Through steady research and careful selection, you may find yourself living in the future with a full-blown smart home, complete with smart lights, smart locks, smart security cameras, smart thermostat, smart washer and dryer, smart espresso machine (Santa, are you listening?)… The list goes on. Most of these smart things will have their own independent applications to use, which means you may get overwhelmed with all of the different app interfaces you’ll use to access your devices. If your house were so smart, you’d think you could just talk to it and tell it what you want it to do. Here’s the thing: You can, with the right system.
With products like Google Home and Amazon Echo, you can program your smart home devices to respond to your voice, though it may take a little work to program it correctly. In addition, your hub can also work as a personal assistant and online encyclopedia, scheduling meeting notices and answering your questions, like which year was the original Star Wars released, or what will the weather be like tomorrow.
