I love how much you can control with your phone lately, makes me feel that I am not the only one who leaves the house and wonders if I remembered to lock the front door! We actually offer several security systems as well that can be controlled with a smart phone. This way if you leave your house or even leave the country and forgot to Arm your security system you can arm it from your smart phone!

Control 4 is a great product, but there are other options for home automation, such as Elan and Crestron
