Futuristic homes

This new launch will be a landmark project that will not only mark the Embassy Groups foray into a new housing segment, but it will also bring cutting-edge technology to all its homes using Amazon Echo devices. Echo devices are smart speakers powered by the Alexa VoiceService,which can turn living spaces into voice-enabled smart homes. Embassy Edge residents will be able to control smart home appliances, play music, and even order products from Amazon.in by just speaking to Alexa.

Alexa makes everyday interactions with technology simpler for customers. Using Routines, customers can configure Alexa to do multiple actions by simply saying a single command. Just saying ‘Alexa, I’m home’ will switch on the lights and the AC, as Alexa will greet you when you get back home. Customers can control multiple devices in groups and with multi-room music, Alexa can play the same song throughout your whole home seamlessly to get the party going.

Besides the at-home command capabilities, the Alexa voice service can also be accessed via smartphones, making it a perfect control and command centre, even when residents are away. Thecombinationof Amazon Echo and Alexa will enablelimitless social integration possibilities for the residents of Embassy Edge. Residentswill be able to experience the future of community living where homeowners can interact with each other, set up society meetings in the community, monitor movements, book cabs, order food and buy groceries–using just

their voice. Additionally, Amazon Echo devices can also enable residents to have greener lifestyle by automating their homes to optimise the energy consumption.

Commenting on the group’s entry into the mid-level segment, Mr. Jitu Virwani, Chairman and Managing Director, Embassy Group, said, “Following our success with luxury homes, we were keen to make our brand accessible to everyone. True to its name, Embassy Edge provides the much-needed smart home automation to the well-informed, modern home-buyers.

We are very happy to provide Amazon Echo smart speakers to residents, andbetter our offerings here at Embassy.”
