Las Vegas Home Expo showcases traditional trappings, high-tech options for homes

The three-day expo at Cashman Center may not have been CES — the international consumer electronics show that brings a gadgetry wonderland to Las Vegas every January — but the small showing of home automation systems suggests high-tech offerings for the home are not just for techies anymore.

“Alexa, turn the party on,” Kevin Kelly said into an Amazon Echo, a Bluetooth speaker that connects to other home electronics.

Home security companies ADT and Vivint joined Power Up Nevada to offer the ability to control home systems with the tap of a smartphone screen.

Vivint offers the same systems as ADT, salesman Joseph Edwards said. Once you pay off your equipment, you get to keep it. The company charges users $50 per month to keep their services running.
