Ford’s Linking SYNC with Home Automation (Amazon’s Echo and Wink)

At the Consumer Electronic Show today, Ford demonstrated linking smart devices like Amazon Echo and Wink to its vehicles to allow consumers to control lights, thermostats, security systems and other features of their homes from their car, and to stop, start, lock, unlock and check their vehicle’s fuel range from the comforts of their home.  Ford is developing ways to pair millions of SYNC®-equipped vehicles globally with home automation devices or smart home products.  For more on this topic, read the Ford press release, “Smart Cars Meet Smart Homes” or watch the Ford video with a C-MAX on youtube.
