Lenovo builds smart home assistant

Posted January 07, 2017

We mean it when we say Lenovo Smart Assistant is Amazon Echo in a new package.

Pulse gives ADT customers remote access to their security system and offers some home automation features. It uses Amazon's Alexa to power voice commands and searches.

Ford Alexa integration will arrive in two phases.

The Amazon Echo is so popular that Amazon simply can't keep up with demand. The online retail giant has enabled Alexa devices to reorder from any Amazon Restaurant. "Frigidaire's Alexa skill for its connected air conditioner is just the tip of the iceberg".

"Alexa: Is my ADT system armed?". General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is one of the companies that has already confirmed plans to use Alexa on a new table lamp it is working on.

The third quarter was well underway before the Redskins got on the scoreboard, with Hopkins knocking through a 32-yard field goal. Jamison Crowder would have a 29-yard punt return, but a holding call pushed Washington back to its own 14-yard line.

"Ford and Amazon are aligned around a vision that your voice should be the primary way to interface with your favorite devices and services", Don Butler, executive director of Ford Connected Vehicle and Services, said in a statement. Once you've called up Alexa, you can have it report on the weather, play music or audio books, check news and add items to a shopping list, as well as control smart home devices from the auto.

The integration of Alexa into ADT will provide value to consumers, but also to SMBs who may be ADT customers as well.

Whirlpool is connecting smart appliances to Echo. It has proven to be a hugely popular segment, with Amazon Echo/Dot/Alexa and now Google Home all taking a slice of the pie.

"We constantly evaluate emerging technology, like Alexa, and its potential to improve how people watch and control their TVs", Niraj Desai, Dish's vice president of product management, said in a statement. Called Lenovo Smart Assistant, Lenovo is taking the popular digital assistant to places even Amazon hasn't dared go.

And now Alexa can now respond to your voice command and order takeout from Amazon Restaurants.
