What Is Voice Controlled Home Automation?

Simple meaning of voice controlled home automation is you can control your electronic and electric appliances just through your voice. 

You don’t even need to tap on the mobile application to control your appliances but a hub like Amazon Alexa or Google Home by which you can give commands to cloud servers. 

The smart devices which are integrated with your home appliances can communicate to cloud servers and take action on your home appliances as per your commands. 

You can also talk to cloud through voice assistants like Amazon Alexa.

Now, let’s jump together on the 10 schedules and commands of voice controlled home automation:- 

Set Smart Alarms:- Imagine, you want to wake up in the morning at 7am but you don’t want to get up through your ordinary alarm then you can set a smart alarm through Alexa.

Even it can set a sun rising scene in your room. How? Let me explain.

If you want to get up at 7am, you can set a schedule for turning on lights automatically at 6am for 15% and then 30% on 6:15am then 60% on 6:30 am.

This series will make you feel the sun is rising.
