The Smartest Devices for your Home

Imagine coming home after a long day to find your floors vacuumed, your thermostat set for comfort, and soft lighting to welcome you.  With smart devices, you can have all that and more.  There are many devices on the market today, so, let’s look at four of these machines.

Alexa, the New Member of the Family

Amazon’s Alexa, the brain behind Echo, is a personal assistant system that you can and give commands, ask questions, and program to control other smart devices in your home.  Listen to music, get updated sports scores, find out the current weather, or order take-out with Alexa.  You can even get answers to general knowledge questions.  Let Alexa order items online or keep track of your calendar so you don’t miss an event. This technology is cloud-based making updates easy to load as new skills are developed.  Alexa is the ultimate assistant for you and your home.

Staying Cool in Summer and Warm in Winter

Keeping your home at a comfortable temperature while saving on heating and cooling costs is part of the smart thermostats.  You can manage your HVAC system even when you are away from home by logging in from your smartphone or tablet.  Plus, you will see savings on your heating and cooling bills because managing your thermostat keeps your home comfortable when you are there but, adjusts the temperature when no one is home. Some smart thermostats will even give you money saving tips.

Even Your Lighting is Adjustable

Smart technology is even available for lights. With a personal lighting smart device like the Philips Hue, you can control the lights from anywhere in your house. Create an experience playing with colors or syncing the lights to your favorite music or movies.  Adjust lights to help you read, concentrate, or relax at the touch of a finger or let the personal assistant device in the house do it. There is also an app to control lights when you are away.  Relax and enjoy your vacation knowing your lights are programmed to look like you are home.
