Aaron's home automation setup
'I'm the kind of guy that likes to just set it and forget it,' Aaron said. 'I just set it up and then program everything into my controllers [so] my scenes and automations [will] kick on and off automatically. And then if I want to talk to the integration, like Echo, I can tell Echo throughout my house to do different things.'
One cool example Aaron shared with me is that when he gets home, his garage door opens and his interior door unlocks by the simple act of his phone entering the geo-fenced area around his house. Then, using sensors, he automated his internal lights to come on, music to start, and his exterior lights to go off when both of those doors have closed. From there, he has a variety of commands that can be triggered using Amazon Echo based on whatever his next move is.
As Aaron says, 'your system makes it very easy ... the switches are very easy to integrate especially as a homebuyer,' which is an important component of Deako products. Deako light switches can function as a standalone system, or be easily integrated with a variety of smart home products, as Aaron has experienced firsthand.
