Voice Assistants – Amazon, Google or Apple?

Amazon, Apple, and Google all have their own voice assistants that you can use to assist in controlling your home’s smart devices, but out of the three which is one is the best one to purchase?  All three are great, however, when it boils down to present day compatibility, Amazon’s 2nd generation echo pulls ahead of the other two with having the most compatible smart home devices.  However, support for both Apple and Google is growing.

Security Cameras

Netgear’s ARLO Q 1080p camera offers some of the best video quality for both day and night available on the market.  On top of this, the camera also has superb motion detection and an intuitive and flexible scheduling feature.  It also features 2-way audio, instant notification if motion sensors are triggered, and a 130-degree field of view.
Smart Thermostats

One of the most popular smart thermostats across the nation to date is the Ecobee series. It has built-in Alexa voice service, far-field voice technology and room sensor capabilities.  The room sensors will detect hot and / or cold spots and with the appropriate heating and cooling system be able to deliver conditioned air to the areas of the home that matter the most.

It is compatible with most heating and cooling systems and support for humidifiers, dehumidifiers, ventilators, HRV and ERVs.  The thermostat can also determine the amount of heating or cooling it needs to deliver based upon the room sensors, local weather reports and your programmed schedule in order to give the most efficient indoor comforts possible.

Light Bulbs

Philips Hue White bulbs are one of the most popular smart light bulbs sold and the starter kit comes with two bulbs and a hub to connect other smart home devices too.

You can also establish a schedule for the devices connected to it to turn on and off at set times.  The HS105 can also be connected to other smart home systems such as Alexa, Google Home, and more.

Smoke / Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The Nest protect is a combination detector that will detect not only smoke but carbon monoxide also. It’s sensors are also able to detect not only slow burning fires but fast ones also.  One of the coolest features of the Nest Protect is that if there is a fire, it will alert you with what room in the home the fire is located, and it can be linked to other smart devices, such as the Philips Hue lights in order to have them automatically turn on when there is an emergency.

Smart Locks

The August Smart Lock Pro has features that can alert you if the door is left ajar and works in conjunction with most other smart home systems such as Alexa, Google, Apple and more. It also can be paired with the August Doorbell Cam.
