Sears Launches Alexa Skill for Kenmore Appliances
Sears Holdings has integrated its full line of Kenmore Smart appliances with Amazon's Alexa voice-enabled digital assistant. Additionally, Kenmore Smart connected room air conditioners integrated with Alexa are now available on Amazon.com.
The Kenmore Smart skill for Amazon Alexa enables customers to control their Kenmore Smart home appliances by simply asking Alexa. Customers can enable the Kenmore Smart skill in the Alexa Skill Store, link their account and then begin asking Alexa to interact with their Kenmore Smart appliances.
"Voice is a natural interface for the smart home, so we're thrilled that customers can now simply ask Alexa to interact with their Kenmore Smart appliances," said Charlie Kindel, director of Alexa Smart Home, in a statement. "We're excited that Kenmore has added Alexa functionality to these products, and we think customers will love the convenience of cooling their home, starting their laundry, and more, using only their voice."
"Working with Amazon is perfectly aligned with our omnichannel strategy to unleash the power and service of Kenmore and support the brand's growth," said Tom Park, president of the Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands at Sears Holdings, in a statement.
