Systemline adds Amazon Alexa voice control to E50 music system
Systemline has enhanced its E50 built-in music system with the integration of Amazon Echo Dot, which is powered by Amazon’s Alexa far-field voice control.
This will allow users to issue voice commands such as “Alexa, play folk music from Spotify”, “Alexa, play BBC Radio 4 from TuneIn”, “Alexa, skip track” or “Alexa increase volume”.
Launched earlier this year, the E50 was designed to meet increasing consumer demand for high quality built-in music systems at an affordable price, enabling professional electricians and electrical installers to add value to installations.
The system retails at £275.00 and has a combined touch-sensitive control panel, Bluetooth audio receiver and amplifier that fit within a standard 45mm deep UK double-gang back box.
It comes complete with a pair of high performance 6.5” ceiling mounted speakers manufactured by Q Acoustics, cables and mounting back box.
E50 incorporates both front and rear auxiliary input sockets, allowing homeowners to connect television sound or other external music devices, and already features contactless gesture control that lets users adjust the volume, mute and skip tracks without touching the device.
Paul Hilditch, Brand Manager at Systemline, said: “The Systemline team has put considerable effort into optimising the connectivity of E50 to ensure that it integrates well with the new wave of exciting products like Amazon Echo Dot or Google’s Chromecast Audio. E50 is a highly sophisticated product that adds the ‘wow’ factor to any home.
“Easy to install, the E50 does not require any configuration or product-specific training. Therefore it is the perfect audio solution for professional electricians and installers who are looking to increase their portfolio of solutions that they can sell when working on new or existing projects.”
