What’s the next step after you’ve draped every single piece of hardware you own with RGB LEDs? Controlling them with your voice, apparently.

Thermaltake has added voice control functionality to the latest version of its TT RGB Plus Ecosystem mobile app. Dubbed TT AI Voice Control, it will let you access most of the settings by saying “Hello TT”.

Thermaltake is no stranger to RGB lighting and it’s long offered app-based solutions for setting your desired lighting effect. However, with disparate products like the Toughpower iRGB Plus PSUs and TT Premium Edition Riing fans, many of them ended up having their own software and apps.

This resulted in quite a fragmented ecosystem, which is exactly what the TT RGB Plus Ecosystem is trying to fix.

The company’s new RGB Plus products are now tied together (compatibility has been extended to a handful of older products as well) under the RGB Plus mobile app, so you can control them all in one place. The RGB Plus products already span quite a wide range, and they include CPU and GPU water blocks, liquid-cooling reservoirs, LED strips, fans, radiators, input devices and even power supplies.

That said, you’ll need to install the TT RGB Plus software on your desktop as well before you can set up the mobile app.

In addition to basic lighting controls such as lighting mode and colors, the app also offers useful features such as fan speed adjustments, system warnings, and sound and lighting synchronizations that will let your PC pulse in time with your favorite tunes.

TT AI Voice control is currently only supported on the iOS version of the app, but you can expect the feature to arrive on Android soon.

It will let you change a wide range of settings using voice commands, but this means you’ll also have to remember an equally large number of keywords. You can even perform multiple actions at once by stringing together the lighting mode’s name, color, and the keyword for the speed interval you want.

Of course, this sounds like there’s a lot of potential for confusion, so most folks may only use it for simple commands and for the novelty factor. You’ll also need to have your phone in hand to issue those commands, so you won’t look quite as cool snapping out commands left and right.
