Control your Gira eNet SMART HOME intuitively by voice command. All you need is a voice assistant: either Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.
With eNet SMART HOME you’re the master of your home’s practical functions. Even with simple voice control: tell your smart home straight off what you want it to do.
This means you’re far more flexible, saving you precious time and energy without having to always rely on the eNet SMART HOME App or the Gira G1. Imagine slowly waking one morning, when it’s still dark. Instead of reaching for your smartphone to turn on the light, you simply say, “Alexa, good morning.” A pre-set scene flickers to life: comfortable, dimmed light fills the room, your blinds roll up and the radio switches on. A new day begins, controlled by your voice.
To prepare your eNet SMART HOME for voice control, you need one of the two voice assistants: either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. After installing the eNet SMART HOME skill for the voice assistant of your choice and connecting it with your My eNet user account, you’re ready to go. From now on, you can control connected devices in your smart home. Very practical.
You can think of eNet SMART HOME as a helpful assistant for your house, taking care of smaller tasks so you can focus on what’s important.
Imagine that it’s the weekend and you’ve invited your friends over for dinner. Obviously, your guests are your main concern. However, it’s up to your smart home to provide the atmosphere. All you’ve got to say is, “Alexa, start with Dinner Ambience.” Your smart home knows what you mean, because you’ve already pre-programmed this command. Gentle background music starts playing, and lights dim to an ambient level.
All good things come to an end, and this evening is no different. Since you’ve got to clean up, you want a little motivation from your smart home. You say, “Alexa, play the Clean Up Music.” Fitting tunes fill the air once more. Once everything is spick and span, you collapse into bed, exhausted. As your last task of the day, you simply say, “Alexa, start the Relaxation Routine.” This brings your Philips Hue lights down to a comfortable level of brightness. From your Sonos music system, your favourite Spotify Playlist starts.
Before you drift off, your give your smartphone one final instruction. “Alexa,” you say, “turn off everything in the bedroom after 20 minutes.” As subtle music plays amidst dimmed lighting, you drift off in peace knowing your eNet SMART HOME is doing the rest.
Voice control means added accessibility for your home. For those with physical impairments, this is paramount. Some devices may be difficult to physically access, especially if they’re in another room or on a different floor. Maybe you left the upstairs light on: then, you simply tell your smart home to turn them off. Connected devices become a breeze to control intuitively, when steered with just your voice. Simply tell your smart home what you want and it takes over the desired setting.
Additionally, each new function that Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant learn makes your Gira eNet SMART HOME that little bit smarter.
