Well, maybe not the best part. The best part could be the integration of smart voice assistants Google Assistant and Alexa directly in the soundbar. This means that when enabled, you’ll be able to say “Hey Google”, and the Sonos Arc’s microphones will pick that up. Give it a command, and the Sonos Arc’s Google Assistant will send the commands to your Google Home to take appropriate action.
As our Aqara products are all fully compatible with Google Home, this means that your Sonos Arc (and any other smart speakers, such as the Sonos One, Sonos Beam, and various Bose, Klipsch, and Harmon Kardon speakers) will be able to act as a voice assistant for all of your devices. Turn the lights on and off, or trigger scenes or routines. With the Aqara M2 Hub acting as a smart air-con controller, you’ll also be able to turn your air-con on or off with voice, or even change settings.
Basically, what this means is that if you already own a smart speaker, just one additional purchase of the Aqara M2 Hub gives you immediate smart control of your air-con, by smartphone app and voice.
With Google Homes gaining traction in Singapore and worldwide, there’s no better time to make your home smart. Even if it’s simply getting one appliance – an air-con – that’s a great start! And if you have a mix of Apple and Google devices (or even Xiaomi or Alexa) – we have a way to integrate all of this into a unified smart home for you.
