We worked with Carrier to develop an Alexa skill that lets customers control their home's temperature and fan settings using simple voice commands.
How it Works
When instructed, an Alexa-enabled smart speaker communicates with Carrier’s system and adjusts the environment in specific areas of the house. Users can set zones and assign names to specific rooms of their home via the MyInfinity companion app or an online customer portal.
Controlling the temperature via Alexa activates a Manual Touch ’n Go™ activity hold with heat and cool setpoints to attain the requested temperature for the current mode (Heat, Cool or Auto). The manual activity hold is scheduled until the start of the next program period.
"Alexa, set the living room to 68 degrees."
"Alexa, lower the upstairs temperature by 4 degrees."
"Alexa, heat the kitchen 2 degrees."
"Alexa, set the living room fan to 50%"
"Alexa, turn on away at home"
"Alexa, turn on sleep upstairs"
“When we originally launched Infinity, there was no concept of Alexa. As opportunities to expand their product reach have presented themselves, we’ve helped Carrier stay relevant and transition to new platforms.
