“This is how we’re all going to live,” said division president Robert Hubbell. “There’s no reason to wait. We couldn’t be more thrilled to offer voice-enabled automation to our homebuyers at many of our new communities.”
A walk through the Brookfield Residential Smart Home reveals a variety of extremely useful technologies triggered by the spoken word. With just your voice, you can:
Check the security camera
Lock the door
Turn on lights
Raise the shades
Water the lawn
Pre-heat the oven
Change the thermostat
Play your favorite music
And many more features
Brookfield also created custom capabilities, where a single command triggers multiple actions. In the owner’s bathroom suite, for example, the command “Alexa, Turn on Relax” prompts The Smart Home to lower the shades, dim the overhead lights, illuminate a star panel on the ceiling and play soothing spa music.
Brookfield Residential’s D.C. division has earned a reputation for innovating through a series of forward-thinking concept homes and technology-driven initiatives.
“This is the most technologically advanced home that we’ve ever built,” Hubbell said. “But this is only the beginning.”
