Control4 Home Automation Review
Prior to my exodus as owner from MissingRemote, I had delved into the Home Automation world. My experiences never got very far but I had some minor improvements. Gizmodo has a $5,000 package from Control4 up for review if you are not in the DIY mode.
Control4 is a more entry-level solution to home automation, and they compete mostly with Crestron’s Prodigy line, which is also targeted towards lower-budget installs. “Lower budget” is a relative term, obviously, since the starter system I reviewed goes for about $5000, including cost of installation.
