Control4 Integration with Amazon's Alexa Brings Voice Command to Your Smart Home

In September, Control 4 announced that Alexa could now integrate with Control4’s home automation system. Alexa was already your personal DJ and information system. Now she can turn on your lights and adjust the temperature in your home. With Amazon’s Alexa, voice control and home automation became that much more simple.

"On average, our customers have over 40 connected devices in their homes that are orchestrated by Control4 and now, voice interaction with Amazon Alexa offers another convenient way to control all of them,” said Martin Plaehn, Control4 CEO. “This integration combines Control4’s automation power and extensive support for connected devices with the intuitive voice control from Amazon Alexa, reinforcing our shared vision to make life in a connected home ever-more personalized, comfortable, and hassle-free.”

Control4 provides users with the power to control one light at a time or create as many lighting pre-sets as needed. Dinner parties can have ambient lighting and a classical playlist, whereas movie night might be dark with the surround sound system calibrated so you feel the explosions of your favorite action movie. Instead of having to go to your device for these settings, you can now simply say “Alexa, execute Dinner Party setting” or "Alexa, execute turn off bedroom light".

Alexa doesn’t simply adjust the lighting or temperature. Control4 integrates with all Alexa products, including Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV. This means Alexa can turn on your TV and find your favorite song along with all the other services that Control4 offers. Now you’ll never have to remind your kids to turn the TV off when they leave the room. Simply ask Alexa to do it.
