iRobot’s Roomba now works with Google Home, Amazon Alexa & IFTTT
In an effort to further integrate the smart home, iRobot’s Roomba Wi-Fi connected robot vacuums are now compatible with Google Home, Amazon Alexa and IFTTT (If This Then That).
IFTTT is a free web-based platform that helps users to do more with their apps and devices. The iRobot IFTTT Applets enable Roomba customers to further schedule and automate their daily cleaning needs alongside hundreds of web-based apps and smart devices.
Additionally, for customers with Amazon Alexa™ and Google Assistant devices, controlling their Roomba iRobot vacuum just got easier with voice commands. These devices allow users to start, stop and dock their Roomba iRobot vacuum.
“While there is no shortage of smart devices for consumers to integrate into their home, getting these devices to work together in a cohesive manner can be challenging,” said Gary Hall, senior director of digital product management. “From voice command services, like Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant, to IFTTT Applets, iRobot is continually pursuing ways to help its customers automate and simplify their daily cleaning needs.”
