By September 22, 2017 No Comments

After a long day of driving to your family’s favorite lake destination for a weekend trip, you pull into your vacation rental late at night. Your arms are full of luggage as you make your way to through the front door. Now, you say “Google, turn on the living room lights,” and the PointCentral system easily illuminates the space. With voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, a PointCentral-enabled smart home is easier and more convenient to use than ever.

Voice Assistants Make Life Easier

Tenants and guests staying in rental properties equipped with PointCentral’s solution can now control locks, thermostats, lighting and other Smart Home devices, all with just their voice. For any property with PointCentral Smart Home products, Amazon Echo and Google Home are the perfect add-ons.

56-percent of households currently own a voice-enabled smart home device, and expectation is growing for those same convenient devices to be available at rental properties.

Not only do voice assistants help you lock the doors and turn off the lights, they also set alarms, play music, and search for local restaurants. When property managers combine voice control with their PointCentral Smart Home solution, they enjoy boosted customer satisfaction and loyalty.    

Simplifying your busy schedule

Now, when you’re running out the door of your rental home with your kids in tow, rushing to make it to soccer practice, all you need to say is “Alexa, lock the front door,” and the PointCentral system will do the rest. No more racking your brain on the drive home, trying to remember if you locked the door.

Voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant make controlling your PointCentral enabled smart home easier, and your life more carefree.
