You've probably heard some of the buzz about Control4 and how it can make your life easier.
This week Control4 release 2.10.3 this week, along with their very much anticipated new feature INTERCOM ANYWHERE! I know, I know. ‘Bout time. If you haven’t downloaded 2.10.3 and the Intercom Anywhere app yet to give this amazing new feature a try, you need to get on that right away. Intercom Anywhere is a GAME CHANGER for homeowners. Nobody else is doing this.
Highlights of Intercom Anywhere:
- DS2 or DS2 Mini can call mobile devices when doorbell is pressed.
- Mobile device doesn’t just see and communicate with whomever is at the door using Intercom Anywhere, but it can also have 2 custom buttons programmed to add additional control while you are on that call – like unlocking the door, turning on lights, etc. I personally have mine programmed to unlock the front door and to re-lock the front door.
- Mobile device can interactively 2-way video intercom with an individual touch screen in the home using Intercom Anywhere.
- Mobile device can ring all T3 touch screens in the home or initiate a custom call by selecting which touch screens to ring using Intercom Anywhere.
- Any T3 touch screen in the home can be used to video intercom with mobile device(s) using Intercom Anywhere.
Exciting times at Control4! And good things to come.
