How Are Residents Of A Smart Home Neighborhood Finding The Experience?
The Ferguson family is loving the idea of a smart home. All the Ferguson kids are making proper use of Alexa, such as for homework, entertainment, and for some convenience, such as keeping reminders and alarms. Kelli Ferguson, the mother, is still a bit undecided. While she does love the convenience that comes with a smart home, all the cameras and the potential security issues get her down.
The family lives in the Seattle suburb of Black Diamond in a smart home unit provided by Lennar Homes. Amazon devices are being offered as a standard tech on all Lennar smart homes. This partnership works great as it allows Amazon to increase adoption of Echo smart speakers while it allows Lennar Homes to build a more convenient and secure smart home.
Lennar New Home consultant Brittney Svach throws out commands like a smart home samurai, using her voice to lock the door, start up the robot vacuum, dim the lights, close the blinds, and call up a feed on the smart television from one of the home’s many surveillance cameras.
While smart home features don’t feature among the top desired qualities in a home, experts say that this will quickly change if people try it out once. With smart homes comes the question of privacy. While some homeowners are comfortable with the idea of smart speakers recording your conversations and cameras being there on the premises, some are yet to come around.
