Test Report: Control4 HC-250 Controller Page 4

Bottom Line

Even when judged as “just” a smart remote control, the HC-250 is a terrific single-room solution that offers a ton of features. Wand, touchscreen, iOS, Android, PC, or Mac control? Take your pick. And between its IR, serial, and IP control capabilities, the HC-250 is ready to handle most systems going forward. Add in its ability to stream music and play Internet radio, and what’s not to like?

But where the HC-250 really distinguishes itself from other basic control solutions is that it can also serve as the backbone of a powerful home automation system. An HC-250 user can start small and then continue to grow the system as their wants and needs change. Now that is control.
