Looking to turn your house into a smart home, but overwhelmed with all of the options at your fingertips? Technology has impacted our lives in many ways, allowing us to have quick access to things, as well as giving us the opportunity to stay connected to our loved ones.
Each year it seems that there is a new device that grabs our attention and makes us want to join the trend. These voice-activated devices making things like listening to music and checking the weather a breeze.
Here is a list of 3 devices that can make your life a little easier when inside and around your home.
- This device is probably one that will make you reconsider naming your next daughter Alexa. Although using this device gets repetitive in speech, the benefits that come from it are very convenient. You can check the weather as well as request a song from across the room all through the voice-activation technology. Amazon has a large affiliation with many other well-known brands such as Phillips, Samsung, and Nest, making it that much easier to control things such as your garage door, house temperature, and even securing your doors. Those are just a few of the reasons why Alexa has the most third-party integrations.

- Just like Alexa, SmartThings operates seamlessly with many other devices that control things such as temperature, lights, internet speakers, and so much more. With additional smart devices, you can even take it a step further by programming devices in your household to turn on or off when you enter or exit a room. Creepy but cool at the same time, isn’t it?
- If there’s another device that competes with the popular Alexa, statistic shows that it has to be Google Assistant. This has to do with Google’s large ownership when it comes to the infamous search engine. The separating factor in comparison to Alexa, is Google’s capability to understand how humans speak. Although you may see this as an advantage, it also may push others away due to the fact that the Assistant is more literal than Alexa.
