Step Into The Future Of Home Automation With Indian Languages
February 22, 2023
I want to upgrade my home to a smart automated home, but it is easier for me to speak in Hindi, rather than in English. What if I get a smart home automation system that does not understand what I am trying to say in Telugu? Will I have to undertake spoken English classes to instruct it or will it learn Hindi and Telugu for me? We’re kidding. Nobody needs to learn English to communicate with technology.
If these are the things that you are thinking about before updating your home to a smart home, we can help you make an informed decision.
Let’s get into the basics, first.
Smart home automation systems use voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s Siri to control and operate various smart devices at home. However, in the past, these voice assistants primarily supported English and a few other popular languages, leaving out a vast majority of languages spoken by Indians. This language barrier became a significant hindrance to the widespread adoption of smart home devices in India.
Recently, some smart home automation systems have been emerging with Indian languages integrated into them. Integrating smart home automation systems with Indian languages makes them more accessible to a large population. This is the reason that many companies are adding Indian languages to the databases of their smart home automation systems.
Now that we have addressed the problem and the solution, let us talk a little about how integrating Indian languages into home automation systems benefits the users.
-Integrating smart home systems makes them more accessible to non-English-speaking Indians. This in turn increases convenience and the confidence with which they use technology. Being able to command their devices in a language they know well also improves their overall user experience with home automation. So, when they say “Google, laitlu off cheyandi”, the lights will get switched off immediately. And if they say “Alexa, naku koncham neeru tisukurandi” it will do nothing, because it is only integrated with Indian languages and not Indian house-help services.
-When a wider range of audience is able to access this kind of technology, the adoption rate is likely to increase. What is the point of the adoption rate increasing? Better connectivity amongst people across the country!
Does it affect the way we communicate with technology?
Yes! It revolutionizes how we communicate with technology by making it more natural and intuitive. It eliminates the need to learn a new language or use a language that one is not comfortable with to interact with smart devices. Users are then able to personalize their systems by customizing the wake words and responses in the language of their choice.
Finally, India is now in the wake of an automated future. Indian languages integrated into smart home automation systems means inclusivity, connectivity, and information for all in a world that is automated. Who would have thought that saying “Alexa, ajka samaachar padho” would lead to Alexa reading the breaking news for the day in Hindi?
So, what we gather from this entire discussion is that you won’t have to be taking those spoken English classes after all. Pert’s smart home automation systems are integrated with many Indian languages, making them one of the best smart home systems in India.

Q. How does using Indian languages in home automation systems make them more accessible and user-friendly?
A. Using Indian languages in home automation systems makes them more accessible and user-friendly by breaking down language barriers and making the technology more inclusive. Here are some reasons why:
- Widens the user base: By supporting Indian languages, home automation systems become more accessible to people who are not fluent in English. This widens the user base and makes the technology more inclusive.
- Better user experience: Using voice commands in Indian languages makes the user experience more intuitive and natural for Indian users. They can speak in their native language and feel more comfortable and confident while interacting with the technology.
- Easier adoption: People who are not comfortable with English may be hesitant to adopt new technology that only supports English language commands. By offering Indian language support, home automation systems become more approachable and easier to adopt.
- Reduces errors: When users can speak in their native language, they are less likely to make errors in pronunciation or phrasing. This reduces the chances of misinterpretation or miscommunication between the user and the system.
- Improved accessibility for the elderly: Indian languages in home automation systems can also improve accessibility for elderly users who may not be as comfortable with English language commands.
So, supporting Indian languages in home automation systems makes them more accessible, user-friendly, and inclusive. By breaking down language barriers, these systems become easier to use, adapt, and enjoy for all users.
