“Hey Google, turn on the lights!”

I LOVE showing homes that are equipped with Hue® lights. Instead of running around turning all the lights on or off when we leave, a simple voice command does it all. These wi-fi enabled lights also do so much more as this article explains.  Set a timer, wake up gently, change colour schemes, set them to music… these really are intriguing.

A SMART Home is basically one that is equipped with lighting, heating, and other electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer.  We commonly see them in this area with Smart Locks on the doors that allow access without a key and notify the owner when a door is accessed.  We are starting to see more and more homes equipped with the Philips Hue® lighting systems and, heating controls such as NEST thermostats, cameras, and detectors.  Devices like Google Home or Echo can control everything and play some music for you while you try to figure it all out.

We’ve sure come a long way from old skeleton keys and gas lights.
