What’s Your Vote Among The Big 3 Smart Home Platforms?
The battle of the smart home assistants never ends. The Big Three – Amazon, Google, and Apple all have their own Assistants but when it comes to users choosing one, there are several things we need to consider. Starting with Alexa, the main advantage of the device are its skills – it is like a marketplace where you will be able to find thousands of skills. However, it will be difficult for you to ask follow-up questions without saying “Alexa” before every request. The advantage of the Google Assistant is that the users can ask follow-up questions without repeating the wake word “Hey Google.” The Google Assistant is also good at recognizing individual voices and this makes music recommendations easier. Though the HomeKit is the least used system out of these, the main advantage of the system is its security.
When it comes to third-party support, Alexa has the widest reach. The platform works with more than 60,000 different devices.
Google Home has half of those and Apple ranks third in the list. In terms of installation procedures, Google Home ranks the best. A Google Home device can be set up in mere minutes whereas you will be spending a few hours setting up things on Amazon Alexa. The Apple HomeKit has both the easy and hard options depending on the device that is being set up. Once you do the research, it should be easier to decide on the device that will suit you the best.
