Lenovo has teamed up with Google to create the bedroom companion.
At CES 2019, Lenovo and Google have unveiled the Lenovo Smart Clock with the Google Assistant, the latest addition to Lenovo’s innovative smart living product line.
Purpose-made for your bedroom, the Lenovo Smart Clock helps you unwind in the evening, kickstart your day, control your smart home and listen to your favourite music with multi-room audio grouping.
As a convenient smart home device, the Lenovo Smart Clock supports voice and touch controls on an unobtrusive 4-inch IPS screen to perform tasks that are regularly carried out before and after sleep. With its compact size built for sitting on nightstands, the Lenovo Smart Clock blends into your bedroom decor, with a full fabric soft-touch cover and a touch screen.
“We’ve optimized the Lenovo Smart Clock to help users cultivate better sleep habits,” said Lenovo.
“We’ve created the Lenovo Smart Clock to serve as your ultimate bedroom companion to cut down on disruptive screen time throughout the evening and help improve your sleep hygiene.”
The Google Assistant makes it easier to set up sleep routines, such as dimming the lights and displaying your first calendar event with just a single command, such as “Hey Google, Good Night.”
“Don’t worry about your phone though, we’ve included a full-size USB port for convenient charging,” said Lenovo.
With multi-room functionality, you can also add the Lenovo Smart Clock to a home speaker group and play music, audiobooks, podcasts and radio across multiple devices in several rooms.
The Lenovo Smart Clock also works with Chromecast, so you can stream shows and music on your TV or speakers with just your voice.
What’s more, users can now have another convenient and affordable hub from which to control their home. Set the Lenovo Smart Clock when you wake up to automatically turn on your coffee maker in the kitchen or heater in the living room. Or check your front door security camera3 and the kids’ room from your bed.
The company said the Lenovo Smart Clock connects seamlessly with every smart device in your home, supporting over 10,000 products and 1,000 partners and brands.
“And in keeping with the desire for more uninterrupted sleep, we’ve made the Lenovo Smart Clock as unobtrusive as possible. And because we respect customer privacy, we’ve included a mute button for those who want the Lenovo Smart Clock to stop listening,” said Lenovo.
