Studies show that burglars are much less likely to enter homes that are occupied which is one of the greatest strengths of having a Control4 home automation system installed, as you can create fake scenes to appear that you are home, with their ‘Mockupancy’ feature.


Mockupancy allows you to programme the interior and exterior lights throughout the house to turn on and off, just as they would if you were really home. Would-be intruders move on thinking your home is occupied and off limits. You can even alternate lights and blinds, and even televisions, in a random fashion so that your home simulates the activity of a family, providing additional security and added peace of mind.


Plus, with Video Monitoring, via the Control4 App, you can easily monitor the cameras inside or outside your home. Remotely view live security footage straight from your mobile device, and take command of your home, whether you are there or not.


From just one room to the most expansive of houses, Control4, distributed exclusively by Homemation in South Africa, has the home automation solution that will give your home the smart it deserves. Stream audio, turn up the heat, lock the doors and arm your alarm, all with your voice, remote control, tablet or smart phone, from where you are in the world.
