Control4 add support for the Apple Watch
Everyone’s talking about wearable technology these days and it’s no exception within the home technology industry. Savant have had support for the Apple Watch for a few months now and Control4 are about to join the party.
With the latest update to the Control4 OS (version 2.7), you can now get push notifications to your Apple Watch. This allows you to receive proactive alerts on your mobile device or smart watch that inform you of important events happening at home, whether something is urgent and needs your attention immediately or just a simple status update to let you know things are safe and sound.
The push notifications you receive can be completely custom to your home and the unique needs of your family. Of the Draconian variety, you could get a push notification if the kids turn on the TV when they should be doing homework, or, of the more practical variety, if there’s a water leak in the utility room.
More examples may include:
- When the kids have returned safely home from school
- The garage door has been left open for a certain amount of time
- The wine cabinet has been accessed while you’re out
- An adjustment has been made to a room thermostat
- Motion has been detected in a certain room
- And many, many more…
See first-hand how these push notifications work in the video below.
