Quantify Technology integrates its device with Amazon Alexa voice
Tuesday, 14 November 2017 () Quantify Technology Holdings Ltd (ASX:QFY) has integrated the Amazon Alexa voice technology, using Amazon Echo products, into its patented flagship product, the Q Device. The Q Device, provides real-time evaluation of environmental and risk factors for building occupants and efficiently manages services and utilities. Quantify’s integrated product is in beta testing and has been added to its demonstration apartment on York Street, Sydney where it can be viewed by prospective partners and clients. Alexa is an intelligent personal assistant developed by Amazon, first used in the Amazon Echo and the Amazon Echo Dot devices. The integration with Alexa leverages the power of the Amazon cloud and provides Quantify with the tools to create more advanced features when paired with its core technology platform. The integrated product will be available in the future via Quantify’s recently announced distribution deal with Harvey Norman (ASX:HVN), which is estimated to deliver future revenues of around $25-$30 million per annum. Future developments will see a dedicated Alexa-enabled fascia developed so that users can simply replace an existing Quantify light switch face plate with a fully Alexa-enabled face plate. This will ensure access to full voice control in any room. The new integration opens up a wide range of new vertical applications for retirement living, hospitality, healthcare and other industries that will benefit from a digital assistant.
