Beepers, Buzzers, and Voice Recognition
Depending on your application, it may be beneficial to add beepers or buzzers to your electronic device. When an end consumer clicks on a button, a beeping indication can add value to the user experience. A buzzer acting as an alarm in a circumstance such as a manufacturing plant could also be useful to indicate the completion of a certain task. Even further, voice recognition capabilities may be needed to wake up a device or communicate a demand to smart devices such as Siri, the Amazon Echo, or Google Assistant. Depending on your use case, Symmetry Electronics offers a vast portfolio of audio components to support your sound and speech detection needs.
