Its release comes at a time when demand for voice triggered applications within the home is increasing.
Designed as an alternative to more expensive smart speakers, the remote control unit is fully compatible with existing voice remote systems and is triggered by one or more predefined keywords. “We are very proud to be one of the first providers that offers this solution integrated with Android TV. That gives users the possibility to talk to their smart TV like they are used to talk to other voice controlled solutions they already use. From now on, they can leave their remote on the coffee table while zapping through their favourite TV programmes”, said Miguel Oliveira, CEO, Tech4home.
The Smart Voice Remote’s underlying AI technology keeps energy consumption low and provides for a simple, but effective and interoperable voice control solution. It can also be used together with other voice triggered systems without even needing to change the set-top box.
Apart from the smart voice remote Tech4home will also showcase three additions to their Notus Family Series of remote controls. All three models feature voice integration with Google Android or any other voice control system like Alexa or Google voice assistant and are designed for specific use cases and user requirements. On the unique design features, Notus L and Notus M share the possibility of being customizable with Fabric and plastic replaceable covers.
