The rise of smart home technology has made it easier to stay connected to your home wherever you are in the world. Gain peace of mind knowing that your home is protected. Surveillance cameras, video-enabled intercoms, smart locks, and more give you confidence whether you are at home or away. In this blog, we break down our favorite technologies to use in your smart security system. Read on to learn more about the home surveillance solutions that will protect your property in Kansas City, MO.


ClareVision Cameras

ClareVision cameras can be used standalone or integrated with the Control4 ecosystem. The Performance Series ClareVision IP Turret Camera, or CLR-V200-4T28, features a 2.8 mm fixed lens, a built-in microphone, a 4MP Sony® Starvis™ image sensor capable of recording resolutions up to 2560 x 1440p at 30 FPS, and IR night vision for up to 25 meters. It also includes a 32 GB micro SD card for local video storage and supports up to 512 GB. Each camera also uses True WDR (wide dynamic range), which improves image quality under challenging light conditions, and 3D DNR, (multidimensional digital noise reduction) which improves image quality at night or in dimly lit places by reducing unwanted picture noise and compensating for image distortion due to color blending errors.

Chime Video Doorbell + Control4 Home Automation

Control4’s Chime video doorbell is the first video doorbell created specifically for the Control4 smart home. Using the power of Control4 home automation, the Chime video doorbell provides enhanced security and keeps you connected no matter where you are in the world. Chime features night mode to enable clear picture in low-light settings and a 180-degree field of view so you can monitor more than just the porch from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet.

If you are out of town for a long time, your Control4 system will protect your home. The Away mode can turn your lights on and off, open and close your shades, and more to make it appear as if you are home, deterring any potential burglars from targeting your property.

Intercom Anywhere

Control4 also includes Intercom Anywhere to improve communication inside and outside your home. Use your T4 touchpads, tablets, and smartphones to make video or audio calls to any screen. If you’re out of town and your kids aren’t answering their phones, simply call into any touchscreen from the app to video-connect.

For improved security, Intercom Anywhere makes it easy to know who’s at the door from any digital interface. When paired with the Chime video doorbell, Intercom Anywhere becomes your portal to the entryway and front yard to see, hear, and communicate with visitors, turn on the porch lights, unlock the door to let them in, and more.
