India’s leading AC Brand, Voltas has taken the wrappers off two Smart ACs that can be controlled using simple voice commands with Amazon Alexa. The new range of ACs includes the Voltas Inverter Split AC and Voltas Split AC, both of which will be exclusively available on Amazon, starting today.
The Voltas Smart ACs can be controlled using Amazon Echo smart speakers, other Alexa-enabled devices such as Harman Kardon Allure as well as the Alexa app for iOS and Android smartphones. To get started, customers can enable their Voltas Smart ACs from the Alexa app and just ask Alexa to discover new devices.
Upon pairing their respective devices, users will be able to turn their AC on and off and change the temperature, hands-free, by simply giving commands like “Alexa, turn on the AC” or “Alexa, set AC to 23 degrees”. Furthermore, the ACs can also be controlled through the Voltas Smart AC App for smartphones over a wi-fi connection. Customers can access a host of other features such as changing modes based on weather conditions, switching on the timer function, and setting the fan speed based on comfort level.
Speaking about their latest launch, Voltas MD & CEO, Pradeep Bakshi said “Voltas has always been at the forefront of innovation & launching new technologies in the AC industry. Be it the launch of wi-fi enabled ACs or the window inverter ACs, Voltas has always kept its promise of delighting the customers. Consumers are increasingly looking for smart features facilitating convenience, and our partnership with Amazon (Alexa) is a step in this direction. The launch of India’s first voice-controlled AC is a unique development and a first for the Indian AC industry”.
Amazon India Country Manager for Alexa Skills, Dilip R.S added by saying “We believe smart home and Alexa is the future of how you interact and control your devices in your home. With the introduction of Smart ACs by Voltas and hands-free voice control with Alexa, customers can experience that smart home is not as complicated as many people once thought. We encourage more users to give this a try and experience the magic of voice control”.
Amazon India Appliances Category Leader, Suchit Subhas also said “With festive preparations gaining momentum across the country, we are excited to launch smart ACs by Voltas exclusively on Amazon.in. Customers can enjoy a smarter lifestyle with the voice & wi-fi enabled ACs that can be seamlessly controlled using Alexa-enabled devices.
