Plus X Award for the first voice-controlled hands-free DECT phone
Best Product of the Year 2019: the Gigaset Smart Speaker L800HX
Scarcely on the market, and the Gigaset Smart Speaker L800HX has already won the coveted Plus X Award. The device not only captured the seals of approval in the categories High Quality, Design, Ease of Use and Functionality, but was also chosen as the best product of 2019. The jury’s verdict pays tribute to the leading quality and innovation of Gigaset’s new smart speaker. For the first time, a vendor has combined traditional DECT fixed-line telephony with Alexa’s innovative voice control and hence with cutting-edge smart home solutions. The result: A voice-controlled handsfree phone that boasts excellent wide-band voice transmission and a VPA function.
Hands-free. Be free.
The Gigaset smart speaker is a DECT telephone and smart speaker in one. Use voice commands such as "Alexa, call 0171 123 456" to establish a phone call on the connected telephone base. And if your contact list is synchronised with your Amazon account, you can simply say "Alexa, call Tom". You can also accept or reject incoming calls, end calls and make internal calls with a single command. The only requirements: The Gigaset smart speaker must be connected to a power supply and Alexa as well as to a Wi-Fi network, DECT phone base or DECT-enabled router and the microphone must be switched on.
Conveniently make calls
Use commands such as "Alexa, call Tom" to contact people directly from your phone book. If you have multiple contacts with the same name, Alexa will ask which contact you would like to call. In addition, there is no longer a risk of making mistakes when dialling long numbers. When you make a call using a voice command, you can simply say "Alexa, call 0171 123 456". The Gigaset smart speaker will then initiate the call using the connected telephone base. If a number has not been completely understood, Alexa will repeat the number and you can confirm simply by saying "yes" or "okay".
Answer and end calls
If you have an incoming call, the light ring on your smart speaker flashes green and Alexa announces the call. Use voice command "Alexa, answer the call" or "Alexa, answer" to take the call. And if it's not convenient, say "Alexa, don't take the call" to remain undisturbed. You can even hang up without touching the device by saying "Alexa, hang up" or "Alexa, end the call".
Make internal calls
With sophisticated microphone technology and echo compensation, the Gigaset smart speaker ensures optimal intelligibility, even for calls with a large group of people — from family conferences to business calls in smaller offices. If the call has been accepted on a handset, it can easily be transferred to the Gigaset smart speaker. Assign a contact name to other handsets with the same DECT base to make internal calls to other rooms using voice commands such as "Alexa, call the office".
Communicate quickly and easily: The "listen in" function allows an instant connection to other Gigaset smart speakers and drop-in-enabled Alexa speakers in your network or to people who have allowed you to listen in. The drop-in feature is only available if the service is enabled in the Amazon Alexa app for your smart speaker and for all devices with which you wish to connect. If a Gigaset Smart Speaker is muted, the drop-in is automatically rejected.
Dance along. Be free.
Enjoy an endless variety of music in outstanding quality with the Gigaset smart speaker using audio streaming services or your own device via the various operating modes - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Audio - and easily select the source in the app. The 15-watt RMS music output guarantees exceptional sound quality.
Access audio streaming services
Music services like Amazon Music or Alexa Music & Audio offer almost unlimited options for music lovers. Use voice commands such as "Alexa, play Just Keep Moving" to play songs on your smart speaker. Play your favourite music from an external source using the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Audio modes. Once you have paired the audio device with your smart speaker, open the music player in the Gigaset companion app and the playback page will appear. You can then select the audio source as well as other playback settings.
Sit back. Relax. Be free.
Use voice commands to switch off lights, activate an alarm system or switch on the coffee machine. With the Gigaset smart speaker, you can now control your smart home without lifting a finger: The L800HX smart speaker is compatible with Gigaset smart security alarm systems as well as all other systems that support Alexa skills.
You can now use voice commands to easily secure your home with the Gigaset L800HX smart speaker and Gigaset elements alarm system. Before you leave the house, activate alarm mode quickly and easily with the voice command "Alexa, tell Gigaset I'm going now". After 30 seconds, the alarm system automatically switches to "not at home" mode for maximum protection of your home.
Are you already lying comfortably on the sofa and don't want to have to move to turn on the reading lamp? Thanks to the Gigaset L800HX smart speaker and the Gigaset elements plug, this can be done easily using voice commands. Simply say "Alexa, tell Gigaset: Living room light on!" and your lamp will do exactly what you say.
Alexa functions and skills with your Gigaset L800HX smart speaker
"Alexa, turn on my TV", "Alexa, dim the light in the living room, "Alexa, what's in the news?" - the many features provided by Alexa can help make your life easier. Just like apps on your smartphone, there are also various applications available to expand your Gigaset smart speaker. Choose the skills you want in the Alexa Skills store and make the most of the many useful features.
Voice commands: When do I say it?
The Gigaset smart speaker allows you to use the most natural method of communication: your own voice. Use a voice command to tell your smart speaker to perform an action, such as initiating a call, playing music or answering a question.
Here's how it works:
- All voice commands start with the activation word "Alexa". A tone sounds and the integrated light ring illuminates - this means the smart speaker is listening. Particularly useful in noisy environments: Start a conversation at any time by pressing and holding the telephone button on your Gigaset smart speaker.
- After the activation word, say what action you want the speaker to perform. There are no fixed formulations for asking a question or giving an instruction. Generally, Alexa key words are enough for your command to be understood.
- The tone will sound again, the light ring will flash blue and Alexa will then execute your task.
- If you want to cancel an operation, say "Alexa, stop", or "Alexa, thank you".
- To protect your privacy, you can switch off the microphone on your Gigaset smart speaker at any time. Alexa will then no longer receive voice commands.
