There are also voice controlled personal assistants like Alexa and Google Home that allow you to control your home. While your hands are busy preparing dinner you can still be the perfect host for your guests. You can use your voice to play music, cast videos to your TV, or order a pizza while they wait.
These same conveniences are available on the go as mobile devices today have sensors, GPS, and computing power that surpasses capabilities of computer from years ago. So, this holiday, be thankful, you can tell your assistant to order, pay, and deliver your groceries instead of standing in those long lines at the grocery store.
Homes now include lots of internet enabled sensors and the ability to control and monitor your home remotely. No need to worry what you left the thermostat on or whether the front door is locked once you get to your parents’ house. You can easily control all those things from your mobile device and focus on watching the football game and enjoying all the festivities.
Once you’ve eaten one plate too many during Thanksgiving your wearable device will make it easy for you to know how many steps you need to walk to be sure you can fit into your outfit for the office holiday party next week. Let’s continue to utilize the new capabilities that are available to make our lives and businesses run as efficiently and effectively as possible. Happy Thanksgiving!
