Control4 has now launched integration with the Amazon Alexa range of products – This will give homeowners the convenience of total home automation through voice commands via Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Fire TV.
Total Smart Home Control
With Control4 you can already command many aspects of your home technology in simple ways:
- Audio and visual control – listen and watch what you want, wherever you want
- Lighting – create a different mood in every room
- Heating – be more efficient and control the temperature of your home
- Security – Make sure your property is secure from anywhere in the world
Setting the scene
Now with the Control4 Smart Home Skill and Amazon Alexa these can be controlled hands-free. What’s more, it enables you to create your own ‘scene’; pre-set a lighting, sound and temperature ambience and activate them all with a simple description. An example of the is could be “Alexa, turn on ‘relaxing time’” and the pre-set lowered lighting, closed blinds and soft jazz would all be automatically activated.

Enjoy the immersively rich and atmospheric sound that only a top-end Dolby Atmos surround system can deliver
Introducing the new Dolby Atmos range
Experience audio in three dimensions with Dolby’s new Atmos system. By using speakers in front, above and behind the listener, sound moves in line with the visual images. Be transported into your favourite film – hear planes fly overhead, rain drumming on the rooftops and birds flap their wings – be carried into the film, with sound that seems so real you can almost feel it.
How does it work?
Dolby Atmos delivers sound from all angles – but what really turns normal sound into a 3D experience are the overhead or upward firing speakers which bounce sound off the ceiling. The other aspect which makes this sound system truly unique is the way it delivers sound. Most traditional systems mix sounds together, with Dolby Atmos, individual sound entities called audio objects are used. This means that each sound can be placed precisely – from a door slamming to a bird singing, to make you feel like you’re right at the centre of the action.
Installation is key
To get the best audio experience sound levels need to be carefully blended and speakers installed in exactly the right place. That is why it is so important to use fully-trained and experienced installers. Chris Lewis Smart Home has been installing home automation technology for over eight years. We are constantly re-training and learning – we know how to install all the latest and most up-to-date equipment.
