Who hasn’t dreamt of controlling the world with a mere flick of a button? Just like Adam Sandler, who in the movie “Click” is given a magical remote control that helps him skip the dull bits of life. That’s what the Intelligent Home Control system from Bang & Olufsen is more or less about – making everyday life easier and improving the quality of life.
One-click home cinema
Bang & Olufsen’s Intelligent Home Control system allows you to let the audio-visual experience follow you from one room to the next with the use of the same remote control. And with the same remote you can also mood change the rest of your home, including dimming the lights, drawing the curtains, controlling the temperature and activating the burglar alarm – and much more.
The first thing many people do when returning home is to deactivate the alarm. And when you’ve done so, the Intelligent Home Control system will then turn the lights and music on in your living room and kitchen. We all know how challenging it can be to tear the children away from TV at dinnertime, but the solution is simple: one click on your Bang & Olufsen remote and you’ve turned off the TVs in the children’s rooms. Then you’ll get their attention! When the kids are in bed you might want to watch a movie. Once again, one click on your remote and your living room will transform into a home cinema with dimmed lights and curtains drawn – it can even turn on the coffeemaker! The options are endless.
True to the Bang & Olufsen spirit, an intelligent home should be controlled by everyone living in it. Bang & Olufsen, the Danish home entertainment company, is celebrated for its smart and intuitive remote controls that are very user-friendly. The master control is primarily Bang & Olufsen’s Beo6, which along with the BeoLink and Master Link Gateway systems can be programmed to support your ideal way of living. If you own a smartphone, you can download the free BeoLink app for your Android, iPhone or iPod touch. And with that you get an added dimension – a whole new way of controlling your intelligent home.
