Computer maker ASUS recently introduced Lyra Voice, a mesh Wi-Fi router that also doubles as a smart speaker with Amazon Alexa built-in. Users can ask Lyra Voice to play music, hear the news, check the weather, control smart-home devices, and more.
As a winner of the CES 2018 Innovation award, Lyra Voice is a 802.11ac mesh Wi-Fi system and voice assistant with powerful stereo speakers, a microphone and integrated Alexa voice control.
Lyra Voice is a tri-band, AC2200-class device that communicates with other connected Lyra hubs to provide whole-home coverage with no Wi-Fi dead zones. It’s a good choice for wherever a smart assistant is desired — be it the kitchen, living room or bedroom, ASUS said.
The system also integrates with trigger and automation services such as IFTTT, making it easy to turn a traditional house into a connected smart home. Lyra Voice can also be configured and controlled easily using the intuitive Lyra mobile app.
