Introduction

WisCore is RAKwireless new product. It`s an open source hardware product which built in Amazon Alexa Voice Service function. WisCore will help designer focus on the application design, design different product type which supported Alexa Voice Service smart product.

WisCore base MT7628 chipset. It`s support 2 * UART interface, it`s used for smart home field or robot product. Also, WisCore use a powerful codec on the board. This chip can implement ASR function, user will ask keyword ‘Alexa’ to trigger our module.

WisCore Mic is an independent Microphone accessory, it`s a Microphone array to support many advance features, such as far field, user can talk with microphone away from 15 feet. Or sound located, using the microphone array will locate the user sound, the direction.

Application

The robot built in Alexa
☼ Using WisCore to connect with current robot. User can control the robot move through UART interface. If user add a WisCam modul, this demo will support voice control and video.
Talking smart fridge
☼ When user need to purchase some food, user can ask Alexa directly to order them which you want. Also, when you are cooking in the kitchen.
The middleware of embedded gateway
☼ Base on WisCore, user can work some accessories to build a home alarm system. Such as WisCore-Z-wave, WisCore-Bluetooth or WisCore-LTE accessories.
The choice of intelligent security system model:
☼ Stay Arm Mode: Somebody is in the house, such as morning or evening.
☼ Away Arm Mode: There is no body in the house, such as the working day.
☼ Night Arm Mode: People are sleeping in the house
☼ Disarmed Mode: Will not trigger the alarm
