The Brookfield Residential Smart Home, built in close collaboration with Amazon, integrates voice-enabled automation, incorporating the best-selling Alexa platform.

Created by the team in the homebuilder's Washington, D.C., division, The Smart Home will be open daily for tours at the popular Avendale community in Northern Virginia. Home shoppers can see for themselves how this technology makes life easier and more convenient.

"This is how we're all going to live," said division president Robert Hubbell. "There's no reason to wait. We couldn't be more thrilled to offer voice-enabled automation to our homebuyers at many of our new communities."

A walk through the Brookfield Residential Smart Home reveals a variety of extremely useful technologies triggered by the spoken word. With just your voice, you can:

  • Check the security camera
  • Lock the door
  • Turn on lights
  • Raise the shades
  • Water the lawn
  • Pre-heat the oven
  • Change the thermostat
  • Play your favorite music
  • And many more features

Brookfield also created custom capabilities, where a single command triggers multiple actions. In the owner's bathroom suite, for example, the command "Alexa, Turn on Relax" prompts The Smart Home to lower the shades, dim the overhead lights, illuminate a star panel on the ceiling and play soothing spa music.

Brookfield Residential's D.C. division has earned a reputation for innovating through a series of forward-thinking concept homes and technology-driven initiatives.

"This is the most technologically advanced home that we've ever built," Hubbell said. "But this is only the beginning."
