Since opening its doors at grand opening events for home shoppers and for key industry professionals, The Smart Home continues to earn rave reviews. And Brookfield Residential has earned kudos for its close collaboration with Amazon to introduce voice-enabled automation into its award-winning home designs.

“We’ve been thrilled with the positive response we’ve received from everyone who has seen the Smart Home,” said Robert Hubbell, president of Brookfield’s Washington, D.C., division. “We’re proud to be at the forefront of a revolution in modern living and voice-enabled home automation. And we’re only getting started.”

The first communities to receive Smart Home packages will be Avendale in Bristow, Virginia; Potomac Shores in Prince William County, Virginia; Travilah Station in North Potomac, Maryland; and Heritage Shores, a 55+ Active Lifestyle Community in Bridgeville, Delaware.

Brookfield Residential is leading the first wave of production homebuilders integrating this level of home automation. With just their voice, a homeowner can check the security camera, lock the door, turn on lights, change the thermostat, play a favorite song and much more.

By collaborating with Amazon, Brookfield Residential has future-proofed its home automation technology, ensuring that new capabilities can be added as they become available.

“We envision a future in which Smart Home technology allows a Brookfield homeowner to control even more of their home with just their voice,” Hubbell said. This is just one more way that we go the extra mile to make our homeowners’ lives easier, more convenient and simply better.”
