Sometimes stress feels inevitable. We stress because dinner has to be cooked, work has to be done, family needs to be taken care of, and at the end of the day, we stress because we don’t want to miss our favorite shows!
Lennar feels your pain.
That’s why, as South Florida’s #1 new homebuilder, we’ve made it our mission to find innovative enhancements that make your life as easy as possible. Every new home built in the Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in 2018 will be equipped with smart-home integration through Amazon Alexa. And in honor of April being National Stress Awareness Month, we’ve compiled a list to show you how you can live a less stressful life with Amazon Alexa in a Lennar home.
Alexa does a lot more than play music with voice activation. Below are five ways she can help reduce your stress in a Lennar home:
- Make Dinner a Breeze: With Amazon Alexa, dinner’s a piece of cake (not literally)! On busy weeknights, preparing a healthy and delicious meal for the family can be anything but easy. When you simply don’t know what to cook, it’s often tempting to stop and pick up nearby fast food. But with this smart home technology, you can minimize those last-minute, panicked fast food runs. Amazon Alexa can give you inspiration by providing healthy recipes, playing relaxing music while you cook, and even offering a few tips like how to convert measurements. Plus, if you need to preheat the oven or set a timer remotely, Alexa has you covered.
- Remember When You Forget: We’ve all experienced those days when we’re running out of our homes carrying three bags, a child, and missing one shoe. And it’s only when you get to your destination – or at least half way there – when you finally realize that you forgot to turn off the oven or lock the front door. Thankfully, with the Alexa app, you can control your home with the touch of a finger to ensure everything is locked down, turned off, and at ease (we’re talking about you, here).
- Ask and You Shall Receive: Stress often rears its ugly head when we’re confused or unable to find the answers we need quickly. Just by listening to the sound of your voice, Alexa can perform a quick Internet search and find the answer you truly need, whether it’s how to fix a child’s toy, how to prevent a clogged drain from flooding, or what to do when you dog eats a roll of toilet paper (yes, this happens!).
- Keep Your Kids Busy: Whether you love to alleviate stress by spending time with your family or enjoying a quiet nap while the kids entertain themselves, Amazon Alexa offers exactly what you need. With trivia, jeopardy, and create-your-own adventure games, as well as inside jokes and music, you can host a family gathering full of laughter. Or, for some down time, let Alexa read personalized bedtime stories to your children for a cozy afternoon nap.
- Organize Effortlessly: While she’s entertaining your kids, Alexa is also ensuring you’re as organized as possible. She can create different to-do lists, help you research trip information, and add events to your calendar. And she can even remind you to take a daily, guided meditation session to boost mental health. Keep Alexa’s mind full, so yours can be mindful.
Not only will every new Lennar home have Amazon Alexa technology, but it will also feature other solutions to keep you as stress-free as possible, such as a video doorbell and energy efficient Wi-Fi thermostat.
And the best part of all – you don’t have to worry about the setup for any of this technology. After all, complex installations would only worsen your stress!
Thankfully, your Lennar home comes pre-wired with all of this fantastic technology, while Amazon offers 90-day Smart Home Support to provide the time you need to adjust and learn everything the system can do.
Lennar goes above and beyond, offering this incredible technology – and the stress-free convenience of having it all set up for you – at a great value. Keep your family healthy, stress-free, and happier in a home built by Lennar.
