Control4 C4-EA5 Smart-Home Entertainment Automation System Controller
The Control4 C4-EA5 Entertainment and Automation Controller is designed to deliver the ultimate smart home experience, featuring the highest-quality audio of the EA series and processing power to coordinate hundreds of smart devices. The EA-5 can automate sophisticated home theaters, complex interior and exterior lighting scenes, vital security and communications systems, and climate controls for multiple zones.
The EA-5 features five independent audio outputs—two digital coaxial, two RCA stereo analog, and one HDMI—with an audiophilegrade signal-to-noise ratio of 118dB. A built-in music server delivers immersive, multi-stream, high-resolution audio with five built-in simultaneous audio streams from your local music collection, a variety of streaming music services, or from AirPlay-enabled devices using native Control4 ShairBridge technology. Expand beyond five streams by including additional EA-5 or EA-3 Controllers.
Secure, wireless ZigBee communication; plentiful I/O including IR, serial, contacts and relays; and IP control enable connections to smart home devices such as thermostats, door locks, doorbells, cameras, security panels, sensors, lighting, shades, garage door controllers, irrigation systems, and much more. The sleek design, rack-mount form factor, and top-of-the-line connectivity make the EA-5 the ultimate foundation for any Control4 system and the platform to power the future of your smart home.
The controller is the brain of your smart home. It manages your home automation system, allowing the electronic devices in your home to work together—from lighting and security, to music and video, and pretty much anything else in between. No matter the size of your home, whether you’re automating a single room or a sprawling mansion, Control4 controllers are capable of powering your entire home automation system.
