Master Your Home Theater System

Control4 Makes It Easy

Master Your Home Theater System

How many remote controls do you have for your home theater?  Do you have an AV receiver?  Does your TV have multiple devices like a cable box, Blu-ray player, and a Roku?  Or do you have them connected to your AV receiver?  Do you have some devices connected to the TV and some connected to the AV receiver?  Do you find it hard to switch back to watching TV after viewing a show from another source?

So many questions, and so many remotes.  The truth is you may not find it all that hard to manage three remote controls for sitting down to watch a movie, but other people in your family may find it confusing.  Some of the confusion may depend on your equipment and how it is set up. Your video signal may be routed to a TV, and the sound gets routed separately through an AV receiver or some other sound system.  It can get quite confusing to change sources, and different sound modes that are optimized for movies or  TV only add to the complexity. 

Take it a step further, and things can get confusing for anyone.  What if you have converted a room in your Mesa home to house your home theater system, creating a wonderful entertainment escape from hot summer weekends and chilly winter nights in Arizona?  You may have a large flat panel TV for watching sports and use a projector for screening movies.  You have a multichannel sound system, and perhaps a cable box, streaming player, the latest 4K Blu-ray player, and a PS4 or Xbox One gaming console.  And you have lights that you want to adjust to the right level depending on the activity.  How many ways do you want to control all that? 

A Control4 solution can help tame your home theater system, managing every piece of AV equipment, as well as things like lights, shades, and temperature.  Read on for a simpler way.
