With most people stuck at home for a while, this feels like a great time for sharing stories and inspiring others with your creativity! So because the term “smart home” means something different to everyone, we’d love you to tell us what smart home means to you.
Did you create an amazing scene? Which feature has the biggest impact on your life?
Here’s how to share your smart home story:
1) Choose your best smart home story
2) Make a video, an Instagram story, or just write it up
3) Send it in either via email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by posting it to Facebook or Instagram. Just be sure to use the hashtag #VeraSmartHomeStories and tag our account @veracontrol.
Hi!I have a lot of smart automation scenes, but the one I’m most proud of is probably this one:If someone is coming near our house without a registered smartphone, a virtual dog begins to bark loud inside the house through my Sonos. Lights goes on, one after the other if it´s dark outside. A prerecorded voice starts to talk to the dog. Sounds of someone walking in the stairs comes next. Any intruder is scared of! I get a notification on my phone and are able to look in the cameras. A light version of this scene is also activated at nighttime if we´re all asleep!So who wants to have a real dog, with fur all over the place, and demands food and exercise – when you can have a free, non allergic virtual Vera dog?
We’ll choose our favorites and feature them online. Winners will get a prize from Vera.
