Smart radiator valves integrate with Alexa for voice-controlled heating
Netatmo has announced the compatibility of its Smart Radiator Valves with Amazon Alexa. This new integration showcases Netatmo’s ability to provide an intuitive and customisable Smart Home experience.
The Netatmo Smart Radiator Valves allow users to control their heating on a room-by-room basis and use on average 37% less energy to heat their home, without compromising on their comfort.
Amazon Echo is a hands-free, voice-controlled speaker. It connects to the Alexa voice service - the brain behind Echo - to change the house temperature, play music, provide information and more, instantly. Users just need to say the word “Alexa” and Echo responds immediately.
“Alexa, increase the temperature in the living room”.
Amazon Echo can help control the heating of the house. Users just need to ask Alexa to change the temperature in any room equipped with Netatmo Valves (“Alexa, set the bathroom temperature to 23 degrees”), increase and decrease it (“Alexa, increase the living room temperature”) and even ask what the temperature of the house is (“Alexa, what is the temperature in the baby’s room?”). The addition of Alexa compatibility adds to the already existing partnerships with Google Home and Apple HomeKit.
The Netatmo Smart Radiator Valves allow users to control their heating on a room-by-room basis from their smartphone and use on average 37% less energy to heat their home. Fitted on hot-water radiators, the Valves regulate the temperature of the room. They set a heating schedule for each room, adapted to the habits of their occupants. From the App, users can customise the temperature of each room in the house.
Netatmo’s Valves act as an accessory to the already Alexa-enabled Netatmo Smart Thermostat. Both products can also be linked to the Netatmo Weather Station, again compatible with Amazon’s voice-controller.
The Netatmo Energy App is free and is compatible with iPhones, from iOS 9 onwards, and Android smartphones from 4.2 onwards. The Netatmo Smart Valves Web App is available on Mac and PC.
