Control4 Corporation 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, enabling them to see and communicate with visitors at the front door or gate, whether they’re home or away. In addition, homeowners will see who’s at the door prior to answering the call, and can simultaneously 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 additional safety measures.
Modern video doorbell products allow the use of mobile phones to see and talk to visitors at the door, but Control4 Intercom Anywhere supports additional customizable programming. 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 uniquely enabled by the Control4 automation system.
Control4 Intercom Anywhere also provides new ways to communicate among family members. Family members can make calls from Control4 touchscreens within the home to a family member’s mobile phone or vice versa. The babysitter or child not answering the landline phone at the house? Use Intercom Anywhere to dial directly to any or all Control4 touchscreens for a video call to get connected, fast. Want to call the family to dinner? One tap and you can broadcast the call to dinner throughout the house.
The Intercom Anywhere app can be downloaded today from the Apple store or the Google Play store. To activate and use Intercom Anywhere, a home must have Control4 installed, running the latest Control4 OS (v 2.10.3), and also have an active 4Sight subscription ($100 USD Annual MSRP).
