Are you arriving late to the smart speaker device craze? That’s okay, because these home management devices are still popular and can do more than they could when they first hit the scene. So if your household is just now getting its first Alexa, Google Home or Amazon Echo and you already have a home security system powered by smart home technology, you’ll be able to do even more with your new device than your friends who got theirs last year. Sometimes, it does pay to wait out a trend. Here’s what integrating your smart speakers and home security system can do.
Make Home Simpler and Safer
Your smart speakers are great for playing music on command, checking the weather or finding out what time the movie is playing. But what about activating your alarm? Let’s say your security system is disarmed and you need to turn it on for the night – only problem is, you don’t feel like getting out of bed to do it. That’s no problem if your smart speaker is at your bedside. Just give it a voice command to arm the alarm and turn off the lamp. Now, you can relax more securely for the night.
Throw a Better Party for Friends
Last year, your friends used their smart speakers to do party tricks (and show off a little, of course). But this year, your party will be even better because your Alexa, Echo or Google Home is connected to your security system with smart home technology.
Need things to feel more cozy as the night gets colder? Command your smart speaker to turn up the heat and turn down the lights; it will communicate with your connected security system to make both happen immediately. It makes hosting the party easier, your guests are impressed, and the ambiance is exactly the way you want it without you lifting a finger.
