How to get voice activation for motorised blinds?

How do you control your blinds with Alexa or Google Assistant?

We now live in a world of voice activation and automated processes. Have you ever thought if your existing smart home hub such as Amazons Alexa or Google home device can control your motorised blinds? If you own a new generation of Amazons Echo or a Googles Assistant enabled device you can now control your blinds by simply buying an appropriate hub.

If your blinds are Somfy powered you just need either a Somfy TaHoma or Connexoons hub. If your blinds use a cheaper motor such as the popular onetouch motors from Louvolite there is a hub available for these motors also. The hub is connected to your router and with an appropriate skill in the Alexa app you can have voice activated blinds in no time.
