URC has released Amazon Alexa Smart Home Skill integration for URC MX HomePro in the U.S. market. This integration enables a wide range of control possibilities with Alexa-enabled devices such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Fire TV.
The skill is designed to fully integrate Alexa-enabled devices with MX HomePro, allowing homeowners to utilize basic voice commands to execute programmed macros.
This new integration is designed to elevate the smart home control experience for new and existing voice control technology users. With intuitive commands, homeowners can control a wide variety of compatible smart home devices for entertainment, lighting, locks, and Z-Wave, all in one system. Virtually any MX HomePro macro can be controlled via intelligent voice control with the URC Amazon Alexa integration.
This integration works by using Alexa Smart Home Skills. The URC MX HomePro Alexa Integration Guide, available on the URC Control Room dealer-only site and on the MX HomePro Editor software, explains how to incorporate Amazon Alexa control into an MX HomePro installation.
