SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Control4 (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading provider of automation and control solutions for the connected home, announced today that the Control4® App for the new Amazon Fire phone is now available in the Amazon Appstore. When the App is used with the Control4 4Sight service, homeowners can securely manage, access and control their Control4 automated homes via Fire phone from virtually anywhere in the world.
The Control4 App provides homeowners the ability to control their Control4 smart homes using both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Extending the powerful Control4 OS onto mobile devices gives customers total access and management of all connected systems and devices in their home, including thermostats, surveillance cameras, door locks, security systems, lighting, audio/video equipment and more. The Control4 App can also send alerts directly to Fire phone so that homeowners know when gates or doors are open, temperatures are too hot or cold, a water leak is detected and when other programmed events either occur or do not. With a Control4 system, homeowners are not only aware of the condition and state of their home, but they can make desired adjustments and stay in control.
With pre-built controls, Android API extensions and broad Android app compatibility, Amazon made it easy to tailor the Control4 app for Fire phone. In the future Control4 will also leverage the new Dynamic Perspective SDK and Firefly SDK to advance unique application development for Control4 Fire phone users.
“The Control4 mobile App gives our customers the peace of mind and freedom to access and control virtually every aspect of their smart home – no matter where they are,” said Control4 Chairman and CEO Martin Plaehn. "Amazon’s Fire phone is sure to excite many Control4 homeowners and we wanted to ensure that they had full compatibility the day it started shipping.”
“Control4 has great opportunities to use Fire phone’s unique capabilities to offer its customers a new kind of experience for people on the go,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Appstore. “We’re thrilled that Control4 has created an app for Fire phone. We think customers are going to love the experience.”
