Are you running a year or two behind on the smart speaker phenomenon? If so, you’re in luck: They’re still popular, and more dynamic than ever. If your family plans to get its first Alexa, Google Home or Amazon Echo this holiday season, you’ll soon learn that as a smart home security system owner, you’ll be able to do more with your smart speaker device than anyone else you know. For example, you’ll be able to:
Find Out Alarm Status
Like most people, you want a smart speaker for reasons that have little to do with playing music. You can ask them about the time, the weather, or even the news. But if you’re a smart home security system owner, you can do even more: like find out what your alarm status is. All it takes is a simple voice command to find out if your alarm is armed or disarmed, and another command to perform the arming action that’s needed.
Impress Your Guests
When smart speakers were first on the scene, early users had a blast showing them off to houseguests – and why not? They’re cool gadgets to have. But when the device is integrated with your smart home security system, there are even better tricks they can perform. Ask your Alexa, Echo or Google Home to adjust the thermostat so the heat kicks on, or lower the lights for a cozier ambiance. When you’ve got company, this is more than impressive; it’s time-saving, too.
Make Mornings Simpler
If your household is already time-challenged, a smart speaker device can be a great tool for making mornings simpler. But when it’s integrated with your home security system, it gets even better: open the garage door while you’re brushing your teeth, turn off the lights in the other room while you’re making coffee, or disarm the alarm when you first get out of bed. Suddenly, all those little time-consuming tasks are taking seconds rather than minutes. It’s a great way to streamline your family’s mornings.
