  6. Alarm system activation and deactivation
  7. Music, video streaming and home theater

How To Give Your Home a Voice

How to give your home a voice - smart home technology Myrtle Beach

If Only The Walls Could Talk…

Is that what we are referencing when we say “Give your home a voice?”
Not at all!

We don’t want anyone to know your secrets. Security means home security, cyber security as well as home safety. We don’t want anyone to get to you, your assets or your family.

Whether you live in a large metropolitan area or on the Grand Strand in the Myrtle Beach area like we do, we’ve got something else in mind when we talk about ‘giving your home a voice’!

If only the walls could talk - voice activated smart home technology Myrtle Beach

Introducing Hands Free Voice Control!

How convenient would it be to be able to ‘talk’ to your home and for things to ‘magically’ happen?

“Turn on the lights”

“Close the blinds”

“Turn on the TV”

“Lock the garage door”

“Arm the security system”

Better yet, you can create sequences that will do it all – with one simple command.

For example;

‘Wake up’  ➡️ your system might raise the shades, adjust your thermostat and turn off lights! or

‘Bed time’ ➡️ your system might lock your doors, arm your system, adjust your thermostat and turn on outside lights.

How can you get in on this awesomeness?!

Tuxedo Touch™ by Honeywell

The tuxedo touch is

is intuitive, easy to learn and easy to use whether you’re controlling your security and home control functions, viewing and recording video, or using voice commands.
