Are Motorised Blinds Compatible with Alexa ?

As the world around us develops, more and more things become electrical. One being motorised blinds.  

Another commonly used piece of new technology would be Alexa. Sound familiar? Amazon Alexa is what we like to call a ‘virtual assistant’ – making those daily tasks just that little bit easier by using artificial intelligence. Alexa uses smart technology to be able to play music, update you on the weather and answer all your fundamental questions, followed by a number of other things you probably would not have even considered. 

As the years go on, Amazon has broadened their range of compatible devices so that Alexa can help you with the security of your home, the powering of your lights and even go as far as assisting with making you a brew in the morning by connecting to your espresso machine through a smart plug. 

Going back to the question. Are motorised blinds compatible with Alexa? Can Amazon Alexa do the work for you making it even easier than the simple click of the button?

To simplify the answer; yes, motorised blinds can be made compatible with Alexa – with the help of a hub that connects to your internet router. The type of hub you require depends on the type of motorised blind you go for. 

Once a hub is connected to your internet router, you can then make your motorised blinds compatible with your Alexa device.
