Control4 introduce Intercom Anywhere
Control4 has announced the availability of the new Control4 Intercom Anywhere, including a new app for iOS and Android mobile devices.
With Intercom Anywhere, Control4 homeowners can receive video intercom calls from a Control4 Door Station, allowing them to see and communicate with visitors at the front door or gate, whether they’re home or away. Homeowners will also be able to see who’s at the door prior to answering the call, and can activate a home scene such as turning on lights, opening the gate, or unlocking the door or garage in response to who has arrived. Homeowners can also quickly activate alerts such as sounding an alarm, locking all doors, or turning on all interior and exterior lighting for extra safety precaution.
“Intercom Anywhere adds compelling everyday utility and capability to Control4 smart homes — elevating the “smart doorbell” through a comprehensive in-the-home/away-from-the-home peace-of-mind solution that unifies access control, video surveillance, security, and interactive communication,” says Control4 chairman and CEO Martin Plaehn.
Control4’s Intercom Anywhere places homeowners in control with an app that’s designed to launch and connect quickly. By providing video previews from the Control4 Door Station, homeowners can ignore unwanted calls, answer calls from a welcomed guest, or accept a delivery even when they’re miles away.
Control4 Intercom Anywhere supports additional customisable programming so for example, while in an Intercom Anywhere call, the user can turn on lights, unlock the door, open the gate or garage, disarm or trigger the alarm, or any other action enabled by the Control4 automation system.
The Intercom Anywhere app can be downloaded today from the Apple store or the Google Play store.
