Snips for Home Appliances is the first lightweight and cost-effective voice solution that can be customised to smart home appliance, with use cases across any type of hardware, from MCU to MPU, and using simple voice commands (e.g., “turn on”, “turn off”, “stop”, “play”, “pause”, etc.) or full natural language (e.g., “what time will the roast be ready?”).
Home appliance brands and OEMs looking to integrate the Snips voice solution will enjoy all the benefits of our technology, including on-device and fully offline operability, empowering companies to retain complete control of their brand identity, customer relationships, and end-user data. As a white-label solution, Snips for Home Appliances empowers brands and OEMs to own the voice interaction with their products, including custom wake words. Additionally, companies will benefit from our transparent business model, which includes perpetual pricing per device and is BOM-oriented, making our clients’ business case expenses predictable compared to traditional cloud providers and their price-per-request models.
Snips for Home Appliances is a pre-packaged software solution that includes:
– a customized API for specific devices, with additional customization set by brands and OEMs for the unique action code that triggers a device to react to the user’s intent;
– hardware reference through Snips partner ecosystem.
Brands and OEMs will benefit from a quick go-to-market, no integration delays, and best-in-class voice pairing for their range of manufactured appliances.
This year’s IFA will see a Snips booth full of new demos. Including a voice-controlled refrigerator with numerous integrations (shopping lists, reminders, alarms, timers, LocalTime, weather, conversions), an induction stove, smart lights, a thermostat, and a washing machine.
The refrigerator, stove, and lights will be running on Snips Flow, our on-device and offline natural language voice assistant with performance on-par or better than cloud-based solutions. Both the refrigerator and stove will be seamlessly linked through Snips Satellite. Our closed-circuit wireless voice streaming that fuels voice control throughout a home using a “hub” and several “satellites” communicating across a mesh network.
Our IFA booth will also feature a washing machine running on Snips Commands: our embedded voice interface that easily recognises a set of simple commands following a wake word. Snips Commands functions on extremely low computing and memory usage. Making it the ideal product for affordable home appliances that need plug-and-play functionality rather than full natural language voice interactions.
In addition to refrigerators, washing machines, cooking stoves, and smart lights, we are on-track to provide our new Snips for Home Appliances solution as a one-stop shop to manufacturers of an array of additional devices. Including dryers, dishwashers, microwaves, ovens, hoods, cookers, faucets/showers, boilers, trashcans, fans, locks, doors/gates, air conditioners and heaters, air purifiers, blinds, boilers, camera, coffee machines, mops and vacuum cleaners, sprinklers, and many more. Look for Snips for Home Appliances as a one-stop voice integration solution for all smart home use cases in the near future!
