Did you forget a window open? VIKI takes care of the house on any weather

viki alerta meteo

The rainy and cool season is here, the season with capricious and often surprising weather – as we have seen in recent days. We no longer sleep with the windows open at night, but in the morning we have to open the windows, let the fresh autumn air enter the house. It’s just that in the morning we are too hurried and sometimes inattentive, forgetting to leave the house in order, so that when we return we have the comfort and peace that we have been waiting for all day.

VIKI helps us, again. The scenario is well known to everyone: in a hurry, we leave the windows open in the morning, forgetting to check the weather forecast. A few minutes of rain is enough, if it is torrential and the wind is still blowing, on the way back we may find a small flood or at least wet objects around the window.

You can now control the smart home VIKI with your voice

viki si alexa

VIKI and Alexa became closer friends this summer. The last time we told you about the “relationship” between the artificial intelligence VIKI and the Amazon Echo Dot (code name: Alexa) was in May, when compatibility tests were in progress.

Since then, the VIKI team has been able to integrate more and more voice commands into the application, commands that VIKI is currently able to execute promptly: setting a room temperature, displaying the weather forecast, opening the door, turning on / off the TV, playing / stopping the music player and more.

Thus, now we can talk directly to our virtual “butler”, and soon we will not need (too much) phone / tablet anymore, it will be enough to use our voice in order to control the intelligent house VIKI.

The proof can be seen in the latest video shot by the VIKI team during the tests.

Should we take our umbrella with us today or not? VIKI shows us the weather forecast, by days and hours

It’s the holidays season and it is important to know from the start as much information as possible about the place chosen as a holiday destination, in order to be better prepared.
Or, simply, what awaits us on an ordinary day at the office when we can’t decide what to wear or whether to take the umbrella with us.

Regardless of the situation, one piece of information that most people look for is the weather – today or next week, depending on our plans. The weather can ruin them for us if we are not prepared.

Modern and elegant design: when art meets technology

viki dispozitive vitrium

VIKI is the house of the future and it is ready to blend in with any scenery, to be that invisible “butler”, always ready to meet the wishes and needs of the inhabitants of the house. How can VIKI be invisible? With the help of technology, which nowadays can be confused even with art.

A smart home does not mean one full of wires, cables, boxes, gadgets, lined up everywhere. The technology of the future is already here, and the “magic” devices that help VIKI to be VIKI are invisible. In addition to the wireless communication mode, the smart home can integrate elements that you could think are just decorative.

An example of this is the Vitrum collection, with devices that can be used in the most demanding homes, without standing out in an unpleasant way.
