Available to the public in April, these commands will allow users to turn connected ceiling fans on and off, change speeds and adjust light intensity, all hands-free. They will work with all Alexa-enabled devices, including Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Tap.
Haiku ceiling fans feature built-in temperature, humidity and occupancy sensors for automatic speed adjustment as environmental conditions shift. The forthcoming Alexa voice commands allow for easier manual overrides when a setting change is desired, like increasing fan speed after a run or dimming the light to watch TV (without getting off the couch).
Voice control through Amazon Alexa is the latest example of Big Ass Fans’ continued industry leadership. The company introduced Haiku with SenseME®, the world’s first connected ceiling fan, in 2014, and continues to develop partner integrations and release new features, including specialized modes to help homeowners save energy year-round.
The new Alexa commands work with all WiFi-enabled Haiku ceiling fans.
