A revolution in home technology is upon us.
We think that once you see our new Smart Home powered by Amazon Alexa, you’ll never want to go back to a time when you couldn’t control your home with just the sound of your voice.
We’ve collaborated with Amazon to fulfill our shared vision of a home that changes the way we live, simplifying our routines and helping us make the most of each day.
Turn on the lights, raise the shades, play some tunes. Check the security camera, lock the doors. You don’t have to lift a finger. All you have to do is ask.
And that’s only the beginning.
The Brookfield Residential Smart Home, located at Avendale, integrates voice-enabled home automation using the best-selling, cloud-based voice service, Amazon Alexa.
“We are excited to be working with Brookfield Residential to bring the ease of Alexa into the Avendale community,” said Rob Pulciani, Director, Amazon Alexa. “We hope that homebuyers enjoy the convenience of voice-controlled home automation and use it to help them do everything from turning on the lights to adding items to their to-do list.”
Voice-Enabled Home Automation for the Masses
Until now, for most home automation capabilities, even if you could bring them into your home, you needed some tech savvy and a wide assortment of apps on your phone or tablet to control everything.
The Smart Home makes it easy for anyone to control their home with the sound of their voice.
We’ve wired the home to be receptive to the technology it has included now and technology that might come later. The collaboration with Amazon was critical because the cloud-based Alexa voice service allows you to control it with your voice, not just a phone, tablet or computer. And Alexa is open to new advancements. Anyone living in a Smart Home can buy the latest Alexa device, such as Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap, Echo Dot, Amazon Fire TV or Fire tablets, and incorporate it easily.
Step Inside The Smart Home
Aficionados of home automation technology won’t want to miss the opportunity to tour this home.
Some of the most exciting features of The Brookfield Residential Smart Home are the custom capabilities, called “skills,” which combine a variety of tasks into a single voice command. For example, if you’re in the lower-level media room, you can say, “Alexa, turn on Movie Time.” The overhead lights will dim and the theater lights will illuminate. A favorite movie will begin playing.
Or imagine winding down at the end of the day. You can walk into the owner’s bathroom suite, start running a bath and say, “Alexa, turn on Relax.” The shades lower, the lights dim and illuminated star panels turn on as soothing spa music plays.
We want you to visit The Smart Home and be intrigued and excited about this new way of living. We want you to imagine how your lives would be better in a voice-enabled home. And if you’re a person drawn to the latest technology, we think you’ll be drawn to Brookfield Residential.
