Control Your Smart Home with Amazon Echo

Control Your Smart Home with Amazon Echo

What's better than having a fully automated smart home you can control from your phone or tablet? Having one that's voice-controlled! With the new Amazon Echo, you can do just that.

Alexa has already proven she can manage your calendar, read you a book and even tell you jokes, and now she can help turn your home into something from Star Trek.

Integrating the Amazon Echo in your home automation system gives you the ability to turn off your lights, open your blinds, turn up the heating or open the gate, all without lifting a finger. Just ask Alexa to do it for you!

What's even better is that she can do multiple tasks with one phrase. With the FIbaro Home Controller, you can set a scene that will open the blinds, turn on the kettle and play your favourite radio station, all by saying "Alexa, turn on morning mode".
