There are so many ways home control technology allows you to control your security system when you’re not at home. And when you are at home, there are plenty of things it can do right inside the house. It can control whatever features you have connected to it on top of your alarm system, all of which you can control from the palm of your hand with your smartphone.
But if you have a virtual assistant device at home – an Alexa, Google Home or Amazon Echo, specifically — you can have even more control over your home’s functions. When your virtual assistant device works together with your home control system, your household can run like clockwork. Here are some examples.
Easy Alarm Control
Before you had a home control system, you had to punch a code into your keypad to control your alarm. When you upgraded to a smart home system or home control, you switched to a convenient app on your smartphone. How could things get any easier? By integrating with your Alexa, Google Home or Echo device. Now, you’ll be able to control the alarm simply by giving your device a voice command, such as, “Hey Alexa, arm the security system.” And you’re done!
Quick Climate Control
The summer heat will be here before we know it. When the time comes, how will you deal with it night after night? If your Echo Dot or Google Home is in your bedroom, simply tell it to turn on the AC. You never had to get out of bed or even reach for your phone.
