The shades gently rise and let in the sun. Your bedroom TV turns on at a low volume with your favorite news show, and you gradually awake.
In the shower, the house-wide speakers continue playing the news. In the kitchen, the shades are already up, the coffee has been made, and cartoons are automatically on for the kids to watch.
Leaving for work, you click a single button on your iPhone. The shades close, thermostat rises to conserve energy, lights and TV turn off, and the alarm system is set.
