Open garage doors or an electric gate, or use the app to unlock a deadbolt on a door.

Good system if you know how to use it


I’ve had this system for many years now. It has always been functional for me with no problems throughout the years. If you know how to use they system, it’s works the right way. Now, I am very good with technology so that might be why I don’t have many problems. But it defiantly is not hard to figure out. And yes, the app is a little out dated and could use an upgrade. It still is a well functioning system and controls most of my home.

Buggy unstable piece of garbage


We have had this system now for several years. The app is a complete mess. Frequently it tells us it cannot connect to the system. Other times it gives us other subscription errors even though we have everything we need. Occasionally I can fix the issues by uninstalling and reinstalling. We also use The Alarm. Com app with our home security system instead of Control4 and it works perfectly all the time. The Control4 app is absolutely horrible. It is by far the most buggy app I have on any of my Apple devices, by far.

Worst App Developer Apple Allows


I don’t know how Apple continues to keep Control4 on as a supplier since they are unwilling or unable to keep an app up to date even as they charge users $99 on the side to own it.

Users also need to pay a local company to install the app to work in their system. Total cost to have this out of date app that won’t work under iOS 11 is right around $300.

Look. Control4 is a racket. They continue to overcharge and under deliver. It’s not automation for the rest of us.

It’s actually easier to create your own home automation from scratch using any system other than Control4 which has incorporated the worst features of the low end systems with the worst features of their competitors.

All of this packaged into one unusable yet expensive system that lags behind real technology by a year or more. I’ve spent way too much on this dead end technology so that you don’t have to.
