What if you could control your sit stand desk with a Siri voice command?
RightAngle Products has recently announced a new product that is the first within our industry – a mobile application that utilizes voice control to change desk positions.
New Voice Activated Desk Uses Siri and Mobile App
The NewHeights mobile app allows users to control and manage their NewHeights standing desk directly from their mobile device. The application has many features, but the most notable is its integration with Siri, the intelligent assistant from Apple. That integration enables users to change the height of a standing desk with only a voice command.
Other features of RightAngle’s mobile app include:
- Four programmable desk heights
- Receive notifications from Activity Assistant to remind you to stand up
- Pair with one or more workstations
- Container stop programming (upper & lower)
- Gyro sensitivity settings
- Easy table reset (if power is lost)
- Option to name paired desks
- Choose between imperial or metric for desk height
The NewHeights mobile app will be available for purchase August 2019.
How can I purchase the NewHeights app + compatible control box from RightAngle?
The app is free to download in the iOS app store, but you will have to purchase the app-compatible control box.
To purchase the control box for a new or previously purchased NewHeights desk, please contact your RightAngle rep, RightAngle dealer, or our Customer Service team.
You can contact Customer Service by calling 800.298.4351 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much does the NewHeights mobile app cost?
The NewHeights by RightAngle app is free to download in the App Store. However, desks must be equipped with the new Bluetooth enabled control box in order to utilize the app.
There will be an additional $45 list added to the list price of a new workstation to include the app-compatible control box.
The app-compatible control box will be $399 list for those who would like to upgrade an existing NewHeights workstation. Please note that desks currently equipped with the LOGICDATA control box will also need to purchase a new switch and power cord.
You may contact Customer Service at email@example.com with any other pricing questions.
Which standing desks are compatible with voice control and the NewHeights mobile app?
The app is only compatible with RightAngle’s NewHeights desks that are equipped with the new Bluetooth control boxes. Conference tables and desks with more than 3 columns are NOT compatible with the voice control feature of the app.
Request the Bluetooth control box for upcoming projects. If you’d like to upgrade to the app-compatible control box for an existing NewHeights desk, please contact Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is the NewHeights app available for iOS and Android users?
Currently, the app is only available on iOS and requires iOS version 12.1 or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
We are currently working to make the app available to Android users.
When will the NewHeights app be available for Android users?
The app will be available to Android users in September 2019.
Can I connect with more than one sit stand desk within the app?
A single user is able to pair with one or more desks, but can only be paired with one desk at a time. The auto-connect feature will connect to a paired desk when your device is within proximity of the Bluetooth signal.
How many desk height positions can I program into the NewHeights app?
You can program up to four different height positions per desk.
Which Siri commands can I use to move my standing desk?
Voice commands for each programmed height position is entirely customizable. You can even associate more than one voice command for the same height position.
Example: For your sitting position, you can program the phrases “sit down,” “I want to sit,” “sit,” or even “let’s relax” to move the desk. All of those phrases can be attributed to the same height position, or you can assign just one.
