You’ll also get a first look at the wave of personal robots to hit the market in 2017. On display will be Google Home, developed by Google, which becomes your personal assistant as soon as you set it up. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google assistant, always ready to help around the home. Just start by saying, “Ok, Google.”
Less “gadgety” smart options are also on display at the Smart Home Showcase. Learn to protect your home from bacteria and allergens with microbicidal paint. Enforce your walls with super strong drywall that can withstand the rigors of home and family life.
Several simple products effortlessly reimagine the way you live at home and interact with even the simplest devices. For example, the Kevo deadbolt gives you the luxury of never having to fumble around for your keys again. Simply activate it with a touch of your finger and the Kevo lock allows safe entry to your home.
A Temporary Passkey
Got out of town guests coming? With the Kevo device, you can give a temporary passkey to an AirBnB or other homeshare customer without having to give your physical keys over to another person. Once their stay is done, simply deactivate the passkey and go on with your normal activities and never once fear for your family’s safety.
You’ll Want to Make Every Room “Smart”
“It’s one thing to know that something is happening – that you left a window open, or that the hot water heater is leaking,” says Spanton. “It’s another, more important thing to be able to do something about it. That’s the way ‘Internet of Things’ products for the home are evolving.”
World of Possibilities
This is why you’re going to love the Smart Home Showcase. The products you’ll see and demonstrations you’ll witness open to you up to a whole new world of possibilities for protecting your home and loved ones.
Special event-only promotions are available for many of the products on display, and these promos help you to make the little splurges on your home that you’ve been waiting for. This is one showcase event you don’t want to miss!
