Get Smart With Trendmaker Homes and Alexa

Get Smart With Trendmaker Homes and Alexa

January 02, 2019

Imagine turning on your lights, turning up your thermostat and even putting the coffee on just by saying “good morning.” It’s possible now that Trendmaker Homes has teamed up with Amazon to offer you an even smarter home.

Trendmaker is expanding its popular HomeSmart® technology package to include Amazon Alexa, integrating all of your smart home devices for seamless living.

HomeSmart® is the builder’s suite of state-of-the-art home technology and automation features. The package is free and includes:

-- Echo Show, Echo Dot or Fire TV Cube
-- 3-hour initial setup and activation appointment with an Amazon Expert
-- 90 days of support from Amazon
-- Eero Home WiFi System and two beacons that provide fast and reliable wireless internet coverage
-- Minimum of 2 WiFi-connected smart light switches
-- WiFi-connected smart thermostats
-- Ring Video Doorbell Pro
-- Samsung SmartThings Smart Hub or Wink 2 Smart Hub

The devices also can be controlled through smartphone and tablet apps, increasing both convenience and security. With the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, for example, you can see who is at the door and speak with visitors. You can even open the door for UPS or tradesmen from your office.

Alexa adds an extra dimension because all smart technology devices can be controlled through a set of pre-programmed “Skills.” What can Alexa do? She can stream Spotify, order pizza, turn on your smart television, create shopping lists and — most importantly — turn on that smart coffee maker you got for Christmas.

You don’t even have to be a technology nerd to get started because an Amazon Expert will come out to your home and do all of the work for you. You’ll also get 90 days of free tech support from Amazon — just in case you have questions.

All Trendmaker homes in Sienna Plantation include the HomeSmart® package. The luxury homes are situated on spacious 85-foot homesites. Choose from 12 floor plans starting from the $540,000s to the $640,000s. The 12 plans range from 3,614 - 4,932 square feet.
