Truly impressive: Making coffee with Alexa
"Alexa, tell My Coffee Machine to prepare a strong cappuccino and start now." You can use this and many other commands to easily control your Home Connect coffee machines. Which means that you have your hands free to do other things.
Hot and simple: Cooking and baking with Alexa
Connect Alexa to your oven and cooker hood, control it with your voice and call up its status at any time. Have your hands free for pots and pans, and still be able to control your hood to keep the air in your kitchen fresh and clean with just your voice.
And, when you’ve already sat down for dinner, you can say “Alexa, ask My Hood to turn on the ambient light” to set the right atmosphere. You always have everything under control and save any unnecessary trips.
Pristine results: Washing and drying with Alexa
Your Home Connect washer can also be connected to Amazon Echo. Start special wash programs using a voice command or ask Alexa for the current status, e.g. "Alexa, ask Home Connect washer when the laundry will be done." Or you can interrupt the wash cycle using a voice command in order to add more laundry.
Your dryer can also easily be controlled via Amazon Alexa. For example, say "Alexa, start the Home Connect dryer" and you will be asked which program you would like to use.
Dust-free: Intelligent cleanliness with Roxxter and Alexa
Just have your apartment dust- and lint-free with a voice command? No problem with the new Roxxter and Alexa. Simply start your new intelligent vacuum cleaner with the words: "Alexa, tell Roxxter to clean your home" and the Roxxter will start vacuuming the rooms of your home thanks to its virtual map. But what if the children's Lego bricks are still distributed on the children's room floor? No problem either - the Roxxter is simply guided past certain areas by so-called no-go zones.
Connect the Roxxter to other smart devices in your home via IFTTT. You can view the Roxxter's cleaning status via your Philips Hue lamp, synchronize your cleaning schedule in the Google calendar, start the Roxxter automatically as soon as you leave your home and much more.
What is Amazon Alexa?
Amazon Alexa is a voice service from Amazon with which you can not only call up information, but also control numerous appliances (such as Home Connect appliances) using your voice. Amazon Alexa is based on skills which make voice interaction with products and services more intuitive. The Amazon Echo and the smaller Echo Dot loudspeakers are available for controlling Amazon Alexa. The main difference between the two devices is the loudspeaker, with the larger Amazon Echo having a better sound quality.
