Frontier extends focus into Smart Home IoT


Frontier Smart Technologies, a leading provider of Digital Audio and Smart Home technologies, announces that it has been chosen by KOHLER, a global leader in kitchen and bathroom products, to power its new Verdera Voice Smart Mirror with the Google Assistant™ built-in.


This is a key milestone in Frontier's strategy to evolve its focus beyond its traditional audio markets and into the broader smart home market.


The KOHLER Verdera Voice powered by the Google Assistant is a first-to-market model and features a high-quality mirror, adjustable LED lights and hermetically sealed stereo speakers. The LED lighting and speakers are voice-controlled via the Google Assistant.


Frontier's solution for KOHLER includes its class-leading Minuet module, SmartSDK and cloud services, which together deliver a fully integrated voice solution with the Google Assistant and Chromecast™ built-in.


The Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror with Google Assistant will be launched in Q4 2019.


Anthony Sethill, CEO, Frontier Smart Technologies, said:


"As our first dedicated smart home development, this is an extremely important project for Frontier. KOHLER is a global leader in high-quality bathroom and kitchen products. Their decision to choose Frontier's Minuet solution is clear validation of our strategy to extend our focus beyond our traditional audio markets. We are delighted to be providing the technology which will allow them to create the world's first voice-enabled smart mirror with Google Assistant built-in."


Jesse Lemel, Senior Product Manager - Styling Space, Kohler, said:


"In designing the Verdera Voice Smart Mirror with Google Assistant built-in, it was essential we had confidence in the technology behind this new voice control capability. With Frontier's track record in Smart Audio and its strong relationship with Google, I am pleased we were able to find a partner who could deliver on this requirement."
