The Amazon Echo Connect will attach Echo units to landline telephones. Yes, a landline as a result of protection.
The idea is with this add-on Echo homeowners will have the ability to dial phone numbers, like 911 or Pizza Hut or Mom, by means of simply the use of their voice. To do that, the instrument connects to a house phone gadget thru RJ-11 jacks. It makes use of the road’s present phone carrier to maintain the dialing.
This is obviously some way for Amazon to place the Echo as a part of a protected house setting. Instead of getting a pricey, devoted instrument to name for assist — say if an individual injures themselves — Echos may well be used as a substitute and set to dial 911 or house care carrier.
This instrument is become independent from the voice carrier Amazon rolled out to the units a number of months in the past that permits customers to place VoIP calls to different echo units or cellphones.
The Echo Connect is to be had for pre-order lately for $35 and will send later this 12 months.
