How to Own the Smart Home of Your Dreams
The online magazine Fast Company recently published an article titled ‘The Smart Home Is Failing as a Concept—Because It Sucks.’ In it, Jared Newman laments that smart home devices often do not work, saying, “Just this week…the two Alexa-connected blinds in my bedroom failed to roll down at their scheduled time.”
He continues, “The SmartThings lights in my bedroom don’t work with Apple’s Siri assistant, and my Tilt blinds only work with Alexa.” His devices aren’t compatible and integrated together—and that’s his first mistake.
DIY smart devices aren’t built for integration and compatibility. Running a collection of smart gadgets connected to a voice assistant is not a “smart home.” A truly automated home requires a professionally installed and hardwired system that runs on the same network. Sophisticated smart home controllers like Control4 are not found on Amazon or at Best Buy. But for the homeowner who’s serious about luxury living with smart technology, using anything less will only lead to headaches.
In this blog, we’ll share how working with a smart home company can deliver the quality smart home results you desire. And if you’re located in the Nashville, TN, area, you can find all the home automation solutions you need from Symspire.
