Just say "Hey Google, Set Home to Arm Stay" for smanos K1 System at IFA 2018

smanos, a trendsetting innovator and dynamic developer of wireless smart home and DIY security systems, was excited to be back at IFA in Berlin, and was proudly presenting its popular smart home security portfolio, with live demos of the K1 system that works with Direct Action voice interactions for the Google Assistant. The complete smanos smart home portfolio speaks minimalistic elegance, self-installation, and self-monitoring.


The K1, smanos’ premium smart home automation and security system, comes in a stack of esthetically pleasing round discs, ideal for placements throughout the house. “We have added a few cool features to the K1 smart home hub, the most noticeable of which is the introduction of Direct Action that works with the Google Assistant,” said Brian Borghardt, General Manager for Europe. “For us, it was very easy to adjust our app and cloud infrastructure. Integrating with the latest Google Assistant feature has enabled us to better serve our users across multiple languages. Instead of being limited toon a single device at home, we can meet our users where they are – on the phone, in the office, in the car, while watching TV – enabling them to interact with our products not just by voice but also by typing and tapping.” The newly enhanced Red Dot Product Design and Computex Gold Award winner K1 kit is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, and is available worldwide at an MSRP/RRP of €269.99.

Available separately or as part of the K1 system, the smanos UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera brings clarity, immersive vision and ease of use to home monitoring, powered by its surveillance-grade HD fisheye lens, superior night vision, and accurate motion detection technology. The smanos UFO camera can be mounted on the ceiling or any flat surface, and provides six selectable viewing angles for all possible monitoring needs, directly on your Android® or iOS® smartphone. The footage is stored on-site (via an optional microSD® memory card) for free, and soon can be accessed, shared and archived remotely via the cloud for a fee (3-Day Free, 7-Day and 30-Day options). The smanos UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera also works with the Google Assistant (Conversational Action) and Amazon Alexa and is globally available at an MSRP/RRP of €179.99.
