Today we are announcing the availability of a new security-focused sound profile: speech detection, to hear if someone is talking in the house when no one should be in. Enabled devices can then intelligently respond through alerting consumers or triggering a wide range of actions from connected smart home products. The home’s personal assistant can either disturb the uninvited guest or let the owner know that family are home.
This new sound profile complements our suite of security and safety sound profiles (glass break, dog bark, smoke alarm, CO alarm and anomaly detection) to provide consumers with even greater peace of mind when it comes to unattended homes. For the consumer tech brands that embed our software into their products, they can add unique, intelligent benefits that enhance value propositions and retailer ranging decisions.
“A major selling point for smart home cameras is their ability to detect people but these products have limitations, such as the field of view. Our new speech detection capability enables leading tech brands to offer 360-degree coverage on their products. Intelligent sound recognition enables device manufacturers to tackle these limitations, enhance value and offer consumers the ability to always be in, even when they’re out,” said Audio Analytic founder and CEO Dr Chris Mitchell.
