The CORE Series Processors Offer Faster Speed and Better Performance
In this, the second of our three-part series on the latest Control4 upgrades, we’re going to take a deep dive into the Control4 Controllers—the brain of your smart home. When Control4 came out with their OS 3.3.0 software upgrade in 2022, they also came out with the new CORE series processors—the CORE 1, CORE 3, and CORE 5 Controllers.
CORE 1 is the basic, entry-level controller and has the power to control a single room. It includes wireless Zigbee control for smart locks, lights, thermostats, and more. CORE 3 takes it up a notch and can control a smaller townhome or large garage.
Core 5 is the powerhouse and Control4’s main controller for an entire home. It offers numerous improvements, including speed and performance. So let's explore what this next-generation controller offers homeowners in Park City, UT and the surrounding areas.
Core 5—The Ultimate Smart Home Controller
CORE 5 has the processing power to manage a 10,000-square-foot home, controlling all of your connected devices. It offers the ultimate experience in Control4 home automation and can deliver the performance and speed needed for Control4’s beautifully designed and simple-to-use interactive on-screen menu. With one touch, users have instantaneous control of their lighting, climate, audio, video, and security systems, including video surveillance monitoring.
In addition to controlling hundreds of smart devices, it also automates complex systems like audio-video distribution, the climate in multiple zones, interior and exterior lighting, and all-important security. Furthermore, the 4K on-screen menu offers effortless control of your entertainment sources and scene selection.
For those unfamiliar with a Control4 smart home, preset scenes allow users to manage multiple systems with one touch. For example, we may program an "Away" button that our clients press on an in-wall keypad as they leave their homes. This activates a sequence of events, including turning the lights off, adjusting the temperature, locking the doors, and arming the alarm.
