3 Home Automation Services to Ensure Your Home Runs Glitch-Free

Home Automation Systems Need Tune-Ups Too

3 Home Automation Services to Ensure Your Home Runs Glitch-Free

We are all familiar with things that require routine maintenance. Cars may be the first to come to mind. Oil changes, lube, tune-ups, tire rotations, and other items are standard services that all vehicles need. OK, so electric cars don't need oil changes, filters, or spark plugs, but they require other maintenance too. Closer to home, HVAC systems and other functions need routine maintenance for optimal performance.

Home automation is an increasingly popular upgrade to today’s homes. Homeowners enjoy the many benefits of lighting control, motorized shading, HVAC control, unified AV systems, and integrating all of these through smart home automation systems.

Do home automation systems need maintenance? Should you seek out companies in Marietta, GA (like us) that specialize in home automation services to "tune-up" your system? What services could possibly be needed with some electronics and software? The answers below might surprise you.

Why You Should Add a Séura Smart Mirror to Your Bathroom

Invigorate Your Morning Routine with This Innovative Smart Home Device

Why You Should Add a Séura Smart Mirror to Your Bathroom

Note: This blog was first written about two years ago, but that doesn’t mean that our messaging is outdated! Quite the opposite: The popularity of the technology we will discuss today has been steadily growing as more people extend the “smart” rooms of their homes. That includes kitchens, garages and bathrooms, which have gone too long untouched by cool tech devices.

Now that people have expanded their concept of which rooms can be “smart,” we’ve seen bathrooms transform into integrated spaces that rival spas in their relaxation qualities, with in-ceiling music, voice-controlled HVAC and even smart toilets. Your bathroom hosts your morning alone time where you might try to squeeze in getting ready with listening to music, checking weather or following the news. A smart mirror addition, like the one we discuss today from Séura, will help you accomplish it all at once and make the most of your morning routine!

Experience Natural Voice Control With Josh.ai

Experience Natural Voice Control With Josh.ai

Note: More than a year after we originally drafted this blog, voice control has taken an even more prominent role in today’s smart homes. Clients rely on voice control technology to search for information or ask their home assistants to perform certain actions. For example, maybe you’re cooking and want to brighten the lights, but your hands are busy. Just ask your virtual assistant for help, and you’ll notice the room brighten in seconds. However, in the past, you had to mind your diction and use exactly the right words for your assistant or voice control app to understand you.

But that’s not how humans speak on a regular basis. Sometimes we jumble words, ask something in a more obtuse manner, or simply speak with an accent. Your voice control should be built to accommodate that. Josh.ai revolutionized the industry by creating the first home assistant with natural language processing capabilities. Keep reading to see how that function works in real life and why we highly recommend Josh.ai for your home.

Home automation makes controlling your home a simple affair. A touchscreen or your phone can command lights, audio, TVs, thermostats, and more to do your bidding. Sometimes, however, our hands are occupied. Sometimes our phones are recharging, or taking it out will immerse us in the thirty notifications we missed. At those times, we might just want to bark a voice command to get something done. Saying "I'm home," for example, could turn on a combination of lights in key areas and start a music playlist on your multi-room audio system. You might think that you need something like Amazon's Alexa, Google Home, or Apple's Siri to do that – but there's another option.

There’s a new voice home automation service that is going to make it even easier to control your Alpharetta-area or North Georgia home with just your voice. It makes it so easy and seamless that you may find yourself rarely reaching for a remote or your smartphone. It's called Josh.ai, and it will understand what you want to do as well as a personal butler.

You might be thinking at this point: What does Josh.ai do that I can’t do with Amazon Alexa or Google Home? Read on to learn how Josh does voice-controlled home automation differently.
