The current pandemic has changed our work-lives as we know them. Some of us are on a forced, yet appreciated vacation. And others find ourselves completely inundated with tasks, both professional and personal. The line between office and home has become blurred. Smart Home Assistants are here to help ease the transition from rest to workplace, and then back into sanctuary again.
Synchronize all of your devices to ease your work experience. See who’s at the door without interrupting that important conference call. Nurture your mental well being with the most comforting lighting. Cue the music for the daily grind or the dinner table. All of these tasks are now done with ease by your very own smart Home Assistants.
The Alexa Advantage
The Amazon Echo offers you, as a remote professional, the advantage of access to all of your devices from your smartphone. Create a to-do list, add an event to your calendar, catch up on the current news, call a client; all in one convenient hub.
“Alexa, schedule a 9 o’clock Zoom meeting Friday with the team.”
With Alexa and Amazon Echo you never break focus on your current task.
Let Savant Serve You
Who’s that at your front door? Minimize interruptions to your workday by seeing who is there first before pressing pause on that important piece of business. With Savant’s connected entry you can communicate via video and intercom, even open the door for your guest, all through your smartphone with the Savant Pro app.
Your circadian rhythm becomes unbalanced by working indoors most of the day, shielded from the sunlight, and on computers and devices. Savant allows you to seamlessly program scenes to battle this blue light over-emission. Lighting from brands like Lutron and USAI is engineered to adjust throughout the day to follow the natural rhythms of the sun and moon, bringing balance back into your life.
Google Feathers Your Nest
It’s 8 am and time to start your workday…from home. Get your creativity flowing with some inspirational music. Come 5 o’clock the ambient sound automatically turns to relaxation mode, signaling the end of your workday, and therefore time to focus on you and your loved ones. In our current climate, we need a gentle reminder that home is still home, even when working remotely.
Welcome to Google Nest Sessions, the latest project from Google. You can download it from the Google store, and tune in by talking to a Nest speaker. It’s billed as a “mood-lifting music experience inspired by psychology.” Let Google Nest transition you from work life to home life through the joy of music.
Our lives are constantly evolving, as is evident against the current backdrop. We are told to stay and play at home to keep safe, but we must also work at home to stay successful. How do we balance this work/life situation? Now is the time to implement innovative technology that makes us smarter by having smarter homes.
Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
