28 Jul A Voice Automated Home?
If you haven’t yet heard about technologies like Amazon Alexa or Google home, you will soon!
These devices act as an assistant in your home.
They can do things like play music, turn lights on and off, raise and lowering shades, and more.
Setting the Scene
Devices like these can even be used to set a “scene” that affects the whole home with a simple voice command.
For example, you might say something like “Alexa, it’s movie time!”
This could turn on the projector, lower the projector screen, decrease the temperature, dim the lights and start your favorite movie playing!
You might also simply say “Alexa turn off my family room lights” or “Alexa, lower my family room temperature.”
It’s a really amazing world of technology that we live in when you can simply talk to a device, and have it give you exactly what you are looking for!
(It’s like something out of Star Trek, except that we get to experience it every day.)
In the last couple of years, millions of people have begun using Amazon Alexa & Google Home. These new technologies will continue to grow in features and add value to our lives.
Take a look at some fun and funny videos of Amazon Alexa in action on this other post:
