ProKNX announces its innovative voice controlled smart home assistant

ProKNX announces its innovative voice controlled smart home assistant
ProKNX has proudly announced the upcoming launch of their newest home automation product that will take the smart home industry by storm. Jens Kastensson, CTO of ProKNX stated that the initial idea for the development of PRATGLAD arose because of serious concerns about intrusions into the privacy of smart home device users.

"We see this as an unacceptable compromise. The constant recording of utterances and the nonstop transference of data to the cloud is a serious breach of privacy for the user, and a needless waste of energy. Along with Christian Kiefel, our CEO, we decided that there needed to be a workable solution to support a user's right to enjoy the comfort of smart home technology without having to deal with the negative aspects of owning a home automation device. It was from this pressing concern that PRATGLAD was conceived."

PRATGLAD, which means "chatty" in Swedish, is the first voice controlled smart home assistant that uses machine learning and 'Natural Language Understanding' to understand and respond to a variety of commands said in thousands of different ways. This allows it to work completely off-line to protect the privacy of its users.

PRATGLAD is an easily set up, inexpensive plug-and-play device that fans of IKEA's Trådfri products will be able to use to control all their smart lights and blinds by voice alone with no need for a remote control, app, or tablet. The cost of the device puts it well within the reach of the average consumer.  Unlike many other smart home assistants on the market today, PRATGLAD is individually customizable by the buyer, giving them the freedom to purchase and install the product by themselves, with no need for installation experts.
