Each new year means new smart home automation innovations to improve your Florida home’s style, convenience, and efficiency. 2017 is going to be no different. If you have already experienced the benefits of automation with a Control4 or Crestron system, then we have found solutions that will improve the way your home syncs to your lifestyle. Perhaps you have no idea how much different life can be in a smart home; these new products will demonstrate that now is the right time to be introduced. For the New Year, make a resolution to make every day more extraordinary with the intuitive technologies listed below. 

Voice Control

Voice control has already made a giant splash in the smart home world. In October, Amazon announced a partnership with Crestron and Control4 and their Alexa products. These Alexa-enable devices—like the Echo and the Echo Dot—integrate with your smart home technologies. You can, therefore, simply ask Alexa to turn on the lights, adjust the AC, or start a movie. This will make every day and every room simpler. For instance, let’s say you’re just getting in the door after work. You’ve brought home the groceries and your hands are full. When you get in the door, just say “Alexa, I’m home” and she can turn on the lights, turn on the AC, and start playing your favorite song. No more fumbling—just use your voice.

The most exciting aspect of the Alexa and automation partnership is what is to come. These controls are only going to become more intuitive. Soon, your voice control will know who is speaking and already have a catalog of their preferences. Get started in 2017 and be ready for this future.

It may seem like science fiction, but voice control is becoming a reality for smart homes everywhere. You can now adjust your technologies simply by using your voice. The partnership between Amazon voice recognition technology, also known as Alexa, and home automation companies like Crestron has made it simple to incorporate voice control into your smart home system.  But what will voice control add to your Miami, FL home? In this article, we will cover four ways you can use voice control to your advantage. Read on to learn more. 

1. Simplify Your Home’s Security

Perhaps when you decided to include smart home technology into your Florida home, your home’s security was a major priority. Adding smart home security means increased protection for your home, from video surveillance to home access, but it also means increased convenience. You can unlock your door right from your smartphone and receive any alerts regarding your home’s security system.

When you add voice control into the mix, your home’s security becomes even simpler. For instance, you can ask your Alexa device about any component of your security system. Let’s say you’re just laying down to go to sleep, but you aren’t sure if you locked the door; just ask Alexa. She’ll tell you which doors are locked and you can ask her to lock anything that isn’t secured for the night. You won’t even have to move from your bed.
