Amazon Alexa device - Aliento New Homes Santa Clarita

Ask Alexa at Aliento

Posted on 11 Sep, 2019

Are you looking for a modern master-planned community with the latest technology that also focuses on energy efficiency? Look no further than Aliento. Tucked away in the hills of Santa Clarita, Aliento is a new home community close to work, retail, entertainment and the LA lifestyle, while providing extraordinary amenities, parks and open space.

Not only is Aliento a beautifully designed community, but homes also include the LivingSmart® program, which helps the environment while saving you money. The program is made of five areas of advancement that work together to make your everyday life a little easier – and a lot more comfortable. The five areas are HealthSmart®, EnergySmart®, EarthSmart®, WaterSmart® and HomeSmart®.

All new homes at Aliento come equipped with a HomeSmart technology package that helps you stay in control and connected from anywhere, while saving energy. While all packages are slightly different, most homes include an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, Schlage® smart deadbolt, Ring™ Video Doorbell, eero mesh Wi-Fi system and a Samsung SmartThings Hub to connect them all. The Wi-Fi system covers your entire home, so you can use all your smart home devices and still have the bandwidth to stream your favorite TV shows. The smart devices are designed to work with Amazon’s Alexa, creating seamless living. You can control them by simply speaking to Alexa. And, when you’re away from home, you can adjust things with the swipe of a finger on your smartphone or tablet.

Your smart devices also work in partnership with the EnergySmart package. LED lighting, Lutron® dimmer switches and Honeywell smart thermostats all help save energy and lower your electric bill. Ask Alexa to turn off the kitchen lights, dim the living room lights to 50 percent or set the temperature to 72 degrees. You can even turn on the front porch lights and adjust the temperature while you’re still at the office.

And there is so much more Alexa can do. Set up a morning routine so she’ll give you the day’s weather forecast, a 5-minute news update and what’s on your calendar for the day – all by saying, “Alexa, good morning.”

The fun continues with the games and music Alexa can play. Invite friends and family over for a game night and ask Alexa to play Jeopardy, Twenty Questions, the SpongeBob Challenge and many more. And when you need tunes for your next party, use Bluetooth® speakers to play music throughout your home or in the backyard for a party. Ask Alexa to play your “Friday Night” playlist from Spotify or Pandora and you won’t have to worry about DJing.

These are just some of the many ways Alexa can assist you in your day-to-day life, saving you time and energy, and letting you focus on what really matters.
