Following up on its debut of KONKA TV displays earlier this year, China-based TV maker KONKA is now expanding its U.S. presence by entering the smart home market with an array of entry-level products, including smart doorbells, surveillance cameras, switches, plugs and lighting.
Via its KONKA North America subsidiary, the KONKA Group is using the upcoming Digital CES 2021 to debut what it calls an “amazing mix of quality, technology and value” for new smart home products that go along with its KONKA TV. The new KONKASmart product lineup will be available in North America beginning in Spring 2021.
KONKA debuted its TV displays for the U.S. market at CES 2020 with a lone of 4K OLED and QLED TVs, as well as a MicroLED video wall.
“The ultimate Smart Home is one where multiple advanced technologies mix simply and work intuitively to help make life better,” says Scott Ramirez, KONKA North America’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “KONKA is bringing this vision to fruition by combining KONKA Smart TV with CameraView, the KONKASmart OneApp, and a focused line-up of key KONKA Smart Home products that all work together to create the new KONKASmart Home”.
KONKASmart Home App Control
KONKA is entering the Smart Home segment with a carefully curated line-up meant to create the new KONKASmart Home, according to the company. In addition to Smart TV, KONKA will now offer video doorbells, smart cameras, smart plugs, smart switches and smart lighting.
All the KONKASmart products will be controllable via the KONKASmart OneApp, allowing all KONKASmart products to be controlled by one simple App. Plus, all products are Wi-Fi, so No Hub is needed.
In addition, KONKA Android TVs will seamlessly integrate with the new KONKA Smart Cameras. With CameraView, when someone presses the KONKASmart Video Doorbell, the image can automatically appear on the TV screen. In fact, all KONKASmart Cameras can be viewed on the TV screen, making the KONKA Smart TV the Hub of the KONKASmart Home.
KONKASmart products will also feature key interoperability features such as works with Google Assistant, works with Alexa, and works with IFTTT, creating a worry-free user experience.
Details will be announced at Digital CES 2021.
