Control4 gives homes a personal touch far beyond throw pillows and new paint. The company makes and sells home automation systems that allow users to control music, video, lighting, temperature, and security systems with the touch of a button on a wall panel or mobile device. For example, a homeowner may program their system to lock the doors, close the blinds, and turn on the alarm when they leave for work, and open the garage door and adjust the thermostat to a particular temperature upon arrival. Control4 systems are only sold through authorized dealers and distributors who design a custom solution for each home (and to a smaller extent, businesses.) The company went public in 2013, raising $64 million in its IPO.
