The all-in-one smart home speaker delivers streaming entertainment plus voice control of connected devices.

Las Vegas, NV – CES 2018 Sands Booth #41717 -- January 8, 2018 5:00 PM PT -- The Milo Smart Home Speaker (Milo) by Hogar Controls is the first-ever combination smart speaker and home hub to include support for Z-Wave Plus and adds multi-platform access for Zigbee, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices. Milo’s integrated smart hub feature also works with the Google Assistant, so you can ask questions, control devices throughout your home, stream music and more. 

A sleek and sexy design with on-board one-touch scene control and a smart home mobile app, Milo is an all-in-one solution for connecting you with what matters in your world. Milo leverages the popular Z-Wave ecosystem for control of smart home devices including lights, shades, locks, thermostats, garage door openers, and more; Milo also works with the Google Assistant, so it can stream music, news, weather, and so much more. Milo can be both a hands-free speaker or one-touch controller of your favorite scenes.

Smart speakers have exploded in growth over the past few years and led to a new wave of consumers discovering the power and convenience of a smart home. Consumers want easy access to their technology, using a combination of physical control, mobile app monitoring and voice commands to interact with their smart devices. Milo represents a complete shift in the design of smart home technology; before Milo, users would need to buy a smart home hub, a smart speaker and external controller devices to create the same level of convenience in the home. Milo solves this by being an all-in-one device with Z-Wave Plus hub functionality that works with the Google Assistant for voice control and streaming, and on-board one-touch scene control built into the glass top.

With premium audio technology, compact industrial design and an integrated smart home hub, Milo is a complete voice-powered entertainment and smart home solution, right out of the box.
