How and Why do I need/want/use 'voice control' in my smart home?

Amazon Alexa can work with Control4(C4) to give an amazing experience for 'high-end' ($30,000+) AV and home automation systems

Google Home offers you many of the same (as above) functions for a cost from under $900...

How to decide?

1. Is your existing 'AV Room' running gear that costs more than $13,000? (If so, consider Control4 + Amazon Alexa)

2. Do you want your lights all running from an app on your phone/iPad? (If so, consider Control4 + Amazon Alexa)

3. Do you want to just add a few items at low cost to make your existing $3,200 TV and $2,400 HiFi do more and 'work as a smart system'? (If so, buy Google Home and Chromecast devices)


Things to consider:

A). Do you want to cast from Apple iPhone with Apple Music (paid streaming account)? (If so, you will need AirPlay as part of your AV system)

B). Will you be happy to spend $145 per year on a new music streaming service for your home? (If so, you may want to buy a Spotify account for only your Google Home devices to use - there are several reasons that a 'new account' can make your experience 'better')

C). Do you have children under the age of 15? (If so, you may want to include several Google Home mini devices for 'education and entertainment' - testing conducted by us, indicates that this will be the dominate 'family' platform [in our opinion].​​

3x Google Home mini

2x ChromeCast units

TOTAL Cost: (from) Under $300-AUD!!!


Any home owner that wants to have smart lighting with hard-wired dimmer wall switches should consider adding Control4 to any 'smart home' plans (new home and up-grading of an existing home) - this solution starts from $1,600 for one C4 'box' and 3x light switches. The install cost for a 'basic' C4 system like this would be $1,240+gst (AV King, 2-man team, 10HRs C4 'starter kit' install work).

Any home that only wants 'smart and voice' control functions on AV systems (TV & HiFi) should look at keeping the solution to just 'Google Home & Casting' devices.


NOTE On Smart lights: Philips sell many 'DIY' smart lighing solutions in Australia, this 'domestic grade' gear ends up costing as much or more than a C4 'hard wired' solution, when you look at 'total home and life of service' costs. We do not recommend 'DIY' smart lighting solutions.

Notes on C4 and Google Home; C4 can work with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, the reason we recommend Alexa with C4 is because the driver that works with it is ideal for business clients and domestic (the way Google Home works with C4 is not ideal for business use, in our opinion)



We recommend a Yamaha AV AMP with MusicCast for any AV system - the below is a good 'low cost - under $750*' system (2-Zone);


Below is the '2-video-zone' option - RRP: $1199;


You will also need Google Home and ChromeCast devices ($300~$900 approx cost for the average home)

[OR: See above for C4 items and costs]

AV King can book an in-home consultation to work out what systems will work best in your home, we advise you on how you can use you existing paid streaming services (Apple Music, Spotify, Netflix etc.) and we will help you plan how to add these items to your system that will best suit how you will want to use your new AV systems.

In-Home AV consultation cost: $220+gst (call (07) 3170-3706 to confirm we can service your location)
