Since the beginning of this phase in our journey, we’ve outlined our vision for the smart home: protecting consumer choice and brand loyalties without sacrificing the promise of an ecosystem of cooperative services in the home. We are happy to take the next step in our commitment to Voice Interoperability Initiative (VII) and joining leading brands in this adventure; while ensuring customers have choice and flexibility through multiple, interoperable voice assistants when it comes to voice enabled products.

We believe users prefer to maintain a direct relationship with their trusted brands, without an intermediary. This quantifiable belief lead us to develop a collection of white label hardware and software solutions including a smart home hub with built-in voice assistant, Nevo Butler. These solutions enable brands to deliver unique and innovative branded-services directly to their audience, while supporting multiple voice assistants running on the same platform. A fair and vibrant smart home can only be realized through collaboration, and if conversational interfaces are going to play a major role in delivering services into the home (and we think they will!), it should be obvious that: “Voice services should work seamlessly alongside one another on a single device.” (quote from VII).
