Poland Echo gets a voice

Residential
Echo Investment plans to equip all its apartments with voice-controlled smart home systems that use the Amazon Dot speaker.

The first 150 apartments to be delivered with the system will be built in the fourth stage of the ENTER estate in Naramowice in Poznań. The project is to be handed over by the end of 2022.

Being concerned about the comfort and security of our clients, we are constantly looking for innovative solutions to improve the quality of their lives. That is why we were the first to include smart systems as standard, and now we are adding voice control.
Dawid Wrona, the sales director for residential projects at Echo Investment.
