Eaton recently announced the latest series of intelligent power innovations for home builders, residential contractors and homeowners to simplify installation and adoption of home automation solutions. Eaton’s new portfolio of Wi-Fi smart devices, including dimmers, switches and receptacles, can seamlessly connect to Amazon Alexa upon setup without the need for a third-party hub. From scheduling a morning routine to dimming the lights at night, Eaton’s Wi-Fi smart devices offer remote and voice-command capabilities for homeowners using the Amazon Alexa app and Alexa-enabled devices, such as Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Show smart speakers.
Eaton developed the Wi-Fi smart dimmers, switches and receptacles with Amazon’s Alexa Connect Kit (ACK) to integrate with Alexa and provide Frustration-Free Setup and reliability with no additional hubs required. Once installed in the home, users can simply open the Amazon Alexa app to find and set up Eaton’s Wi-Fi smart devices. Once connected, homeowners can use voice-commands to control lighting and motor loads for equipment like fans, pool pumps and home appliances. They can also remotely control devices, create routines and schedules, and group devices together using the Amazon Alexa app.
By working with Amazon for compatibility with Alexa, Eaton continues its strategic approach of collaborating and directly integrating with industry-leading home automation control platforms and service providers. This builds on existing industry relationships, such as Eaton’s integration with smart home security provider Alarm.com. These partnerships allow Eaton to support several home automation solutions, including Wi-Fi and Z-Wave Plus devices, to meet the varying needs and preferences of home builders, contractors, professional remodelers, and homeowners.
