If you have the updated Airzone Cloud App (iOS or Android) and an Airzone Cloud webserver from 2016 onwards (except old C3 range) you can control your system using voice commands.

Airzone is on the IoT frontier

The IoT (Internet of Things) is no longer a matter of time nor choice. It is already part of our lives, and we spend less and less time disconnected from the internet.

Virtual assistants are the greatest example of this long expected integration.

Thanks to these we can remotely control electronic devices connected to the internet and even using voice commands.

Your comfort is our comfort

At Airzone we are committed to the satisfaction of our customers.

Through voice commands you will be able to use functionalities such as:
• Turn your system on and off
• Activate or deactivate zones independently
• Raising and lowering zone temperatures
• Setting up the system in different modes

We are convinced that the integration of our systems with virtual assistants will increase the comfort provided by our products.

For example: If you name your family room as “Living room” and the air-conditioning is off, then all you have to say in order to warm that zone up is:

“Alexa, turn on the living room”

Then:

“Alexa, warm up the living room”

Yes, it is that simple. Now, go try it out!

NOTE: Alexa might deliver 0,5 degrees more than the one requested. This is a familiar bug about which we have already notified the Amazon team. .
