Owning a Smart Home opens up a lot of possibilities: control your lighting via app, regulate your heating while on the go, or play your favourite music via voice command. To make your life even more comfortable and efficient, Gira offers a broad range of smart devices and solutions. The “Internet of Things” (IoT) allows you to even integrate products from other manufacturers. Lighting systems, washing machines, garden irrigation, vacuum robots: your networking options are virtually unlimited. Now, your individual devices can communicate with one another and coordinate household tasks automatically.
In Gira Smart Homes, you can determine when your blinds go up (or come down) and when your lights will be switched on. Simply use a Gira touch screen device or the Gira app on your smartphone or tablet. The Internet of Things also works via voice command once it is linked to Amazon Alexa.
You don’t even have to flick a switch or reach for your smartphone to control Gira KNX products. Instead, you can just tell the Amazon Alexa voice assistant what to do: “Alexa, turn on the living room light!” Your Smart Home will take care of the rest.
Maybe you would like to combine Gira products with devices from other manufacturers, but you‘re not sure if you have enough technical skills? No need to worry: many products from the “Internet of Things” range come with an [IFTTT connection](https://www.gira.com/en/en/inspirations/solutions/ifttt-smart-home). This enables your smart applications to receive commands from the cloud.
