Bringing the Smart Home Vision to Life
Lenovo Smart Home Essentials is a new family of connected devices that offer a simple, one-stop shop for a smarter, more intelligent home. It addresses today’s fragmented smart device landscape.
Lenovo’s family of connected home essentials – and the recently launched Lenovo Smart Display – signal the company’s growing and multi-platform AI ecosystem and ambitions in the smart home category.
The Lenovo Link app serves as a centralised control centre to set up and manage all applicable devices. No more separate app for each device. The app works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Customers will be able to easily set up, automate and control various aspects of the home with just their voice using the Lenovo Smart Display as a control hub.
Lenovo Smart Essentials includes:
- Smart Plug – a small, simple-to-use device that can be plugged into any open outlet, letting users control any compatible device that’s plugged into it
- Smart Camera – a smart surveillance camera that lets you monitor live video footage inside the home—even at night—through infrared night vision. Its built-in mic and speaker allow for
- Smart Bulb – a smart light bulb that lets users remotely schedule and customise lighting—adjusting colour temperature and dim brightness, or turning it on and off from anywhere and at any time through the Lenovo Link app.
The Lenovo Smart Essentials range of products will be available starting in the US in November and is expected to expand to other markets including EMEA and Australia later. Lenovo Smart Display is expected to be available in Australia and the UK starting in October.
