When it comes to smart devices in your home, you might picture your Amazon Echo for playing music or your Ring doorbell for seeing who’s at your door. However, when thinking about your smart products, it’s best to think of them all as one integrated system instead of separate items.
You can control your systems for media, lights, surveillance, and more through one centralized hub. Keep reading to find out how smart home services can transform your life and home in New York City.
Instead of just using voice commands for one device in your home — like your Echo — imagine using voice commands for any system in your home. You can have a comprehensive entertainment system that includes indoor and outdoor speakers and TVs, and program all the devices to hear and respond to your voice commands. Whether it’s to power on, adjust volume, or switch between shows, movies, and music — you can do it all with voice commands or an app on your smartphone. Instead of using multiple remotes for each TV, speaker, and console, you can say out loud what you want from your entertainment system. This convenience is great for your family members and when you’re hosting friends. Anyone can easily express a command to queue a song or play their favorite YouTube video on your TV.
Your home’s lighting can work with your media system to help create a fun atmosphere. If you want to create a soft glow around your home when having dinner or drinks, you can create a lighting “scene” that knows your dimming preferences. Instead of going to each light to dim them yourself, you can activate your preset scene anytime with the touch of a button from your smartphone. When it’s time for bed, you can press the “Goodnight” button on your smartphone app or your keypad by your bed to turn off all the lights in your home. This also helps you ensure no lights are on in the middle of the night — which saves you money on your electricity bills.
Another way to simplify your life and add peace of mind to your day-to-day is by utilizing a smart surveillance system. You can install high-definition surveillance cameras around your home that connect to your smartphone so that you can always monitor activities in real-time. Let’s say you’re in your kitchen preparing appetizers for your friends who are about to come over, and you hear your doorbell ring. You’ll be able to see who’s at the door through your phone and let them in with a tap of a button — all without having to leave your kitchen. When it’s time to hit the hay, you can look at your smart system app on your phone to make sure every door is locked. This will let you rest easy every night knowing your home’s secure and your family’s protected.
All the systems mentioned above — your media, lighting, and surveillance — can be integrated into the same system for your smart home. You can control everything through your smartphone or another smart device, and you won’t have to use various apps to control your systems. You can use one app to manage your entire home. If you want to mount keypads or program voice commands for your integrated system, you can do that too. Smart home services simplify your life and streamline your space — giving you ultimate comfort and convenience.
