When Should You Choose One System Over the Other?
A home audio installation in your Carmel, IN living space lets you listen to your music and media in any area of your home you have high-end speakers placed. This means that with a press of a button, you can stream the latest album from your favorite artist or pump up a curated playlist of dance songs.
Oftentimes, homeowners struggle over what type of home audio system to bring to their properties. Sonos and Control4 both offer high-quality sound performance – but which of these systems is right for your home?
In this blog, we’ll take you on a tour of these two trusted brands so that you can decide which one is right for you and why. Keep reading below to learn more.
Sonos Pros & Cons
A Sonos sound system offers a quick, easy-to-install audio solution throughout your home. As a wireless system, you’ll find it more cost-effective if you only want to bring music to two or three rooms or areas in your house.
Their bookshelf speakers can fit inconspicuously in any form of shelving, on furniture, or cabinets. You won’t have to worry about them messing with your interior design or style – Sonos is meant to blend in seamlessly while delivering high-end audio to any part of your home you want.
And if you have high-fidelity in-wall or in-ceiling speakers already in place, you can connect these to Sonos’ wireless amplifier. This easily brings all your audio equipment together, making it a breeze to manage everything from one smart device or source with just one press of a button.
Sonos is the ideal choice if you only want an audio platform for your smart home. You can play songs from tons of music-streaming services, such as Spotify, Pandora, and much more – Sonos caters to those who cherish and love all kinds of music.
A Sonos system is budget-friendly if you’re only looking to bring sound distribution to a few rooms. If you want a fully-automated system or want audio in nearly every corner of your home – we recommend Control4 as an option.
Control4 Pros & Cons
While Control4 offers less music streaming services, it also brings a lot more to the table. For a complete home automation system, Control4 is the way to go. It not only has audio distribution but includes lighting control, motorized shades, home security, and other smart technologies for your property, all integrated under one system.
Control4 also supports high-resolution audio, while Sonos does not. So if you want to hear impeccable sound throughout your home, Control4 can deliver.
The system integrates with every part of your home and with other smart control systems. It makes operating your entire smart home easier than ever. It can even integrate with Sonos if you’re looking to keep just a few rooms with multi-room audio and still have an automation system for the rest of the house. This is a great way to combine both of these systems.
Control4 makes it less expensive to bring music to your entire property, while also including smart home automation for your space. However, if you’re not interested in adding smart security or climate control to your home, and only want whole home audio, then Sonos is often more cost-effective than choosing a full-on wired home automation system like Control4.
But for a whole home centralized system that simplifies tying in every smart technology and makes turning up the volume on a new album and lowering automated shades as easy as pushing one button – then Control4 is the solution for you.
