Stay Informed with Podcasts and Audiobooks
While a Control4 multiroom audio system is mostly used for music, it also supports your favorite internet radio stations, millions of podcasts, and audiobooks. If you’re having trouble keeping up with the latest headlines or prefer listening to written stories, select your local radio station, Audible app, or Apple Podcast app and pipe your content throughout the house as you carry on with everyday tasks.
Wake Up Your Home with Music
Smartphones allow you to choose any tune for an alarm sound, eliminating the jarring beeps of a traditional alarm clock. Still, a Control4 multiroom audio system presents even more benefits as an alarm clock by allowing you to play music not just in your bedroom but throughout the home so that your playlist can follow you from the bathroom to the kitchen to the kids’ rooms. When you’re ready to turn off the music, it’s as easy as a quick voice command or tap on your smartphone.
Never Miss a Play
Hosting a sports event or viewing party at home? You and your guests may occasionally get up from the home theater or media room to grab a drink, chat with friends, or use the bathroom—taking eyes off the action. Rather than missing a play, follow along with your ears by connecting the TV audio to your Control4 whole-home audio system. Pipe TV audio to the kitchen, patio, and anywhere else people may gather throughout the event. Your guests will be grateful and impressed!
Sleep Better with Ambient Noise
Sleep is vital for human health, but too many of us have trouble maintaining a steady sleeping schedule and wake up feeling groggy. Studies show that ambient music can improve your quality of sleep. Use your Control4 multiroom audio system to schedule calming instrumental music or nature sounds to stream quietly overhead in your bedroom and the kids’ bedrooms before and while you and your family sleep. Your system can power off the music a few hours later or keep playing into the morning.
