BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Brookfield Residential introduced its latest new home project, The Smart Home powered by Amazon Alexa. The Brookfield Residential Smart Home, built in close collaboration with Amazon, integrates voice-enabled automation, incorporating the Alexa platform.

Created by the team in the homebuilder’s Washington, D.C., division, The Smart Home will be open daily for tours at the popular Avendale community in Northern Virginia. Home shoppers can see for themselves how this technology makes life easier and more convenient.

A walk through the Brookfield Residential Smart Home reveals a variety of technologies triggered by the spoken word. With just your voice, you can:

  • Check the security camera
  • Lock the door
  • Turn on lights
  • Raise the shades
  • Water the lawn
  • Pre-heat the oven
  • Change the thermostat
  • Play your favorite music
  • And many more features

Brookfield also created custom capabilities, where a single command triggers multiple actions. In the owner’s bathroom suite, for example, the command “Alexa, Turn on Relax” prompts The Smart Home to lower the shades, dim the overhead lights, illuminate a star panel on the ceiling and play soothing spa music.
