Apple HomeKit

apple home visual
With a little more patience and our help you could also create 'Automations' that control scenes or individual accessories when the sun goes down or when you get home. You can use Apple's Home App on your iPhone or iPad to switch on lights, close the curtains or turn up the heat. Or do it all at once with HomeKit scenes. And share with all people in your household.
Siri voice control

It's even more fun to talk to Siri in your own language. Siri currently understands more than 30 languages, including English, German, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

Instructions for talking to Siri can be found under support.‍

Remote acces

When you have an Apple TV or iPad you can control your accessories away from home and automatically through triggers such as time of day, location, sensor detection, or the action of an accessory. For more information see support.

Thinka allows you to manage your lights, switches, curtains, (Venetian) blinds and climate control. And it reads sensors such as temperature, humidity, CO2, motion, contact and occupancy.

See support for the latest supported devices.

Amazon Echo

Besides HomeKit you can use Amazon's voice assistant Alexa with an Echo. Thinka can be used for Alexa with the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.

Instructions for talking to Alexa can be found under support.

Using Alexa requires Thinka to connect to Amazon's Cloud. For more about this see support.
