Salt Lake City - Control4 home-automation products will be included in the displays of MainStreet America, a 14-acre year-round home show scheduled to open in mid-October on the outskirts of Houston.
Promoted as the nation's first home product "theme park," MainStreet America will be outfitted with a two-story 44,000- square-foot guest center, cooking demonstration studio, a custom-home building office, a home remodeling center, mortgage financing services, an interior design studio, a specialty cafÃ© and a childcare area.
The Spring, Texas, venue will feature 12 fully furnished showcase homes equipped with home technology, appliances and interior dÃ©cor. Control4 systems will be featured in two of the homes: a 2,600-square-foot, three-story, contemporary, LEED Platinum-certified town home and a 6,000-square-foot Mediterranean-inspired home.
The Control4 systems will control lights, temperature, shades, door locks, music and entertainment from a smartphone.
Control4 is working with local integrator Randal Duncan of Data Smart to install the systems.
