Lost remote, tired of constant trips to switches and buttons to adjust the ceiling fan!!
Are you tired of constantly looking for your lost ceiling fan remote? Is it a hassle to keep on standing up just to switch the buttons and adjust your ceiling fan? If so, don’t fret because Alexa voice control is here to help. You can also visit their ceiling fans showroom to more know about the products.
With this, you can now control lights, A/C units, doors, fireplaces, and ceiling fans handsfree. Yes, hands-free, without using the remote. All you need is your natural language to offer voice commands that turn your ceiling fans on and off, adjust the speed and intensity, and control the dimming and brightness of the lights.
Alexa Voice Control for the Old Ceiling Fan Models
If you own old fans that lack the voice control features, don’t rush to dispose of them yet. You can still turn the old fans into smart fans with voice control capabilities.
Tech wizards use a particle photon microcontroller and an RF Transmitter to enable a voice command on a ceiling fan. The two devices help the ceiling fan to connect to any Alexa-enabled device and allow Alexa to send voice commands to control the fan. However, not all fans can be automated and you need to first confirm with an expert. If your fans cannot be compatible with additional features, then you will have to get new smart ceiling fans that can connect to a voice command device.
Alexa Voice Control for New Ceiling Fan Models
Many new models come with voice command features. You only need to specify from your supplier that you need a voice command enabled fan and get an Alexa-enabled device such as an Amazon echo or google assistant. With this, you no longer need your remote control that gets lost when it is needed.
How to Use Alexa Voice Commands?
Once you install your smart ceiling fan and buy your Alexa-enabled device, you need to customize your voice commands that are easy to remember. Alexa-enabled devices have corresponding apps that allow you to customize your voice commands.
The apps help you to allocate specific names to your different ceiling fans. For example, you can name the ceiling fan in your bedroom as, ‘bedroom fan’. The apps also allow you to specify specific phrases to control the ceiling fans. For example, to turn the bedroom ceiling fan on, you can allocate the phrase, ‘Alexa, turn bedroom fan on’.
You need to also find phrases to adjust the speed of the fans and the intensity of the fanlights. Just remember to use phrases and names that are easy to remember to avoid confusing Alexa with phrases that end up setting your house on fire! Noting down the names and commands will also help especially if you have a guest over or in case you forgot a command.
Once you get your voice control commands right, you can go ahead and enjoy your new smart ceiling fans and forget about the constant trips to adjust the fan on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Alexa voice control is making homes better by automating devices and electronics and offering users a chance to control their whole house with the natural voice.
