Automate Your Life - Onyx Review - Volume 2

Orion is “the next level of team communication.” So says reviewer Brian Read from Automate Your Life, a video blog focused on home and business automation. In a new video, Brian shares his Onyx review and rates its technology, automation capabilities, and more.

Read our recap and watch the video below to learn why he rated Onyx a 9 out of 10, and find out why Onyx makes voice workflows so easy to set up.

Introduction to automation for Onyx

You’ll also get an overview of how Onyx works with the automation service IFTTT (If This Then That): “When you connect Onyx to IFTTT, your options become essentially unlimited.” He uses it to control devices in his own home and create advanced workflows that he can trigger with Onyx. Keep an eye out for our upcoming post that features Brian’s in-depth video on this topic.

Push-to-Talk within the Orion app

In the video, Brian mentions that you can use your phone like an Onyx as well. It’s true: you can use the Orion app to stay in touch with your teams or important people. The Orion mobile app works just like Onyx and lets you connect with other Onyx users, so you and your team can mix and match the devices that work best for you.
