Makes home personalization easy with voice control
SUWANEE, Georgia – November 14, 2018 – (METUS), a leading supplier of Zoned Comfort Solutions® and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heating and cooling systems, announces kumo cloud® app integration with Amazon Alexa.
kumo cloud mobile app and web service put enhanced control of heating and cooling at users’ fingertips, no matter where they are. The integration with Alexa allows homeowners to enable and control their Mitsubishi Electric system simply by asking Alexa. To begin, homeowners must download the Alexa app and enable the kumo cloud smart home skill within the app. Once linked to the homeowner’s account, the app allows users to turn their system on/off, change set points or modes for an individual zone or entire group, as well as request zone status, including the humidity or current temperature simply by asking Alexa or using the app.
Once the skill is enabled, homeowners can use voice prompts such as, “Alexa, what is the temperature in the bedroom,” to check the room’s current temperature. Customers also have the option to rename zones to “kitchen,” or “girl’s room,” for added customization.
“We are excited to announce kumo cloud app integration with Alexa,” says Charles Miltiades, director of controls products & solutions for Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “The integration maximizes smart home technology to help homeowners easily control room temperatures for optimal comfort.”
kumo cloud mobile app and web service provides an easy way to optimize home comfort levels – such as turning off heating and cooling systems in unused rooms or setting individual temperature preferences in each family member’s room. The app provides remote access to the heating and cooling system in three easy steps – plug in, setup and download app. It has the capability to control various functions of Mitsubishi Electric systems, including heating and cooling schedules, system alerts, fan speed, vane direction and more.
The kumo cloud app is compatible with the latest generation of Mitsubishi Electric residential HVAC systems. The additional components necessary include a Mitsubishi Electric Wireless Interface – one for each indoor unit – in addition to a router and an internet connection for initial setup. No kumo cloud app updates are needed to use the app with Amazon Alexa.
