The JCL Automation demonstration home is a complete "smart home" design centered around a Control4 solution for interior and exterior lighting, thermostat settings, and a digital entertainment center featuring a Studio Movie Server. This home also includes a surveillance camera system from ICRealtime linked to the Control4 system via the Home IP network to complete an integrated whole-house automation solution.
Control4 also provides the capability to control installed devices with your home PC with the Composer Home Edition software. This includes remote access to your devices over the Internet using Web Navigator. A screenshot of the home overview page in Web Navigator is shown below.
Our demo home is located in the resort community of Trilogy Vistancia. Our "smart home" is open 7 days a week for viewing and demonstration depending on Consultant availability. To make an appointment just contact us by phone or email.
However, if you're unable to visit us in person and you have a strong interest in seeing the Control4 Web Navigator interface, please contact us to request a user login for our demo home. You will be expected to be a courteous user and at a minimum turn off any device you activate before logout or exit.
For another option for a do-it-yourself "smart home", consider our HomeSeer v2.4 solution. Homeseer is capable of controlling a variety of sub-systems via plug-in modules added to the base software and runs on a Windows PC.
