Amazon Echo brings Voice Control to your home

Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. Prime members can also ask Alexa to order eligible products they've ordered before and many Prime products. All you have to do is ask.

In combination with a SONA home technology system, Echo can be configured to control any aspect of the system with your voice.

Use Amazon Echo to switch on the lights before getting out of bed, and automatically turn the kitchen TV on to the news, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair, or check on CCTV cameras – all without lifting a finger.

Echo has seven microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room—even in noisy environments or while playing music.

Watch the video below to see Echo in action controlling a family room cinema system, allowing the family to select satellite, movies and CCTV, and turn the system off, all with their voice.
