Harness the Power of Your Voice to Control Your Home
TAGS: Alexa | Control4 Dealer | Home Theater | Lighting Automation System | Smart Home Control | Voice Commands
Voice control is a long sought-after technology. The first practical voice-control unit was made by Bell Labs in 1962, a device called the ‘Shoebox.’ It recognized a voice speaking the numbers 0-9 and a few mathematical commands. We have come a long way since then, with voice command ‘smart speakers’ becoming nearly ubiquitous.
While voice control is now more popular, not all implementations offer the same feature sets or flexibility level. Control4 has embraced voice commands as an interface from very early on and now supports complete home automation. Whether you are looking to control a single device or your entire Santa Fe, CA home system, as a Control4 dealer, we can happily state that it is our favorite system to integrate with Alexa.

You may not know this, but there are other options besides traditional routers that connect your devices to the home Wi-Fi. Mesh networks are becoming more common in households all over California as an alternative to standard routers.
A router is a central hub that syncs with traffic from your favorite devices like your laptop and tablets. But a mesh network contains multiple “nodes” that spread the Wi-Fi signal while keeping it powerful. Cooperation is the name of the game when it comes to mesh networks.
Along with the advantages of a mesh network, there are also some disadvantages. At One Touch Living, our team of professionals can help you decide whether or not a mesh network is right for you and your home in Rancho Santa Fe.
