Vimar introduces the built-in Alexa voice control that revolutionizes the concept of home automation and smart homes, making the use of technology simple and accessible to everyone, from children to the elderly.

Developed using Alexa technology, the built-in device expands the classic concept of tactile control, allowing the operation of lights, the movement of curtains and blinds, climate control, activation of scenarios, listening to favorite music, and control of other Alexa-compatible devices, such as Vimar’s new smart multi-outlet extensions, all through the most natural language in the world: the voice.

Integrated Voice Command in the Electrical System

Unique in the market for being aesthetically coordinated with the three main civil series – Eikon, Arké, and Plana (for Idea with a 3-module adapter) – the voice command integrates into the digital infrastructure of the building, adapting to any interior design context, and is available in four colors: White, Anthracite Grey, Next, and Metal. So elegant in its lines and shape that it won the prestigious Iconic Award 2021.

Equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity, this device features an elegant design and reduced protrusion, making it ideal for both smart View Wireless systems – thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 mesh connectivity – and wired By-me Plus home automation systems. The new built-in voice command is equipped with two programmable electronic microswitch buttons with adjustable intensity RGB backlighting for identification in the dark, and a relay with zero crossing technology for controlling a light. Buttons and relay can be freely used as resources to configure in their respective systems. A rear wired input finally allows the control of the relay or the calling of a scenario via a traditional button, which can also be installed in another location/control point. The equipment is completed by 4 central keys dedicated to standard voice assistant functions (volume +/-, microphone, and action). A circular guide with Alexa animation visually indicates the reception of the command.

Programming is intuitive via View Pro and View Wireless apps. To make the building even smarter, the relay on board the device can be controlled via smartphone and tablet through the View app, Google Home, Apple HomeKit.
