Figuring out which technology is the best fit for your Highland Park, Illinois home can be an intimidating task. Whether you’re looking for a full smart home solution or an upgrade to your family room, you want an impressive system that’s reliable while still falling within your family’s budget. As the premier Control4 dealers in the area, one of our primary roles is to be your technology advisers. As part of that role, we'd like to introduce you to Control4's new EA series which gives you intuitive control of your favorite technology and entertainment. Check out our latest review to see some of the series’ best features.
Control of All Your Home’s Technology
The new EA series (which stands for Entertainment Automation) is focused on creating a unique entertainment experience while making your home smarter. It can control products capable of high-resolution audio and 4K video while managing your lights, thermostat, security and more from the same system. Your entire home can be controlled from a smart remote, touchpad or the Control4 mobile app.
Easy Access to All Your Favorite Entertainment
The EA Series makes it is easy to access your favorite entertainment. First, each system includes a top-of-the-line Control4 matrix switcher that lets you connect your favorite audio and video sources. Whether it’s a one room or full home solution, you can connect your Blu-ray player, media library, CD player or turntable.
The way we experience our favorite entertainment has changed in the past five years. Instead of physically purchasing movies or albums, we now use streaming services to access thousands of titles at once. Recognizing this growing movement, Control4 has expanded its ‘native' streaming services; those clients can use directly from their system without having to go through a third-party app. The offerings now include Pandora, TuneIn, Tidal, Rhapsody and Napster.
A Solution for Any Home
As Control4 dealers, depending on the size of your space and specific budget, we find the perfect scope for your project. Control4 has made this easier than ever with its three EA Series options: the EA-5, EA-3, and EA-1. These range from full home to one-room systems.
The EA-5 is a full smart home solution. It can connect hundreds of devices and distribute music and video to all you rooms. You also can manage all of your lights, smart locks, and thermostats. The EA-3 is optimal for high-resolution audio systems, covering up to three rooms. The EA-3 is a great solution for smaller homes with the ability to control UHD video components, audio, lights, shades, climate, and more.
Finally, the EA-1 is the Control4 starter kit. It provides a family room experience that gives you access to your favorite entertainment devices including game consoles, Blu-rays, cable boxes, and high-resolution streaming. As long as the technology is located within your smart hub’s reach, you can also manage your lights, locks and thermostat to create the perfect entertainment environment.
