“Alexa, are you there?” There’s no need to ask when you move into select Maracay communities. Residents will be launched into the future of smart home living and have the ability to anticipate nearly all of their everyday needs simply with a swipe on their smartphone or a spoken command.

At Maracay, we’ve teamed up with Amazon to bring Alexa-integrated living into our thoughtfully designed homes, making homeowners’ lives more convenient, comfortable and efficient. Your home will become your haven and the perfect backdrop for your life with Maracay’s HomeSmart® program that allows you to stay in control of your home right from your fingertips.

Save time by starting your morning cup of coffee before getting out of bed. Perhaps you’d like to ask Alexa about the weather or your morning commute time. Did you leave your house in a hurry? No need to worry. With the touch of a button on your smartphone, you can double-check that your doors are locked, turn off the lights or adjust the thermostat, which will help save energy costs. The future of home technology is here and ready to revolutionize your day-to-day experience.

The HomeSmart® package is activated and supported by Amazon and includes Amazon Echo devices and HomeSmart® products designed to work together with Alexa to create a seamless living experience.

With Maracay’s expanded HomeSmart® package, homeowners will receive the latest in-home technology, including:

  • Amazon Echo Spot and Echo Dot: Sleek, compact and hands-free, Alexa-enabled devices are a convenient addition to any of our designer kitchens, great rooms and bedrooms. Ask Alexa to play music, send and receive messages, and control the lights or room temperature simply by speaking, keeping you seamlessly and conveniently connected at all times.
  • Samsung SmartThings Hub: This network-enabled hub will work together with Alexa to help you monitor your home and connect wirelessly with your smart devices, both in your home and remotely.
  • Eero with 2 Beacons: No more buffering or dropped Wi-Fi signals with Eero. This device replaces your router and blankets your home with fast and reliable Wi-Fi connectivity, ensuring every nook and cranny of your new home has Internet access.
  • Ring Pro Doorbell: See visitors at your door and speak to them with the Ring Pro Doorbell via your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. With advanced motion detection, two-way audio and night vision, you will always feel at ease.
  • Wi-Fi Thermostat: Adjust the temperature in your home from your smartphone. Beat the heat or shut out the cold before you get home to make your arrival that much more welcoming.  
  • Leviton Decora Smart: Monitor and control your lights with a voice command or ask Alexa to dim or brighten your lights to fit your needs. Wherever you are, you’ll be able to set the mood.
  • Schlage Connect Door Lock: Feel in control of your home and receive alerts when your door’s lock senses vibrations or movement. The device is compatible with Alexa and your SmartThings Hub, so you will always be in the loop.

Amazon experts are also available to provide you with support and solutions for your in-home technology, easily becoming your new tech-savvy best friend.

From all of us at Maracay, happy smart living!
