You may have heard of voice controlled home automation, but what is it and how can it benefit you? Put simply, voice controlled home automation will make your smart home smarter.
You won’t have to rely on a touchscreen or tablet to activate your home automation solutions, instead, you’ll be able to control your home environment via Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
As your local home automation experts, ISQ know a thing or two about smart solutions. In this blog, we look at some of the reasons why you should consider voice-controlled home automation.
What better way to turn off devices, systems and appliances than with voice-controlled technology? Whether you’re disarming your security systems, turning down your air-conditioner or switching off your TV, the ability to control your home effortlessly, remotely and in real-time means that you’ll be using less energy.
You can also forget rushing back into your house to turn off the oven — as voice-activated appliances and devices can be accessed remotely.
User-Friendly For All Ages
Haven’t we all fumbled around in the dark searching for our front door key — wishing we’d left the lights on? Those days are long gone!
Voice controlled home automation can be utilised in any room, or across your entire home, with solutions including lighting, security, home entertainment and more.
Home automation can help people of every age — from busy parents to the elderly. It takes away the need for manually controlling every aspect of your home and will allow for a more intuitive environment. It’s simpler, faster and easily accessible once you’ve mastered the basic principles of the technology.
Smarter Smart Homes
You’ve taken the first steps with home automation, but voice automation will take it to a whole new level. There’s an ever-growing range of products on the market which are compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The old days of flicking a light switch on and off are gone; now you can remotely control your lights with a basic command, so they can be turned on or off, dimmed or pre-programmed for a specific scene-setting (think dimmed lights for parties, or a few key lights when you’re away on holidays). The scope for voice-controlled devices, systems and appliances continue to grow with options including ovens, coffee machines and speakers, just to name a few.
