Find the Smart Home Automation Interface to Fit Your Style

A smart home automation system should be as unique as you are. For many Asheville, NC residents, that uniqueness and personalization reaches beyond integrating the most useful types of technology for them – it means finding distinct ways to control it. In this blog, we’ll take you through some of the most effective ways you can control your integrated technology. Read on to learn more.

The Newest Method: Voice Control

One of the most popular trends in technology today is the ability to control it with the sound of your own voice. From your smartphone to video game system, you can take advantage of easy-to-use spoken commands. Voice control has reached a point, thanks to companies like Amazon and Google, where it can recognize words and phrases regardless of accent or pronunciation – and smart home manufacturers are beginning to take notice.

That’s why this year has seen one of the most exciting advances in smart home technology in the past decade: voice-control integration for total home control. Major manufacturers are partnering with Amazon and Google to use their interfaces to literally speak to your technology.

Dubbed Alexa and Assistant, respectively, the two company’s platforms offer similar levels of control. And while it’s unclear who will come out on top in the voice control game, one thing is obvious: voice control isn’t the future, it’s already here.

Smartphone Apps and Wall Panels

In addition to the latest method of control, you can also rely on more traditional means that help you stay in touch with your system from anywhere in the world. Smartphone apps and integrated wall panels are still effective ways to minimize clutter and easily command your system.

Smartphone apps put the power of your integrated technology in the palm of your hand. From anywhere in your house, you can quickly turn on the lights in any room, or start streaming music via your whole home audio system. In fact, the interface is designed to look identical to the one on your dedicated controller, so you won’t have to spend much time getting familiar with it.

You can also rely on dedicated wall panels that minimize the clutter on your coffee table. When you walk into a room, simply adjust the settings of your system the way you would a traditional light switch and you’ll have the perfect, comfortable setting for any occasion.
