Everyone is talking about Amazon Echo. And to Amazon Alexa. Including SMART+. The voice-powered assistant is increasingly making connections with different household gadgets. You can address Alexa and control your individual lighting by voice. Here you can find out how this works and revolutionize your home lighting.
Put this idea out there a couple of decades ago and people may have laughed at you: in disbelief. The thought of talking to your household gadgets may have seemed far-fetched or too futuristic to take seriously. However, today such an idea is a reality – and increasingly popular.
Introducing Amazon Alexa
Amazon Echo is a smart speaker. A smart device that responds to the name “Alexa”. Upon request, Alexa can (among other things) tell you the time, update you on the weather, play music, set alarms, create shopping lists and respond to questions regarding your calendar. And control the home lighting - via SMART+.
Alexa meets SMART+
You can control SMART+ products via Alexa. The only thing you need in addition is a smart lighting system. For instance OSRAM LIGHTIFY or Philips Hue. Connect the gateway of one of these systems to Amazon Echo. And connect the SMART+ lamps and luminaires wireless with the gateway.
And soon you can start. Say: “Alexa, turn on the lights in the living room” – and the living room lights turn on. Say: “Alexa, dim the lights” – and there you have it. Thanks to Alexa, you may never again have to get off the sofa or out of your warm bed to adjust the lighting. Sounds like a great roommate to us!
