reviews
Does Job, Could Be Nicer
The iPhone app does the job - controls everything fairly easily. My main frustration is each time you leave the app, maybe to pop over to email or texting for a moment, then come back, you have to wait while it reloads all the system settings again and then you have to navigate from the home screen back to where you left off. If you are using the app as a TV remote control, it’s a bit frustrating to have to wait and then make several clicks to get to the specific TV remote screen you need just to adjust volume or pause the show or whatever.
Developers are slow to make improvements
My installer is fantastic and good at maintaining my system but the developers backend is slow for improvements. I wonder if they really test their own product sometimes prior to release. I upgraded to version 3 last summer with the understanding that all functionality was not up to par. I was fine with that but come on, some basic things like all of my rooms automatically set to mute when I open that room but it’s not muted should be obvious. I have to click to unmute to clear it while sound still plays, then when I click volume again it will mute. Symbology for custom buttons is poor and non existent after a long wait. Page up and down buttons way too small and needs to utilize more real estate to be useful. There are other needed improvements but I do not want to be completely negative. I’ve been a client for 8+ years and think the move to version 3 is the right upgrade and can see the potential with the UI and custom ability of the functions for homeowners is there and I know it will come. However for the cost I’ve paid over the years I’m expecting a more robust version patches and bug fixes than what I have seen to date.
I’ve had Control4 in my house for over 10 years, and honestly I’d hate to live without it. This new update makes life even easier and more convenient.
The intercom feature is a favorite. I use it many times a day to communicate with my kids if they are in a different part of the house, and also when I’m out running errands I can check in with them even using the intercom since they don’t have cell phones. It’s great to be able broadcast throughout the house or call individual rooms.
I like being able to see who is at my front door and to communicate with them without opening the door or even being at home.
I love being able to turn all the lights off at the same time, or create different light scenes for waking up or at bedtime.
Perhaps it makes me a bit lazier, but I prefer to say Control4 allows me to use my time more efficiently. Great job on this newest update.
