To this end, it is possible to send commands for lamps, air conditioners, vacuum cleaners and other home appliances that are compatible with Yandex's smart home system. In addition, you can connect the speaker to another speaker using a special wire.
The price of the smart speaker is 3,990 rubles. Its sales will begin on October 30 in the Moscow office of the company, and the next day in Svyaznoy and Beru.
