Make the TV the Center of Your Smart Home

Adding smart home devices can make your life easier by helping you control the lights, see who’s at the door, and more. But did you know you can control many of those devices with a Sony smart TV? Take a look.

Sony 4K TVs with High Dynamic Range and Android TV, like this 65" class model, have an amazing picture. These TVs also have the Google Assistant built in, so they can be the center of your smart home. Just talk into the remote and you can control hundreds of connected devices, check tomorrow’s schedule, hear the weather and more, right from your couch. And don’t forget about the great picture. Sony’s 4K TVs with HDR give you bright colors and wide contrast. That means colors don’t get washed out and you’ll notice lots of detail in both bright and dark spots in the picture.

You’ll probably want to dim the lights for movie night, right? The Philips Hue Color starter kit lets you do it easily. These smart bulbs easily replace the ones in standard table lamps. Then, you can use the Hue app to create custom lighting looks and set schedules that match your routine. Plus, they work with voice control, like Google Assistant, so you can adjust the lights without lifting a finger.

If you want to see who’s at the door from your living room (or anywhere else), check out Nest Hello. This video doorbell is compatible with Google Assistant and Sony TVs with Android TV. Just ask to see the front door and a live feed from the HD camera will appear on your TV. Nest Hello can also give you peace of mind when you’re not home. It sends alerts to your phone when someone’s at the door, even if they don’t ring the doorbell. You can use the Nest app to listen to who’s there, talk to them or send a pre-recorded quick response. And Nest Hello has night vision, so you’ll always have a great view.
