There's something magical in my garage! All I have to do is say "Alexa, garage on" and all the fans and lights just turn on! It's magic, I say, magical!
Really, its just smart home technology at its best! With only two different Leviton smart home products, we've been able to automate four fans, and 8 lights in the garage. These of course can be individually turned on, but Alexa gets the job done fast and the garage starts to cool off almost before we've closed the door.
Read on to see how we used them, and then think about what you might want to automate in your home.
I'm still amazed every time I say to Alexa, "garage on," and everything turns on immediately. This automation of the lights and fans has simplified the use of them.
When working in the hot garage, we want ALL the fans running at full blast. Automation gets them started immediately which means the garage is a much more comfortable space. I'm sure once we have a bit of cold weather we will be switching these out for heaters. (One can only dream of cooler weather!)
What do you want to automate in your home?
