Imagine your home being this smart:
WHEN YOU WAKE UP //
Your TV kicks on at 6:00 AM. Your blinds open at 6:10 AM, and your thermostat goes up by three degrees. You shower and walk downstairs and your lights turn on. You ask for the top news updates while you drink your coffee. When you’re ready to go, you pause at the door to tell Google Home that you are leaving: all your lights go off, the TV turns off, the doors lock, the temperature drops five degrees, all blinds close, and the coffee pot outlet turns off. You head to work with peace of mind.
WHEN YOU’RE GONE //
Your smart home still knows what you need to know. While you’re hard at work, your doorbell camera stays on alert for suspicious activity, the basement is monitored for water and humidity, and your thermostat begins to heat your house half an hour before you’re due to arrive.
WHEN YOU COME HOME //
As you pull into the driveway, your garage door opens, the lights kick on, the door unlocks, your favorite music starts playing, and shades open up. The pictures you have taken today automatically get backed up and your fireplace begins crackling. After dinner, with one command, your smart TV fires up, living room shades close, lights dim, and ESPN is on.
WHEN IT’S BEDTIME //
You let your smart home know that you’re going to bed. The TV and fireplace turn off, your thermostat drops three degrees, all shades close, all doors lock, and your bedroom light kicks on. You drift off with total peace of mind.
