Coast to coast

The Smart Life Roadshow hit the road in September and will be visiting two dozen locations from Atlanta to San Jose before making its final stop at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January of 2019. Along the way, the Roadshow will be making stops at Amazon Books locations and a number of colleges and universities including Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech, Texas, Cal Poly and a host of others.

 

When it comes to choosing the right smart home technology for your home, the amount of information available can be overwhelming. Research is key, as is staying up to date on current – and future – tech trends. The Smart Life Roadshow, with the help of Amazon and its innovation partners, is a great resource for both.

Home security drives most home automation decisions. - Schlage

The road to success

Integrating smart home technology into your home is easier and more affordable than you may think. You can do it yourself and you can get started for less than $500.

 

Start with practical considerations. For instance, home security is the number one factor driving most home automation decisions, so connecting to your security system and adding a smart lock are a great place to start. How you wish to control your system (and the platform upon which to build it), is also important.

 

Most systems are proprietary and require that you base your product choices on a particular system protocol (Z-Wave versus Zigbee, for instance). The products you add to your system, from remote lighting to something as innovative as Amazon Key, should be chosen with particular attention paid to compatibility and how they complement your other home automation technologies.

Smart home technology at your fingertips

Schlage has partnered with Amazon and the Smart Life Roadshow because it’s the perfect expression of Schlage’s century-old commitment to innovation.

 

Schlage’s first patent in 1909 was actually for a door lock that could turn a home’s lights on and off; a concept that led to the inspiration behind some of the most requested features of home automation technology today: security, home automation and the remote control of key home systems. So it makes sense that Schlage would bring security as well as convenience and access control to the partnership.

 

Amazon’s vision is to be earth's most customer-centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online. Schlage’s own notion is to make technology accessible enough for everyone to benefit from it. To Schlage, the greatest benefit is when the idea becomes practical.

 

Explore the possibilities that Schlage opens in home automation security; look for more updates from the road and follow the Amazon Smart Life Roadshow on Facebook and Instagram. The reach and vision of Amazon. The safety, simplicity and style of Schlage. Together, they’re bringing it home.
