Reverie Adds Voice Activation Technology to Product Line
Adjustable bed producer Reverie has announced the addition of a voice activation feature to its product line that will allow hands-free operation of its adjustable power bases through Google Assistant or Amazon Echo devices.
The platform, Reverie Connect, can receive up to nine voice direct commands that will activate the base to various user-defined positions as well as pre-set positions, including zero gravity and flat.
“As households continue to add smart home technology at a rapid pace, we continue to be the leading authority for technology in the bedroom for a better sleep environment,” said Martin Rawls-Meehan, president and CEO. “Not only does Reverie Connect enable the consumer to adjust the power base with direct voice commands, owners of Google Home devices could integrate their base with their whole bedtime routine and initiate the entire process with a set of commands.”
Rawls-Meehan said Reverie is the first adjustable base manufacturer to partner with Google on voice activation technology by using Google’s “Smart Action” commands, which streamlines the voice activation process.
For example, a user could say “Hey Google, set bed position to zero gravity”; or, “Hey Google, set bed position to anti-snore”. Programming allows consumers to program up to three custom memory positions that can also be selected with voice activation.
Future updates will follow for the incorporation of sleep tracking data and will provide tips to assist consumers in getting a better night’s sleep.
Reverie Connect is an add-on feature that will be available on all Bluetooth-compatible power bases in the company’s 2019 product lineup. The technology can also be added to older models that already have Bluetooth capability.
The platform made its debut at the recent CES technology show in Las Vegas and will be shown Jan. 27-31 at the Las Vegas Market. Reverie’s Las Vegas showroom is space B-925 of the World Market Center.
