This System Quick Start Guide gives you quick information about how to start enjoying your Control4 system using OS 2.5 right away. Your Control4 dealer or installer may have given you this guide after he or she installed your system. If so, is the system working the way you expected it to? After you read through this guide along with the Control4 System User Guide (available on the Control4 website under Products) and learn how your system works, if you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact your dealer who may have some great suggestions to make your system perform even better and give you more options. In this guide, you’ll learn some basics about how to: • Set up your account and register your system. • Customize your system your way. • Use the Navigators (touch screens, remotes, MyHome app, TV screen, and so on) to manage lights, music, videos, the intercom, security, heating and cooling, and more. • Use 4Store to purchase and use apps on your system, sprinklers, garage door opener, fireplace, swimming pool, spa, and much more from a keypad or your Navigators. • Use the intercom to send and receive audio and video (requires at least two touch screens that support audio or audio and video intercom). • Monitor and automate your home remotely. Use this guide along with the Control4 System User Guide to learn about managing your Control4 system when you're away. • Control equipment and devices in specific rooms. The Navigators let you control devices in one room or the whole house. If your Navigator isn’t controlling the room you want, just change rooms (see “Change Rooms” later in this guide). • Manage up to eight devices per room. For example, you can manage your TV, receiver, tuner, DVD player, movie projector and screen, and more in the same room. See the Control4 System User Guide on the Control4 website at www.control4.com under Products (see “Additional Information” later in this document) to learn more about your system.
