Smart TVs were all the rage this year again at CES. Larger TVs with more powerful processors and better smart home features were once again unveiled. One of the biggest show stoppers was Samsung tile TV. This television allowed consumers and businesses to create any size of TV they wish by assembling tiles together to create a larger, seamless display.
After this year’s CES it might be work considering upgrading your smart TV, especially if you have a goal planned to retrofit your home into a smart home. A smart TV fits perfectly into that plan. Let me explain why.
High-end luxury home automation kits like Control4 are capable of taking all of the pieces in your smart home and combining them together to create one unified system. Off-the-shelf products make achieving such unification and ease of use very difficult. Products like Control4 bring together these devices so that your smart TV can communicate with your security camera and your smart lighting.
Imagine a world where your doorbell rings and you can ask your house, “Who’s there?” without having to walk to your front door. How cool would it be to be able to ask your house to switch to movie mode and your lights slowly dim while your projector warms up and your screen rolls down from the ceiling? These kinds of actions are becoming more of a commonplace within the home now that better smart home devices are entering the market.
Of course, much like you would need an electrician to install new wiring in your home you’ll need a Control4 dealer to create a smart home strategy that makes sense for you. Not all smart home strategies work for everyone. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but a good Control4 dealer can easily combine your home security, your smart TV, your smart lighting, and any voice-controlled devices into an easy-to-use package that anyone can understand.
Since CES unveiled new 8K panels with amazing picture quality and super high resolutions, it might be time to start thinking about making that smart TV upgrade. Though 8K TVs were largely scoffed at a few years ago, nor do we have much in the way of 8K content, these TVs now come in amazingly large sizes with really good upscale engines. That means if you hang that 80” TV on your wall. 4K content will still look amazing because of how that 8K TV is able to expand that picture. If you want to watch your security camera through that 8K TV, too, you’ll be able to read the license plate from that person that picked up your daughter 20 minutes ago without any problem.
