Use-case #1: Control KNX and Philips Hue lights together. Make your home a more exciting place to live in.

February 4, 2019

 

Imagine having a hard-wired KNX smart home with the intelligent network for home automation that connects lights, blinds, alarm system, motion detectors and more. And now you’d like to adapt a room in your existing configuration because you just extended your family for one tiny new member. You want to add a new bedside lamp for your newly born daughter's bedroom. Possibly without undertaking any expensive or intrusive renovation work and adding another KNX lighting unit by drilling. 

 

You lean towards Philips Hue Color bulbs because it can change their color to your, and your daughter’s liking. She especially liked Philips Hue LightStrips which can turn her room any color of the rainbow and looks great! If you want to control the LightStrip, you have to do so from the Philips Hue app, separate from all your other lights in your home. Too much hassle?

 

Don’t worry, we've got you covered! 

 

A quick and easy solution is to install Philips Hue LightStrip (or any other Hue Product) into your daughter’s bedroom and control it seamlessly with the Philips Hue mobile app.

 

Still want to turn off all lights at the same time? 

Voxior is the bridge that bundles all your smart lights (KNX or other), and puts them in the palm of your hand, or should we say, at the tip of your tongue. We enable you to have the best of both worlds (KNX and IoT) talking to each other and executing commands as if they were made by a single manufacturer. All that with your voice, the most natural interface there is.
It’s a triumphant feeling. 🏆

Make great lighting system the highlight of your day. Every day.
