Control4 History

Control4 was born out of a passion to make home control an affordable option for everyone. The company founders recognized that while the category was growing, the market was only targeted at customers building multi-million dollar custom homes or doing major reconstruction on existing homes. As veterans in the home-automation industry, they believed homeowners should have a more affordable way to automate existing homes, and without the headaches and prohibitive costs of a major remodel. Additionally, they wanted solutions to be "grow as you go" so that customers could easily add new products over time, as budget allowed. In 2003, with better wireless standards and the advent of Internet Protocol (IP) technology, the team saw an opportunity to make this vision a reality.
