    How About an "Ok Google"?

    A few handy imperatives and “OK Google” can do wonders to keep you on a not-so-fretful go. SmartHome Revolution embraces the latest IoT technology in home automation providing security as well, besides the usual comfort and convenience that technology boons us with. Thus a vacation is fun, the fear of losing our treasured belongings back at home disappearing, with the help of smart home apps on smartphones or other networked devices.

    Acquiring the whole set of automation would be high-priced but setting up sequentially is recommended. It would be better to start with the door lock and the cameras. As they are the primary safety devices. And while on vacation the Google Home and Assistant icon is to be used more than the Facebook icon, lest all your efforts would go in vain. No location tag on social media.

    With a smartphone and a Google assistant answering to our every-now-and-then whimsical errands, it is time to meet the new Genie, the Google Home App. Google’s procurement of the Nest for $3.2 billion, home automation is seeing new peaks with the passing of each day. So the Nest products are now compatible with Google Home App, however, keeping in mind the smart products available in India, the simple products offered by Flipkart Automation Store, could make our “away from home” an upbeat affair.

    Usage of smart products have changed the way the world works. In India, upto 40% of Smart Watches and Assistants are sold through Flipkart. With the Fit India Movement, Flipkart dreams of a day that every Indian tracks their fitness through Smart Watches, and with #SmartHomeRevolution, Flipkart envisions a day when every home uses Smart Home solutions to simplify mundane tasks with a click. [Courtesy: IndiBlogger
