Amazon Alexa And Multi-Speakers Make Whole-House Audio System Control A Dream Come True
Amazon, the smart home tech giant, is expected to maintain a dominant 70-percent market share of the U.S. smart speaker market into 2021. Most smart home devices have enabled the integration with Amazon’s Alexa which backs the fact that it is one of the most preferred devices. Controlling devices with the use of voice has become one of the hottest things that a smart home can perform. With the option of multi-room speakers, Alexa can control music from one single place to all the rooms. Using the Alexa app, you will be able to create Alexa routines that can trigger a set of pre-defined actions which are set on the app. You will be able to configure this on your Alexa app in the Routines section.
Triggering Alexa routines from smart home hubs can be a challenge. There are a few workarounds to this. The best options are using mkZense or Hubitat Elevation Hub as an intermediary. With mkZense, you will be able to configure an IFTTT service that will be linked to the routine you created allowing you to control the routine directly from your hub. There are a few limitations whilst using the Alexa routines, but this is an improvement.
With Alexa smart speakers already being deployed as voice control points around so many homes, their low cost and improved audio quality now make them a viable whole-house audio system option.
