Bring Your Family Together with Home Voice Control
Streamline Your Washington Home with This Simple Smart Home Solution
Voice control and smart speakers have recently taken Seattle and the country by storm, giving homeowners a method of operating smart devices throughout their Mercer Island, WA home. Initially, home voice control was a bit clunky and supported relatively few smart devices.
Thankfully, that is no longer the case, and using voice commands has become an incredibly easy method of operating your home’s automation system. Voice control assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant let your entire family control other smart devices in your home.

Both Google Home Assistant and Amazon Alexa allow you to create customized scenes, or preset conditions, to control many different aspects of your home’s smart devices. You can choose to operate one device at a time with, “Alexa, turn off the TV,” or you can choose to run multiple devices at once with, “Hey Google, time for dinner” to turn on your multi-room audio system for tunes, dim the dining room lighting and lower the motorized shades to have a relaxing dinner with the family. Programming personalized scenes can be done with just a few taps on your smart device.
Convenience with Voice
Control4 home automation already brings convenience and ingenuity into your home, but adding voice control makes your life even easier! Imagine walking into your home at the end of a long day, everyone’s arms full of items – be it dinner, shopping bags, backpacks, or your briefcase – and saying aloud, “Alexa, I’m home.” Your lighting control system will respond, turning lights in the entryway on, as well as all pathway lighting to critical areas of your home. Your thermostat can also respond, raising or lowering to a predetermined temperature to ensure your family’s maximum comfort.
Once dinner is over, walk to your home theater and command, “Alexa, time for a movie.” Your motorized window shades will lower as the lights dim to the perfect setting, and your TV or projector will fire up, awaiting your movie selection for your family’s movie night. No need to fumble for your audio system’s remotes, the system will turn on to all the correct settings automatically once you command the movie scene to initiate.
