London, 14 September 2016 – Netatmo, a revolutionary smart home company developing
groundbreaking, intuitive and beautifully-designed connected consumer electronics,
announces today the compatibility of its Smart Thermostat with Amazon Alexa.
After its huge success in the US, Alexa today launches in the UK and Germany alongside
Amazon’s voice-controlled speaker, Amazon Echo, and is available for innovative
companies to integrate. Alexa offers its users the ultimate smart home experience.
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker that can be controlled by the voice. Amazon Echo
connects to the Alexa voice service, the brain behind Echo, to change the house
temperature, play music, provide information and more – instantly. Users just need to say
the word “Alexa” and Echo responds immediately.
"Alexa, increase the Home temperature by 2°C"
Netatmo's Smart Thermostat allows users to save 37% of energy to heat their home1. It sets
a program to reflect the users’ habits. It also allows users to control their heating remotely
from a smartphone. Netatmo's Smart Thermostat is designed by Philippe Starck.
With Amazon Echo, users can simply ask Alexa to change the temperature of the house
("Alexa, set my Home Thermostat to 20°C",) or to increase and decrease the temperature
("Alexa, increase the Home temperature by 2°C").
“With Amazon Echo and Alexa, our customers can voice-control their heating and improve
their comfort at home without lifting a finger,” said Fred Potter, Founder and CEO of
Netatmo. “Integrating Amazon Alexa demonstrates our ability to provide our customers with
the most advanced technologies—not only are we enabling customers to save 37% of energy
to heat their home and control their heating remotely, they can do so using only their voice.
We’re very excited to be part of the launch of Alexa in the UK.”
