Fourth of July Smart Home Devices:

Prepare the smartest hot dogs and hamburgers known to man, with the installation of a Lynx Smart Grill. We know what you’re thinking - what is a smart grill? The Lynx Smart Grill is a powerful machine, a hybrid of traditional craftsmanship and technology.

Create the perfect temperature and time your food even more perfectly with Lynx Smart Grill.

The grill itself has a small brigade of sensors connected to a built-in computer that lets you grill all of your favorite foods through the internet. Let's say you've got a meeting at four and a BBQ planned at seven - do both and avoid leaving hungry Fourth of July party-goers waiting for grilled goods.


Amazon Alexa

Alexa is another smart device that will ensure you woo your guests, and show them just how smart your home is by making Alexa entertain a crowd.

Tell Alexa to sing happy birthday (to America) in celebration of the Fourth of July, say the pledge of allegiance, or tell a Fourth of July joke. Beyond the cute gimmicks - Alexa is actually quite useful. In total, there are more than 15,000 possible commands.

For instance, say someone sends you a text message to let you know they are arriving late, with Alexa, set up hands-free texting and respond to guests in seconds. Party hosts can even send directions via Google Maps.

With your new smart home goodies, you’re sure to become the hit of the block and your home will likely become the new party spot. To put the cherry on the Sundae, have Puls’s skilled technicians install a home speaker system that plays music no matter where you’re located in your home!

This thermostat might have a sleek design, but beyond that, it allows you to keep yourself and guests cool during hot summer days and nights.

Link the ecobee4 to Amazon Alexa and keep guests cool with voice commands, set to vacation mode when you're away, set reminders/alerts and schedule your AC to turn on while away, so you never have to come home to a hot house.

The worst part of having a BBQ is the cleaning that occurs after everyone leaves. One of the messiest aspects is usually the grill.

Enter Grillbot. This device is essentially a small robotic vacuum cleaner for grills. The process of cleaning is simple - just place Grillbot directly on your grill and watch it clean away.
