Control Your Digital Life System Using Voice Commands  

AT&T1 Digital Life will launch a new Voice Assistant mobile app that allows users to use their voice to control certain aspects of their Digital Life home security and automation system, including being able to ask questions of the system,[1] . The app is in active trials now with a commercial launch planned for the first half of 2016. AT&T Digital Life will demonstrate the app’s features at the AT&T Developer Summit at CES 2016.

The AT&T Digital Life Voice Assistant app uses Interactions’ Curo™ speech and language platform to respond to natural English language voice instructions. The Voice Assistant app complements the Digital Life app and gives users a new alternative to managing some of the system’s most commonly used functions.

Using the initial version of Digital Life Voice Assistant, provided for iOS and Android devices, users can:

  • Ask questions such as, “is the security system armed?” or “is the back door locked?”  
  • Partially control the alarm system and home automation devices with commands such as “set the system to ‘Armed Stay’,” “turn off all lights.” or “set the first floor thermostat to 72 degrees,”
  • Choose to hear voice announcements, such as “the Digital Life system was disarmed,” or “the garage door was opened.”

“Communicating with your Digital Life system using your voice and natural language is a convenient way to get even more out of your service than with the Digital Life app alone.” said Kevin Petersen, president, AT&T Digital Life. “As we add new devices and services to our managed platform, we’ll continue to introduce and extend features like the Voice Assistant to make Digital Life services even easier for customers to use.”
