Traditional radio

Granted, Traditional radio is a little old school but is still an easy way to enjoy music, whatever your age or favourite genre. Control4 has made integrating traditional radio into the systems effortless, meaning you can enjoy both AM and FM radio with ease. Simply, select the Tuner icon on the Control4 app.

 

 

CDs

If you were born before the year 2000, you’ll probably still have a CD collection or even a vinyl record collection! While neither of these are the most high-tech option, people still love them and so can be used with a Control4 system.

 

You can easily integrate CDs into your smart home system, allowing your entire family access. Control4 offers a CD changer device, so it’s worth asking your dealer for more details. When you’re ready, there are step-by-step instructions on using your CD changer to enjoy your favourite music.

Listening to satellite radio from your Control4 system has never been easier, thanks to the Control4 Multi-Tuner. As the name suggests, satellite radio uses modern technology to broadcast stations from all over the world. Unlike traditional radio, there’s no interference.

 

There are thousands of stations available, compared to the handful available with traditional radio. One of several Control4 music services available, satellite radio offers many benefits.

 

 

TuneIn

Another one of the Control4 music services you can access is TuneIn, which brings together live sports, music, news, and podcasts. With your Control4 system, TuneIn comes installed. Use your MyHome app to listen to your favourite TuneIn stations or shows.

 

TuneIn for the UK market isn’t as good as it used to be. The BBC removed their radio stations and podcasts from the service. They were also sued by the Music industry over multi-region rights. However, it’s worth trying the free TuneIn plan and upgrading if it makes sense.
