Fibaro Adds Voice Control with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri

Fibaro, a leading global manufacturer of wireless intelligent home automation and control devices, is pleased to announce its vast ecosystem of smart home products now integrate with leading voice control platforms – Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and most recently the Google Assistant.

Fibaro is one of few premium smart home hub and device manufacturers to offer homeowners their choice of voice control platform in the home to control lights, blinds, security cameras, sensors, as well as many customized scenes with a simple voice command.

All three assistants allow for verbal interaction with Fibaro’s devices, and select products connected to Fibaro Home Center hubs. Users can give voice commands that turn the lights on and off, adjust a room’s temperature, check which doors and windows are currently open, or instruct the Fibaro system to simultaneously perform several similar tasks by giving a pre-defined verbal command.

Fibaro customers that use iPhone X to control their Fibaro smart home system can also disarm their Fibaro alarm system using Face ID, Apple’s face recognition feature.

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice integration is available in English immediately using software version 4.130 or higher. Fibaro will continue to expand the number of voice commands available for each platform in 2018.

Also new in 2018, the Fibaro system is compatible with devices from leading AV brands including Bose, Sonos, Yamaha, Russound, iEast, Bang&Oulfsen, Musaic, Cocktail Audio, Pioneer, Onkyo, Denon and Nuvo, among others.

When integrated with the Fibaro system, the compatible multimedia devices can be programmed to automatically lower music volume after a certain time, to turn itself on along with other connected devices when watching TV, or to play lullabies in a child’s room at bed time.

Fibaro’s voice integration and smart-home device integration with the Fibaro system and its many IoT partners are on demo at CES 2018 in the Sands Smart Home Marketplace booth # 40952
