A DIY smart home is elegant and comforting — it’s where you have complete control over everything in it. Your home is your castle, and it’s easy to make everything in it obey your commands.

All you need to do is plan a weekend’s project to take full control over the things in it.

Speak, And Be Heard

By now, there’s no doubt you’ve heard about home assistant devices like Alexa or Google Home. With these, you can command virtual assistants to help you with whatever you need. They’re like a search engine you can use with your voice, inside your home.

If you need a recipe or need to call a friend, just let Alexa or Google know. Either will automatically fetch a recipe that matches what you’re looking for. They can also make calls through your smartphone for you.

In essence, these virtual assistants act as central hubs for your home’s devices. They can even adjust the kind of lighting in your home, or change the temperature. All you need are the right tools to go with them.

Gadgets, Gadgets, And More Gadgets

Lightbulbs like the Philip Hue can adjust their colors and intensity to match whatever mood you may be in during the day. Your lighting can also be automatically adjusted based on the time of day, or the day itself.

If you prefer to relax on Sunday, go for a light blue in your room. Friday partiers may want brighter colors shifting between each other.

Robot vacuums like Roombas can also be controlled through your smartphone or home assistant. Just tell your Alexa or Google Home device that you want your carpet cleaned, and your robot will get to work. You can even control your Wi-Fi signal with your voice, as long as you have the right gadgets.
