What you need to do is to ask or give voice demand such as “Sanbot, I’d like to order pizza”, “Sanbot, turn on the TV” or “Sanbot, play music”, etc. With the mobile APP Q-Link, the family members are able to control Sanbot Nano to monitor each corner of your home from anywhere in the world.
Powered by Amazon Alexa, Sanbot Nano can only speak and recognize English language right now and the intelligent home service robot is mainly to be sold for families and distributors in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany.
