Enjoy Comfort & Convenience with a Fully Integrated Home Automation System 

So, you’re thinking about making your house a “smart home.” Maybe you’re interested in saving energy or the convenience automation provides. If you search the internet for smart home solutions, you’ll often come across DIY devices like Wi-Fi connected thermostats, voice speakers, and smart plugs that promise to make your house smart. 

While these devices can be useful in a small scale, they’re not the most effective way to build a fully automated home. Instead, professional home automation systems like Control4 can seamlessly control all of your home’s systems, even across multiple properties, from lighting to security to the home theater. 

Below, we’ll explain the difference between DIY smart devices and an integrated home automation system so you can make the best decision for your University Park, TX home.

Josh.ai, the Voice Assistant Built for Home Automation 

Voice control is fun and handy—until your voice assistant responds, “Sorry, I didn’t get that.” You repeat yourself louder, and it still doesn’t understand. You may then think, Ugh, I’ll just go turn off the lights myself. 

And then there’s the privacy issue. One minute, you’re talking to your spouse about how you need new sunglasses, and the next minute, ads for sunglasses start popping up while you browse the internet. Creepy! 

If only there were a voice assistant that clearly understood you and didn’t spy on your conversations…Well, actually, there is! 

Josh.ai is a relative newcomer in the voice control world, but it’s making a great name for itself. Josh was created specifically for home automation and can seamlessly respond to your natural speech patterns, performing tasks like turning on lights, closing shades, playing music, queueing up a TV show, and locking doors. 

Read on to discover what makes Josh.ai the cleverest voice assistant for your home automation system. And to learn more about smart technology for your Highland Park, TX home, subscribe to our free monthly newsletter

5 Things to Consider When Building Out Your Home Automation System

5-things-to-consider-when-building-out-your-home-automation-system

Plan for Greatness with Your Smart Home Installation 

Today’s smart home systems have the power to sync all your technology, including lighting, audio, security, and beyond. With one press of a button, you can turn off your entire house as you leave for the day. Then schedule lights and the thermostat to adjust to the perfect setting for your return home, all from your phone or tablet. 

But a lot goes into a home automation system. We’re not talking about plug-and-play devices with separate apps, like a video doorbell or Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. Owning a collection of smart gadgets doesn’t make a home “smart.” For true home automation, you need a central controller that unifies all your electronics into one intuitive system that you don’t need to command every time.

At Texadia Systems, we’re excited to help you build your new luxury smart home. Before you get started on your Southlake, TX system, read on to see which factors you need to consider first. And to learn more, subscribe to our free monthly newsletter on smart home technology.

Our Tips to Secure Your Home Automation System

The FBI recently released a statement warning shoppers about smart TVs’ vulnerability to hackers.

At the low end of risks, a hacker could change the channels of your TV remotely or turn on smart speakers. But in a worst-case scenario, they could turn on your bedroom TV’s camera and microphone and secretly stalk you—or find your financial information through your computer.
