AWS IoT in the Connected Home – AWS Online Tech Talks – #AWS

Consumer device manufacturers are looking to build innovative products through cloud connectivity, but know that the development cycles to build that capability into the device or to build out a scalable cloud backend are costly and timely. AWS IoT provides services to easily build secure connectivity into the device itself as well as cloud services to secure, manage, update, and analyze those devices and their data. In this webinar, we’ll cover how AWS IoT services can be used in home automation to help customers build innovative products, for example by integrating voice control with Alexa. Hunter Douglas, an AWS IoT customer, will share how they’ve used IoT services to build their Alexa enabled PowerView Intelligent Shades.

Learning Objectives:
– Understand how IoT is transforming home automation and how you can use it to your advantage
– Learn how the AWS IoT service suite can be used in smart home devices with Alexa integration
– Learn how Hunter Douglas used AWS IoT and Alexa to build a new innovative product
