URC launches Amazon Alexa Smart Home Skill
Home automation provider URC recently announced the release of the Amazon Alexa Smart Home Skill that is compatible with URC’s smart home system in the U.S. market.

This development enables a wide range of control possibilities with Alexa-enabled devices such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Fire TV. The skill is designed to fully integrate Alexa-enabled devices with URC’s smart home system Total Control.

The integration allows homeowners to use basic voice commands to execute a set of programmed instructions – a revolutionary change in the way Total Control users can enjoy their smart home system, URC says.

“For over 25 years, URC has provided leading-edge control solutions to our customers,” said Doug Cole, URC SVP and General Manager. “Today we join an elite group of smart home innovators with the introduction of intelligent voice control for Total Control, our premium, custom whole-house automation and control system. With best-in-class touchscreens, handheld remotes, mobile apps, keypads and now Amazon Alexa intelligent voice control, our customers will truly live the connected lives they aspire to,” said Cole.

This popular new integration is designed to elevate the Total Control experience for new and existing voice control technology users. Homeowners can select TV programs, activate music systems, raise and lower shades, adjust thermostats – and even turn on or off their whole home with intuitive voice commands. Virtually any Total Control instructions can be controlled via voice with the URC Amazon Alexa integration.

This integration works by using Alexa Smart Home Skills. The URC Alexa Integration Guide explains how to incorporate Amazon Alexa voice control into a Total Control installation. Alexa integration must be completed by a certified URC Total Control systems integrator.
