What Does a Control4 Dealer Do?

Partnering with a Pro is the Way to Go

What Does a Control4 Dealer Do?

For anyone considering a new home automation system, you can’t do better than Control4. Control4 is a leading automation system for homes and businesses worldwide—and founded here in Salt Lake City! Control4 connects all your devices into one system, from lighting to audio to security. From there, you’ll easily control your devices through the C4 app, remote, or customized wall keypads. 

The possibilities are endless with Control4. Pre-programmed scenes may automatically raise your blinds in the morning, adjust your smart lights to the perfect color temperature in the afternoon, and play your favorite tunes over multi-room speakers. 

But Control4 is not a DIY solution. You’ll need a certified Control4 dealer to design, program, and install your smart home. You may be wondering, why do I need to work with a dealer? And what do they do exactly? We’ll explain what it’s like to partner with a C4 integrator in your Park City, UT home.
