"Success of the smart technology market depends on the fact that both individuals and companies are not locked in to one single smart system by their initial choice of intelligent technology."
VALBONNE, FRANCE, October 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The table-top smart speakers from ProKNX, available in English, German, and French, can be easily adapted for use in new or existing smart homes. The ProKNX plug-and-play smart speaker operates through a local Wi-Fi connection, enabling users to control lights, blinds, heating, Sonos speakers, and smart televisions by using natural voice commands, while not recording or storing any data from the user. The additional option of being compatible with widely available Philips Hue smart lights makes the smart speakers even more accessible to the smart home market.
Christian Kiefel, CEO of ProKNX stated, "The key to the increased adoption of smart technology by the wider public is interoperability. The success of the smart technology market depends on the fact that both individuals and companies are not locked in to one single smart system or solution by their initial choice of intelligent technology."
Philips Hue lighting consists of an extensive range of high quality bulbs, lamps, and light-strips. This wide choice of products gives the user a complete solution for an entire home, without any need to rewire. The smart lighting is designed with versatility in mind. Consequently, the options for using the lighting system are extensive. The user has the choice of the Philips Hue app, a remote control, or voice control to change the environmental lighting. ProKNX has developed their smart speaker capabilities to control Philips Hue smart lighting with a single vocal command: "Hey Snips, turn on the lights!".
Individuals can use a ProKNX smart speaker to activate or change ambiance and lighting colour with naturally spoken voice commands. There is no need to use a touch-screen. This comes with the advantage that all residents in the home can easily control the lighting when needed.
The ProKNX smart speaker has won an award for two years running at the prestigious Smarthome Germany annual conference, in 2020 and this year in 2021, in the category of Best Smart-Home Product of the year. ProKNX has now made their unique offline smart speaker system available to companies that are looking to expand into the rapidly growing smart-home market, but do not have this advanced technology available to them.
ProKNX is a dynamic IoT company. It develops and sells offline smart home assistants that provide all the comforts of a cloud-based system while maintaining the consumer's privacy. ProKNX has more than 10 years of experience developing innovative, prize-winning smart home devices for the KNX Home Automation sector. ProKNX works in collaboration with Jung, Gira, and Sonos to produce high quality devices for senior living, homes, hotels, and offices. Its flagship product, Aragon, has been listed in Germany as one of the best smart home products for both 2020 and 2021.
