DAYTON, N.J., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Somfy Systems, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of tubular motors for interior and exterior window coverings, introduces voice control of motorized window coverings. Now that the myLink™ is Alexa-enabled you can easily control your connected products with voice commands. Raise or lower your shades, exterior screens, or rolling shutters, open or close your blinds or draperies, and extend or retract your awnings anytime with simple, natural phrases.
"Enjoy the wow factor of watching your home spring into motion with a simple voice command," said Alex Keichinger, Somfy North America Home and Building Product Manager. "Now Alexa users can enjoy the convenience, privacy, and energy saving benefits of motorized window coverings."
Somfy's new Amazon Alexa skill allows for voice control of all Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) motorized products controlled by the myLink app, as well as scenes and schedules. A wide range of natural language commands makes controlling your motorized products intuitive. For example, open your living room shades by saying, "Alexa, tell myLink to raise living room shades."
Scenes and schedules set up in your myLink app are also easy to control with natural, easy-to-recall phrases. If you create a morning scene simply say, "Alexa, tell myLink to play Good Morning scene," and your shades will let in the morning sun. Or say, "Alexa, ask myLink to enable Goodnight schedule," and enjoy worry-free automation.
In addition, Somfy has enhanced the myLink hub with firmware updates, a sleek new design, and improved performance. The Amazon Alexa skill will work with both current and legacy myLink hardware.
"Somfy's compatibility with Amazon Alexa shows our commitment to innovation and means controlling your motorized products just became even easier," said Keichinger.
