Over the years we’ve become accustomed to touching buttons on some device—smartphone, tablet, remote, or something else—to operate the lighting in our home’s. But increasingly, manufacturers are enabling their product to be operated via voice commands. Stack is one of the latest companies to jump on the voice control bandwagon.
Stack smart light bulbs product now integrate with Alexa technology to allow 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 it’s movie time.

Additionally, Stack is adding 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 it’s very bright in a room.
“With the help of strategic partners like Amazon and IFTTT, the ability to adjust and optimize light without manual intervention is quickly becoming a reality for households today,” says Neil Joseph, Founder and CEO of Stack. “We’re always trying to find new ways for Stack to integrate and work with other like-minded products and these integrations allow our users to create the types of experiences that have long been the goal of the IoT community.”
Stack’s innovative light bulbs are equipped with embedded sensors that enable the lights to dynamically react to natural light and occupancy. Both the Stack Classic and Downlight run on open IoT standards and can help expand the capabilities of other compatible smart home devices. Stack is also a Works with Nest partner, offering a direct integration that can seamlessly enable your Nest Learning Thermostat to turn up your air conditioning if Stack senses that your family is in a room that runs warmer than the rest of your home.
