Honeywell's Tuxedo Touch Gets Voice Commands
August 21, 2014
The home of the future took another step forward with Honeywell's announcement of voice command capabilities for Tuxedo Touch, its touchscreen security and home automation controller that can serve as the hub of a connected home or business. With this new technology, homeowners can use voice commands such as “leaving the house” to perform a range of tasks including arming their security systems, adjusting their thermostats, turning their lights off and locking their doors.
“Security today is just as much about the user experience as it is about keeping homes and businesses safe, and adding voice command capabilities to Tuxedo Touch is the latest illustration of that trend,” explained Alan Stoddard, senior marketing director, Honeywell Security Products Americas.
In addition to the voice capabilities, Honeywell announced several other enhancements to Tuxedo Touch, including:
- The ability to record video captured by security cameras
- Remote-upgradeable software that can be updated without having to schedule on-site service
- Support for higher-resolution cameras
