Google Assistant and IFTTT join Alexa on Optoma’s smart 4K UHD home projectors

 

 

Google Assistant can now be used in the UK on Optoma’s smart 4K UHD home projectors - UHL55, UHD51A and UHD51ALVe, and will be available on the forthcoming UHZ65UST ultra short throw laser 4K UHD projector, due to launch this summer. 

In addition, these projectors are also now compatible with IFTTT.  IFTTT (If This Then That) is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets. Applets are used to trigger events such as getting a projector to turn off when you leave the house or dimming lights when the projector is switched on.

Kishan Mistry, Product Manager at Optoma, said: “Consumers are increasingly integrating voice assistants into their daily routines, as well as expecting the convenience of smart home integration with their devices and electronics, so it was important for us to align our new home cinema projectors with these growing consumer needs.”

These projectors already had Amazon Alexa compatibility but users can now also control these with voice commands via Google Assistant in conjunction with a Google home device or Android smartphone.  As voice assistants continue to expand their presence and function in smart homes, Optoma is enabling home cinema enthusiasts to integrate large-screen imagery into smart homes, tying in with speakers, screens, lighting and more.

Like Amazon Alexa voice control, users need to connect the projector to a WiFi network and register the projector within the Optoma MyDevices Account to pair the device with Google Assistant.  A dedicated set up guide for both Alexa and Google Assistant is downloadable from the product page on Optoma’s website.

As well as turning on/off, switching source input, altering the sound output and controlling the inbuilt media player, Google Assistant can also select the various display modes and HDR picture modes, as well as selecting PureMotion options.

*Amazon Alexa voice control is only currently available in the US, UK and Germany.  Google Assistant is available in the US and UK.
