Several big tech giants, the likes of Google and Amazon have experimented with IoT (Internet of Things) technology and have brought about a revolution in the way we view our living spaces. It turns out, Japanese electronics corporation Panasonic is all set to step into the world of smart connected homes. On Thursday, Panasonic India launched its IoT and AI enabled connected living platform, called MirAIe.

‘Mirai’ means future and ‘ie’ means home in Japanese. MirAIe allows users to access all Panasonic devices in one place. What’s more? MirAIe also comes with an-built intelligent diagnostics tool that can detect performance issues in advance and potentially increase the lifespan of products.

Alexa, turn on the AC

The best part about MirAIe is that it can work in tandem with Google’s Home and Amazon’s Alexa, allowing users to control their smart devices with voice commands. Be it turning on the washing machine or opening the blinds, voice-enabled smart assistants can work in perfect harmony with MirAIe.

Warranty woes sorted
Another path breaking feature of MirAIe is that it offers e-warranty where all the warranty information and maintenance contracts of the products are digitally stored and you are notified if there’s a change in them.
