10 Tips for Going Green
- Use a Control4 programmable Thermostat to implement temperature set-back
• Heating and cooling account for about 56% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes1
• By setting the thermostat back 10°–15°, homeowners can save about 5%–15%2

2 - Reduce maximum level on dimmable loads
Dimming the light this much: 25%, Saves this much energy: 20%, And extends your bulb life by: 4x

3 - Use sunset and sunrise events to turn outside lights on and off
• Saves energy by ensuring outside lights are turned off at sunrise

4 - Create a “green button” to put the house into “green mode”
• Link programming to a keypad button to increase thermostat setback level, dim lighting loads, and switch off wireless outlet modules to eliminate parasitic (standby) power drain
• Use LED color to indicate current level of power savings/consumption: red for high consumption, orange for moderate consumption, and green for low consumption
• A “vacation mode” can be programmed on another button to maximize savings when away from the home (set maximum thermostat setback, turn off all lights and appliances, arm alarm system, etc.)

5 - Use 4Sight Web Navigator to minimize energy consumption while away

• Lights can be turned off from anywhere in the world
• Thermostat can be set back while away and returned to normal programming when returning home

6 - Program bathroom lights and fans to turn off after a set time delay
• When the bathroom light and fan are turned on, set a 5 minute timer and turn them off automatically when the timer expires
• As an added bonus, a fan timer can be used as a reminder to finish showering, saving water and energy

7 - Tie outside lights to motion sensors to only turn on when needed
• Use motion sensors to program outside security lights to turn on only when needed

8 - Implement occupancy sensing using motion detectors
• Use motion sensors to turn off loads when rooms are vacant
• For convenience, use motion sensors and the system’s nighttime awareness to implement lighting pathways to safely light the way into the house

9 - Install motorized shades to block afternoon sun
• Use a temperature sensor or set programming relative to current sunset
• Reduces cooling bill and increases comfort

10 - Select energy-efficient components
• Control4’s 4-zone amplifier consumes only 2 watts in standby mode
