iDevices Announces Amazon Alexa Compatibility With Their Smart Home Product Line
- iDevices products are now compatible with Amazon Alexa devices
- Expands on company's integration with Apple HomeKit, Siri
- Three-step setup process still requires an iOS device and iDevices Connected app
iDevices, the preeminent brand in the smart home industry, announces the compatibility of its connected home products and app with Amazon Alexa. This includes integration with Alexa-enabled accessories such as the Amazon Echo, Dot and Tap. iDevices has gained home automation market leadership with its launch of the first Apple HomeKit-enabled smart plug and development of the iDevices Connected app, one of the few apps that allows for the control of all HomeKit products with no additional hub or subscription fees required. With the largest HomeKit product lineup requiring no hub, it was a natural next step to expand this foundation to include compatibility with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. Additionally, all products connected to the iDevices Connected app use the company’s IoT Cloud Infrastructure at no extra cost, allowing control of these products through a secure platform when users are away from home.
“When we launched our first HomeKit product, we designed our unique software architecture to allow us to expand compatibility to new devices and platforms as the smart home ecosystem evolved,” says Chris Allen, iDevices CEO. “Now, we want to show people that the smart home is not a thing of the future; it’s here today. Most of all, we want to make it simple to adopt by connecting all of our users’ smart products, whether they are HomeKit- or Alexa-enabled.”
