Home Control Systems Add Convenience to Everyday Routines
Incorporate Smart Home Living with Sound & Vision
The concept of a ‘smart home’ has been around since the 1950s, with futuristic robot-centric homes that would cook and clean for you, even ironing your clothes! Though we can understand this optimistic outlook of wanting to remove the chore of laundry and cooking from our daily lives, the modern iteration is much more realistic and convenient than animators and engineers ever imagined it could be over half a century ago.
Smart home control systems add whole-home management to homeowners’ lives, reducing the time it takes to complete daily tasks – like walking around the home to turn off lights or raise shades – and add convenience and luxury to enjoying your Columbus, OH, home!
We haven’t seen any home technologies that can iron your shirts, but there are other innovative concepts that a smart home can do for you instead. Keep reading below to learn more.
Imagine walking into a room, hands filled with grocery bags if you’re entering from the garage or snacks if you’re walking into the home theater, and saying, “Hey Josh, turn on the lights.” The Josh.ai far-field microphone array can hear you from across the room and is room-aware, knowing where you’re located so as to initiate the proper device responses in the correct room. The hallway or entertainment area lighting turns on, illuminating your pathway for safe navigation! Set your bags down and go about your day with ease.
Automated Lights & Shades
As much as we want to think we’re spontaneous, most of us carry out the same routines day in and day out. We wake up around the same time each day, go to work, come home, and enjoy watching a little TV or hanging out with the family, and then we go to bed. These routines come with common interactions with home solutions like lighting and window treatments.
Let your home control system manage these common occurrences without a second thought! Schedule automated shades to rise in the mornings to help ease you awake without the jolt of an alarm clock and lower in the evenings for privacy. Turn exterior lighting on at dusk for safety and curb appeal, then automatically turn fixtures off at sunrise to reduce energy waste. And with temperature sensors added to the windows and living spaces, shades and lighting work in coordination with your HVAC system, ensuring rooms never feel too hot or too cold, regardless of the season.
