In our first part of the smart home tick list, we discussed the need for an adequate Wifi system in regards to the broadband, reliability of your ISP and the router you choose. After ensuring you have the right internet setup you will want to look into the devices you wish to use and toy with the idea of purchasing a voice recognition system with an inbuilt virtual assistant and smart hub.
A device such as the Amazon Echo is a multifunctional device that connects your devices, allows you to control them using your voice, provide an audio experience and act as assistant capable of answering any questions you may have. If you’re interested in diving into smart home tech than a purchase of a smart hub is an absolute necessity. One with voice recognition technology is also highly recommended. You have three main options for a smart assistant, which includes Siri, Alexa, and Home.
