You must have bought a speaker, but have you bought a intelligent speaker? Is it really smart as it’s said? Help you order food, song,air conditioner,shopping,etc. so that you can sit and lie down to enjoy the smart!
The intelligent speaker is actually an upgrade product of the speaker, a modern tool for controlling household appliances through voice and helping to surf the Internet. At present, the larger number of sales belongs to individual big brands, but the largest number is the low-end intelligent speaker products produced by many small manufacturers. Why such low-end intelligent speakers will be popular in the market? The main reason is that such products are cheap and good color in appearance,and the price is really low. The actual function still needs quality control check to control, which can be carried out in the middle of production. In During Production Inspection introduces the rules and significance of mid-term inspection to help buyers control product quality.
With such a low price, no doubt consumers will be confused.Can factories make money? This price is not even enough for the cost. In fact, the market competition for intelligent speakers is fierce. Some brands have been refreshing price all the time,which cause factories to lower cost constantly.The most important thing in cost is chips. The rest are generally used parts. If even the chip and motherboard are used, then this intelligent speaker is really only an electrical appliance. As a matter of fact, the factory produces an intelligent speaker with dozens of RMB, and the materials used are not only ” second – hand”. Without using quality control check, suppliers are kept in the dark.
The factory’s production is to aim at saving energy and money,”pile up” intelligent speakers with waste materials. The brackets for assembling parts inside the speaker are all yellow, white and gray plastic parts. Because the production of plastic will cause certain air pollution,cheap plastic parts are usually produced in small workshops in remote areas.In addition,most factories will choose to recycle similar fabrics and cotton for the materials used to fill the sound chamber, and some excessive factories will not even bother to stuff cotton in order to get a lower price. In quality control check, the inspector must tear down a product and check the internal structure to see if the cotton is stuffed.
Let’s talk about ” intelligence” again. Such a production process can only be regarded as disassembly and assembly. Will the product still have intelligent functions? People are familiar with the matter disclosed: ” Almost all brands do not care about the usage of functions when looking for a OEM. ” With the development of intelligent technology in recent years, the performance of the core chip has greatly improved in the industry of intelligent speakers, but the main hardware and supporting facilities have not been updated much, except microphones, speakers, Bluetooth, WiFi, amplifiers and so on. Base on this,some brands have added a display screen.And in functions, most of them play music, set alarm clocks,ask questions and get answers,etc., so gradually the intelligent speakers have gone further and further from emphasizing applications and functions at first to pursuing low prices now. In order to ensure that the speakers ordered by the buyer are indeed intelligent, it is recommended to use quality control check,you can read Pre Shipment Inspection , this article helps you check every intelligent function before shipment.
Brands not only gave low prices in the early stage, but also demanded strictly in after-sales requirements.It requires factory to provide unconditional warranty replacement and also undertake a certain proportion of unsalable inventory recovery.Even if such products can be circulated in the market easily, they must be controlled in many ways. For example, before leaving the factory, third-party inspection companies should carry out quality control check to pick out defective products or even defective products that can not even meet the function requirements.
The low-end intelligent speaker is only one case among many intelligent products, which is unable to break through the innovation of each link and can only produce low-end products under strong pressure. It finally turns into price war one after another . But behind the low price, it is to cut corners by factory to use inferior accessories at the expense of recycling harmful products. In this case, without quality control check, it is difficult to imagine the impact of the product after it has been gone to the market. While intelligent products cannot bring new ideas to the market, they are constantly bringing unimaginable potential hazards to users.
