Amazon Echo To Make Synchronized Smart Homes Across 20 Cities In India
“Smart Home” is the term commonly used to define a residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room.
Online store, Amazon, one of the top online retailers in India, had announced the availability of their Echo devices: Echo Dot, Echo, and Echo Plus for purchase in India, they want to make ‘Synchronised Smart Homes’.
Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers, designed entirely around the speaker’s voice. They are always ready, hands-free, and fast. Alexa is the brain behind Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Spot and Echo Plus. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question—just ask and Alexa will respond. Alexa updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. And thus Alexa can make your life easier and more fun.
Alexa runs on cloud and will answer questions, play music, turn the lights on and off, give sports scores, check the weather, call your friends and family and more. With far-field voice control, you can do all this from across the room using just your voice.
Echo users can keep in touch with each other using the Alexa-to-Alexa calling and messaging feature. To do this, users need to have supported-Echo devices or the free Alexa app on their Android or iOS mobile phones.
To enhance the entertainment experience, Amazon has introduced the multi-room music feature that allows you to play and control music across multiple Echo devices at the same time. In addition, users can set up routines for Alexa to perform a series of actions from a single voice command.
The products are now already available in India through online purchase and also from over three hundred retail outlets across India. Amazon is excited to make Alexa and their Echo devices available for all customers, make their ‘Synchronized Smart Homes’ and anxiously waiting to hear their experiences.
Similar Echo devices are also available in the market. Some of the product reviews are available online. Though it includes about their plus and minus points, some more points are also to be considered and evaluated before we conclude our opinion. A few point about which the customers are anxious about are:
Like smart phones can recognise more than one fingerprint, can Echo device also recognise more that one voice and accept command?
If only one voice,then how can we use Echo – voice control devices in a Smart home?
Another interesting point, which might turn into a serious issue is, about voice imitation by mimicry artists. There are many mimicry artists who can imitate the voice of other people. And they imitate others voice so well that you can not make out whether the voice you are hearing is the true voice or by the duplicate person. And you cannot rule out the possibility of the Echo device mistaking the imitated voice to tbe the true voice and accepts the command?
Emergence of advanced technology has brought about unbelievable changes in our lives. And we cannot rule out the possibility of some new advanced technology developed, can threaten this “sound recognition technology”. And imagine the kind of damages it can cause, to us and to our society. Won’t it be a very high security risk?
As of today Smart Home is yet to become a Reality. Though people have started experimenting building smart Homes in different parts of the world, people are yet to experience building one and living in there.
Generally, smart homes have special designs and everyone may not be well versant with the technology and may not be able build one for themselves. So we need to have agencies who can build a smart home for you ensuring the quality and operation and maintenance at a competitive price.
Let’s us hope that we all will get a chance to live in a smart home.
