The convenience of Somfy-motorised window coverings just got even simpler with IFTTT compatibility.
Now you can control your window coverings with voice commands or set automatic actions through the IFTTT app.
Read on to discover the opportunities of Somfy and IFTTT.
The exciting addition of IFTTT means you can now control your Somfy RTS products with your voice. Using your Connexoon Window RTS device, and your voice-controlled assistant, you can operate your window coverings and Phillips HUE lights with simple voice commands.
Talking to either your Google Home or Amazon Echo device, you can use simple commands such as "Alexa, trigger good morning", "Ok Google, good night", "Alexa, trigger I'm home" or even "Ok Google, launch movie scenario" to trigger actions for your Somfy-motorised window coverings.
Some actions you can create are:
- Say "Alexa, trigger good morning" to turn off the outdoor lights, raise the blinds in the bedroom but lower the blinds in the bathroom to maintain privacy.
- Say "Ok Google, I'm going on vacation" to turn on certain lights and set schedules on window coverings to mimic activity and increase security.
