Control4 Announces New Consumer Financing Options to Its US Dealer Network

Through a partnership with GreenSky®, consumer financing options are now available for Smart Home projects through participating Control4 dealers

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions, today announced a new agreement with GreenSky®, one of the fastest growing financial technology companies in the country, to offer end-user financing to its U.S. dealer network of over 2700 businesses.


Control4 independent dealers may choose to engage the GreenSky program to offer new financing options directly to their customers for the purchase, installation and integration of Control4 and 3rd party products. The GreenSky program enables the customer to quickly and easily apply for a number of competitive financing plans which may include no interest, reduced APR, and same-as-cash options.

"Control4 is providing more business tools to our dealer network so they can grow their business and service our shared end-customers better," said Mark Novakovich, Control4 CFO. "On average, Control4 customers have over 40 connected devices in their smart home, and with support for over 9,500 3rd party products, consumers have a lot of choice in the products they bring into their smart home. Now with these financing options, they also have more choice in how they finance their smart home products and installation."

As smart home technology has increasingly become a part of the infrastructure of a home, Control4 Dealers have frequently requested consumer financing options similar to those available for home improvement and new home construction projects. CFO Mark Novakovich believes these financing options will aide in shortening the sales cycle for smart home projects by offering payment options that align with customer financing preferences. Beginning January 2016, dealers that sign-up with the GreenSky program will be able to provide their customer-base with financing solutions for Control4 products, partner products offered in the Control4 Online Store, other 3rd party products offered by the dealer, and installation costs associated with their smart home upgrades.
