Voice control is a popular feature in many homes. No matter which platform you use, smart technology can really change your reality. Here are four ways that voice control can help reduce your stress and save you time:
With voice control, you can plug in appliances to control them from your smart device. Turn on the electric kettle while you're getting dressed and the water will be hot when you get to the kitchen. Install smart lighting technology to have voice control lights instead of touching switches when your hands are full or dirty. Adjust thermostats without having to look up how to do it.
Help Your Family Operate Audio and Video Equipment
Kids can learn to activate voice control to turn on your expensive technology preventing wear and tear on the units. Older adults can also use voice control to learn to use smart technology such as remotes, thermostats and keypads. The learning curve is much shorter over having to look up information each time.
Ease Your Mind
Verify that your doors are locked, or appliances are turned off by using real-time surveillance cameras. Even check on pets or teenagers when you're away. Put a video camera at the front door to be able to answer the door with a smart device, even when you're miles away from home.
Hook up your voice control to motorized window shades, lawn sprinklers and other technology to be able to kick back and relax without dealing with mundane details. While you're enjoying a nap in the recliner, you can send the vacuum cleaner on its way, turn on some music and turn down the lights.
