SmartHouse - - CES 2018 // Swann - Writ­ten by ROMA CHRIS­TIAN

DIY home se­cu­rity brand, Swann, has un­veiled its new smart video door­bell at CES 2018, in ad­di­tion to the launch of Alexa & Google As­sis­tant voice con­trol sup­port.

The com­pany’s new “wire-free” and recharge­able Smart Video Door­bell gives users two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tion. For ex­am­ple, in the event a pack­age is de­liv­ered, home­own­ers can see the post­man and di­rectly talk to him.

The smart door­bell uses Swann’s ‘True De­tect’ heat-sens­ing tech­nol­ogy, while record­ing videos of vis­i­tors in HD.

Users also re­ceive no­ti­fi­ca­tions to their phone, in­form­ing whether a vis­i­tor has pressed the door­bell.

Travis Bed­ford, VP APAC at Swann af­firms:

“Wire­less tech­nol­ogy has al­lowed door­bells to get so much smarter and eas­ier to use”.

Also at CES, Swann demon­strated the use of its cur­rent wired se­cu­rity solutions with Google As­sis­tant & Ama­zon Alexa’s voice­ac­ti­va­tion sup­port.

Swann states ini­tially the prod­ucts will sup­port voice-ac­ti­vated soft­ware (e.g. Alexa & Google As­sis­tant), and “smart home as­sis­tant plat­forms” such as Google Home and Ama­zon Echo.

Users will also be able to view se­cu­rity footage via stream­ing ser­vices such as Google Chrome­cast and An­droid TV.

Mr Bed­ford states that its smart home in­te­gra­tion is made for seam­less in­te­gra­tion with ex­ist­ing tech:

“Con­sumers want prod­ucts that work seam­lessly with their busy lives and con­nect with their ex­ist­ing tech­nol­ogy. Our smart home in­te­gra­tions are de­signed to do just that”.

Aus­tralian pric­ing and avail­abil­ity is yet to be con­firmed.
