Pssst. It’s me, your smart house. Just wanted to give you an update of what’s going on at home. The bus is almost here, and I’m busy getting ready for the kids.
Your smart thermostat just kicked in, making the house the perfect temperature. I’ll make sure your kids don’t mess with it, too.

Dinner in the slow cooker smells delish. I’ll make sure it turns to warm when it’s done. Don’t want to burn that culinary goodness you’re making. And I certainly don’t want to waste energy. (Am I repeating myself here?)
Beep! Beep! I just sent you a text. The kids are home and, hey, they actually closed the garage door themselves this time.
