Nortek Releases Voice-Controlled Garage Door Opener
Nortek Security & Control, a provider of security, home control, and wellness technology, has launched the Linear PRO Access smart garage door openers: LDC0850 and LDC0852. Both models are powered by spott, an automation assistant featuring voice and app control, including location-triggered opening and closing.
"As part of NSC's smart home vision, the Linear PRO Access smart garage door openers further expand our comprehensive security and home control portfolio. Our goal with the spott automation assistant is to provide a powerful platform to make home automation easier with the addition of voice and app-controlled capabilities," said Robert Beliles, senior vice president of marketing and product management at Nortek, in a statement. "Unlike limited point products, these Linear PRO Access garage door openers are the industry's first to ship as end-to-end voice-controlled solutions when connected with smart home hubs, including Google Assistant and Amazon Echo. Monitoring and controlling your garage door is easier than ever. The spott automation assistant even provides passive garage door opening and closing. It knows when you're coming and going."
