Brookfield Residential DC Unveils Amazon Alexa Implementation

By   December 17, 2016

Brookfield Residential, a Canadian-based homebuilder and land developer, unveiled its plan to integrate voice recognition into its Smart Home platform at the AWS re:Invent 2016. The company’s Smart Home, located in Northern Virginia in the Avendale community, will feature a wide array of network-connected products that can be activated by voice. The brain behind the new concept is Amazon’s Alexa, an intelligent personal assistant that is capable of voice interaction.

Alexa will provide the occupants with hands-free control for all of the devices connected to the home network. Switch lights on/off, adjust the thermostat, unlock/lock the front door and raise/lower shades, with Alexa. Brookfield Residential’ Echo Home Automation system will also feature a variety of skills to enhance functionality and usability.

Homebuyers will have the option of adding new technology at a later date, because the Smart Home infrastructure will adapt accordingly.
