Cavalier's The Maverick was widely regarded as an elegant, attractive Alexa speaker when it hit the market last year. and now the company has added another Alexa-enabled device to The Air's The Air list. This is larger and has a LED clock display, but is as aesthetically pleasing as its predecessor. The 20W stereo speaker system also features a wireless Qi charger for added convenience. The new product still needs to appear on the company's website, but should arrive at $ 300 in early 2019, according to at least one blog that may have broken a press embargo.


One of Alexa's more unusual products, which was unveiled at CES, was the Daikin One +, an intelligent thermostat and controller for Daikin's Inverter-Inverter HVAC system. The idea is to "visualize" the air in your home and track the temperature and air quality through an ecosystem of indoor air quality modules in addition to other typical features of the smart thermostat. The company has not yet announced any pricing or availability details for its thermostat, which also supports Google Assistant.

Launch of the Daikin One + ™ Intelligent Air Management Intelligent Thermostat and Ecosystem

A sophisticated, integrated system of temperature control + air quality solution for the smart home of the world's largest HVAC company

HOUSTON & LAS VEGAS – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Daikin North America LLC today launch of the smart thermostat The Daikin One + ™ of an architecturally inspired, intelligent air control device for home. In addition to a typical smart thermostat, it is a controller for a fully professional HVAC system with a growing ecosystem of air quality modules to give consumers more control over the breath, and a world class HVAC experience.

"Daikin's philosophy is simple. Usability. Craftsmanship. Thoroughness. A sense of calm "

Daikin, the world's largest manufacturer of HVAC systems, has been an innovative provider of advanced solutions for residential, commercial and industrial applications for over 90 years. With the launch of the Daikin One ™ ecosystem, Daikin improves the status quo in the HVAC market, where players have been conservative in the introduction of IoT technologies and, until recently, the leader in the category of intelligent thermostats migrated to consumer electronics brands.

The Daikin One + Smart Thermostat is the first intelligent thermostat to offer complete bidirectional communication and serves as a cloud-ready hub and controller for demanding, communicating HVAC systems. Combined with Daikin's intelligent Inverter HVAC systems, such as the Daikin FIT ™ system, the Daikin One indoor air quality module ecosystem provides an unprecedented, integrated solution for temperature control and air quality , It allows people to " Visualize the Air ™" in their home and responds to clues to create a superior indoor climate. This is " Air Intelligence ™."

The Daikin One + smart thermostat differs in four points from other smart thermostats:

1. It's not just a switch to turn the HVAC system on and off. Other smart thermostats from consumer electronics companies lack the protocols for communicating with HVAC equipment. While some other HVAC manufacturers offer custom controls, they lack a sophisticated user interface and physical design.

. 2 In combination with the Daikin One ecosystem, it offers interior quality modules, including the Daikin One Air Filter, Daikin One Air Monitor and Daikin A Zone Monitor all working together seamlessly. For example, homeowners are notified when a contaminant event occurs and have the ability to operate the HVAC system to reduce the amount of contamination.

. 3 Due to its intelligence, the intelligent thermostat Daikin One + allows users to set different temperatures in different zones of a home so that residents feel comfortable where they are at home.

. 4 The thermostat interface allows the user to decide how to control the temperature of a home in two different ways: digital and analog. Daikin offers both technologies for simple and sophisticated control in an elegantly designed thermostat.

Recalibrating the Thermostat: World-Class Design for Exceptional Simplicity and First-Class Experience

The Daikin One + was designed as an intelligent thermostat in collaboration with Fred Bould of Bould Design , one of the leading manufacturers of industrial products in the consumer electronics industry and Silicon Valley. Bould, developer of many iconic consumer devices, has developed a state-of-the-art interface with Daikin engineers in Houston in partnership with Dubberly Design Office.

The thermostat design has a double square structure, which is a sophisticated structure of high-resolution digital color touchscreen on the left with the proven functionality of a classic analog dial on the right. This arrangement reflects well-established patterns of cognitive interaction (reading from left to right). For fast, fast temperature settings, the dial is the perfect tool. For a more comprehensive control, eg. For example, to set a schedule, a refined capacitive touch interface provides an easy-to-understand menu system. A simple touch on the display shows access to all settings.

New and occasional users see the current temperature, turn the command dial and see the setpoints. But just a few steps away are other key features – planned setpoint changes, energy-saving setpoints, and air quality values. Users can also opt for easy-to-use mobile applications and voice control via leading voice assistance platforms. While professional contractors can go deeper into the workflow, these settings are not appropriate for occasional users.

The gain of the touch interface is enhanced by a thin strip of light that projects an orange or blue glow under the thermostat to indicate the current. System Mode: Orange for heating, Blue for cooling. A proximity sensor wakes the thermostat when approaching to be ready for input.

Daikin took the same care in designing and developing the user interface, companion mobile app, and installer app.

simplicity. Usability. Craftsmanship. Thoroughness. A sense of calm, "said Dennis Thoren, vice president of technology strategy for Daikin. "We've developed the intelligent thermostat Daikin One + explicitly for three different audiences: casual users who just want to change the temperature; Homeowners who value maximizing efficiency and adjusting settings to their needs, and finally, had to work for our professional contractors, the people who installed the system, who had demanding technical requirements.

Inside the Daikin [19459029One+ Smart Thermostat

An integrated wireless LAN device connects to the homeowner app over the Internet, while a sub-GHz radio transmits data from remote sensors collects and communicates with other thermostats in the home to support independent devices zone control. With two processors, the thermostat can be connected to other thermostats and the associated app, collect data from remote sensors, and maintain bidirectional communication with the HVAC equipment to control the entire system. Geo-fencing automatically reduces energy consumption and saves money when nobody is home, and the device supports utilities demand response programs to further reduce energy costs.

The Daikin A cloud seamlessly integrates with Open Smart home architectures such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It has an open application programming interface (API) for other home automation platforms that allows consumers to easily use features like voice control. In addition, a Daikin cloud enables utilities to easily and effectively reduce energy use using the OpenADR 2.0 protocol, which allows consumers to benefit from lower utility bills.

Die neuen Elite 85h-Kopfhörer von Jabra bieten die Dienste von Alexa, Siri und / oder Google Assistant (je nach Präferenz des Benutzers) in Zusätzlich zur Geräuschunterdrückung und Schutzklasse IP52 für Regenbeständigkeit. Während das Rauschen unterdrückt wird, kann der Akku bei einem drahtlosen Headset wie diesem ernsthaft entladen werden. Jabra verspricht bis zu 32 Stunden Lebensdauer, selbst wenn diese Funktion eingeschaltet ist. Die Kopfhörer werden für 300 US-Dollar (oder 400 US-Dollar in Kanada, weil die Tech-Industrie es für unsere nördlichen Nachbarn hat) angeboten und werden ab April in Best Buy erhältlich sein.


JBL's Die neuen On-Ear- und Over-Ear-Kopfhörer der Live-Serie verfügen über integrierte Funktionen von Alexa und Google Assistant, auf die Sie durch einfaches Antippen der linken Ohrmuschel zugreifen können. Die Alexa-fähige Live-Serie beginnt bei 100 US-Dollar und endet beim 200-Meter-Live-650BTNC, der auch eine aktive Geräuschunterdrückung bietet. Die Kopfhörer sind für den Einzelhandel in diesem Frühjahr bestimmt.

Juno AI

Ähnlich wie bei dem oben genannten DUX-Smart-Bett besteht das Ziel des Juno AI-LED-Downlights darin, die digitale Unterstützung unsichtbar zu machen. Es ist nur ein einfaches und unauffälliges Smart-Downlight, es verfügt jedoch auch über JBL-Lautsprecher und Amazon Alexa, sodass es auch ein Smart-Home-Hub sein kann. Man kann es Kommandos sagen und Dinge tun, wie zum Beispiel von Musik verlangen, ohne dass ein nerviger Alexa-Puck den Laderaum verstopft. Es sind noch keine Preis- oder Verfügbarkeitsinformationen verfügbar, aber es gibt eine Mailingliste auf der Website des Unternehmens.


Die Audiofirma Klipsch enthüllte mehrere neue Soundbars auf der CES, darunter Bar 48W, ein Sound Bar mit integriertem WLAN- und Alexa-Support (sowie Unterstützung für AirPlay 2 und Google Voice). Models range from 40 to 54 inches in width and prices begin at $300 and can travel all the way up to $1,600. Most models will be available this spring, while some will start shipping as late as this fall.


It's the connected tech we've all been waiting for: smart toilets. Kohler began dipping its toe in the smart home waters last year with announcements regarding Kohler Konnect at CES 2018. This year, many of its creations are finally going on sale alongside the Numi 2.0 intelligent toilet, Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, and the Veil Lighted Collection of luminous bathroom products – all of which support Amazon Alexa (and some of which support Google Assistant, as well). The most interesting gadget of the above-mentioned items is the smart toilet, of course, because it sounds both ridiculous and potentially very luxurious. It offers personalized cleaning and drying functions, a heated seat, built-in speakers, and multi-colored ambient lighting. It also sells for a whopping $8,000. Find our coverage on the rest of the (super pricey) items here.


There's a new Amazon Alexa-enabled Nanoleaf challenger on the scene, and its name is LaMetric Sky. LaMetric Sky takes the same idea of customizable LED smart lights and makes them smaller and a little bit smarter with the option of having the mosaic tiles show live data. There's no pricing or availability information just yet, but more will likely be revealed this year.


The title 2-in-1 is usually slang for a laptop-tablet hybrid, but Lenovo debuted some 2-in-1s at this year's CES that are a bit different. Lenovo Smart Tabs are fully-featured Android tablets that double as smart displays when settled in their accompanying smart docks. Considering how little most people use either of those devices, the decision to jam those two things in one makes a lot of sense, at least for the consumer. There are two versions, the P10, which is the premium version for $300, and the M10, which is $200. The main benefits of the P10 are better specs (more storage, RAM, and a larger battery) a fingerprint sensor, glass back, and a smaller and lighter form. Pre-orders begin this month on Amazon and through Lenovo's own site.
