Crestron’s partnership with Amazon demonstrates unique voice control
Crestron has been demonstrating its new voice control solution, with its partnership with Amazon, Crestron can now leverage Alexa Voice Service to build controlled scene that is fully adaptable to superyacht owners lifestyle.
Alexa can control music, lights, shades, temperature, video distribution and further designs that Crestron may provide.
“Crestron customers expect a truly integrated home technology experience. We’ve been collaborating very closely with Amazon Alexa engineers to make sure we offer an uncompromising voice control experience that is every bit as seamless and satisfying as tapping a button on a beautiful Crestron touch screen, remote control, or designer keypad. You can ask Alexa to set the mood for dinner or to play a movie in the bedroom, or let her know it’s too cold in the bathroom. Just say the word and your Crestron system responds immediately.” – John Clancy, VP of Residential Systems at Crestron
Of course, voice control is no new piece of technology, but it may be the first to more variety of control, so we are excited to see Alexa with Crestron’s twist, but let’s look at the other possibilities of voice control technology.
