Upgrade Gives Users Ability to Speak to Alexa to Manage All Aspects of Home Life
Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/27/2016 -- In a world in which technology is improving at a rapid rate, keeping up with all the latest gadgets that make life easier can be a tall task. November marks the 2-year anniversary of the release of the Amazon Echo, one of the first smart speakers that responds to the name "Alexa." It was the first major-brand smart speaker that featured a voice-driven user interface, capable of voice interaction, music playback, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, and providing weather, traffic, and other real time information. Recently, Amazon Echo and Control 4, the leader in smart home automation and home entertainment systems, partnered together to deliver hands-free home automation. It is a match made in heaven, as Control 4 allows customers to control numerous aspects of their home – from room temperature and shade position, to lighting control, security, and playing music – it truly does it all. This new integration means that Control 4 dealers such as Atlanta Audio & Automation can demonstrate the awe-inspiring abilities of the marrying of these two technologies.
"This move is a big one, and it means that home owners can walk in the front door, activate their Echo, and lock the door behind them while simultaneously activing their favorite Pandora station," commented Cheryl Ampel, Vice President and Owner of Atlanta Audio & Automation. She continued, saying "Integrating the Echo with Control 4 will result in a myriad of uses for home owners, and is sure to enhance the home automation experience."
Prior to the integration with Amazon Echo, Control 4 enabled customers to control all aspects of their automated home remotely. With the touch of a button on their smartphone, users were able to manage their home's lighting, music, temperature, and security. The combination of the two takes those useful, practical control elements and makes them compatible with voice commands.
