The new lineup of Yandex smart home products have been unveiled by the Russia-based brand as a series of solutions that will offer a low-cost way to get started with a connected living space. The products include the Smart Plug, Smart Bulb and Smart Remote Control, which are priced at 1,190 rubles ($19) for the first two and 1,390 rubles ($21) for the latter, respectively. The products will be available towards the later end of June on Beru and at the Yandex store located in Moscow, and are all programmed to work seamlessly with the Alice voice assistant.
The Yandex smart home products were boasted by Head of Alice-enabled device development at Yandex Denis Chernilevsky who said, "A year ago we brought Alice into users’ homes with the launch of Russia’s first smart speaker, Yandex.Station. These new smart home capabilities will offer Russian users the next level of automated living, complementing Alice’s existing comprehensive skill set. Today we’re bringing our users a voice-controlled smart home ecosystem powered by Yandex’s world-class speech and AI technologies."
