Control Your Smart Home Easily With Your Voice

How a Professionally Installed System Works for You

Control Your Smart Home Easily With Your Voice

Smart home technology is all around us these days and is much more mainstream than in previous decades.  The undeniable success of voice assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Siri are simplifying our day-to-day lives.  If you ever dreamt of controlling your smart New York City coop with your voice, it is now well within the realm of possibility.  Smart thermostats like Nest or Ecobee can respond to commands like “Alexa, I’m cold.” A plethora of consumer smart lights, plugs, cameras, and video doorbells can also respond to your voice or control from a smartphone app.  So it’s easy, right?  Just go out to your local big box store or go online and you can order a complete smart home kit!

It’s actually not that easy to achieve the well-integrated smart home.  While consumer smart devices do work, sometimes they don't always respond the way they should.  Occasionally Alexa mysteriously can't connect to a smart device.  Sometimes the voice command you issued yesterday to dim the dining room lights doesn't work today.  If you don't depend on your smart home automation for any critical functions, you may not mind some of these glitches.

On the other hand, if you forgot to lock the garage door and are away for a long trip and the app for your smart lock decided to freeze and not connect, you might get more concerned.

If you want smart home automation that works consistently and well, you’d be wise to look into a professionally designed and installed system.  If you have a larger home and property, it is even more imperative to go the professional route.  Why?  Keep reading to learn more.
