You know what smart technology is. In fact, you use it every day by seamlessly operating devices like your smartphone, features in your car, computers, and even smart home systems. For instance, a home automation system lets you touch an icon on a tablet to adjust your room’s lighting without flipping a switch. Smart technology in your Bay Area home makes living more luxurious.
Still, you may not realize that it can be even better. A voice assistant is a smart home installation technology that transforms how you interact with your home’s systems. Just say the word, and your home responds! Keep reading to learn the practical and sophisticated applications of having a smart home voice control system.
You’ve got a busy life. Whether you’re a full-time homemaker, a business owner or employee, an avid hobbyist, or someone who enjoys being involved in various projects around the house, you don’t always have your hands free. Wouldn’t it be nice for smart home installation to give you a helping hand? With a smart home that’s interfaced with voice control, you can go about your day and control your home’s technology by simply saying a few simple phrases.
When you open the front door after coming home from the office or running errands, tell your home to turn on the lights. No need to search for a light switch, touch a tablet, or use your smartphone app. If you’re using Amazon Alexa, simply say, “Alexa, turn on the living room lights.” Then, your home’s lighting illuminates. You can do the same when you wake up in the morning. Instead of getting up to turn on the bedroom lights, tell your voice control assistant to turn the lights to half level. Isn’t that a better way to control the lights in your home?
Did something go “bump” in the night? Don’t get up to look around. Ask your voice control assistant if everything is OK. Say, “Alexa, show the front door camera.” Then, your system displays the camera feed of choice. And if you forgot to lock your doors, and you have smart locks, tell Alexa to do it for you. The system also gives you complete voice control of your smart blinds and entire smart home security system.
Watching movies or listening to whole-home music is more fun when you have a voice control assistant. Let’s say it’s time to get up in the morning. Without opening your eyes, tell your smart home to play your favorite playlist. Then, music fills the room, helping you get in the right mood to begin the day. Maybe you want to wake your child while you’re preparing breakfast. Tell the system to play a Disney playlist in that room.
As evening time comes, and movie night is underway, your voice assistant is ready to make your viewing experience even more enjoyable. Say, “Alexa. Movie night scene.” Since you’ve programmed the scene into your smart home system, it knows to dim the lights, lower the motorized shades, and start the AV system. Now, tell it which movie to play, and you’re ready for home entertainment!
