HouseLogix Launches Patented Wireless Speech Control Module for Home Automation

HouseLogix, a Pennsylvania-based provider of advanced hardware and software products for home control, today announces the release of VoicePod®, its patented wireless speech control device for home automation systems. VoicePod adds both voice recognition and speech synthesis capabilities to popular home control systems such as Control4. Users simply say "Hello VoicePod" from anywhere in a room to activate VoicePod and then issue voice commands such as "turn on the lights", "secure the house", "good morning" and "listen to music". Utilizing embedded speaker-independent voice recognition technology that requires no web access, VoicePod instantly interprets speech commands for voice control of TV, music, thermostats, lighting, shading, door locks, cameras and more.

VoicePod provides many handy voice control features that add speed, convenience and safety to everyday living. For example, users can select TV channels simply by speaking a channel name.

Hands-free control of thermostats is also supported. Users can even ask VoicePod questions such as "what is the house status?" or "what is the weather forecast?" and VoicePod verbally delivers the requested information. VoicePod can also speak in response to any event, alerting users to security concerns such as open garage doors or unusual temperatures or weather conditions.
