 Control4 Apple Watch Smart Home Control

If you don't see the Control4 App on your Apple Watch, you can watch our video here where we show you how to install the Control4 App on your Apple Watch, or alternatively follow the troubleshooting steps listed below:

If the Control4 App doesn't appear on your Apple Watch:

  • Using your iPhone, open the Watch App
  • Scroll down to UNINSTALLED APPS
  • Find the Control4 App and tap INSTALL
  • Once installed, using your iPhone, open the Control4 App
  • On the Apple Watch, press the Digital Crown
  • Find the Control4 App and Tap to open

If the Control4 App is blank:

  • Using your iPhone, open the Control4 App
  • On the Apple Watch, press the Digital Crown
  • Find the Control4 App and Tap to open
  • The app on the Apple Watch will sync your project from the Control4 App on your iPhone

If the Control4 App says 'No Rooms Favourited':

Because of the size of the screen, the Apple Watch cannot display the pages that you see in the Control4 App for iPhone. The Control4 App on the Apple Watch will only show: 

  • Rooms that you have Favourited
  • Devices that have been Favourited
  • Media that has been Favourited

However, Favourited Media has to execute an audio stream for it to display on the Apple Watch. For Example, if you favourite an Album, a Track or a Playlist, those buttons will appear on the Apple Watch. Favorites that take you to a page will not show up on the Apple Watch. For example, if you Favourited the Playlist Page, or an Album Page, they will not show up on the Apple Watch. 

In order to enjoy the Control4 App on the Apple Watch when you are away from home, an active subscription to 4Sight is required. Contact our team today to take advantage of these latest features in your smart home.
