Daikin adds voice control feature

There is a new version of the Daikin Residential Controller app, that contains a voice control feature.

Users can now control their heating and cooling systems hands-free, which means less clicks in the app, less time needed to control systems, but with the same result: all units can be managed while away or from a distance.

With the voice control feature, Daikin gears up to answer the needs of modern society and its customers. Users are constantly looking for more comfort and ease while still expecting a fast service. Even more, people live their lives on the go and want to be able to manage things on their smartphone. The voice control feature is cross-functional and multilingual and fits these needs perfectly.

How does it work?

Thanks to the Daikin Residential Controller app, users can manage their heating and cooling systems from their smartphone. Now it has a voice control feature, the app now also includes 3rd party integrations with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The app includes intuitive functions such as a scheduling program to schedule temperature and operation mode, a tailor-made control function to control all heating and/or cooling units and a monitoring feature to have a clear overview of performance and energy consumption.

The app is linked with Daikin’s after-sales service Stand By Me. It has the aim of providing peace of mind comfort to the end user when it comes to after-sales services. Daikin’s connectivity platform supports professional installers, end users and organizations such as social housing providers. The platform allows for an easy administration of multiple connected installations as well as cloud-based direct access to remote metering and monitoring.

Patrick Crombez, General Manager Heating and Renewables at Daikin Europe, said: “Daikin proves again that we are part of your connected home. Thanks to the voice control feature of the Daikin Residential Controller app, we confirm again our promise to offer great design and user experience. It is easy, user-friendly, and fast. The app is part of the end-to-end solution we want to offer our customers: heating, cooling, ventilation, energy optimization and controls.”
