Voice-activated free@home system
With the free@home system by ABB/Niessen, the entire home can be controlled, either in a conventional manner using wall switches or a panel, or from a smartphone, tablet or computer. This year, ABB/Niessen has taken another step forward by launching a new free@home functionality that controls up to sixty functions using voice activation.
This solution enables controlling the entire range of applications in a typically residential smart home, including lighting, heating and cooling, as well as control of shades and points of entry.
It is especially easy to use. For example, when you arrive at home in the evening, just say "turn on the hall lights", and the lights will come on. Users can also program the system so that it chooses the names of rooms and zones in such a way as to receive a confirmation that an order has been carried out. If, for instance, you say "lower the shades in the living room", you will hear "all shades in the living room have been lowered".
Niessen also features the Hit by Niessen sound system, the first system to adapt to the current way of listening to music and the radio. Based on Bluetooth technology, it connects to mobile devices so that users can listen to music in different rooms.
This new-generation sound system is compatible with streaming platforms such as Spotify, Grooveshark, iTunes and Tuneln.
