Lasko Products, a market leader in home comfort, announced the launch of two new Works with Alexa products – the Alexa-Enabled 48″ Oscillating Tower Fan and Alexa-Enabled True HEPA Air Purifier.
Developed using Amazon’s Alexa Connect Kit service, both new Alexa-enabled Lasko products were collaboratively designed to seamlessly integrate Lasko’s dedication to home comfort into consumers’ smart home experiences. Amazon’s Alexa Connect Kit service simplifies the product set up for consumers and helps to qualify both products for the Works with Alexa badge.
Key credentials of both products include Works with Alexa, Certified for Humans and Frustration-Free Setup. When a consumer owns an Alexa device and orders the Lasko 48″ Oscillating Tower Fan or True HEPA Air Purifier through their Amazon account, the product can automatically pair with their Alexa speakers at home utilizing Alexa’s Frustration-Free Setup technology.
“As we continue to innovate and prioritize high-quality, functional products, we’re thrilled to now offer our customers timely, modern innovations that are as reliable as always, but with more convenience than ever before,” said Lasko Chief Executive Officer, Ed Vlacich. “Just in time for warmer weather and allergy season, the two new Alexa-enabled products are packed with special features to maximize convenience, comfort, and the overall user experience – all easily activated through voice command, the Alexa app, or directly on the front-facing product controls. We’re excited to introduce strong products to the Amazon Smart Home Store that meet consumer demand and offer an added layer of confidence through the Works with Alexa certification.”
Remote controls are a thing of the past with the new Alexa-enabled products. Consumers can now control their Lasko fan or purifier with an Alexa device or use the Alexa app on any smart phone or tablet. With Frustration-Free Setup, connecting to Alexa is a breeze! Operate all the fan and purifier functions with simple voice commands or set up routines that Alexa will perform automatically.
