If you’ve somehow managed to miss the memo about Amazon Alexa, our guess is you’ve been living under a rock. Alexa is Amazon’s voice control system, which has taken over the Smart Home with a multitude of essential integrations. Now, it has one more on that list!
Alexa is a breeze to operate – using only your voice and leaving your smartphone aside. All you have to do is say “Alexa” (or the devices’ other names: “Echo”, “Amazon” or “Computer”), followed by the command you wish to perform, based on the device, and magic! It will be done. All you have to do is make sure you’ve properly set up the services or devices you wish to use with Alexa, and then find the right commands for a seamless experience. In the Smart Home, Alexa is especially meaningful since it lets you control your connected devices without having to take out your phone and launch the app, essentially cutting back the time you need to spend on daily tasks; everything from switching on lights, searching online, playing music or creating to-do lists, with the number of available commands growing by the minute!
After months of testing and hard work, the newest addition (and one we’re particularly proud of) is the Ambi Climate & Alexa integration!
The integration is now LIVE and public – all you have to do is go to your Amazon Alexa app (iOS or Android), search for “Ambi Climate” under Skills, follow the steps and you’re good to go! There are various commands you can use for Alexa x Ambi:
- Turn your device/s on or off
- Set a default device, in case you have multiple ones on your Ambi app, so that you don’t need to specify that default location when commanding Alexa
- Give feedback about how you feel so that Ambi can learn and adjust the air conditioner accordingly
- Ask Alexa about the current temperature based on Ambi Climate’s sensor data
All commands must be “Ask Ambi” + command you wish to perform, and Alexa will do the rest for you. Get rid of your phone and make using Ambi Climate even easier – we didn’t think it was possible, but it is!
