HOW CAN I USE SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY TO SIMPLIFY MY LIFE?
HELENE SEGURA A smart home can help wake you up in the morning, give you traffic and weather reports while you are getting dressed, and be your little personal assistant during the day.
ELLEN DELAP Smart home technology creates automation in your home so you don’t have to attend to things as frequently. It makes everyone’s life smoother because we don’t have to think about, Did I do this? Did I turn off the lights? As a result, you are being proactive in terms of saving money and saving time in your day.
JAMIE STEELE The great thing about all of this smart home technology is it’s giving us less to remember. We don’t have to store it all in our heads. We’re not trying to remember to turn off the coffeepot, turn off the lights, or lock the doors. You can do that automatically with a key phrase or word.
ANDREW MELLEN For those of us who remember the Jetsons, those kinds of technologies are now available. With automation, we can save time and establish systems. Even if you are 2,000 miles away, you can tap into your home network and adjust your thermostat remotely. There are now appliances that can start meals for you.
