Smarten up at work – Z-Wave takes AI powered assistants to the next level of ‘cool’6 February 2018
Using Google assistant (amongst others), users can ask questions, control devices throughout a venue, stream music and more
At the Z-Wave Pavilion, visitors can get hands-on with the Milo Smart Home Speaker – also known simply as Milo. It is, according to Hogar Controls, the first-ever combination smart speaker and home hub to include support for Z-Wave Plus, and adds multi-platform access for Zigbee, WiFi and Bluetooth devices. Milo’s integrated smart hub feature also works with Google Assistant, so users can ask questions, control devices throughout the home, stream music and more.
A ‘sleek and sexy design’ with onboard one-touch scene control and a smart home mobile app, Milo uses the Z-Wave ecosystem for control of smart home devices including lights, shades, locks, thermostats, garage door openers, and more. Milo can be both a hands-free speaker or one-touch controller of favourite scenes.
Milo is an accessory device to the Hogar Controls Pro Solutions line up and gives integrators the ability to add in voice control, yet stay within the Hogar design aesthetic and functionality.
Hogar claims Milo will give professional integrators a compact device with powerful audio at an affordable price, allowing them to easily install several around the home to extend voice control throughout any property.
