Abstract (en)

A verbal remote control device receives requests, such as for elevator service, unlocking vehicles, controlling alarms, by using voice recognition to decode spoken requests of the user, the device using speech synthesis to respond to the user with information, or to request information from the user. The device may be one that normally has a low power consumption dormant mode and is awakened in the proximity of apparatus to be controlled thereby either by beacons or by a user activated switch. In an elevator system, the device is used to enter, cancel and change destination-type requests for elevator service. <IMAGE>
