4 Things to Consider When Searching for a Control4 System Installer

When it comes to the best in home automation, Control4 is an industry leader.

Yet just like not all home automation products are created equal, not every Control4 dealer in the Chapel Hill area meets the high standards necessary to ensure your next project goes smoothly.

Before you install your Control4 system, read these tips on finding the right dealer and learn how Top Shelf Audio Video Solutions can help with your next project.





One indicator that a Control4 installation company is up to the demands of your project is if they are certified by CEDIA. CEDIA, the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association, is a trade group for businesses working in the home automation industry. If a company meets their rigorous standards, chances are they will be a good fit for you.

We at Top Shelf are proudly certified by both CEDIA and Control4 themselves. Our 20 years of experience and expert knowledge give us an edge over our competitors, as well as being valuable assets when it comes time to install a Control4 system in your home.



It should be obvious that if a Control4 dealer can’t or won’t show you their past work, they may not be the right choice. Promises are great, but you want a dependable dealer with a proven track record.

Make sure to ask about a dealer’s past projects, along with any testimonials or case studies they may have available to back up their boasts. We’re proud of the work we’ve done throughout the life of our business, and we’re more than happy to show you what we're capable of achieving. Our customers are very happy with our work as well.



Once you’ve committed to a project and settled on a design, make sure you get a straightforward estimate from your dealer. Because your system is unique to you, costs may vary from dealer to dealer, but there are still some indicators to be aware of.

You want to be sure the price quote includes every aspect of the project and doesn’t include hidden charges. Also, make sure you’re getting the most value for your money by comparing costs among dealers. A dealer that’s significantly cheaper than the competition may be skimping on quality, while higher costs don’t necessarily equate to better results.

We’ll be happy to dive into all of the costs associated with the project so that you have a thorough understanding of how our team will work to elevate your property.



The whole point of a Control4 system is to get the different parts of your home automation setup to interact with each other. To that end, you want a dealer who not only knows the ins and outs of Control4 and the products that can integrate with it, but also knows how to add any existing or future components into the system, as well.

The rapid pace of technological change means you’ll likely be switching out different devices as newer, more advanced models arrive. At Top Shelf, we stay on top of the latest trends and products, so we’ll be able to manage your system long after it’s been installed.



If you’re a homeowner in the Chapel Hill region of North Carolina and are looking for a home automation specialist to install a Control4 system, we’re your local experts.
