Digital CES 2021 marks the entry of a new player to the Smart Home arena. KONKA North America, LLC, a subsidiary of the KONKA Group, a leading digital home entertainment manufacturer in China, joins the smart home market with the debut of its new KONKA Smart line-up. As with KONKA televisions, the new KONKA Smart products combine Quality, Technology and Value to bring new options with high value to retailers and consumers.
At Digital CES 2021, January 11-14, 2021 (https://digital.ces.tech/sessions), KONKA North America is introducing a line of Smart Cameras – including Video Doorbells, as well as Smart Plugs, and Smart Lighting products. Other sub-categories, such as Smart Switches, will follow.
KONKA debuted in the U.S. market a year ago with three Series of Android TVs that underscored the company’s mission of offering consumers high quality products that utilize the latest innovative technologies while still providing amazing consumer value. KONKA Smart is an extension of that mission and notably, KONKA has integrated features to tie these great products together.
“KONKA has developed a Smart Home line-up that includes the most important products in each sub-category and all of them are controlled by our OneApp with IFTTT.” said Scott Ramirez, KONKA North America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We have created a One-Stop Shop opportunity that provides both ease of use and ease of mind. Plus, our new CameraView App creates a unique synergy between KONKASmart Cameras and Android TVs, making the TV the Hub of the KONKA Smart Home. This creates a great experience for consumers and new merchandising opportunities for retailers.”
The 2021 KONKA Smart Home
When developing the KONKA Smart Home, the company prioritized simplicity of installation, ease-of-use, and effortless interoperability. Consumers entering the Smart Home category will find KONKA Smart simple, and those who already have Smart Home products will be able to integrate them seamlessly. All KONKA Smart products utilize KONKA’s OneApp, eliminating any switching between Apps. Plus, KONKA Smart products are Wi-Fi enabled, so No Hub is needed. To ensure interoperability, all models work with IFTTT, allowing the user to create “recipes” and scenes with other products. And, for convenient hands-free operation they all work with Google Assistant and Alexa.
