Apple Getting Ready to Introduce Its Smart Home Device
Only a few people have knowledge about Apple's latest project, which has something to do with Siri's integration to a smart home device.
Amazon was the first company to release a smart home device, which they called Echo. The Amazon Echo looks like a speaker that is an all-in-one remote control that can control everything at home.
Now, Apple is ready to show its prototype to the world and other companies, promising to offer the same benefits. The Cupertino-based company started the project two years ago, aiming to create a device that can compete with Amazon's.
Siri As The Main Control
According to a Tech Times report, the tech giant has been working with this technology for quite some time but the shipping company was the first to release it in the form of Echo.
Like the Echo, Apple wants to control the appliances, music and even the lights at home. There are some talks indicating that it will have some form of facial recognition through a camera and some other features.
The Siri speaker might be configured with Apple's new W1 chip, which was first seen in the recently revealed AirPods, according to Apple Insider. The report also noted that with W1, the speaker could use "one-click" setup to pair with compatible devices.
According to Apple executives, Siri is set to be on 'deep neutral network' to improve the quality of smart home device.
At the moment, the devices are still being tested in engineers' homes, as per the Bloomberg report. The prototypes are still at the development stage and still need approval from U.S. Federal Communications Commission approval.
Amazon is very aware with this latest project of Apple and the former company believes in the power of Alexa, the voice of Echo.
