Recently, a French company, Netatmo has announced that it is going to add one more way to control smart objects in your house. Using a chatbot in messenger, users can now talk and control all their connected devices. Currently, the feature is available in English and more languages coming later this year.
The idea of Smart Home Bot has evolved from Netatmo’s new “with Netatmo” program. Currently, Netatmo devices are compatible with various virtual assistants including Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. At CES, Netatmo is now unveiling few of the newest “with Netatmo” devices including smart lights, blinds, and radiators those are yet to debut in 2018.
Netatmo’s own products or any of the “with Netatmo” devices can be controlled through the Smart Home Bot via Messenger. It is using artificial intelligence algorithms and natural language processing to decipher text commands sent by users to different smart home devices.
Users can just type queries, such as “turn on the lights in the living room” or “adjust the temperature in the bedroom to 72 degree”. But, Netatmo has designed the chatbot to handle more complex queries, such as “who’s at home right now” and “what’s the weather like right now”.
The company is all set to come up with connected radiators with Groupe Muller, Intuiv with Netatmo. This device is a smart heating device that automatically adjusts the temperature based on user habits. Netatmo has developed a connected module compatible with many different Groupe Muller radiators.
