Control4 Makes Managing Your Appliances Easier Than Ever

Sub-Zero refrigerators, Wolf ovens and Sub-Zero wine storage units can be integrated into Control4’s home networks, so homeowners can manage their appliances through a Control4 system.

Homeowners can also automatically adjust settings to accommodate specific lifestyle needs, such as increasing ice production prior to entertaining a large number of guests. Users have the option to receive alerts that allow them to manage and monitor the energy usage of the appliances. Homeowners can even send energy deferral requests or general service requests through their Control4 system directly to Sub-Zero and Wolf.

When integrating select Wolf products into their Control4 system, homeowners can be notified when pre-heat is complete, view the current oven temperature, receive alerts when the timer is almost finished, and access meat temperature from the internal meat thermometer.

With the Control4 platform, Sub-Zero wine storage unit owners can monitor their unit’s door status and even receive mail or text message alerts when a door opens or closes. Because temperature and humidity are critical elements to storing the perfect bottle of wine, collectors are assured that their wine unit door has been properly shut and air is not entering or exiting. These alerts also provide a new level of monitoring should anyone enter the wine unit without permission.
