Amazon Alexa Voice Tech Added to eMotorWerks’ JuiceNet Platform
JUL 28 2016 BY JAY COLE
Want to monitor your electric car charger but are too lazy to move those fingers?
eMotorWerks has a solution for you, as the California EVSE maker has integrated Amazon’s line of Alexa smart home devices with its JuiceNet products.
Now you can both monitor and control your plug-in vehicle’s charging with voice commands through Alexa (via Amazon Echo)
“Alexa, what is my charging speed”
“Alexa, how much range do I currently have”
“Alexa, charge by 7am tomorrow”
…and other commands such as those
The new tech upgrade is now standard with any JuiceNet account and networked JuiceBox EVSE (such as the JuiceBox 40/Pro Edition pictured above).
“We are excited to be able to bring the convenience of Alexa to our smart-grid charging platform, offering our customers the most advanced and efficient car charging experience available on the market today,” stated eMotorWerks founder and CEOValery Miftakhov.
A note on what the heck JuiceNet is via EMW
JuiceNet enabled devices, such as the company’s connected, high-power JuiceBox charging stations, maximize charging efficiency & speed while providing EV owners intuitive control and visibility.
By shifting when and how much electricity JuiceNet-enabled stations draw from the grid, eMotorWerks helps utilities and grid operators reduce electricity costs, ease grid congestion, and absorb additional solar and wind power. eMotorWerks is paid by grid operators for those services and shares back a portion of proceeds to EV drivers via upfront purchase discounts and ongoing rewards for smart-grid charging.
