Amazon Alexa Connect Kit: 5 Things You Need to Know

The Amazon Alexa Connect Kit (ACK) is becoming exceedingly important to businesses that want to capitalize on the Internet of Things (IoT) and rising demand for voice enabled connected products. How can your business benefit from ACK? Here are five things you need to know.

1. ACK can transform any product into a connected one.

If you're wondering whether Alexa can be integrated into your products, the answer is yes. ACK allows you to add Alexa to any product — from coffee makers to artificial Christmas trees.

2. ACK includes everything you need to launch smart products.

ACK uses an Amazon-managed system-on-module that you integrate into your product. In addition, the kit provides managed services, software, and tools you can use to develop and manage Alexa-connected smart products on an ongoing basis.

3. ACK offers cost certainty.

The ACK module can be integrated into a product for a one-time fixed cost. Then, you pay a per-device fee that includes both the hardware module and continuous use of the ACK cloud service.

4. ACK accelerates time to market.

With ACK, you won't have to build an Alexa skill, manage a cloud service, mobile application, or create a network and security firmware to add Alexa to your products. Instead, ACK helps you quickly connect your products to the Internet and Alexa.

5. ACK enhances the customer experience.

Thanks to ACK, your customers can use Alexa to control your products in the same way they control their Amazon Echo. The bottom line: you can use ACK to provide your customers with exceptional experiences.
