At home today, your virtual assistant can notify you of today’s weather, top news stories, traffic conditions and the time it will take to get to your first appointment. The assistant opens your blinds, turns on the kitchen lights, sets your thermostat, and plays your morning music playlist throughout the house. You can see the driveway camera on your TV to check if it snowed. When you leave for the day, it sets the daytime temperature of the house, turns off the lights, turns off the TV, disarms the alarm, unlocks the front door, and opens the garage door. As you leave, the front door automatically locks, the alarm is armed and the garage door shuts.
