Mitsubishi Electric Australia has added innovative voice control technology to its air conditioning units.
All Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning units installed with Wi-Fi Control has hands-free operation thanks to newly added compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
This innovative technology gives consumers the freedom to control their unit through voice control via their smart home hub.
As Australian homes evolve to a hands-free way of living, this innovation from Mitsubishi Electric answers consumer demand for ultimate home comfort.
Just as playing music or checking the news is as simple as speaking to your smart speaker, so is controlling the air temperature.
The new connectivity feature is simple to activate across both Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
Consumers only need to link their smart speaker account to a Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control account. Once the two apps are ‘introduced’, Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control is discoverable alongside any other smart home device within the smart speaker’s app.
The company's national product manager, Atesh Mani, said the new voice control feature was developed in response to consumer demand and is a milestone in Mitsubishi Electric's commitment to pioneer a better tomorrow.
“We listened to our customers who wanted to integrate heating and cooling into their Smart Home. The addition of Amazon Alexa and Google Home compatibility to Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control provides our customers with a Smart Air Conditioning solution,” Mani said.
“Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control already provides great convenience. The ability to use a device to turn your air conditioner off remotely that is left on accidentally or the ability to precool or preheat your home before you get there can save energy by preventing excessive use.
“Now your air conditioner can be controlled along with other smart devices such as lights and power outlets.”
The new voice control feature is available in Mitsubishi Electric split systems, ducted and the commercial City Multi air conditioning units installed with a Wi-Fi adapter.
