Savant Systems recently entertained thoughts of an offering to the public of their company. This would make it only one of the two publically traded business to focus only on Home Automation systems. Control4, the other company Control4 is publically trading (CTRL) from 2013. It offers an incredible range of automation products and experienced installation crews that install everything if you're confident about working on it yourself. A marked departure from Apple's HomeKit is taking and Home Depots "Wink" system, Control4 has their own controllers, touch screens, shades, thermostats and so on.. Instead of try to reach out and set up communication with multiple vendors , and to accommodate an ever growing and changing series of protocols for communication and control hubs, Control4 just brings their own brand of devices into play , allowing for a totally customizable package system. The possibility of purchasing your own components and then integrating your home theater as well as your audio or climate system to their controllers allows you to use them just like any other system, you can decide the amount you'll add to begin with. If money is tight invest in a climate control system with touch screen, a controller and hub. The app is part of it and provides you with full control over your HVAC locally and remotely and obviously with occupancy sensors, or scheduling a better handle on keeping your home at the ideal temperature dependent on who's there.

Music systems are difficult, keeping track of an electronic library, wanting to stream from multiple sites or simply wanting to listen to different music in different places. Control4 has made it easier through the creation of a digital music server and an amplifier that can provide up to 8 zones and stream music from all your favourite sites and keep your entire library. You can access it from any smartphone with control4's Control4 app or central control panel. Control4 can manage security systems, audio Lighting, as well as Security systems in addition to whole home climate control as well as video. It's not that you can't perform any of these things with Wink or HomeKit or Iris, it's just that when you're able to afford it, the entire system are designed to connect seamlessly without needing to patch or play around or search for devices that need specialized controls. If the Savant IPO does happen this year, it'll be another significant step towards mainstream home automation. It will continue to generate attention to companies that provide automation components and systems at a main stream cost.
