4 People Who Need Voice-Control Devices

Some Benefits You’ve Never Considered

4 People Who Need Voice-Control Devices

Voice-activated devices like Amazon Echoes are joining Edina, MN homes like yours in droves. According to a report by Strategy Analytics, Q4 sales of smart speakers reached 12 million units worldwide. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if many of them were wrapped in holiday paper right now.

Many smart home owners enjoy the novelty of hearing weather updates, playing music, getting recipe assistance and more, but some individuals and households ask Alexa to simplify their lifestyles, too. She isn’t just for fun: Alexa provides many time-savings and stress-relieving benefits. We’ve identified some people who might need her help next year.

Alexa + Control4 Integration

Though some homeowners believe a remote or smartphone  offers a more hands-on user experience, many people today want or need the flexibility that voice control provides. Fortunately, the experts at Lelch Audio Video can integrate your Control4 technology with your Amazon Alexa software. As part of Control4’s recent update, you can ask Alexa to turn off a light in the basement when you’re upstairs, and Control4 smart home technology will make it happen.

Who Benefits?

If one of the points below relates to you, consider buying your family the gift of a smarter home this holiday season. You’ll enjoy a simplified life throughout 2019.

The Go-Getters

If you’re as preoccupied as the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, a voice-activated smart home will help you manage your time -- so you won’t be late for all your important dates. You can tell Alexa to prepare for your departure as you’re leaving, and she’ll adjust the locks, lighting, shades and whatever else you schedule as soon as you depart.

The Injured or Sick

We all experience times when we don’t feel well enough to move around, and anything further than an arm’s reach away feels too cumbersome to handle.

Fortunately, Control4 manages the whole home, so you can unlock a door for a guest, turn on the heat when you’re cold and call someone for help. Families with immobile and elderly family members have benefitted from voice control because it simplifies manual and physical tasks for both patients and caregivers, allowing everyone the peace of mind they deserve.

Parents of Small Children

Most parents will tell you they’d give anything for an extra hand. Parents holding a small child can use voice control to help them unlock a front door.

With the help of voice-control technology, there’s also no risk for kids breaking an expensive remote control. Not to mention, wireless technology can eliminate small dangers, like window cords and batteries, from your child’s life.

For larger families or those who need some organization, Alexa automates reminders about multiple appointments, medications, inclement weather and more.

The Entertainer

If you entertain, your smile and amazing food take center stage, but guests can’t ignore your stunning voice-control technology. Make a safe path for them and activate your home’s exterior lighting, and you’ll impress them before they even make it inside. Talk to Alexa while you’re too busy cooking or crafting cocktails, and she’ll turn on the music or twinkle lights that set the party tone.
