Did you remember the Clapper? Clapper is a sound activated electrical switch sold by Joseph Enterprises and marketed with the slogan “Clap on, clap off”! These devices were built on the notion that remote controls weren’t nearly convenient enough. So, they allowed people to operate appliances without getting up! Today we have got smartphones or tablets for that. Right? Using today’s technology, we are able to control and monitor the lights, the locks, the switches, the blinds with a touch of a button! We have total control of our home! Isn’t this great?

The booming smart home industry is giving consumers the ability to explore the experience of living in a smart space with so many intelligent features that may sound too good to be true, but I assure you it isn’t. The voice control of your home is truly one of the most incredible experiences! You can say things like “turn on the lights”, “turn off the thermostat” or “lock the door” and your home will know what you mean. Using short commands related to home automation you are able to control and manage all your smart devices only with your voice. Ok, you might think that this is quite difficult or it is not ready for consumers yet. However, the era of speaking to your house has arrived! It’s great to be able to speak to your smart home controlling and managing all your smart devices only with your voice!
