SnapAV has launched the Neeo Remote for Control4 – a touchscreen remote that delivers control of home entertainment experiences through the Control4 Smart Home OS 3 platform. Neeo is the first Control4 handheld remote to combine the benefits of hard buttons and a touchscreen.
Using the remote, homeowners will have fast access to the things they use most, such as their favorite streaming services, most-watched TV stations, playlists, room-level or household-level smart home scenes.
Control4 Smart Home OS 3 unifies connected devices from major brands, weaves them together for simplicity, and provides a singular voice, touch, and hand-held interface for the whole home. Family members in a Control4 OS 3 powered home have one-touch control and at-a-glance views of virtually every device through voice with Alexa and Google Assistant, the Control4 App, a Control4 Touchscreen, a TV on-screen display and with the Neeo Remote.
“The modern smart home needs simple interfaces to start a movie, select a playlist, or lock a door. Neeo was expertly designed to be beautiful, and with Control4 OS 3, it’s also the easiest way for a family to enjoy entertainment in their homes,” said Charlie Kindel, SnapAV Chief Product And Technology Officer. “Neeo is a reflection of our obsession for creating the most elegant and simple interfaces for the refined smart Home.”
Control4 OS 3 personalisation automatically extends through to Neeo. Swiping right onNeeo shows video sources such as a Blu-ray player, video game system, Dish Network, and more. Neeo gives homeowners one-touch icons for the channels they watch most and an on-screen keypad to type in a channel number directly.
“Neeo is as easy to use as it is beautiful. It’s nice to have all our favorite stations just right there on the main screen and easily accessible. And, unlike the pile of remotes we’ve accumulated, it’s certainly not an eyesore – it’s actually a piece of technology that I don’t mind lying around for guests to see. I’m sure it will even be a conversation starter for many of our friends and family when they come to visit,” said Jennifer Reed, Control4 beta customer.
Neeo was designed to strike a balance between professional installation andhomeowner flexibility. New customers can find a local Control4 Pro by visiting a Control4 showroom. Control4 Certified Showrooms will have the new Neeo Remote on display and available to demo on #C4Yourself Day on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 4 pm to 8 pm local time. Customers who have Control4 systems running OS 3 can order their Neeo from their Control4 Pro and self-install without a visit from the Pro.
Neeo is available exclusively through Control4 Smart Home Pros. The Neeo Remote for Control4 is $600 U.S. MSRP, while the Control4 SR-260 Remote continues to be available for $330 U.S. MSRP.
The Neeo was meticulously designed by Swiss engineers to set a new standard for luxury smart home interfaces. Neeo is built from machined aluminum designed to protect the edge-to-edge touchscreen, and images and icons on the three-inch, high-resolution, LCD touchscreen are crisp and bright to enable quick one-touch navigation. Neeo is available in either silver or black finishes and ships with a charging station. Neeo lasts up to five days on a charge.
