Benefits of Alexa Controlled Blinds
Using voice commands to control the opening and closing of your motorised blinds allows you to keep your hands free for doing something else at the same time. You don’t even need to pick up a handset, mobile device or find a wall switch. Electric blinds controlled by Alexa are simple to use and hassle free.
Simple Set Up
Alexa controlled blinds are simple to install in your home. Using a special link device, the motorised blinds can be connected to your Alexa enabled device with minimal setup. All you will need is the relevant app installed on a smart device and an Alexa device linked to your Amazon account.
If you want to open or close groups of blinds together, or at preset times of the day, we can help you to create ‘scenes’ that you can then control via your Alexa enabled device. For example, you might say ‘Alexa, close all of the blinds in the bedrooms,’ or ‘Alexa, open the downstairs blinds at 7am.’
