Stack has announced two new integrations to further streamline lighting controls and sensor triggers for a more seamless user experience: Amazon Alexa and the brand new IFTTT partner platform. These integrations will further enable users to customize not only their lighting experience, but to utilize Stacks embedded sensors to inform and personalize the entire smart home or office.
Integration with Alexa allows users to use an Amazon Echo, or any Alexa-enabled device, to control their lights with simple, intuitive voice commands. Users can utilize rooms defined in the Stack app, or create new groups in the Alexa app to control every Stack bulb throughout their home. Users can now use their voice to easily adjust their lights to set the mood – no more reaching for your phone when its movie time.
Stack is also announcing new functionality with their existing integration partner, IFTTT. As part of the new IFTTT partner platform, Stack now has a native integration with IFTTT, so users can enable recipes with a simple tap from within the Stack Lighting app. For example, users can now use the Stack Lighting app to trigger their connected blinds to lower when Stack senses that its very bright in a room.
