The Netatmo Smart Radiator Valves allow users to voice-controlled heating on a room-by-room basis and save energy to heat their home, without giving up 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. So users just need to say the word “Alexa” and Echo responds immediately.
“Alexa, increase the temperature in the living room”
Amazon Echo can help you voice-controlled 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”). It can also 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?”). By simply asking Alexa, users improve their comfort at home without lifting a finger.
The Netatmo Smart Radiator Valves allow users to control their heating on a room-by-room basis from their smartphone. 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 of the Netatmo Smart Thermostat, already Alexa-enable. Both products add to the Netatmo Weather Station, also compatible with Amazon’s voice-controller.
