Now that you’ve read about what voice control with Control4 and Amazon Alexa is all about in our last blog post, let’s dive right into some exciting features that you can have in your home.
Home Automation at the Tip of Your Tongue
What’s your morning routine like? Maybe a soothing sound from your phone gently lifts you from your slumber, and you groggily muster up that early morning will power and pull yourself out of bed and send that destroyer of blissful sleep packing for another 24 hours.
Then comes the task of finding that light switch that has been in the same spot for 15 years, but somehow evades you every morning, waking up the kids, and getting the coffee started. Your day has begun.
Now here’s that same routine with Control4 and your Amazon Echo unit. The same blissful tones play, and your kids will wake up to the same tones as you. However, if they need a little extra motivation, a classic alarm tone that would wake up a slumbering giant after a New Year’s bender can be arranged. Just say, “Alexa, wake up kids,” and they’re well on their way to start the day.
Next, you’ll want to get that morning coffee started, see what the day has to offer, and make sure those kids are up and at ‘em.
“Alexa, morning routine.”
The coffee maker starts up, the lights turn on in your kids’ rooms, and Alexa reads you the weather and traffic report, as well as the morning headlines. All this while you’re still in bed, wiping the sleep from your eyes. Go ahead and say, “Alexa, snooze,” you deserve it.
Sound like the best morning ever? We think so too.
Now that you’ve discovered what Alexa and Control4 voice control can do for your morning, here’s a video from Control4 showing what a typical, intimate evening in with your loved ones could look like.
As you can see, Alexa brings all the greatest features of your Control4 Home Automation system to the tip of your tongue, and allows you to better access and control various features of your smart home. By voice activating these “scenes,” you are able to control them anywhere in the home, as long as you are within range of an Amazon Alexa device.
By controlling multiple functions of your home at once with Alexa, your smart home has become tremendously smarter. This means ease, convenience, and efficiency for you.
