iDevices Announces Amazon Alexa Compatibility With Their Smart Home Product Line – Jul 12, 2016– California, USA (Techreleased) – iDevices®, the preeminent brand in the smart home industry, announces the compatibility of its connected home products and app with Amazon Alexa.
This includes integration with Alexa-enabled accessories such as the Amazon Echo, Dot and Tap. iDevices has gained home automation market leadership with its launch of the first Apple HomeKit™-enabled smart plug and development of the iDevices Connected app, one of the few apps that allows for the control of all HomeKit products with no additional hub or subscription fees required. With the largest HomeKit product lineup requiring no hub, it was a natural next step to expand this foundation to include compatibility with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. Additionally, all products connected to the iDevices Connected app use the company’s IoT Cloud Infrastructure at no extra cost, allowing control of these products through a secure platform when users are away from home.
“When we launched our first HomeKit product, we designed our unique software architecture to allow us to expand compatibility to new devices and platforms as the smart home ecosystem evolved,” says Chris Allen, iDevices CEO. “Now, we want to show people that the smart home is not a thing of the future; it’s here today. Most of all, we want to make it simple to adopt by connecting all of our users’ smart products, whether they are HomeKit- or Alexa-enabled.”
The highly acclaimed iDevices Connected app is the leading HomeKit aggregator app on the market today, because of its advanced ability to control not only iDevices products, but also any HomeKit-enabled product from any other manufacturer. It is also the only app to offer advanced features including energy reporting, on-board scheduling and IoT remote access without an Apple TV. With a team of in-house software developers and engineers, iDevices is in a unique position to adapt to the evolving home automation space. iDevices products are evergreen and able to add new features via simple over-the-air app updates.
Amazon Echo users only need an iOS device for setup and are ready to go in three simple steps. First, users sign in to their Amazon account to automatically link their products. Second, they add the iDevices Connected skill to Alexa through the Alexa app. Finally, they can now use voice-commands with Alexa-enabled devices to control their connected home.
