Home Theater with Multi-Room Music, Lighting and Climate Control
Below is a schematic picture of an expanded Control4 home control system with the ability to control any Blu-ray Player in the home theater room plus stream digital audio to 4 other rooms in the house from it's USB-attached storage. This system also controls all lighting in the theater room with a wireless outlet switch and 4 wireless adaptive phase dimmers plus the room temperature with a wireless thermostat. Control4 products connect via a home network using standard Ethernet or 802.11b/g/n wireless Ethernet connections. Control signals from the System Remote use Zigbee (802.15.4) mesh networking for reliable command transmission between devices. This handheld remote allows you to easily navigate the on screen interface to watch a movie, select a favorite TV channel, or launch your favorite music playlist, and will replace the 4 or more handheld device remotes you may now be using to control your entertainment complex.
The above system includes a Home Controller HC-800 with System Remote Control SR-150, two Ethernet Speaker Points, two Wifi Speaker Points, and a complete array of user interface devices from the System Remote to the 7" Portable Touch Screen with Camera in the Kitchen. The home theater room also includes 4 new Adaptive Phase Dimmers that automatically detect the lighting load type, a Wireless Outlet Switch, and a Wireless Thermostat. The Speaker Points receive the digital audio transmission from the HC-800 Controller and convert the digital stream to analog stereo outputs for speakers located in the 4 other rooms. User control in the other four rooms includes a second SR-150 Remote, a LCD Keypad, a 5" In-Wall White Touch Screen, and 7" Portable Touch Screen with Camera providing complete independent control over the audio selection of each room. Allowing a different music selection to be played in each of 4 rooms while a Blu-ray movie is being simultaneously viewed in the theater room.
The rear of the HC-800 Controller shows the connectivity supported by this system, which includes:
- 1 Analog Audio In (RCA), 2 Analog Audio Out (RCA), and 1 Digital Audio Out - Coax (RCA)
- 1 Component video and 1 HDMI (audio/video) output for the HDTV on-screen display

- ZigBee Pro (802.15.4) with external ZigBee reverse SMA connector
The HC-800 will stream digital audio simultaneously to each of the 5 rooms controlled by this system. Media Composer software for Windows is provided to enable downloading and cataloging a complete music library with cover art, and then creating custom playlists for every occasion and mood. The serial inputs allow the HC-800 to monitor the zones and arm/disarm any supported security system with a serial output. The contact input and relay outputs can be used to control a motorized screen, window covering, or any other device accepting a contact closure input.
The ultimate flexibility and power of the Control4 Home Controller HC-800 will enhance your home entertainment experience like no other product in it's price range, and it's versatility allows you to control your home theater, multi-room music, lighting, and climate as shown above with expandability to handle much more. Providing a true wireless smart home solution integrated with your data network.

But, if you take advantage of the MyHome device license included with the HC-800 to replace the LCD keypad and 5-inch touch screen by using your own iOS or Android devices.

However, if you already have speaker wire installed in your new or existing home to 4 rooms, the new Control4 4 Zone Matrix Amplifier can be used instead of speaker points to connect the room speakers to the system.
