Spectra Merchandising International will be spotlighting its newest models under the Jensen and SoLIS brand labels at CES 2019. Here’s a rundown of salient features of the products, including the inclusion in some of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant functionality.
The Jensen JAS-725 under-cabinet, Amazon Alexa-enabled Wi-Fi/Bluetooth stereo smart speaker music system is powered by the Alexa voice service. It features far field voice-control for command across a room to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more. Saying "Alexa" will play music, control smart home devices, get answers to questions, set calendars, or get weather and news updates. The speakerphone with a built-in mic for Bluetooth-enabled phones allows hands-free call answering. Bluetooth also allows direct streaming of music directly from a phone or tablet. The JAS-725 also features an auxiliary input jack for connecting a mobile device, as well as a built-in 4x LED work area light. Also included: mounting hardware and 120V AC adaptor.
Other featured models include:
- Jensen’s QiCR-50 dual-alarm clock with top-mounted wireless Qi charging. Also featured are two separate alarms. The white LED display sits behind the cloth front panel and is large enough to be seen from across the room. Other features include a dimmer control, sleep and snooze function and auxiliary input jack. The unit operates on 120V AC power, and has a battery back-up feature for saving your time settings in case of a power outage.
- Jensen’s QiCR-200 alarm clock radio, also new, also features wireless Qi charging.
A smartphone is also chargeable using a charging cable (not included) and the 2.1A USB port mounted on the back of the unit. Also featured are two separate alarms that let you wake to the alarm or radio and a digital AM/FM receiver. The unit operates on 120V AC power, and has a battery back-up feature for saving time settings in case of a power outage.
SoLIS's Google Assistant-Compatible Model
Spectra is also announcing the availability and newly finalized design of the SoLIS SO-2000 voice-activated Bluetooth/Wi-Fi wireless speaker with clock ($169.99) With Google Assistant built in, the SO-2000 lets users play music, find answers, manage everyday tasks and control smart appliances around the home by voice. The SO-2000 also features an easy-to-read LED display that automatically sets the time through Google Cloud. With Chromecast built in, music-lovers can stream favorite playlists from their phone, tablet or laptop. The Google Home app with multi-room sync functionality lets users play the same music to any combination of the SO-2000 and other multi-room-compatible speakers, or listen to different music in each room.
