Create the Right Environment for Newborns
You’ve finally put the baby to sleep and want to remember exactly what calmed them down. Use your smart home system to save the settings for the next evening. Pick the lighting levels, shade selection, music, and temperature using the touch interface on an iPad or in-wall touch screen. You can even label the scene, like “Goodnight Sweetheart,” so you can easily recall it at a moment’s notice. Hit one button and the nursery will instantly transform into a cozy and comforting environment – perfect for putting your baby to sleep and allowing you to get some much-needed sleep.
Wake up the Whole Family Automatically
Fast-forward 10 years and it’s time to wake your kids up and get them ready for school. You can create a ‘Wake up’ setting that helps everyone get out of bed in the morning. Each room in the house can be customized to the person’s preferences. For example, in your bedroom, the in-ceiling speakers will play your favorite song exactly at 6 a.m. and the volume will slowly get louder as the shades open and let in the morning sun. At the same time, your mirror TV turns on the news so you can catch the traffic and weather report as you brush your teeth. Meanwhile, your daughter’s room lights gently rise to a bright level and her morning cartoon show turns on in the living room downstairs to get her moving. In your teenage son’s room, the shades open to lift his sleepy eyes and his favorite music playlist turns on as well. Your smart coffee pot wakes up too so that there’s a hot cup of joe for everyone downstairs. If you want to check in on any family member, you can use an HD intercom and talk to them through the audio system.
