FIBARO had introduced its own voice assistant to its system before the era of the popular voice assistants had even begun. A strong trend of the Polish manufacturer towards Google Assistant was always the clue to meet users expectations who want to have a single and coherent communication system. Currently, both manufacturers in addition to voice control provide mobile apps that enable extensive smart home management.
Smart home control commands can be spoken in Polish with just one sentence. There is no need to indicate the system that controls the device. Lets have a look on a very simple example of turning on the light. Just ask the assistant: Hey Google, turn on all the lights/set the lights at 40%/set the bedroom lights color to red/ open the gate/open the blinds/control the Nice gate etc. — Commans are now extremely simple. There is no need to call the path within a request: “Hey Google, talk to FIBARO…”
We had always believe that only through full integration with leading voice assistant, FIBARO will be appreciated around the world and its features will provide unique trends across the entire IoT industry. This important step forward is a showcase of proper development and popularization of smart home solutions in Poland — the country from which FIBARO originates. — said Adam Krużyński, CEO.
Our RnD team works on a daily basis with major global voice assistant providers such as Amazon Alexa or Apple Siri to ensure that our home automation always gives top notch features that can improve users lives. Enabling Polish language in Google Assistant in Polish is a big step towards making voice commands more popular in Poland. — adds Krzysztof Banasiak, CTO at FIBARO.
Smart home automation developed by FIBARO can be controlled with dedicated FIBARO Home Center app (available on iOS and Android), using gestures, triggering devices (such as like The Button, KeyFob) and with voice by using one of Google Assistant supported languages: Polish, English, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese. SImply integrate your device with FIBARO Home Center 3, Home Center 3 Lite, Home Center 2 and Home Center Lite to enable voice control of your entire smart home. FIBARO smart home management with the Google Assistant works on mobile devices.
