One of the primary purposes of home automation is to make your connected home easily accessible and manageable. Streamlined accessibility and management are dependent on the smart home control system you use — and that’s why choosing the right hub is one of the most important decisions you can make.
At Argenta, we recommend Control4 home automation for multiple reasons. Control4 integrates with thousands of third-party devices, offers centralized control for all home technologies, and has tons of customization and personalization features. We also love that Control4 has multiple user-friendly interfaces that make home control effortless for everyone in the family.

One of the most convenient ways to control your home is with the Control4 app on your smartphone. Most people are already familiar with using and navigating apps on their phones, making the smartphone app a comfortable choice.
Control4’s app allows you to bring your home with you wherever you are — turn off a light, unlock a door, or adjust the temperature from the office, the grocery store, or halfway around the world.
Wireless in-wall and tabletop touchscreens offer the same user interface as the smartphone app but in a larger format. The newest versions of Control4’s touchscreens — the T4 line — have speedy processing capabilities, high-resolution screens, and robust microphones and speakers.
Wall-mounted touchscreens are a great option in common areas like the family room and kitchen so that the entire household can easily access scenes, entertainment options, surveillance, and the smart doorbell intercom. Tabletop touchscreens can live on countertops and tables within convenient reach when you need to change something in your home.
The Neeo Remote combines hard buttons with a graphical touchscreen for flexible whole-home control. The hard buttons on the remote are most effective for frequently-used actions — like adjusting the volume on the TV or skipping songs on a playlist — while the touchscreen interface can be used to dim the lights, manage room temperature and raise or lower motorized shades.
You can also program hard buttons on the remote to take you to your most-used places — one press can instantly pull up Netflix or cable on the living room TV.
Custom-configured, wall-mounted keypads are a fantastic option for quick control of your most-used scenes. In the living room or media room, buttons can be programmed for “Movie Night,” “Game Night,” “Party,” and “Quiet Time” scenes that instantly adjust the audio/video, lighting, shading, and climate settings for different activities. A keypad located in the bedroom with “Good Morning” and “Good Night” scenes can activate pre-set lighting, climate, and security settings throughout the entire house with one button press.
Control4 home automation has native integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for hands-free control of your home. Voice control is a convenient control solution when your hands are full or you don’t want to navigate through your Control4 dashboard to find what you want. A simple voice command can activate a scene, turn on lights, play music, or lock the front door behind you.
