07 Jun Your Wish Is My Command: Experience Amazon Echo at California Corporate Housing
The key to your future in this wired world is not the smartphone or the iPhone but Amazon Echo, which you can experience, just using the sound of your voice, in condo, apartment, and housing units offered by California Corporate Housing.
Imagine the ultimate in sound-and-music leisure time. Once you enter your home and lock the door behind you to enjoy precious ‘Me’ time, you can ask Amazon Echo to play your favorite hit from Taylor Swift to Beyonce to the Dave Matthews Band, without having to go through the hassle of searching through all your music apps. Or if you’d rather hear the news, again just ask for it and Amazon Echo will read you the latest development as simply and as efficiently as if you were listening to a podcast or radio. Or if you want to catch up on the latest e-thriller but your eyes are too tired to go over the screen, Amazon Echo can again read the latest chapter while you have dinner or chill out in the jacuzzi. Finally, after a hard day’s work, as soon as you plop into bed, you tell Amazon Echo to turn off the lights, lower the thermostat, and wake you up at 5 a.m. to get you in time for your 7 a.m. meeting.
You can do all these without opening your laptop or clicking through a dozen apps. You can have Amazon Echo arrange through your schedule the next day or go through your playlist, while you’re moving from one room to another in your apartment. The software recognizes your voice and will execute your orders. It can hear you and record your instructions even though the music is playing loud enough to mute every other noise in the room.
Amazon Echo has given a whole new life to the twist of the “smart home.” With new partnerships and their capabilities being added to it from a whole range of industries from Domino’s Pizza to Uber’s car services, what we are seeing is just the beginning. The companies that have jumped on the Amazon Echo bandwagon to link their “skills” (formerly known as services) to its interface have jumped from 14 to 950 in just a few months’ time, from September 2015 to May 2016.
While rivals Google and Facebook are revving their engines to catch up, California residents, guests, and tourists can experience this elevated kind of living at California Corporate Housing which has installed Amazon Echo in its units including those in Santa Clara; San Jose; Mountain View; Palo Alto; Redwood City; San Mateo; and Sunnyvale. Northern California has gained international prominence for tech leadership and those who live within its boundaries will be among the first to plug in Amazon Echo into their daily lives.
While it frees your hands to continue working that laptop or preparing your dinner, Amazon Echo can keep you up to speed about the latest developments in your industry or the most popular pop tune that has been uploaded from Justin Bieber’s (okay, you really meant Drake) concert. This convenience helps you save energy and removes some of your stress, as you relax into the music while checking up on work. It also instills in you the confidence that you will wake up on time, literally ready to face the day, through sunshine and rain, rising heat or the cold and damp. Amazon Echo will also give you a heads-up on the weather, too.
With Amazon Echo, California Corporate Housing Corp. transforms your 21st century abode into a warm, welcoming, and thinking home that has anticipated some of your needs and will further make your every waking or sleeping hour in it both peaceful and productive.
