Walton launches new AC with offline voice command

Electronics giant Walton has introduced another new series of split type air conditioner (AC) named Oceanus, featuring offline voice command function, ultraviolet (UV) care, frost wash and more advanced facilities.

Users can control the AC with a voice command function without using a remote control. This AC is also designed with energy-saving inverter technology.

Walton Hi-Tech Industries Director SM Mahbubul Alam unveiled the AC at the programme “AC Service Experts Meet 2021” in Gazipur on Thursday.

Ariful Islam, Walton’s AC research and development department head, said, “The AC will be in standby mode when power is connected. At this time, saying ‘Hello Walton’ will turn on the AC’s active mode.”

“Also, the user will be able to operate the AC with instructions. To set a specific temperature, one will have to say the desired temperature with the command – cool mode.”

“If one says 20 degrees, the AC temperature will be set at 20 degrees. The users will have to say ‘AC off,’ to turn off the AC,” Ariful said.

“If the users do not give any command for 10 seconds, the AC will go into standby mode. In this case, they will have to turn on the ‘Active Mode’ again by saying ‘Hello Walton’. Another command can be given three seconds after that.”

Also, the new AC’s UV Care technology will destroy bacteria and viruses – present in the indoor air. Frost Clean technology will automatically melt the ice inside the AC and take it out.

So, the use and maintenance of this AC will be hassle-free. Walton said.
